Finally at 21 years of age, I get the chance to read this! I've been waiting for quite some time. A time when I could read them back to back, with no interruptions. And that time is now! I loved all the movies, so I was pretty sure I'd love the books just as much.

The adventures of Harry, Ron, and Hermonie are so great that I wished I was children with them! The tales they weave and the trouble they get in is such a great pace for children. Something that the movies left out is a lot of things about Neville! I loved him in the movies! :)

Rowling is such an amazing storyteller, and I really wished I had read these before.

What an incredible world J.K. Rowling built. I loved it, and was officially addicted to all things Harry Potter by the end of the book. Hogwarts is magical, the villain is scary, and despite creating a huge cast of characters, Rowling is able to make each character distinct and interesting. The plot is fabulous, the seeds of an amazing series are well-laid, and even though the beginning is slow, I recommend this book to everyone.
Good Points

J.K Rowlings Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone takes place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the present day. When a 12 year old boy named Harry Potter, starts his first year at Hogwarts, he meets his two best friends Ron and Hermione. Then, strange things begin to happen. Students in the school are getting killed and everyone cant figure out why this is happening. A teacher in the school is acting very strange, while Albus Dumbledore, the head master of the school, and other teachers suspect the evil Lord Voldemorts powers are gradually becoming stronger and that he is the one causing all of this. Everyone says the evil Lord Voldemort has lost his powers, or has he? Harry, Ron, and Hermione try to solve why these terrible crises are happening in the school. Who is behind all this? Has Lord Voldemort risen again, or is someone else causing all this trouble?



            Rowlings famous, first book of the series is a very well written, suspenseful, exciting book that wont let you stop reading. Every page you turn leads to another exciting event. This book isnt like any other books. Rowling said, The idea just simply fell into my head. This book has won the National Book Award (UK), the Gold Medal Smarties Prize, and the Parenting Book of the Year.



            Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone is a really good book for ages around 12 all the way to adults. This book isnt anywhere similar to a book you might read. For people who love fantasy and magic, this is the perfect book for you. Once you finish this book, you wont be able to wait to read the second book, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, of this terrific series.

I had very high hopes for it because it is so popular, but I guess popular opinion is stupid. I can see why elementary and middle graders would like this, but the teens and adults who like the book must be very stupid and uneducated.
I was thoroughly disappointed.

Cool concept. Magic is awesome.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone is the first of seven Harry Potter books. Harry Potter seems to be just an average boy with a random light bolt scar but turns out he is anything but average. He is a wizard. On his eleventh birthday strange things start to happen. Owls are flying around his house in bright sunny daylight dropping letters for him everywhere. The Dursleys whom he lives with is not happy about this. Harry can tell they know something that theyre not telling him. The letters he receives says he is going to the best school of witchcraft and wizardry, Hogwarts. He goes but with many questions.  Harry meets a few friends along the way and finds some trouble. As Harry learns of his about past, he learns more quickly that it isnt as unknown as he thought, the whole Wizarding World knows hes name and hes story. With hes fame comes enemies he would never have dream. Good friends, good laughs, and has its share of trouble.

Harry Potter is a wizard almost killed by the greatest wizard of them all, Voldemort. His parents were klled and for 11 years he must live with his aunt and uncle, the Dursley's. On his 11th birthday he gets a visit from Hagrid, the game keeper of Hogswart, the school for witches and wizards. He learns about his past and who he is and goes to the school with Hagrid. There he meets friends, Ron and Hermoine, and they can't escape trouble around the school. They learn too much about the school and its secrets until they get involved in a serious and dangerous mystery where Harry will meet once again whith the person who killed his parents.

Once faced with Voldemort he escapes death again and is the hero of the school. This book was very enjoyable. It is a wild ficticious tale about magic and adventure. My favorite character was Harry Potter. He isn't the perfect Angel, but he is a good kid anyway. He is so happy to find out that he is a wizard. He is so nice ! to those smaller than him and those who get picked on. He tries to understand people and their actions.

MY favorite part is when Harry win the Quidditch match for his House and shows that he is just as good as his father was. I think this book is for anyone who has a large imagination. Even if you do not think you would enjoy a book about magic you should still read the book. Nothing like this book has ever been written and you don't know if you like something new if you don't try it. This book is for all ages. If you're young have someone read it to you. If you are old this book is just fun to read on your own. I really enjoyed this book and most people do so read Harry Potter and the Sorcerors Stone!

I loved that book and it was so exciting. My favorite character was Rebues Hagrid, because he had such a cool sounding voice and he got kicked out of Hogwarts!!

I have read all three of the Harry Potter books and I have to say I can't wait for the next one to be released. They were excellent. I purchased them to read to my daughter and realized she is still to young, but then I couldn't put the book down myself. I would recommend these books for not only older children but for adults as well. Bravo to J.K. Rowling for an excellent series.
