A teen review of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling.
“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s stone is the first book to the Harry Potter series; the book is about just an ordinary boy with a scar on his head who lives on Privet Dr. and lives with his aunt, uncle, and cousin, Harry lives with them because his parents when he was one years old died because they were supposedly in a car said by his aunt and uncle, Harry hates his aunt, uncle, and cousin, his cousins bullies him while no one cares and his aunt and uncle never talk about his parents.
One day a letter came to their house addressed to Harry Potter, he had picked it up but his uncle took it away for a reason he did not know, but then repeatedly these letters came and his aunt and uncle started to panic, Harry not knowing why and wanting to know, they make them all leave thinking the letters will stop coming. They went to a place very far away, but then suddenly while everyone was asleep a big figure busts through the door giving Harry a letter that he will soon be attending Hogwart, a school for wizardry and witchcraft. Harry is now a wizard; he meets two people Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger who become his friends. He faces weird and new things, and adventures.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is a very interesting and enjoyable book with so much description and detail, it has many funny parts, and it almost never gets boring. This is a good book (and series) to read if you like fiction books and/or adventure books; the age rating is ages 7 years old and up.
