J. K. Rowling – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone


This is the first book in J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, and whilst it is pretty good, it’s also one of the weakest. It’s more obviously a children’s book than other books in the series, but it does establish the story and set the tone in a way that few openers ever manage.

I won’t go into the plot, because I don’t want to ruin it and I feel like most people already know it, but basically we get to watch Harry grow up into a young wizard and get spirited away to Hogwarts. Rowling’s approach to magic is magical in itself, and if you start at the beginning and stick with the series, like I recommend, then this is the book that will introduce you to it, slowly but surely and at a pace that it’s easy for you to keep up with.

This is just the sort of book that everyone should read at one point or another, a true modern day classic. So if you haven’t read it yet then what are you waiting for? Get out there, grab yourself a copy, read it and come back and leave me a comment.
