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

By Pamelascott

Harry Potter thinks he is an ordinary boy - until he is rescued by an owl, taken to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, learns to play Quiddich and does battle in a deadly duel. The Reason ... HARRY POTTER IS A WIZARD!

*** [Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. They were the last people you'd expect to be involved in anything strange or mysterious, because they just didn't hold with such nonsense] ***

(Bloomsbury Publishing, 39 June 1997, paperback, 223 pages, bought from WH Smith)

So, I've read the Harry Potter books at least eight times and seen the movies many more times. I'm sort of a Harry Potter freak. I (usually) re-read the books once a year but I haven't for a while. I love Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. It's sort of like a really cool boarding school story with magic and dragons and other cool stuff. I'm 37 and every year I still hope I get an owl with my Hogwart's Letter. The weird thing is, I've seen the movies so many times they play out in my head when I'm reading the books. I also have the illustrated editions. This is, hands down one of the best books ever written.
