Magical. Remarkable. Timeless. If you are into intriguing and fast paced novel, you can't probably go wrong with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. It is first of the seven famous Harry Potter books by a British author Joanne Rowling or also known with her pen name as J. K Rowling, that has 309 pages, and, was released in 1998. Most importantly, it is where Harry Potter, the main character, was introduced to the wizarding world from the viewpoint of the Dursleys, and, commenced his sublime and fun-filled adventure in Hogwarts along with his camaraderie with Ronn and Hermione.

Harry Potter, at eleven, began his life anew when he discovers that he is a wizard and is invited to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, after being raised in the miserably unfair home of his Uncle Vernon Dursley. Harry's parents were murdered by the main antagonist in the novel, Lord Voldemort, when he was an infant, which leaves a lightning bolt scar on his forehead. He then learns that a powerful wizard and his minions are after the sorcerer’s stone that will make this evil wizard immortal and undefeatable. While, the rest is Potter's introduction to the magical world.

Whilst I definitely recommend this book to the reader, I would've also loved to recommend it to them who have not totally understood the movie series, as well as to some kids and teenagers. Them who have not totally understood the movie, since the informations in the book are very detailed and the words are just easy to understand. Moreover, to the kids and teenagers because it is full of fantasies and imagination, values the importance of friendship, and, sparks joy.

This book is full of fantasies and imagination like at one point in the book, when Harry Potter is asked to catch a flying golden ball while flying on his broomstick. Harry Potter stands on his broomstick and tries to reach for the ball, but he falls off the broomstick in a very tense moment.

The book also gives highlight and value to friendship. In one part of the book, Harry decides to go after the sorcerer’s stone before the wizard reaches it, but his loyal friends, Hermione and Ron don’t let Harry face this danger alone.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is a good book to spark joy, especially those can very well relate to the fantasy world. In one part of the book where Harry, Ronn, and, Hermione sat with each other in a train towards Hogwarts, I really felt that there was a joy sparking inside my system. The moment also that they are together, the book carves a smile on my face.

Furthermore, the book is well-written in a sense that, the descriptions of location, items, and, characters are all clear and appropriate. For example, the school structure, Hogwarts' make the controlling of story's pace hand. On the other hand, there are some minor failure in this book, and, one of it is some of the details were not included. For example, the author did not give highlight to Harry Potter's experience in muggle world. Overall, the book is well-written, and, is successful at providing the readers the best they deserve.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone finishes off a very superb start that anyone who reads it, will dare to finish reading the other 6 books. Truly, the book, up until this day, is magical, remarkable and timeless. No wonder why the book itself, as well as the author, J. K Rowling, deserves all the attentions and praises they have received for more than 2 decades. Hence, they deserve to be called as “legends“.
