really liked it
bookshelves: children-s-young-adults, fantasy, own-or-access
Read in November, 1999 , read count: many

This was the first Harry Potter book I read (yes, I was confused for the first few chapters) and my favourite for a long time. It was the last one she wrote before they became really popular, and as such it's the last one that is really a good book. I grabbed it from the shelf in my school library in a hurry, thinking 'these are supposed to be good' and never looked back.

It's a decent length, there are some genuinely funny moments, it's warm and compassionate and non-angsty, the characters and plot stay within the bounds of realism (in a fantastical way of course) and I always loved the bit with the time-turner. A true children's classic.
