This was the first time that I’ve read and completed this book, although I’ve tried to read it before. I gave Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone 3 stars out of 5 because whilst the story was good, it took me a while to get into the book and its story, but once I got past that stage I enjoyed the book.
The book’s story was constructed very well in the sense that the storyline is more like a puzzle, giving you clues as you read but without you knowing it until you’ve been given the puzzle.
For example; meeting Professor Quirrell in the Leaky Cauldron, knocking Professor Quirrell over when Hermione set fire to Professor Snape’s robes at Harry’s first Quidditch game, etc.
The characters were well-developed and most of them were easy to love, with the exception of the few we aren’t supposed to like.
The first book spent a lot of time setting up the story for the rest of the series, so overall I would suggest this to people who want to read the entire series, or people who don’t mind long introductions.
