Harry Potter Vs. Lord Of The Rings

It appears J.K. Rowling was more than a little inspired by Tolkien's classic  fantasy series the Lord Of The Rings when writing her Harry Potter series, and this cute chart aims to prove it by illustrating the similarities between the characters and plot points in both series.

Check out all 4 sections of the chart at the link below, and see for yourself how Harry Potter literally owes his life to J.R.R. Tolkien.

Many aspects of both these stories (and Star Wars, and lots of others) are typical characteristics of hero/quest tales. A difficult task/journey; good vs. evil; orphaned, unlikely hero; wise mentor; loyal sidekicks...the list goes on.
