Wow, I just typed up an entire review and this website deleted it. That sucked. Well anywho, I truly enjoyed this book. I had seen all the movies and my mom said I would enjoy the books. I actually really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed it so much I decided to read the sequel. I loved how the book included Harry's adventures and also about the history and background of the wizarding world. The ammount of effort and detail put in this book is surreal. It is so surreal infact it makes you wonder, how could this be fantasy? It is so detailed it has got to be real. Unfourtunatley we all have to face the cold harsh reality of the hardend world. Although, this book can help escape from all that for a time. So overall this book was very enjoyable and I do reccomend it to anybody.

I love this book. It is the first book in an amazing seven book series, and I recommend reading them all. One of the many, many reasons the books are so amazing is because the author wrote it as if she was one of Harry's friends, following him around and knowing how he feels. The book draws you in because you feel like you are reading about an eleven year old from an eleven year olds perspective. The author is skilled at portraying the characters authentically, which can give it depth that makes it real in a way that other books don't. I fully recomend reading all the books.

 I loved this book! This was the only Harry Potter book that I loved reading. Out of all seven books, this was my favorite. I recommend reading this one out of all the Harry Potter books, because it has the best detail, and it goes more indepth than the other six books. Out of all seven books this one caught my attention, because the author wrote it as if she was Harry's friend. When I read this book, I felt like I was actually in the book following Harry around. I recommend this book to any book fan.

I absolutely loved this book it was such a great start to a wonderful series! I had the opportunity of going to platform 9 3/4 in London and stand where they filmed the characters going through platforms 9 and 10. I felt like the book became more real and even cooler to experience where it all happened. This book is one of my favorites to read! I read it all the time, along with the rest of the series. This book made me experience a whole new world when I first read it in the third grade. This book is such a fabulous one to read and I would recomend it to everyone it is that good.
