it was amazing

Read from June 10 to 11, 2017 , read count: 2

I wanted something to read this weekend that I didn't have to think very hard about, so I decided to start re-reading the Harry Potter series, which I don't think I've revisited since book 7 came out. I would guess this was my fifth time reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, since I first started reading the series when there were four books available, and then each time a new one was published I re-read all of the previous titles before reading the new one.

The books in the Harry Potter series are written for a reader the same age as Harry; Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is about eleven-year-olds and has a reading level to match, so it's lightweight and silly. Harry and his friends get into a lot of awful predicaments, but problems are always solved quickly, either because of their own ingenuity or because an adult is keeping an eye on them. It's a fun, fast read, but there isn't a lot of depth. I think the series really picks up around books 3 or 4, so I'm looking forward to flying through the next couple of books and getting into the more complex storylines yet to come.
