Which part of the Harry Potter books should an adult start with who has seen the movies and doesn't want to start with the first one because it is childish?

Answer from: Andrey Smirnov:
I am interested in everything, bit by bit. By profession is an analyst in IT. Self-taught musician...

Since the first book "children's" (which is nevertheless fun to read), then the second, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" I don't recommend it to you either, because it doesn't go far from the first one.
All "action", intrigue and dark atmosphere begins with the third book, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban". And from the fourth book onwards the character assassinations began which with each succeeding book became more and more common (and useless, just standing there a character you don't need, and suddenly bang! And he's dead)).
So read from "Prisoner of Azkaban", but I still advise you to read it from the beginning, you won't regret it.

Answer from: Alexander:

The hardest one is the fifth one.
I don't know anyone who doesn't like it, and... That's where childhood ends forever.
Although the fourth is also good, in my opinion, it's more positive, but it still describes the gradual process of Harry's growing up.
