5.0 out of 5 stars I can't remember enjoying any book more
I laughed at my adult son when I found him reading Harry Potter. He said "don't knock it until you've tried it" and gave me the Philosopher's Stone for Christmas. I am now addicted and have bought and read them all.I am an avid reader of all types of literature but these are something else!

3.0 out of 5 stars The films are better and too much description!!!
kinda boring. The book has too much information and spoils it. other than that, pretty good. I think the films are better definitely this one!!!

The book was very exciting with lots of good ideas and I thought that the end was especially exciting and a bit frightening.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read, but don't expect too much., 20 Mar 2001
By A Customer
The Harry Potter books are fun, a good, involving read. However, the background of Rowling's universe isn't completely thought out. If you are used to, say, Roger Zelazny's Princes in Amber or Lois McMaster Bujold (NO, she doesn't write "magic", but she has a beautifully full, coherent universe), you will find Rowland a little lacking. Rowling is a "beach read"--fun, undemanding, but don't expect a fully-realised "world".
