Dang it.....

....I have to do another book review.(Turns out Blogger can upload an image faster than I can unwrap a Starburst)


Harry Potter is a wizard growing up with his non-magical (muggle) relatives. They are really mean! He doesn't want to live with them, but his parents were killed by an evil wizard called Lord Voldemort. Voldemort tried to kill Harry, too, but he couldn't. Voldemort was defeated, his powers were gone, and he was allmost killed, but (unfortunately) not quite.
So Harry had to go live with his Muggle Aunt and Uncle and cousin, who never told him that he was a wizard. But on his 11th birthday Harry receives a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and Hagrid (keeper of the grounds at Hogwarts, and the deliverer of Harry's letter) tells him that he was a wizard.
So Harry sets of for Hogwarts, meeting Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger on the way. Harry finds himself very unexpectedly famous for making Voldemort disappear, and so he attracts a lot of unwanted attention. Voldemort, however, is not a far gone as Harry thinks. He is back, and he is trying to steal the Sorcerer's Stone from Dumbledore. (the headmaster at Hogwarts)
But when Dumbledore is called away from the school, Voldemort is free to move in and try to capture the Stone, and only Harry Potter stands in his way.

I've this book 10 times now, so obviously I really like it. When I first started this series, I never expected to really like it, I just wanted to know what everyone was talking about. But I really, really did like it, and I still do. I like the mystery and suspense, and the humor, and the effect it has on my imagination, and all the detail, and everything. I persuaded Mom to read the series once, but she didn't like them all that much (she never likes good fantasy book though). I think I might have liked them better when I was 10, but they're still pretty darn good.
Ummm....... The End

  3. Actually, I like Harry Potter very much, unlike most of the fantasy/sci-fi stuff that you like.

SERIOUSLY, people? What is the point of blogging if nobody comments? If you can't think of anything to say about the post, THEN JUST SAY "HI"!

Have a nice day.
