Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré

Another reread for my Hogwarts Challenge. A bit weird since I read #2 before this, but I've read the whole series more than once.

 

HPSS is a strong start to the series. I remember hearing that the first chapter was a bit weird and hard to get into, but after that the story flows. But after having read the entire series, the first chapter has so many little nods and mentions that pay off it's a joy to reread.

 

I do always forget how short the book is, particularly how long it takes to get to Hogwarts. It's a great book and start to a classic series.
