Hagrid explains Harry's history to him: When he was a baby, the Dark wizard, Lord Voldemort, attacked and killed his parents in an attempt to kill Harry; but the only mark on Harry was a mysterious lightning-bolt scar on his forehead. Now he has been invited to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where the headmaster is the great wizard Albus Dumbledore. Harry visits Diagon Alley to get his school supplies, especially his very own wand. To get to school, he takes the Hogwarts Express from platform nine and three-quarters at King's Cross Station. On the train, he meets two fellow students who will become his closest friends: Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Harry is assigned to Gryffindor House at Hogwarts, and soon becomes the youngest-ever Seeker on the House Quidditch team. He also studies Potions with Professor Severus Snape, who displays a deep and abiding dislike for Harry, and Defense Against the Dark Arts with nervous Professor Quirrell; he and his friends defeat a mountain troll, help Hagrid raise a dragon, and explore the wonderful, fascinating world of Hogwarts. But all events lead irrevocably toward a second encounter with Lord Voldemort, who seeks an object of legend known as the Sorcerer's Stone…

5.0 (Audiobook) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
This is not so much a review, but more a reminder to myself to indulge in rereads of these audiobooks at least once every couple of years. I love Jim Dale's narration so much. It really enhances these already charming and delightful stories.

5.0 Second Time Around is Even Better!
Read this series 7 years ago. This time I'm listening on Audible. The whole fam loves this story, and it was really fun listening to the last couple hours of the first book while in the car yesterday. I thought my teenagers were busying themselves with something else in the back seat when my 13-y...
