The blog for books and movies

After 11 years of disregard and neglect at the hands of his aunt, uncle and their swinish son Dudley, Harry suddenly receives a visit from a giant named Hagrid, who informs Harry that his mother and father were a witch and a wizard, and that he is to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry himself. Most surprising of all, Harry is a legend in the witch world for having survived an attack by the evil sorcerer Voldemort, who killed his parents and left Harry with a lightning-shaped scar on his forehead. And so the fun begins, with Harry going off to boarding school like a typical English kid only his supplies include a message-carrying owl and a magic wand. There is enchantment, suspense and danger galore (as well as enough creepy creatures to satisfy the most bogeymen-loving readers, and even a magical game of soccerlike Quidditch to entertain sports fans) as Harry and his friends Ron and Hermione plumb the secrets of the forbidden third floor at Hogwarts to battle evil and unravel the mystery behind Harry’s scar.

Comments on: "Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – J.K. Rowling" (211)

  1. I mean how can you not love this book? This was maybe the fifth time i’ve read this book but it never ever gets old. Harry Potter thinks nothing of himself. He is bullied by his cousin Dudley, his small and skinny, and wears big glasses. His not special at all. Until one day a letter appears and he founds out he has been accepted to Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry. He is a wizard. The story follows harry and his life at Hogwarts where a mysterious plot, cranky teachers and thousands of spells and tricks await. I love this book the most because it is so imaginative and really takes you to Hogwarts like no book has ever done to me before. My favourite character is Hermoine because she is soo smart and is always there for her friends. I would recommend this book to boys and girls 8+ and rate it a 9.5/10 .

  2. This book is the first of the Harry Potter series written by JK Rowling. Harry Potter is an 11 year old boy, living with his aunt, uncle and cousin after his parents death when he was a baby. Harry finds out that his parents were actually wizards and he gets to go to a school called Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He meets Ron and Hermione and they quickly become good friends. Harry learns about the evil wizard, Voldemort, who was the one who killed his parents and has to encounter many fun adventures on his quest to save the Philosophers Stone.
    JK Rowling has created a book filled with danger, magic and friendship. I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to those who enjoy adventure and fantasy.

    WOW. Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone just leaves you hanging on the edge of your chair! A boy named Harry Potter lives with his Aunty (Aunt Petunia) , Uncle (Uncle Vernon) and cousin (Dudley), after his parents were killed by Lord Voldemort. Harry has been living since them since they got killed (at age 1). Abusing Harry, they receive a letter, informing Harry to go to a school called “Hogwarts school for Witchcraft and Wizardary”. Harry was extremely confused, however he left the Dursleys to go to this school. Going through many ups and downs, making friends and becoming a wizard, Lord Voldemort is trying to get his power back (in which the Philosopher stone holds) after killing harry’s parents. With this, Harry and his friends try to stop him, but can they before it’s too late…I would definitely recommend this book to people who enjoy reading fantasy and adventurous texts. J.K Rowling really wrote this book well and will have you obsessed with it.

    Wow!
    ‘Harry Potter’ Is such a great book filled with curiosity, excitement and laughter.
    This story is about an 11 year old boy who knows nothing about himself and what he is destined to be.

    Harry’s parents died in a car crash when he was a baby, him being left with a scar on his forehead, but was it really true???

    Harry was sent to live with his Aunt and uncle Dursley, who treated him with no respect!.
    Every birthday he had, he was given an old pair of his uncles socks, weather his cousin, would get 37 brilliant presents!
    Poor Harry! having nothing to look forward too! until one day he gets his very first letter addressed to him!.
    a whole thing starts happening when every letter came, uncle Dursley would burn them.
    Whats so petrifying about a letter?.
    It gets to a point when letters are raining furiously around there house so they hide in a house near the sea.
    eventually, a half giant who is a helper at Hogwarts appears from the door, and says the most exiting line “your a wizard harry”
    You must meet Hagrid! he is a kind funny half giant, who treats harry like a friend.
    The letter was an invitation to Hogwarts!.

    Harry goes to a wonderful school of witch craft and wizardry and meats his two best friends.
    Hermione and ron.
    Many adventures and many more discoveries come Harrys way!.

    Find out all the exiting details and read the book!.

    The first novel to one of the most famous series of all time. JK Rowling is able to construct a novel full of emotion, humour and mystery, leaving the reader impatient for the next novel.

    The Philosopher’s stone captures the life of a normal 11 year old boy, Harry Potter whose life utterly changes upon the day of his birthday. His new life as a wizard sweeps the reader into a world of owls with letters, spells and wands and an enchanted school. A truly amazing read, which I would highly recommend to anyone.

    The first book is only the beginning to a truly enchanted world!

    J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone follows the story of a young eleven year old orphan boy who up to this point is nothing out of the ordinary, we soon find out that there is much more to him than meets the eye. This book is one of a kind, wizards, magic, danger, friendship and love brought together to form an awesome adventure. It provides the reader with an escape mechanism, a dream world, something we wish we were apart of. I think that it’s amazing how Rowling can create such a desirable universe within a book that has now become so much more. Many like myself find comfort in the warm pages of a book and if you’re apart of that group I can’t recommend Harry Potter enough.

    “You’re a wizard Harry” is just the beginning of a crazy adventure to stop the return of the ever powerful Voldemort and find the Philosopher’s stone. Follow the ‘golden trio’ throughout the book and grow to love everything the Wizarding World has to offer. 10/10

  9. Harry Potter really needs no introduction, I think absolutely everyone MUST read this series, I think it’s the most iconic series of the twenty first century.

  10. The Harry Potter series is my favourite series of all time – and it all starts with this fabulous book. Readers will adore being thrown into the mystical world of wizards in which Harry lives, and will ignite their love for cherished characters such as Hagrid, Hermione, Ron and Dumbledore.

