Personal Review: In my short opinion, I really enjoyed the book. Obviously all of the harry potter books are adored by many fans all over the world, and I can personally see why. Its a broad genre of fantasy or fiction that so many can enjoy. I believe that if you take just about anyone that likes fantasy books, they would like the Harry potter series. I mean it's a good story with a good tie of mystery and achievement. I would recommend this book to anyone that hasn't read it yet and likes fiction.
Quote: ""Go on, have a pasty," said Harry, who had never had anything to share before or, indeed, anyone to share it with. It was a nice feeling, sitting there with Ron, eating their way through all Harry's pasties, cakes, and candies." This Quote is an ideal example of friendship in the book. Harry literally doesn't have any friends until Hogwarts so it's good for him to have anything even close to one and Ron is a lot more than that. Ron helps him throughout the whole book and means a great deal to Harry.
