Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s StoneAugust 16, 2006
Although I fell asleep while watching the movie (don't remember if it was caused by the quality of the movie or the quality of my sleep the day before). I always intended reading at least the first book in the series, I just had to know what the fuss is about.
So last week I picked up Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling. Although I expected to hate it I finished reading it in a couple of days and enjoyed every minute of it. Although the first couple of chapters are a bit slow, the book overall is excellent. It is off course a children's book so it's a bit simple at times but the world and the characters Rowling creates are sparkling, fresh and funny. Definitely a book I would recommend everyone, young and old.
Having enjoyed the book so much I decided to buy Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (the second book) and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (the third) as well. Just to make sure I don't run out of unread books. I already started reading book two a couple of days a go and so far it's even better as the first.
