Harry Potter has never been the star of a Quidditch team, scoring points while riding a broom far above the ground. He knows no spells, has never helped to hatch a dragon, and has never worn a cloak of invisibility.
All he knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley--a great big swollen spoiled bully. Harry's room is a tiny closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn't had a birthday party in eleven years.
But all of that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to an incredible place that Harry--and anyone who reads about him--will find unforgettable.
For it's there that he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic in everything from classes to meals, but a great destiny that's been waiting for him...if Harry can survive the encounter
The view of a book addict:
It’s not the first time I’ve read this book and not even the second but I still love the Harry Potter series. I’ve read the books in dutch before and now I’m reading the books in English for the first time, it feels like reading a whole new book.
I don’t have to tell you that I loved this story of course because otherwise I wouldn’t have been reading it for so many times. I feel this is a wonderful first book in a great series. I love the characters, even the bad ones.
The verdict of a book addict:
Reading this book makes me realise again why I love reading so much. To escape the world and be taken away into a world full of magic. I can’t wait to read the next book again.
