Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Reviewd by Cynthia Hatfield-Garcia

Hardcover: Sep 1998, 309 pages.Paperback: Sep 1999, 312 pages

Harry Potter has never been the star of a Quidditch team, scoring points while riding a broom far above the ground. He knows no spells, has never helped to hatch a dragon, and has never worn a cloak of invisibility.
All he knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley - a great big swollen spoiled bully. Harry's room is a closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn't had a birthday party in eleven years.
But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to an incredible place that Harry ­ and anyone who reads about him - will find unforgettable.
For it's there that he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic in everything from classes to meals, but a great destiny that's been waiting for him... if Harry can survive the encounter.

The Sorceror's Stone is are a must read for people who enjoy books in the adventure genre.It isn't a hard book to read, so I recommend it for readers around the ages of eight and older.I personally enjoyed the book even though it gave a false perception of witches and wizards,never-the-less I did not find the book harmful.The beginning is a bit slow but I promise after the second chapter it gets alot more interesting.It starts out with a Cinderella-like beginning when the reader figures out that there's something special about Harry and he's being constantly punished for it,(like Harry having to sleep in the cupboard.)But unlike the beginning there's a happy ending that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
