Dark times have come to Hogwarts in this fifth year. After the Dementors' attack on his cousin Dudley, Harry Potter knows that Voldemort will stop at nothing to find him. There are many who deny the Dark Lord's return, but Harry is not alone: a secret order gathers at Grimmauld Place to fight against the Dark forces. Harry must allow Professor Snape to teach him how to protect himself from Voldemort's savage assaults on his mind. But they are growing stronger by the day and Harry is running out of time.



Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was J.K. Rowling's first novel, followed by the subsequent six titles in the Harry Potter series, as well as three books written for charity: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. The Harry Potter novels have now sold over 450 million copies worldwide and been translated into 78 languages.

REVIEW:
This has got to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest book I have ever read.
It's gigantic.
You would think it would be daunting but actually, while it took me forever and a day to complete, it flowed so well that I always had a hard time putting it down. Life just got in the way for me, not the book.
This one had me more sad at times. It had moments that you didn't want to happen and they still did. I'm left with a 'Poor Potter' feeling. It sucks. Yet I want more.
The one thing I will tell you about the story is that this is the book where Harry finally understands who he is and matures some. So many of his questions, even ones he didn't know he had were answered. It brought a lot of everything together.
Still it's not over, so I must continue.


4/5

  1. Is this the first that you've read the Harry Potter books? When I read it in high school, I had enough time to read that I just tore right through it, but I'm definitely less likely to read bigger books now. I think that's partially because I like to constantly have book reviews for my blog, so I'm working to relax into a slower pace so I can read more thoughtfully and not be so intimidated by big books!

  3. That's my favourite in the series. It's when things start getting exciting - it's more than just the kids at school.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
