Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

So, I have read all of the Harry Potter books, and I decided I would make posts about all of them. There will be many spoilers, so I recommend reading the book before reading this.

A very short summary of the story:

Harry Potter is an orphan boy who was given to his last remaining relatives – the Dursleys – because his parents were killed by a well known dark wizard so feared, that people called him You-Know-Who instead of his proper name Voldemort. The Dursleys mistreated him because he was from a wizard family (which he later found out).

He is going to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, so he needs stuff to go. Hagrid, the Hogwarts gamekeeper who told him he was a wizard, led Harry to Diagon Alley, a place for wizards with so many shops, you could call it a mall. He then boards the train and meets his friends which he will have for more than 10 years. Hermione, Ron, and Neville.

At school he overhears Professor Snape, the Potions teacher, threatening Professor Quirell about something. He and his friends are suspicious of Snape the whole time and Harry is surprised when he faces off against Quirell. The power of the Sorcerer’s Stone (the thing Quirell/Voldemort was after) made harry burn Quirell’s face by touching it.

In the end he has to return to the Dursleys for summer.

Moments I liked:

When Harry met his future friends: Hermione (Granger), Ron (Weasley), and Neville (Longbottom). They are honestly such great characters, I think Harry chose the right friends.

When he entered Hogwarts (School of Witchcraft and Wizardry), it was honestly such a good moment – the Sorting, when he got put into Gryffindor, and the dinner in the great hall.

Most of the Quidditch games. It was in so much detail I could honestly visualize it in my head. I especially liked the fact they won around 2 of the games.

When Gryffindor got the Quidditch and House cups. I honestly didn’t understand Dumbledore’s logic, but at least it was satisfying when Gryffindor won the house cup.

What I think of the book:

It honestly was a great book. I wasn’t interested at first, because of course, it was the first book, first few chapters. I honestly loved the books after reading the first one and even read some in under 4 days! Honestly a great book, 10/10. But out of the Harry Potter books, 9/10.
