This book is so iconic, to the extent that almost everybody has heard the name "Harry Potter". For those who haven't read it before, I'll just say this: read it now. All the books which are considered to be classics need to keep the reader hooked onto the story. The Sorcerer's Stone does that, and a lot more. You will immediately be drawn towards the characters, the storyline, and will be left wanting for more. For example, I felt like I was on platform 9 3/4, getting ready to go to Hogwarts. Don't worry, there is a whole list of sequels which you can read after this. However, this is the original Harry Potter book, and could be the best of all of the books.
