I loved exploring the mystical world of Harry Potter. I felt scared, excited, and relieved for Harry and his friends all at different
times. Rowling magically blended together everything that you want from a book in a captivating and compelling tale.
This fantasy is extremely believable due to the fact that Hogwarts is like any other middle school; there always will be teachers you don't
particularly enjoy (Professor Snape), rivalries between fellow students (Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy), tons of homework, and great friendships
(Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger). This book is truly the work of a genius.

Perhaps it's because the book is not altogether too big, and the characters involved me, but I certainly enjoyed the read. The premise was fun, the introduction to Hogwarts was fun, the Sorting Hat was fun...easy to like whether adult or child. Good stuff.

HarryPotterFan, November 13, 2013 (view all comments by HarryPotterFan)
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling is the first uplifting and venturous novel in the Harry Potter series; taking place at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In this fantasy, Harry Potter and his new friends journey through Hogwarts, explore the wizarding world from his perspective, meeting plenty of foes, and making trouble all over. Rowling creates a wondrous world every reader will wish to be a part of, and creates very descriptively, the characters that you will fall in love with. This book contains everything a suspense lover is looking for; it’s a favorite because of all the adventure and magic contained within. You will be glued onto page after page, until the very end.

This book and the rest of this series started my reading craze when I was just a little girl. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is amazing as the start of a series that will live in the minds of the people that have read them as long as they live, just like me.

These were great books for someone who can believe in them. Very well written...alot of detail which enabled the reader to really visualize what was happening. Good story line...very easy to follow. Each character was described in excellent detail so you could really picture them in your mind. I would recommend this to anyone.

"Review" by , "[T]he rapturous reception of the Harry Potter books is heartening, because J.K. Rowling is a literary artist, and these three books possess more imaginative life than the majority of novels that are published in this country in any given year. They are full of marvelous invention and humor and fun, but they have more than that." (read the entire New Republic review here)
"Review" by , "A wonderful first novel....Harry is destined for greatness....Much like Roald Dahl, J.K. Rowling has a gift for keeping the emotions, fears, and triumphs of her characters on a human scale, even while the supernatural is popping out all over."
"Review" by , "Readers are in for a delightful romp with this debut from a British author who dances in the footsteps of P.L. Travers and Roald Dahl."
"Review" by , "Obviously, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone should make any modern 11-year-old a very happy reader. The novel moves quickly, packs in everything from a boa constrictor that winks to a melancholy Zen-spouting centaur to an owl postal system, and ends with a scary surprise."
"Review" by , "This hugely enjoyable fantasy is filled with imaginative details, from oddly flavored jelly beans to dragons' eggs hatched on the hearth. It's slanted toward action-oriented readers, who will find that Briticisms meld with all the other wonders of magic school."
"Review" by , "A charming, imaginative, magical confection of a novel."
"Review" by , "Rowling's wonderful ability to put a fantastic spin on sports, student rivalry, and eccentric faculty contributes to the humor, charm, and, well, delight of her utterly captivating story."
"Review" by , "Harry himself is the perfect confused and unassuming hero, whom trouble follows like a wizard's familiar. After reading this entrancing fantasy, readers will be convinced that they, too, could take the train to Hogwarts School, if only they could find Platform Nine and Three Quarters at the King's Cross Station."
"Synopsis" by , Rescued from the outrageous neglect of his aunt and uncle, a young boy with a great destiny proves his worth while attending Hogwarts School for Wizards and Witches.
