Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

The Beginning of Something Special!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is the beginning to one of the most iconic series ever! From this book spawned the other 6 legendary novels and the brilliantly adapted movies, this is one of my favorite series ever! It holds a special spot in my heart, growing up as the movies came out, always looking forward to the next one.

J.K. Rowling wrote this book and the 6 following it perfectly. She gave us everything needed for a fantastic story and delivered. The way it gave just the right amount of back story for Harry, his friends, the mythical creatures, and the world in general is fantastic. Other books I've read attempted to weave similar worlds and stories, none of them were quite as successful or interesting.

Reading about Harry and his first days as a wizard is awesome. From him getting his wand, the train ride to Hogwarts, and his first time at Hogwarts, it's an unforgettable experience. The intro to an incredible series, it is a must read for those who haven't. But then again, who hasn't read Harry Potter!
