Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
What can I say about Harry Potter that has not been said already?
let’s see when you check out my review of
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
You all know the story of Harry Potter, the Boy Who Lived. Some of you love it, some of you hate it, and others may simply be indifferent.
What attracts me to this story, is the attention to the detail. How every time I reread those books, I find something new! Like Dumbedore’s apparel!
“He was tall, thin, and very old, judging by the silver of his hair and beard, which were both long enough to tuck into his belt. He was wearing long robes, a purple cloak that swept the ground, and high-heeled, buckled boots. His blue eyes were light, bright, and sparkling behind half-moon spectacles and his nose was very long and crooked, as though it had been broken at least twice. This man’s name was Albus Dumbledore.”
Albus Dumbledore was wearing high-heeled boots!!!!
Not to mention he even then refused to be intimidated by Lord Voldemort and would call him by his name!
“I have never seen any reason to be frightened of saying Voldemort’s name.”
I know these may seem small to most people. But for me, discovering those small details, after all these years of rereading the series?? It’s priceless!
Every single one description is amazing. There are enough details to give us a good idea of what the author means, but leaves enough for our imagination to run wild.
In my opinion, this is a book that every adult and child should give a chance to. That’s why I recommend it to everyone.
All in all, my friend’s event is a good excuse for me to reread yearly the Harry Potter series. And it’s an excuse I use wholeheartedly and with no regrets.

About the Book:
When a letter arrives for unhappy but ordinary Harry Potter, a decade-old secret is revealed to him that apparently he's the last to know. His parents were wizards, killed by a Dark Lord's curse when Harry was just a baby, and which he somehow survived. Leaving his unsympathetic aunt and uncle for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry stumbles upon a sinister mystery when he finds a three-headed dog guarding a room on the third floor. Then he hears of a missing stone with astonishing powers, which could be valuable, dangerous - or both. An incredible adventure is about to begin!
