Recently I have read Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J.K. Rowling and I thought I would write a blog post about it.
My friends couldn’t believe that I had never read Harry Potter books before. I have tried but never really got into them. The film had put me off. However my friend lent me their copy of The Philosophers Stone a few weeks ago. It’s an enjoyable book, when I actually gave it time, I couldn’t put it down.
Basically, Harry Potter’s parents were killed when Harry was little and he went to live with his Aunt and Uncle – which he hated thoroughly! Harry started receiving hundreds of letters which his evil uncle just burnt. However they didn’t know that the letter was to tell Harry that he had been accepted into Hogwarts. As days went on the Uncle took Harry away and then Hagrid (school assistant) gave them all the good news – well good news to Harry anyway.
I really like this book because most of the time there’s always something big or small happening, the writing is brilliant which keeps you interested. I struggled to keep interest towards the end when the action got less and less but I kept on going and glad it didn’t put me off the book.
I would recommend this book for 7 – 12 year olds (boys or girls!) I give it five out of five stars!
My next book in the series is the “Chamber of Secrets”.
Has anyone read this book? Do you love Harry Potter?
