After seeing this book on the bestseller's list for months and
encountering it ostentatiously displayed in every bookstore I
entered, I decided to take the plunge. I purchased Harry and
the Sorcerer's Stone to see what all the fuss was about. I'll
admit I was sceptical at first. One day later, after reading
it cover to cover without pause, I am addicted. This book is a
definite page turner. I couldn't put it down! I just had to
find out the results of the Quidditch match, and discover what
was hidden under the heavily guarded trap-door. This book,
written in the Roald Dahl style (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate
Factory, James and the Giant Peach), will entrance you and
will fill you with such an obsession that you simply can't get
the sequels fast enough to find out what adventures await
Harry during his next term at Hogwarts. George Kovacs table
lamps, What are you waiting for? Get this book today, and
discover a world that you never dreamed possible-and from
which you will never want to return. As for me, I'll be
searching for Platform Nine and Three Quarters at the King's
This book was a great thrill,yet a little wierd and drawn out.
I believe the most exciting part was close to the end were the
Quidditch game was really getting started. I thought the way
she was so descriptive was a little of a waste. She could have
been a little less descriptive and still have a great book.
If you start reading Harry
Potter, you never want to stop. You say to yourself after this
fun part I'll stop, but by the time you've gotten there there
is already another good part in affect.
I strongly recommand this
book to students of all ages by George Kovacs lamps.
Especially ones who enjoy long, fiction books. Also I
recommend this to teacher of all grade levels. It is a good
way to get your students interrested in reading ,and if you
think you might be a bore to them, try the cassette instead.
