Overview

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 to 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 unforgettable. For it’s there that he finds not only 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.

 

My review:

I’m a huge fan of Harry Potter series, yes. I remember the first time I read the book – it was so many years ago and I was just a kid. It was very interesting back then and I remember that I stayed late at night to read it again and again.

This book is puting you in another universe – in a place, in which you lost yourself in a magical journey. It makes you forget the read world and start dreaming about wizards, spells, potions and a magical school, which is dream for most of the children.

I can write lots of things about Harry Potter, but indeed you must read it by yourself so you can feel its magical fragrance. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is a beginning of a history, beginning of a epic series about the young wizard Harry and his friends Ron and Hermione. It’s a must read book for all children and also for adults as well.
