J. K. Rowling is, without a doubt, the most famous of contemporary authors, and this is directly due to her imaginative vision of Hogwarts, and the wizarding world that has captivated audiences of all ages. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, as does the six sequels, focuses on its titular narrator, Harry Potter, known as ‘The Boy Who Lived’. Harry is a seemingly normal kid, right on the cusp of turning 11, orphaned, bullied by classmates, and treated in a malicious manner by his aunt and uncle. However on his 11th birthday, Harry is invited to Hogwarts, a wizarding school, previously attended by his parents. Harry begins to not only learn magic, but also learns more about his famous bout with the Dark Lord Voldemort as a baby, and how he was responsible for Voldemort’s (apparent) demise. Harry deals with this radical new adjustment alongside two newfound friends, Ron Weasley and Hermonie Granger, and together they face the challenges of a magical world together. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is the starting point for anyone looking for an introduction to the world of Harry Potter, and Rowling’s talented writing will assuredly not disappoint.
