Harry Potter has no idea how famous he is. That's because he's being raised by his miserable aunt and uncle who are terrified Harry will learn that he's really a wizard, just as his parents were. But everything changes when Harry is summoned to attend an infamous school for wizards, and he begins to discover some clues about his illustrious birthright. From the surprising way he is greeted by a lovable giant, to the unique curriculum and colorful faculty at his unusual school, Harry finds himself drawn deep inside a mystical world he never knew existed and closer to his own noble destiny.

      *WARNING: THIS BOOK REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS.* Young, and brave Harry Potter never knew he was famous in the wizardry world. He was stuck with his aunt, uncle, and porky cousin, Dudley Dursley. In the Dursleys' house, you are forbidden to talk about anything that is beyond ordinary. It was until Hagrid kept sending them letters for Harry. No matter where they moved, Hagrid found them. This part really made me read on, because I wanted to know who sent the letters, which weren't signed (it was sent by Hagrid). Hagrid finally met them at a location Uncle Vernon would never think he'd know. He told Harry that he was accepted into Hogwarts, which made Uncle Vernon and Hagrid argue. Uncle Vernon said he was suppose to be ordinary. To me, arguing in this book is exciting :) He made the mistake of telling Hagrid he had told Harry nothing about wizards and witches. Hagrid finally got mad at him when he insulted Professor Dumbledore, so he used his umbrella and accidentally turned some of Dudley into a pig (he was aiming at Uncle Vernon). This part will really make you laugh! Hagrid gets Harry his new stuff for Hogwarts, and for his birthday, an owl named Hedwig. Harry has a lightning shaped scar on his forehead, which he'd always wanted to know how he'd gotten. He finds out that Lord Voldemort had tried to kill him, that's how his parents and siblings died. When Voldemort tried to kill Harry, he failed and lost all his powers. That's how Harry is famous. But even though he lost his powers, there are rumors that he may still be alive.. somewhere.. with some power... Read to find out if Lord Voldemort is alive and after Harry!

        Well, eggcritic, you are so wrong. It deserves the attention.Do you know where JK Rowling started UP. She is an inspirational 0 to hero. I Think EVERY book deserves a chance.In my opinion, nothing is 'bad', it's just not your taste.

          Harry Potter is one of the most over-blown, over-exaggerated and over-hyped stories I've ever read. The plot is great, the characters are likeable, and the world is marvelous; But does it deserve all this hype? Harry Potter is not the best book, because if it were, I would've read it long ago.
