Book Review: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling (Spoiler Free)


I think at this point in time everyone knows what the Harry Potter series is about because they have seen the movies, read the books or both. So I feel like I don’t need to give a synapsis about any of these books. Since this is such a popular book series I thought I would write a review for each book and then once I read all of them do a whole series review.

The reason I didn’t read these books when I was younger like everyone else was simply because I didn’t have that much interest in any books back then. I was one of those kids who would rather play outside than sit and read. Clearly that has changed.

What did I think about the book? It was cute. I really like how random some of the things in the wizard world are. For example its 17 Sickles to 1 Galleon and 29 Knuts to 1 Sickle.  At times it did feel a little slow but I think that’s its mostly because of the world building and because its JK Rowling’s first book so I don’t really mind. Honestly you can’t be too hard on an author with their fist book. Otherwise, it was really good. I ended up giving it five stars. Once things really started to get going I didn’t want to put the book down. Part of that was probably because there was about a hundred pages left at that point. Which is good if your finding the first part slow because once you read the first half the second goes by really fast. Yes that’s suppose to be kind of a joke even if its a bit true. From what I remember about the movie since its been more then a year since I watched it last the book and the movie was pretty similar. Its really hard to talk about such a short book without giving away big events in the book. It definitely should be a book that everyone reads because I think that no matter how old someone is they will enjoy it.

Stay tuned everyone for the review of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets to be up soon!
