    1 thought on “Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

    1. I'm going to keep this brief since there isn't much to say that hasn't already been said. *clears throat*I think the reason I waited so long to read this series is because I just couldn't imagine myself enjoying reading about an eleven-year-old boy and his adventures at a school of wizardry. I thought it would be too juvenile for my taste. I was wrong, of course.I can honestly say that I loved every minute of this. It's a spectacular little romp with funny, courageous, and endearing characters t [...]

    2. Rereading for the 3rd time for the group read.Once upon a time, there was a 10th grader named Khanh who didn't get along with people very well. She wasn't an outcast in school, and all the bullying and teasing stopped with the commencement of high school, but she had always been a bookworm and has generally preferred the company of her own thoughts.Lunchtime had always been dedicated not to eating, but to sitting in the library, browsing through books.(Not to worry, she got her nutrition in 5th [...]

    3. I'm on page 27. I can already tell this is going to be a big hit someday. Everyone take note of this author. He's going places. Couldn't find him on Twitter, though. Wanted to tell him how great I thought page 23 was.

    4. IT'S HARRY FREAKIN POTTER OF COURSE I LOVE IT*reread in March 2017 (for the first time in like 5 years)(STILL WONDERFUL)

    5. Update September 2016: Currently rereading this series again! (I need to sort out my priorities.)I will never ever rate this lower than 5 stars. BEAUTIFUL.

    6. This is a disgrace to all pure bloods. My head looked quite dashing on that strange professor's head If only I could have extended my stay. Harry Potter This is not over yet.

    7. My original review was a comparison of sorts between Harry Potter and Twilight. However, this is stupid as the two are incomparable. Honestly, its not even worth discussing. Its not just that Twilight doesn't come close, it is the fact that Harry Potter transcends other similar works. Its peerless. To quote Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction: It "ain't the same fuckin' ballpark, it ain't the same league, it ain't even the same fuckin' sport." There was a day when I thought I needed to defend Harr [...]

    8. Review for Illustrated EditionPerfect. Duh.Re-Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas To YouOH LORDY. Every time I read this book it brings back so many memories, and also gets me excited to read the rest of the series again as well because there is so much foreshadowing!! For example:-Sirius Black is casually mentioned in the first chapter-Mrs. Figg is talked about a bit, as she looks after Harry from time to time (or all the time, ayyyy?)-it always cracks me up when Hagrid says you'd have to [...]

    9. ***Because I got hate in the comments for OMG swearing in a children's book review (which I get, I guess), DON'T READ THIS IF YOU ARE UNDER 18. Happy now, everyone?***Well, I did it. I FINALLY read my first Harry Potter bookd in the same year as its 20th anniversary no less.But better late than never, no?Annnnd I already ordered the illustrated hardback. And asked for the full hardcover set for Christmas. From my dad. Because nothing says, “I’m a thirty-fucking-five-year-old adult” like as [...]

    10. It's Always Great, Coming back HomeThere's a reason us, the Fans, feel that we're connected, no matter where we from, different culture, ethics, ageswe're all graduated from there.Hogwarts even like we were in same class,classmates, no matter which edition we read.Cause Harry Potter is not just a story.'s a LifeThe Boy Who Saved Flourished the Book IndustryIt's One of the most important novels in modern history, Sorry, it's The Most Important ONE.This Review also for those who hate the series !P [...]

    11. How can more than half of my friends be wrong with this?I have to get this right. As of this writing, I have 98 friends. 61 (62%) of them have read J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Out of those who read this, 39 (64%) rated this with 5 stars. 11 of them with 4 stars. All the others gave 3 or 2. Only 2 rated this with 1 star. One of them admitted not being able to finish it. She should not have rated it really since she did not read its entirety. (But she is my friend and [...]

    12. On my list of reasons why my daughters are the bestest thing to ever happen to me, Number 14,577 is that they gave me, at 41 years old, the perfect excuse to revisit the Harry Potter series. When my oldest angel told me she wanted to start reading the Harry Potter books, I couldn’t have been happier. As I was collecting all seven volumes off the shelf to bring up to her room, I started feeling nostalgic for the whole Hogwarts gang, and I realized that I’d never done more than a perfunctory r [...]

