Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? The second reading of a book is more interesting than the first reading. Use specific reasons to support your details.

Reading plays an integral role in people’s lives. Some people might think that the second reading of a book is more interesting than the first reading because they can have a close look at the content again. I, however, disagree with the statement that the second reading of a book is more interesting than the first reading for two reasons. Firstly, the first reading allows people to have tension. Secondly, imagining abilities can be more developed in the middle of the first reading. Most of all, people have tension when they encounter books for the first time. It is commonly observed that first reading makes people to anticipate about it in general. To be more specific, back in high school, I was a big fan of Harry Potter. No book is so interesting to read as Harry Potter is. As the genre of Harry Potter is science fiction, the book triggers reader to imagine latter contents. Thus, the book made me to develop idea in a creative way. The second reading would be less interesting than the first reading as dramatic situations like main character’s death crisis or opportunities to survive proceed. In detail, the situation that Harry Potter fights with Voltmot allows reader to concentrate more on the book when the reader first read the book. Furthermore, people can imagine more with the first reading. Most people do not know contents until they read the books. To illustrate more specifically, Harvard University conducted a research with 100 students. 80 percent of students read “Animal Farm” only for a time while other 20 percent of students read the book repetitively. The majority of students creatively imagined the following content because they read for the first time than the other rest of the students were bored to encounter the book. The research well shows the graph and percentage of the fact that the first reading is more interesting than the second reading of a book in general. To summarize my point, there are no reasons to oppose that the first reading is more interesting than the second reading of a book for two reasons I have mentioned up above.
