Early this year I gave myself a wish list of sorts and reading Harry Potter was one of them.  I’ve put off reading Harry Potter for the past 10 years even when continually told that I should read it by people close to me.  I don’t even think I’ve ever sat to watch a complete Harry Potter movie either. 

[First Five] of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone :

  • Quite similar to the movie so far
  • The descriptive details are much more interesting in the book
  • I like Hagrid
  • It is a smidge childish but I’ve been told it gets darker as I progress with the series.
  • I do enjoy the magical wizardry and the overall oddness  

In all likelihood, I won’t write a formal review of these books.. They’ve been blogged about countless times already.  It just seems like the whole Harry Potter thing is so commercialised. I am however hoping to get to know Harry differently after I’ve read the books.  I can feel I’m going in a little hesitant and I can’t quite put my finger on it as to why.
