Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone
By J.K. Rowling
I think that to give a summary of this book is an insult. I mean lets face it, everyone knows who Harry Potter is. Even the book says so; “- every child in our world will know his name.”- from Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone. You see.
But if by some reason you don’t know who Harry Potter is, well, here is the first page… but seriously you need to read it. What’s wrong whit you?
You see how awesome and magical it is? this is definitely one of my favorite books/ series. Harry Potter became my hiding place when I was going trough some tough times. As I’m sure happened to many people. because this is that kind of book. The type you can easily sink in or hide and just live there for a while. Like I said before I read this book a few years ago. Yes I was late to the fandom. Shame on me, I know. But anyways the reason I have brought it up is because I don’t re-read to many books. And although I love them I don’t remember re-reading them, ever. When I go back to a book is mostly because is an audiobook, a short story, tradition, The Bible or because I’m just browsing through it, just reading my favorite parts or stuff like that. But this time I went back because I needed comfort. My dad was sick and he was staying at the hospital.
I’m a huge daddy’s girl (I’m not ashamed to admit it. lol) and my dad is one of those people who almost never gets sick and has never even spent one night in the hospital. But last weekend he did and just came out today. Thank God! He had heart troubles. Anyways I’m not the type of person that talks about things or seeks comfort in other people. If I’m feeling like drowning I run and hide inside a book. That’s how I deal whit things. So this week I ran back to an old friend and I have to say it was as comforting as the first time I read them. J.K. Rowling’s writing is just amazing. She literally transports you to a whole new world (like Aladdin lol)
I know that as strange as this may seem, there are some people who have not read or even watch the movies of Harry Potter. (I know it blows my mind.) So I encourage you to read them. it doesn’t matter how old you are or even if you are going trough something or not. You just need to read them. I could spent my time writing how awesome they are but I don’t think I would make them justice. Just go and read them. Like NOW. lol Seriously, NOW.
