Thought of by many as the book (series) that made reading cool again Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is a masterpiece. Author JK Rowling creates a world so vivid it seems it must exist somewhere outside of our imaginations. Harry's journey from a little baby who miraculously cheats certain death to a boy who learns who he really is, a wizard(!), is a classic hero's journey made fresh for a new generation of readers. A mix of delights, Diagon Alley and Gringotts, and frights, The Forbidden Forest and Lord Voldermort, await readers. Even if the type of journey Harry is one isn't new, the fascinating details of the world in which he inhabits are more than enough to make up for that fact. The controversy surrounding the Harry Potter books has only served to boost its popularity and causes those who love them to throw even more spirit into their reading and celebration.
