This is the second time I have read this book and I really do love the series. I love how J.K. Rowling introduces all the characters, she gives them enough personality to get you hooked without going on and on about it. The book also gives you a quick glimpse into their magical world without getting to in depth, because let's face it, you have to save something to keep you interested for the next six books.

This was a great first adventure for them, and I found it very fitting for their age and magical abilities.
This book moves at a very fast pace, which makes it a quick enjoyable read.
