Of course, the book that started it all. I think I just scanned this when I was like 10 years old. And finished reading it when I was 11. :)
My personal Adventure Tale. The book that sparked our imagination.
My Ridiculously Simplified Synopsis : Orphaned English boy goes from no life to being the most powerful wizard in the world.
Ten year old Harry Potter has never had a friend or birthday party thanks to his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon Dursley and their son Dudley, with whom he has lived since his parents deaths. Living with the Dursley’s is misery for Harry who has to watch his cousin Dudley being fawned over while he gets left out. All he has is a lightning shaped scar on his forehead, a lot of mystery about his parents, and a constant reminder not to ask questions. That all begins to change however when suddenly he starts receiving mysterious letters inviting him to attend Hogwarts, a school for young wizards where his parents had attended.
At Hogwarts Harry’s life suddenly begins to change. He discovers that he is a wizard as were his parents. He finds fame, good friends, and adventure there as well. But life isn’t going to be easy now for the Famous Harry Potter, as danger and mortal enemies also find their way into his life. And worse yet, he has to go back to the Dursley’s for the summer if he can survive!
This is a delightful story sure to thrill readers young and old. Written with far more care and consistency than most fantasy novels today. I give this book five full *fluffs*.
Okay, I’m not really spoiling all of you right now. :)
