Book one of the Harry Potter series and our first introduction into his universe. His life is a daily misery, ensured by his grim relatives the Dursleys. Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon and their spoilt son Dudley.
The magic begins straight away and the story is immediately charming. The reading level is young teenage and you will find as you progress through the books that the reading age increases.
I enjoyed this book and so did my eldest son. I think he really got the magical theme and the horror at the end of this book is mostly psychological. There are some really clever ideas in here too as Harry must face some fiendish tests to win the day.