    13. ❝This boy will be famous. There won't be a child in our world who doesn't know his name.❞Everyone grew up with Harry Potter. They read all the books when they were young and watched all the films. They would re-watch and re-read them. They would fall in love with the Wizarding World and would completely adore Harry, Ron, and Hermione. They would talk about them non stop, about Hogwarts, about its teachings, about them wanting to become students there and pretending they are, about joining th [...]

    14. Re-Read 2017MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading ListI'M GOING TO ADD MY BIG OLE SPOILER THING FOR THOSE THAT HAVEN'T READ THESE BOOKS YET. I'M ALSO GOING TO ADD A FEW PICTURES THAT ARE IN THE BOOK SO YOU CAN SEE HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS AND RUN OUT AND BUY IT, IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY!LET US BEGIN!Poor Harry's parents were killed by VOLDEMORT! Yep, I said it :-) So Dumbledore (the head honcho) and the gang decide to leave Harry with his mother's sister, Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon and their brat of a s [...]

    15. Here are three reasons why Harry Potter rocks my socks:1.A Better WorldOne of the main reasons Harry Potter is so wonderful is because Rowling shows you a boring world; it is the world of reality, dry, boring and ordinary. Then under it she reveals fantasy; she reveals everything a reader longs for: she reveals pure escapism. I still want to go to Hogwarts. I always will. 2. We’re all a bit like HarryOkay so not many of us are orphans, and not many of us are practically abused in their own hom [...]

    16. “There are some things you can't share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.”Harry Potter is the most amazing series that I have ever read in my whole life, and it probably forever will be. I will never love any books as much as I love these. I don't think I have to tell you guys about how good this book is because most of you have already read it anyway.I haven't written a review so far because I just did not feel the need to put [...]

    17. One of my first jobs was at a bookstore. When I was a kid my Mom would take me to the mall and I would spend tons of time hanging out at Waldenbooks (who here remembers Waldenbooks?) Right when I became legally old enough to work, I went in and submitted my application and a few weeks later I was selling literature to the masses.Why do I tell you this story on this review, you ask? Well, at the time, young adult/teen literature consisted mainly of RL Stein, Christopher Pike, Beverly Cleary, Judy [...]

    18. This doesn't really need a review, does it?This series is brilliant and it will live on forever in our hearts and minds.

    19. As wonderful and magical as promised. Because I didn't remember the movie, the third act of the book was a delightful surprise to me.I wish I'd had this book when I was a kid, because the idea that someone could be special without knowing it, and then get to visit a special world where the things that made him different were the same things that made him awesome would have been really inspiring to me.Anne's finishing this, too, and I have to wait for her before I start in on the second book HUR [...]

    20. Can 35 Million Book Buyers Be Wrong? Yes.Taking arms against Harry Potter, at this moment, is to emulate Hamlet taking arms against a sea of troubles. By opposing the sea, you won't end it. The Harry Potter epiphenomenon will go on, doubtless for some time, as J. R. R. Tolkien did, and then wane.The official newspaper of our dominant counter-culture, The New York Times, has been startled by the Potter books into establishing a new policy for its not very literate book review. Rather than crowd o [...]

    21. I read this book a couple of years ago and, for some unknown reason, never continued on. It was just as wonderfully magical as I remembered, a breath of fresh air during what is usually a stressful time of year for me. I have yet to find a story that feels so pure and childlike that appeals to such a broad range of people. There’s something for everyone here; whether you are 10 or 100, Hogwarts is a place you can escape to and enjoy hearty adventures that you won’t find elsewhere. I truly lo [...]

    22. I’m putting aside precious reading time to try and formulate a review for y’all so you should be grateful (and not attack me for my rating)So clearly, I had a very very sad childhood since I had not read Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, or any other of those “must-read-or-else-you-never-experienced-happiness-as-a-child” kind of books. But I was actually a pretty happy kid. Go figure. Harry Potter #1 was a GOOD book. It was fascinating, it was adventurous, it was different, and it was also av [...]
