My Rating: ★★★★★
Genre: Fantasy; children’s literature
Plot: Harry, who has grown up with his horrible relatives, finds out he is a wizard. But he’s not just any wizard– he is the boy who somehow stopped the darkest wizard of all time when he was just a baby. Harry goes to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he gets more than he bargained for as far as hands-on education is concerned. With his friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger by his side, makes it through challenges to once again confront Lord Voldemort, and also he makes it through his final exams.
My Thoughts: It had been a while since I read this book. A good three years at least. But it was the book that started it all. It’s an amazing beginning to a magical series, and it’s pretty much flawless.
