Bonjour, mes amis! I know that there are probably millions of book reviews on the Harry Potter series, but since it’s one of my favorites, I thought I’d do my own.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was written by J.K. Rowling and is one of the most popular books in the world. Rowling has a unique writing style- she describes everything. When I read her books, I feel like I’m a part of the story. I’m right there beside Harry, experiencing everything that he does, from Potions class to battling Lord Voldemort.
Rowling has created some of the most memorable characters. Harry is a worthy hero, Hermione, a rule-following and near-literal know-it-all, and Ron is, although not the brightest of the trio, one of the most loyal friends in all of fiction.
This compelling series begins with Vernon Dursley in utter confusion at all of the strange, cloaked people walking around and muttering about “The Boy Who Lived”. Later, the baby Harry Potter is placed on the doorstep of his aunt and uncle’s house. His parents have been killed.
11 years later, Harry has endured years of abuse from the Dursleys, his last living relatives. Most unexpectedly, he receives a letter inviting him to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After much fighting from his aunt and uncle, he finally leaves for Hogwarts with Hagrid, the gamekeeper of the school’s grounds. On his way, he meets Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, who become his best friends and stay with him throughout the whole series.
While at Hogwarts, Harry discovers a past he never knew about, how his parents were really killed, and so much more. He makes friends and enemies, struggles with some of his classes, loves others, and grows suspicious of one teacher working with Voldemort, the villain behind it all.
