Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is the first in the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. It was published in 1997 by Scholastic here in the US.
I wanted to read through Harry because, in some form, it’s similar to what I want to be writing: young man who ends up in a large adventure. Although, mine doesn’t have a separate magical world.
I’m not sure what else to say. I enjoy the story, and think that (as a first book) it’s well written. The story itself is engaging, and keeps moving. These days, that is important to a story. Modern novels keep the suspense going, the action is moving at a fairly consistent pace.
Beware, there will probably be spoilers. So if you haven’t read it, you might not want to read my Readthrough.
I will be abbreviating the title in the future. Look for the tag HPatSS. Or look under the Harry Potter category.
