What a way to start off the new year!! I LOVED this book! There was so much hoopla (is that even a word?) surrounding these books that I was hesitant to give them a try. Plus I don't usually read fantasty type books...hmmm...maybe it would be more truthfull to say that I tend to shy away from this genre and I'm not sure why. It looks like I need to try more books out like this. Anyways-back to Harry Potter.
I loved the way Rowling described Hogwarts and everything in the book for that matter. I could picture it in my mind and I fell in love with the world that she created. The entire book was memorable and I will be coming back for more. My favorite part of the book was reading about quidditch-what fun! I definitely recommend this book-if you haven't read this series then give it a try. Someday, when my son is older, I will read this book again with him I hope..but for now I think I'll move on to the second book.
