Author: J. K. Rowling
When a letter arrives for unhappy but ordinary Harry Potter, a decade-old secret is revealed to him that apparently he’s the last to know. His parents were wizards, killed by a Dark Lord’s curse when Harry was just a baby, and which he somehow survived. Leaving his unsympathetic aunt and uncle for Hogwarts, a wizarding school brimming with ghosts and enchantments, Harry stumbles upon a sinister adventure when he finds a three-headed dog guarding a room on the third floor. Then he hears of a missing stone with astonishing powers which could be valuable, dangerous, or both
I have read this book countless times now, and each time it has been as much of an interesting read as the first time. This review can be slightly biased as owe a lot to this series.
J. K. Rowling’s writing is just phenomenal, the way she breathes life into her characters, her witty dialogues, the way her writing create a scene so vivid in your mind that you forget you are reading. She makes up her world in your mind, and you just need to curl up inside and wish you never had to come out of it, ever.
I had borrowed this copy every time from a library, and by the time I had started earning, the first editions had stopped being in print. All of my other Harry Potter books were in first print, and it somehow did not make sense to get first two books of other edition. Then I came across secondhandbooksindia.com and got myself the first two first edition books!
I reread it, and it was phenomenal!
These books are like my comfort books, where I know that no matter what happens, Harry Potter would ALWAYS be there.
