Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Released: October 1, 1998
Harry Potter has never been the star of a Quidditch team, scoring points while riding a broom far above the ground. He knows no spells, has never helped to hatch a dragon, and has never worn a cloak of invisibility.
All he knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley—a great big swollen spoiled bully. Harry's room is a tiny closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn't had a birthday party in eleven years.
But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to an incredible place that Harry—and anyone who reads about him—will find unforgettable. For it's there that he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic in everything from classes to meals, but a great destiny that's been waiting for him... if Harry can survive the encounter.
Okaay.. I know I knoww,. Why haven't I read this book like years ago... Well I have a good reason.. Actually I don't I just haven't read it. Let me say this, I was a harry potter fan when I grew up. I loved the movies, but never really thought about actually reading the books. Well I am now.. And I loved this book!
It was soo fantastic.. I loved loved loved.. J.K Rowling does a fantastic job at creating the world of Harry Potter. When I read this book I really wanted to be in the book, and attend Hogwards. It was just beautifully written.
The characters were also fantastic. Harry. I loved how he took action, and to responsibility for his actions, and wanted to help out the wizards. Ron & Hermionie were such good friends, I would Love to have a silly friend like Ron , and a loyal smart friend like Hermionie.
