Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

An excellent introduction to the "Harry Potter" series which sets the scene in a very interesting and enthralling manner. It explains everything from Harry's life to his acceptance at Hogwarts School and the subsequent events that follow during his adventures with his companions Ron and Hermoine. It is an excellent book which is extremely difficult to put down once you start reading it, and easily captivates the reader. I would recommend it to anyone.
