1st couple were excellent... the third marginal, and the fourth awfull, IMHO. I still bought the 5th, but was so dissapointed, never got around to finishing it or purchasing the rest.
Not to mention, I started reading the series over 20 years ago, and waiting for the next in the series became quite annoying. Maybe you'll have better luck now that there's no waiting.
I wouldn't comapre them to Harry Potter. Potter is just mind candy. Potter pulls you in, but in a different, "light" way. Nothing light about Roland.
