Harry Potter and the sorcer's stone- My thoughts

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I must be the last person on the face of this planet to have discovered the magic of Harry potter books.It all started a few months back when a pesky teen asked me if i liked Potter books .Having half-halfheartedly read a few pages almost a decade ago and seen the odd movie,I told her that i didn't. The kid's jaw dropped and she stared at me incredulously. "Dude,how boring.What kind of a person doesn't like Harry Potter?" She demanded, her nose high up in the air. I remember indignantly telling her something about choices and how all the five fingers on a hand weren't the same.Lame,I know. The result of all this was that there was a new resolve in me to somehow read a HP book.I started almost half-halfheartedly again ,wanting to hate the book. But,I just couldn't. This time around, I guess I've managed to see what millions of people like the kid that rebuked me see in the book. The book has managed to make me want to go to a school like Hogwarts so badly that I've been dreaming up my own versions of Harry's adventure. Oh,no..I am not joking here.

What a wonderful,fertile imagination JK Rowling must have to even have conceived such an adventure. And she doesn't compromise on development of any character by giving importance just to Harry. LOVE IT and am neck deep into the second part.. Highly recommended for Muggles like me who don't normally include Fantasy in their reading diet.

  1. I am right beside you in this.. I haven't read any of HP Books..Hopefully will read them someday..

  2. Ha, Ha, I discovered Harry Potter as my children were young when they came out, otherwise I doubt I would have read them. I have only just discovered where you have moved your book reviews to Bhargavi, so I will follow you here in future instead of Bedazzled, if that is OK.

  3. Jyoti.. REad them soon!!! Its worth it !!

    Lindy.. Sure, no problem.How lucky that you discovered HP early on.. Now I wonder why i didnt persevere.. Thanks for following me here!

  4. HP - *sigh* - i still wonder if there really isn't a magical world, privy only to JKR.

  5. TV.. I wonder about that too! How could she have conceived something like this when on the dole!?!
