If you could change one thing in book 1 what would it be?
This is a tough choice. If the first one wasn't fantastic, the hordes of rabid fans would never have continued reading through the series.
Every little bit of the first one was an introduction to these fascinating characters and the world in which Harry is thrust into.
My least favorite part of the book is Quirrell. The focus is off him during the story and Snape is spotlighted as the bad guy. Obviously he had an incredible mind or else he wouldn't have been the only one to find Voldemort. I feel that the 'good' side who didn't believe Voldemort was gone would have been searching as well to end him for good. What happens though is that by the time we do find out what was happening with Quirrell, it's hard to believe he would be good at being bad. This stuttering fool found Voldemort and helped hatch this plan to get the Sorcerer's stone? It seems far-fetched. Believe me I love that as readers we have no clue who the bad guy is, but I do wish that we would've gotten some insight into his intelligence and despicable nature other than the conversation with him at the end. That way we wouldn't have thought he was the bad guy, but at least better believed him capable of it.
What would you change?
