Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry’s eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The magic starts here!
So at age 21 I’ve finally bitten the bullet and read a Harry Potter book! I’ve always been afraid to read them in case they’re overhyped but they definitely are not! I really enjoyed it. I read it super fast as well, I thought it was a great page turner and very easy to read. I’m always cautious of starting new series’- it feels like a commitment! But with this, I’m delighted I started and I’ve got the next 3 books on the way!
