I read this book over a year ago after the insistence of friends. I usually do not like fiction, especially science fiction and fantasy. With that said, the book was interesting and sometimes even exciting. I'll defer to the thousands of positive comments from other readers...I need to read a realistic book now...maybe a biography.

Finally, I set out to discover the universe of Harry Potter.

This is not a spectacular book. It is a children's book through and through. The fantasy wizard-school setting mirrors real-life school, which makes it popular for children. "Why dont *we* learn magic in school, mommy?" My magical wand was a #2 lead core particle board pink-tipped pencil. I used it to fill in bubbles.

I was entertained, if only for a few minutes, by the magical puzzles and broomstick games. Maybe the movies distilled the story for me. They depict nearly everything from the book.

I got this at the bookcrossing meet up tonight. I haven't read any of the Harry Potter so I am looking forward ot it.

Journal Entry 6 by cornelia from Houston, Texas USA on Friday, July 11, 2003
It's a lot like the movie. Theres a little more to it most of it's coverd in the movie. But it's a nice read. It is written more for a 10 - 13 year old group I think but it's cool. I liked it. I love fantasy like this, like The Worst Witch and stuff like that.
I'm sending it to a fellow bookcrosser in Germany who wants to read Harry Potter, they want to see what the hype's about. I think they will like it.

Journal Entry 7 by Leukonoe from Berlin (irgendwo/somewhere), Berlin Germany on Tuesday, August 26, 2003
Found the book together with two others on my desk today - finally they arrived. Thanks a lot to Cornelia! I really wonder how long it is going to last until my package arrives... and how I like Harry Potter. Will start reading tonight.

This is a great book for children, thrilling but not horrible which appeals to the archetypic heritage in our minds. I especially liked the little details like All Flavour Beans and such stuff. However, I cannot understand why there's that hype among *grown-up people* about Rowling's books...

I am now going to find a good release occasion to make sure this book gets journalled again after all its long journey across the atlantic.
