My Review | Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve watched all the movies so I decided to read one of the books. I liked it. This is the first in the Harry Potter series. The book gives you some details left out of the movie, like Rubeus Hagrid is nearly 12 feet tall. J.K. Rowling spent five years writing the book and a year looking for a publisher and found one, in part, because the eight-year-old daughter of the cheif executive like it. She was given an advance of 2,500 pounds. The initial print-run was just 500 copies with 300 given to libraries. The book has been published in 67 languages.
