Book Review: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K Rowling

In the first Harry Potter book, you are introduced to Harry Potter , his new life at Hogwarts and his new friends and enemies! He has just discovered the answers to all the strange things that have been happening. He is a wizard. For Harry being a wizard is the best thing that could possibly happen to him because living with his aunt, uncle, and cousin have been a living nightmare from the start. From being able to cast spells, fly on a broom, speak to snakes, and coming again Voldemort; there is nothing Harry Potter can’t do. Before he arrives at Hogwarts, Harry Potter learns about to importance of his name and how famous he is and why.

My Reaction:

I thought I would be too old to get into these books, but to tell you the truth there is not better time for me to start than now. Even though Harry is still younger in the first novel, there is story line that could be followed and enjoyed by people all of ages. If you love books with magic, fantasy, multi-dimensional characters that you can connect and bond with, and you love a good mystery, this is a great book for you. It’s one of the shortest books at about 300 pages and 13 chapters. It was an easy read and the story just flies right through. It is very well written and it’s great to know that you can read it decades after it was first released and it can feel like a brand new story.

Let me know what you think about the first book ! Review for book 2! Coming 🔜 .


  1. I loved the first Harry Potter book. Rawlings wove a story so clear I could see it unfolding in my imagination. So many surprises through magic were revealed that I really enjoyed. I learned that she used a lot of celestial names for her characters. The books become darker and darker so get ready to meet the personification of evil in he who cannot be named.

  2. I totally agree with you. I feel like I’m watching a movie as I am reading it and I can picture everything so perfectly. Not many writers can do this so effortlessly without losing the reader in wording. I can’t wait ! I’m about to be done with book 2!
