Ever since I saw the HARRY POTTER movies, I’ve always wanted to start reading the book that started it all. I really enjoyed reading the book and recalling parts from the movie in my head. I was literally cheering, laughing and anxious to read to see what happens next. Now off to the next book. If you love HARRY POTTER, you’ve got to read this.

In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (1998), the extraordinary New York Times bestselling author J.K. Rowling unpacks a thrilling fantasy world full of magic, action, and humor. This book will please young adults and adults alike as the plot twists and turns while Harry begins his new life in the wizarding world, learning incantations and gaining courage. Rowling presents the idea of courage, showing that you can face your greatest fears, even if you don’t know what they are yet. At Hogwarts, Harry’s new school, there are four houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Harry is put into Gryffindor house because of his bravery, “You might belong in Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart, their daring, nerve, and chivalry set Gryffindors apart” (118). Bravery is a main theme in the book, and is present often, really striking its importance. The book is exhilarating, mystical, and breathtaking. With characters that practically leap off the page, and twists that will cause both fear and joy. Rowling wrote some very contrasting characters into the story, making them feel even more believable and real. With twists, Rowling builds up one expectation, letting you think that you know what will happen only for that vision to be shattered, and something different to happen. Full of imaginative situations, sympathetic characters, and key theme, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is a five out of five star book. The Thematic topic of courage is ever present, and as Dumbledore once said: “There are all kinds of courage,” (306). A magnificent read that you will not fancy putting down.

Recently, I read Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K Rowling. J.K Rowling lives in Scotland with her husband and her 3 children. She has written over 25 books but Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone was her first book published. The main character's name is Harry Potter and Harry hates his life on Privet Drive with his aunt, uncle, and cousin. Harry has been told all his life that his parents died in a car accident and he was not to bring up the subject. So when a half-giant called Hagrid shows up at his door with a letter that tells him he is a wizard who has been accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry he cannot believe it. Then Harry goes to Hogwarts and makes friends but faces Lord Voldemort once again. J.K Rowling didn’t really have a meaning for writing this book. She wrote the book for people's enjoyment. The only similarity between J.K Rowling’s life and the book was that it takes place in Britain. J.K Rowling never mentioned exactly why she wrote the book though. I thought that the book was incredibly interesting and had a lot of thought put into it. I would not change a thing about this book. Harry Potter books inspire me, they help me understand things that I have never noticed before. Harry Potter never lets me down. I would recommend this book to people from the ages of 11 and 16. If you read this book you must believe in magic and witches and wizards. Do not read this book if you are worried about your parents, the world ending, or death because this book WILL give you nightmares. You must be mature enough to handle the language and actions in this book. But otherwise, read the book; you will not regret it.
