HP1- The Sorcerer’s Stone

Okay, I’ll admit it – I enjoy the Harry Potter books/movies/such. But I’ll also admit that I 1.) Believe that, after ‘The Goblet of Fire’, the movies all go to rubbish. 2.) I can only say that I am certain that the 5th and 6th movies go to rubbish, as I have not seen either part 1 or 2 of ‘The Deathly Hallows’ movies. But I do know for a fact that I enjoyed reading and watching the first in the series of 7 ‘Harry Potters’. So I’ve decided that, since I haven’t read them since sixth grade, I should refresh my memory with the books.
 
In ‘The Sorcerer’s Stone’, young Harry Potter is treated very poorly by his only remaining family, the Dursleys. But at 12:00 a. m. on his eleventh birthday, he is told he is a wizard. Big bomb to be dropped when you’ve been raised by Muggles and told your parents were killed in a car crash when in truth they were killed by the most horrible Dark wizard of the century, Lord Voldemort.
 
When Harry gets to his school, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he makes some friends, enemies, and meets Voldemort face-to-face.
 
I will not say that I don’t like this book, because I love it. I just think the 3rd book and movie, ‘The Prisoner of Azkaban’, is the best. Can’t wait to talk about that one. But I will wait, rather impatiently, to post about that until I have chatted ’bout ‘The Chamber of Secrets’, another of my favorites. And I do apologize for not posting as regularly as I did during the school year. I don’t have a life, but this summer I didn’t even have enough of a life to post here. Sorry about that. But school starts tomorrow, and I will officially be in high school. 🙂
