Harry Potter 1.4 A Thousand Slytherin Calculators

In the final part of our read-through of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, we continue to be blown away by the quality of what we’ve got to read. And it’s not just the writing - it’s the sheer chutzpah of McGonagall, kneecapping her own house in the cup competition. It’s the sheer insanity of Hogwarts’ detention policy, which somehow involves centaurs who can somehow click their hooves. And it’s the sheer, towering, sage, brilliant, father-figure punk trolling of Dumbledore, who will invest in decorations just to crush the dreams of a full quarter of the students in his care. What more could you ask for?
Well for a start you could ask for REVIEWS drawn from around the internet, and from our very own Sharklettes, on this light-footed masterpiece, which is good because WE’VE GOT ‘EM.  
AND you could ask for the next book! We’ve enjoyed this so much that we’re rolling onwards, clicking our hooves, into Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, starting next week! More Hogwarts! More Potter! MORE SHARK!
