Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Readthrough

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.
