I can swear if you tried this one then you can be able to resist your urge to read the whole series. This book is worthy enough to have a best place in your book shelf. It allows you to be immersed in a world of fantasy, where real-world issues matter less and you can focus on the joy of the magical world J.K Rowling has created.
Pick up the book and become a Potterhead!

The book was amazing . I reread it and it was still amazing . The movie is also great ,but in my opinion the book is better
I Reader the book and i like it very much . Its a great Story and there are so much information which aren't in the Film
Insane Book ..You would like the movie more but if you read the book then you would get more info about the events and all like 1st event was covered in just 1 min in movie but in book a few pages which give you more interesting content for reading

It is just so good! 👏🏼 Really, that I can read this as a 7 year old child and again as an adult, and it still holds the same captivating energy and without lack for deep words/ tone. It shows that children's writing can be full bodied and doesn't have to be so simple an adult is bored. It's a beautiful skill to write one thing for all ages. ⭐
Every night I'm rereading these books and it is SO hard to go to sleep because I'm gripped!! 🤩 it got me good
Also impressed with how many words or phrases I wasn't familiar with. Love love love the depth to this writing and this world, how it can be read simply or analysed further. And love to be reminded of what is changed for the films.
Also impressed how much happens in such short a book. Kept looking at pages left thinking: how could all this happen? The writing is full and concise.
🤔 Though I do keep thinking about how Voldemort couldn't have gotten the stone without Harry being there anyway... but trying to reason that out of my mind! Except for that..
Brill. So glad I'm reading again 📚

The writing in some parts was worded strangely. The story itself is pretty good. The world building is outstanding.
No matter how many times I read this book it doesn’t get old. Would 100% recommend. Even if you’ve watched the films and think you don’t need to, the books are far far better!
Vidunderlig magisk børnebog. Den har unægteligt sat dybe spor i mig, samt en forventning omkring niveau for børnelitteratur
Will always love harry potter, although the first book isn’t necessarily my favourite. A bit over-edited i think - prefer the later longer books that rowling edited herself!
Obviously you need to read Harry Potter regardless of your age! This first one here is just a tester, the books will grow deeper and darker along with our characters and the storyline.
