Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

My Rating: 5 stars

This is the first book in the amazing Harry Potter series. What can I possibly say? This series is my all-time favorite. J.K. Rowling is an amazing writer.

In the beginning of this book, young Harry Potter is living with his cruel Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia, and cousin Dudley. He wishes he could escape from this terrible place. He hates them, and they hate him. On his 11th birthday, Harry receives a visit from a special guest, telling him that he is a wizard and the story about his deceased parents. Harry then realizes why weird things have been happening, and why his aunt and uncle isolate him from others.

Harry then goes to Hogwarts, where he discovers friendship, magic and acceptance. But, being Harry Potter, nothing is easy. He learns about Voldemort, who tried to kill him when he was younger. He was the one who killed his parents. Harry and his friends Ron and Hermione search for the Sorcerer’s Stone, which they think Voldemort is after. In the end, Harry finds out how powerful he really is.
