A Good Start

This is a fantastic beginning to an almost impossibly great series. These are the best books ever! Sorcerer's Stone is an easy classic. It's fun, and has a light atmosphere*. It's a great introductory to such a phenomenon. Well done, Mrs. Rowling, this is truly a masterpiece. *To Parents: As the series moves on, the books become progressively darker, mostly on behalf of Lord Voldemort. While this book is great for seven and up, the latest book so far is better for eleven or older.

It was GREAT!!!!!!

I thought it was a very good book because it was full of action and It was very exciting. I think people my age should read this if you like sorcery (and if your mom and dad let you). Thier is some scary parts and some fighting parts but all together it is very good.

Harry Potter is like a drug in the book area.

Harry potter is probably the most popular kids series of books in the world. And I must tell parents that kids will enjoy reading these books just as much as they will playing video games and watching TV. Its amazing. But be warned however, Harry Potter books are like drugs. Kids can get addicted to them. Reading the first book will get to the second, thrid, then all the way upt to the sixth and the seventh coming out sometime later. And they will actually read the books over and over again! I've read each of them at least two or three times. They're excellent. Nothing offensive here either. Its perfectly fine for kids, just maybe some scary stuff. The books get more mature however, as they go up in the series. But sill, the latest book, the sixth, could easily be read by a ten-year-old. They are wonderful books. Encourage your kids, and pretty soon, they'll be hooked. You may have to give them only a limited time of reading! (And another warning: kids may stay up very late reading under the covers with Harry Potter.)
