Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
By: J. K. Rowling
Published by: First Scholastic
Recommendable for people who:
Synopsis: 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 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 un-forgettable.For it’s there that he finds not only his 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.
I really enjoyed this book even as a child. The magic from J.K. Rowling’s creations were amazing throughout my childhood. Whether it was Harry fighting a man with multiple faces, dragons, or even another wizard, it was enjoyable to read. I recommend this masterpiece to anyone who is willing to read it. The most shocking part to me was when Harry discovered the Mirror. Who would have thought that the school had something like that? I also thought his new Cloak of Invisibility was cool as well.
