This was the start of it all! The start of the greatest series I have ever read. I have re-read this book more times than I can count and it holds up every single time. JK Rowling is a master. She creates the best worlds, and I wish I lived in them. I love every character (but Hagrid is my favorite). This story was magical and captivating and I think I might have to go re-read it yet again.

I have never read the Harry Potter series until a week ago. My husband loves it and begged me to read them. The first book is a really quick read. I found the story interesting and the characters engaging. It sets the stage nicely for the rest of the books. I am not converted into the full blown Harry Potter obsession, but I liked it enough to read the second book.

The sorcerers stone is a great start to the series. The storyline and character descriptions are well covered and have you quickly picking your favorites. Their quirks make them lovable and attitudes remind you of people that are already in your life. Great read. Love, love, love the harry potter series!

I remember reading this book for the first time and being absolutely sucked into this magical world and wishing so hard that I could be a student at Hogwarts. It’s truly a magical series and this is a great first book of a series. Really sucks you in

I love the simplicity yet magic that it is found in this book. I truly got to fall in love with each character, and J.K Rowling does a good job at connecting sequences. When I finished this book I couldn’t wait to keep up with the story line and jump into the second one!

This is my favorite book series ever! The first couple in the series are great for kids. They start getting pretty dark after that. I have read them several times and they always make me happy and help me escape the realities of life.

I picked this up in the 4th grade and instantly fell in love with the Harry Potter series. It was an awesome experience to "grow up with" the characters and I am so grateful that my school-age self happened to align with so many of the ages of the students in the books.

The book starts from the point of view of Harry's Uncle, who as he goes to work begins to notice strange things occurring, but as a Muggle ends up leaving these events aside, but scarcely did he know that on that particular day the wizarding world commemorated the Fall of you-know-who, and many of them in their happiness ended up leaving caution aside and letting themselves be seen by Muggles.
We followed the moment where Harry is left at the door of his uncles so he can live a normal life after the death of his parents, but what Dumbledore did not know was that by letting him live with his family, he would be condemning Harry to a Miserable childhood, because his uncles relegate him to a small room under the stairs and his cousin Duda mistreats him a lot. As he grows up, abnormal things surround the boy, and at every event he is punished by his uncles, who hide from Harry his true story, until his 11th birthday when the Hogwarts letters begin to arrive.

From there things change and change a lot, Harry discovers that he is known by the wizarding world, and that his parents did not die in a car accident, but rather they were killed by Voldemort an evil wizard, and he carries on the forehead the Mark of this battle, a ray-shaped scar. The story then follows with Harry's routine in his new life, he meets Ron and soon becomes friends, but his fame precedes him, and not everyone treats him with admiration, which soon becomes clear by the quarrels with Draco and Professor Snape , Who seem to hate Harry.
The narrative is very light and the reading flows quickly, the language is not difficult and at no time gets boring or loses its rhythm, the characters are all very well built, with special emphasis for Hermione that is very annoying as soon as it appears, but that Conquers us during the course of the plot, and makes us admire his intelligence and tenacity.
