Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is the first book of the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. Harry Potter is a legend, in the wizarding world that is. In the “muggle world”, he is just an orphan who lives with his aunt, uncle, and cousin, in which he knows nothing of being a wizard. But that all changes when a letter arrives, marked with his name, delivered by an owl. The letter contains an invitation from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In the wizarding world, Harry learns about his famous past and makes new friend. He finally feels at home and has several adventures awaiting for him.
This book was the beginning of my obsession with the Harry Potter series. I love the authors writing style, like how she manages to describe everything so perfectly. I love the whole plot of the story, it's uniqueness and how it brings history of real life events into the book. And the twists that come along with it, it has the perfectly creative. After reading this book, you will automatically long to have powers and to be able to go to the wizarding world, but mostly you would wish you went to Hogwarts. This book helps stimulate imagination, creativity, and shows the value of friendship.
