Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré After watching the first five Harry Potter movies with my boyfriend I wanted to re-read the series again.I have re-read The Philosopher's Stone last year in June and somehow just didn't read on with the series.Now I really wanted to read about Harry's first year at Hogwarts and about his adventure and I really, really enjoyed it.I haven't thought that I would enjoy it that much because I've seen the first movie just two weeks ago, but reading the book was just a different experience and there were quite a few scenes that just didn't show up in the movie, scenes that I forgot about, but was reminded of, when I read them.I loved how Harry's, Ron's and Hermione's friendship built up and how they had to study for exams and try to do magic. Quidditch was most enjoyable. I am so not into sports, but magic sports is a different and far more interesting thing, for me at least.It is also astonishing how events from Harry's first year are linked to the later books in the series. Just amazing.I am excited to continue with the series and relive all of this wonderful magic!
