My heart went out to little Harry Potter and how his aunt and uncle treated him. Could not put the book down once I started. As the story continued I found it to be very intriguing and it held my interest; wanted to keep going to find out what was going to happen next. Finished the first book in a few days and can't wait to start the second book.

When my brother first brought home HP and the Sorcerer's Stone, I thought it was another boring book. But when I got my hands on it, I was begging him, "Just one more chapter! Just one more chapter!!" So when the chance came up to buy the whole series that was out so far, we bought all three for ourselves, as well as Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire a while later. I love them all!!!

These books are a perfect introduction to SciFi/Fantasy for a young reader. Though they might not be considered 'literature', they do teach a young reader how to visualize, to explore a theme, and how to sort out plot lines, something alot of children's literature doesn't even come close to.
It's not fine literature, true, but it does lay excellent framework, so when a reader wants to move on to, say, The Wheel Of Time, they know how to read it without geting lost, or bored.

JK Rowling's book, Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone, has thousands of children turning off the television, and having their noses deep in a--wow--book!
Many Children can relate to poor Harry's situation, and love to hear the "zero to hero" storyline. But no one has ever quite captivated audiences with a book like this before. Full of adventure, suspense, magic--you just can't put it down.
