Synopsis: Harry Potter thinks he is an ordinary boy. He lives with his Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and cousin Dudley, who are mean to him and make him sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. (Dudley, however, has two bedrooms, one to sleep in and one for all his toys and games.) Then Harry starts receiving mysterious letters and his life is changed forever. He is whisked away by a beetle-eyed giant of a man and enrolled at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The reason: Harry Potter is a wizard! The first book in the “Harry Potter” series makes the perfect introduction to the world of Hogwarts.
Review: I have already read this series before, but I decided I wanted to re-read it, it just felt right for this Christmas. I forgot how much I loved this series! I also forgot how much of it they didn’t include in the movies. Where is Peeves! I love him, he is one of my favorite characters. I also adore the Weasley twins, without them this series would not be complete. They are definitely an amazing comic relief. This book series is so easy to get into, and the way J.K. Rowling writes, it is so flowing. Nothing feels forced, you can read it all very easily. I also think they should have cast me for the role of Hermione Granger, as she is described to have “bushy brown hair and large front teeth”, which is literally me whenever I was her age. Plus I am an insufferable know it all, which is why I am now home-schooled. Anyways, this book was very enjoyable, and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series again.
I give this book 5/5 stars and would recommend it to everyone.
