Harry Potter & The Philosophers Stone by J.K.Rowling

Just before I start I would like to say that although I haven’t reviewed this book (well, not in depth anyway), I absolutely love this series, I have read all the books, seen the films, including the extras, and I just generally love everything about it. Enjoy!

Strange things happen around Harry Potter. Whenever he is upset or angry, the person that had made him always ends up worse off. He hasn’t exactly had a normal start to life, because when he was only 1 his parents died in a car crash. He  was sent to live with his nosy, thin, long necked aunt, pig of a cousin and horrible fat uncle, who regularly threatens to lock him in the cupboard under the stairs (which he lives in) with no meals for a week.  Harry’s life has been terrible up until his 11th birthday, when a ginormous man smashes the front door down, gives his cousin a pig’s tail and gave him a mysterious letter telling him of a strange school… Join Harry as he learns magic, fights a troll and fights a possessed man… Because thats something that happens every day... This is a masterpiece of work and no wonder it has won so many awards. J.K. Rowling is a truly inspiring writer, and do you know what? When Rowling finished writing this book, her agent told her that the book would probably amount to nothing because it was too long and complex for boys to read (how wrong he was!) and the publisher was nearly right because the book was turned down several times before finally being accepted, but still being told the public wouldn't like it! It just goes to show that you should never give up hope, because if Rowling had, we probably wouldn't have the this amazing series that we have all grown to know and love.
