Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter #1)(1995)

by J.K. Rowling

Raised in the mundane everyday world by an aunt and uncle who detest him, young Harry Potter's eyes are opened to a universe of magic when he learns that he is actually the child of famous wizards and the sole survivor of an attack by Voldemort, a being so evil that other magical folk hesitate even to use his name. 

Thus, JK Rowling begins an entertaining saga that became a publishing phenomenon.

Like so many others, I have also been enthralled by Harry and his world. 

I like the meticulous way that Rowling constructs a world that coexists with everyday reality, complete with its own sports, economy, and political organizations. 

She peoples it with colorful, memorable characters, all of it anchored by the tight friendship between Harry, Ron, and Hermione. 

I'm looking forward to seeing how Rowling develops her story over the next six books.
