HP and the Sorcerer's Stone

By: J.K Rowling


A boy, taken from innocence after the death of his parents, learns that he is a wizard and gets enrolled into Hogwarts. After befriending two students, Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger, they go on quests to find out the origins of the mysterious Sorcerer's Stone. With the help of Hagrid, Dumbledore, and his friends, they face dangers like three headed dogs, flying keys and moving tree branches. After finding solving the quest, they find out the person who was responsible for the deaths of many wizards and witches and as well as Harry's Parents.


It uses a combination of colloquial/complex language, but it is very simple to understand as it uses more everyday language for conversations and complex language for more detailed background information on the story itself.


As a whole, the book was fantastically interesting, adventurous, exciting, and great for readers of all ages. The book itself was a great example of a fantasy book done right and can easily be comparable to Lord of the Rings because the plot surrounds itself in the magical place of Hogwarts, a School for wizards and witches. Along with interesting Characters like Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger, who go on adventures like to the forbidden forest, the stadium for quidditch, and as well as find out the origins of " He who must not be named." I recommend readers of all ages read this masterpiece because if you like fantasy, you will love the world of Harry Potter.
