Review: I remember being gifted the first two Harry Potter books not too long after the second one was published. I presume that I had them read to me, or that I read them along with my parents. I can’t remember much of my impressions of the first book, but I remember enjoying the tasks toward the end more than the rest of it. It’s been a long time since I re-read it, but I imagine I’d still like it today, for nostalgic reasons if nothing else.
