Harry Potter has never played a sport while flying on a broomstick. He's never worn a cloak of invisibility, befriended a giant, or helped hatch a dragon. All Harry knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley. 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 that is about change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to a wonderful place he never dreamed existed. There he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic around every corner, but a great destiny that's been waiting for him...if Harry can survive the encounter (Goodreads)
If you have not read this book, you might not want to read my review. It contains some spoiler. But hey, seriously, how come you have not read Harry Potter?
Re-reading a book is something that I rarely do but when I do, I just want to check my favorite lines. Besides, with those piles of book in my shelves, there is not much time left. Another reason is re-reading one particular book just changes my previous opinions. Sometimes there is book that gets out of my favorite shelf just because it is not as great as it used to be. Surprisingly, it does not happen to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I found that each chapter was still amazing. They made me feel I have never read it. The story line becomes clearer even into details. But then, some part of me said I should not be that excited. Although I have read the book for the third times and watched the movie for thousand times, there’s still a chance that I might have forgot how the story run with its details. In the middle I admitted it, especially when they mentioned Nicholas Flamel. It totally slipped my mind. But still I just can’t help it. All moment that I spent with this book was really great.
