The sorting is really awesome. You get asked a different series of questions that help the hat choose where you should be. I was sorted into Slytherin, which is a huge surprise to me. I always believed that I was a Ravenclaw or a Gryffindor. You get a welcome letter that explains your house. Mine actually helped me like my house.
Getting your wand is an awesome experience. Once again, you're asked a series of questions, then you are given a wand. My wand is Pine with Dragon core thirteen inches. You can use spells in the duel feature and it is really hard. Potions is also very tricky and I totally understand why Harry sucked now.
The bonus feature materials of Pottermore are amazing. McGonagall's backstory almost made me cry.
I know that most of you will have to wait till October, but it is definitely worth the wait. If you are already on Pottermore, my username is unicornwild83 and you should add me.
