Thoughts: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
By: J.K. Rowling

As you know, I have been reading Harry Potter. I even joined a challenge for this year. Well I have fallen in love with them! The magic, and world, the characters, really there is nothing not to love in these novels.

However, I have to admit, I didn't enjoy reading the first book for the first 50 pages or so. I'm just so use to reading novels with endless descriptions, and mostly in first point of view. I do like 3rd person, but it was a simpler writing then I was use to. Yet, once I got use to the flow of the novel I just couldn't put it down.

I also watched the move when I finished the novel. I loved how true to the book they were. Now I have seen the movies before but it's different watching it after you read the book. You have more of the background story and it's not as confusing.

It was also nice to read the novel after seeing the movie since I had a picture and a voice for each character. I also loved how the acting stayed true to the characters. Besides Dumbledore, I loved his funny and random comments, I didn't find that as much in the movie. Other then that I love the book and movie! Can't wait to read more (I'm on #3). My thoughts of #2 will be up soon!


  1. Oh you're in for such a treat! HP took a couple of us a little while to get into too (Steph loved it from the start :P) but it's so worth it. So so so so SO so worth it! (And the movies are fun, but the books are so much richer and just... magical.)
