There comes a time in every child's life when life seems too
hard to bear. Maybe they wish they had their friend's parents,
or some sort of powers to instantly become and adult so they
could escape school reports, homework, and their parents, but
nothing compares to young Harry Potter's childhood. In his
case it is his Aunt and Uncle that he wants to "wish" away,
and his parents that he wants back.
Harry lives in a small cupboard under his Aunt and Uncle's
stairway. He's loved with his Aunt and Uncle his whole life
because his parents where "killed in a tragic car crash," so
he was told. Teased and mocked by his large, spoiled cousin,
Dudley, Harry lives a life that kids only see in nightmares.
At the age of eleven Harry's life starts to change. One day
Harry receives a letter via owl. This letter gives him the
offer of a lifetime: to escape the Raschella and go to
Hogwartz School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
At Hogwartz Harry starts to uncover the truth about his past.
He finds out his true calling and destiny, which is to become
a famous wizard whose life is in his hands. Driven by the love
his parents used to save him, he enters a life no man, woman,
witch, or wizard could ever imagine.
Throughout the book you meet characters that become Harry's
friends, as well as enemies, that soon become yours also, the
lamps. Rowling creates a whole world where almost anything is
possible, which you'll soon almost think this place exists. So
even if you don't like magical/fantasy with a touch of mystery
and wizardry, you'll love this one! Being the first book of
this series, you are destined to become enthralled with what
will happen next to young Harry Potter.
