After putting this off for so many years despite all the fuss about it, I am happy to say I enjoyed this book, but I am not sure what all the fuss is about (don’t shoot me!)! The character development and setting are done well. It is a simple read and it’s a good story, I just am not sure why people rave so much!! I will try to get to the next book at some point.
There was one bit in particular that irked me - I felt it was a bit unrealistic (aside from the wizards and magic!), but I will perhaps write about that in my full review as that would be a spoiler.
Full review will be up on my blog asap.

Unless he has a wisdom or some kind of psychic ability, it seems so far fetched he would ask a student such a specific question when students shouldn't know about the stone."
