The second novel, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, is 119.54 percent longer than the first. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is 157.63 percent longer than the first book in the series. All seven Harry Potter novels comprise a total of 1,084,170 words. The 1,084,170 words are spread across 6,095 pages.
Words can be split into letters, which are then split into sounds. There are about six letters to each sound in English, so one word can be decomposed into about six parts.
In Harry Potter, the average word length is 5.8 characters. This includes spaces, punctuation marks, capital letters, lowercase letters, digits, and some special symbols such as æ, ő, and ă. Only words that are complete sentences can be divided up into letters; conjunctions (connectors) like and, but, or, not only are not included in this average, they have a higher weight in terms of number of words than other types of sentence elements. Also excluded are numerals (1, 2, 3), proper names (John, Peter, Susan), and function words (the, a, an).
All things considered, 5.8 characters is fairly short for modern writing. Generally, the shorter the better. Short sentences are easier to write, read, and understand. Long sentences are difficult to compose efficiently because we need markers to indicate the end of one sentence and the beginning of the next.
This gives us an average of 1772 words per page.
So, the longest book in the series is 78 percent as long as the shortest one. Not very long at all!
The overall trend for the series is for it to get longer as it goes on. However, this isn't true for all children's books. According to research done by John Green and David Levithan, most kids' books fall between 100,000 and 250,000 words in length. So, rather than getting longer, as a whole, the Harry Potter books fall short of this range, which means they're not only serialized but also divided into volumes.
However, even though the series as a whole is longer than most other children's books, its length varies a lot from book to book. The first book in the series is only 56,844 words long, while the last one is 157,630 words long. This means that almost half of the series is made up of books that are less than 70 percent of the entire set!
