Harry Potter is an ordinary boy who lives in a cupboard under the stairs at his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon's house, which he thinks is normal for someone like him who's parents have been killed in a 'car crash'. He is bullied by them and his fat, spoilt cousin Dudley, and lives a very unremarkable life with only the odd hiccup (like his hair growing back overnight!) to cause him much to think about. That is until an owl turns up with a letter addressed to Harry and all hell breaks loose! He is literally rescued by a world where nothing is as it seems and magic lessons are the order of the day. Read and find out how Harry discovers his true heritage at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, the reason behind his parents mysterious death, who is out to kill him, and how he uncovers the most amazing secret of all time, the fabled Philosopher's Stone! All this and muggles too. Now, what are they?

4.0 Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone
The review below was based on my first read of the Harry Potter books, ages ago and in Dutch. Updated reviews will follow after a reread (in English) I plan to do. I took me years to start reading Harry Potter. I think the main reason was my parents didn't like fantasy, and I used to think this wo...

5.0 Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
This was such a treat! This is my third time reading the book, and this time around I chose to listen to the audiobook. I've heard the Jim Dale version--so actually this probably be my fourth time round. I managed to track down the UK audiobook version and Stephen Fry was an absolute delight to l...

5.0 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
This took me longer than expected this time around! Not too surprising considering this is by far my most read Potter-book, so it's sort of lost the hook for me. Very enjoyable still.