    The book focuses on 11 year-old Harry, who discovers he is a wizard after living his whole life in the ‘muggle’ word. He boards the train to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and begins to discover this new, mysterious world. What follows is a mixture of excitement, mystery, laughter and suspense, a perfect start to a perfect series.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who loves reading, not just people who love fantasy or mystery, and give it a 10/10!

  11. I really enjoyed reading Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone as it is an exciting, adventurous and thrilling read. Throughout the book Harry uncovers secrets and magic in his school for witchcraft and wizardry called ‘Hogwarts’. My favourite character is Hermione Granger, one of Harry’s best friends, as she is witty and very smart. She is also the character I relate to the most as we both tend to stay on top of school work, rarely get into trouble and have a witty sense of humour.
    I would say the part of the book which I disliked the most was when Harry and Draco Malfoy (Harry’s enemy) get a detention and have to go through the woods with Hagrid (the groundskeeper). Even though it was a mystery to see who the figure was underneath the dark cloak, and who also was killing unicorns to live longer, I thought that part of the book dragged on a little too long.
    This book is great for all ages.The author J.K Rowling created a world full of adventure, fun and mystical places and creatures.This is only the first book from a set of seven.People all around the world would love this series.This book is one of the greatest books I have ever read.

    Harry Potter is the best! The Philosophers Stone is a really great book and introduces us to the magical world in an incredible way. JK Rowling makes the story seem so real and she makes the book so hard to put down! I adore all the Harry Potter series. They are the only magical, fantasy books I enjoy. The characters are incredible. I love Ron for is humour and loyalty and Harry for his kindness and courage. Hermione is one of my favourite characters. She is so strong, loyal, brave, intelligent and kind. She is a great female role model. This book is suspenseful and extraordinary. The relationships between the characters, especially the trio, is very beautiful. I couldn’t put the book down! It is definitely a must-read especially for those who love a sense of adventure and mystery.

    Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone is one of very few books that actually makes the magic seem truly real, it is a great read. My favourite part is when Hermione approaches Harry and Ron and tells them that they had better not come up with another idea to get them killed, or worse, expelled!!
    My favourite characters are Mrs Weasley and Hermione. Mrs Weasley is so kind to Harry and she takes her under her wing and looks after him. Hermione has such a strong, extraordinary personality. No wonder she was put in Gryffindor.I would definitely recommend Harry Potter because the book itself has it’s unique touch from J.K.Rowling. (The Author.)
    Harry Potter can be suitable for most age groups as it takes you on a magical journey.

  16. I absolutely love Harry Potter! There is so much suspense and adventure. It is about a boy called Harry who has been living with his mean aunt, uncle and cousin for the past 11 years. He has a lightning-shaped scar of his forehead but he never knows where it came from. But suddenly, he gets a letter and he goes to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He meets Ron and Hermione and they become close friends. The detail that JK Rowling goes into about all of the spells, potions, quidditch, talking pictures and moving staircases is amazing and it really lets you see into the world of Harry Potter. My favourite part is probably the first quidditch match. It was really interesting to read about the sport that JK Rowling had invented. I also liked when Harry, Ron and Hermione are getting through the challenges so they can save the stone and stop Voldemort.
    I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a good book even if you don’t usually like fantasy or magical books. After you read them you can read them again however many times you want because they are so good! I rate it a 10/10 because it was so amazing!

    I read this book a long time ago, but I think it started me on my love for reading. It is a very interesting and mildly scary book, full of adventure and a little misfortunate. It starts off gloomy because Harry has no parents and his aunt and Uncle are not very nice people, but that changes as he finds out he’s a wizard and moves to a school where he feels at homes and finds life long friends. This happiness is short-lived as Voldemort, an evil wizard tries to kill him when Harry learns the secret of his parents’ death and he has to defeat Voldemort before Voldemort defeats him and takes over the wizarding world. That is why I absolutely love this book and the ones to come as they are full of adventure, excitement and a feeling of wonder, a 10/10.

  24. Starting a new school is hard, especially if it’s full of magic! Harry finds out that he’s a wizard and goes to Hogwarts which is a school full of wizards and witches. Harry starts off alone feeling that he can’t fit in, but he soon made 2 friends called Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. They became the best of friends throughout the whole book.

    What I love about this book is that it has full of adventure and funny moments. My favorite part was when Harry, Ron, and Hermione first met each other because they didn’t know that they will be the best of friends through their school years in Hogwarts.

    I really recommend this book to people who love adventure and magical mysteries. Even to people who don’t like adventure or magical stuff, this book can take you to your imagination. And guess what? It’s a book series! so there are more books after this which can build your imaginations even more! Happy Reading!

  28. It’s not worthy of all the praise it gets. sure it has some high points, and not many low points, but the average level is pretty low. i cant remember a single time i even smiled throughout the whole series. people and places are described well, and so are motivations. the intrigue in later installments are pretty decent. But the story doesn’t really hold up, and has quite a few plotholes. it’s a mediocre book i’d recommend to read in stages, the first two when you are around 8, the next two when you are around 10, and the rest after you’ve become 12 years old. this because the tone shifts very drastically from book 1 to book 7. it could be mistaken as differing series ifn’t the main character had the same name. Although my favourte part would have to be harry telling mouthoy that he can decide who his friends are himself standing up against bullys.

  30. I only read this book recently, a little late it may seem, especially when most people read it in their primary school years, but it’s a timeless book that I think everyone needs to read. I watched the movie many times before I read the book but the book painted the whole world in my mind and opened my imagination to the endless magical world. I like the way the book starts in comparison to the movie, we get to find out just a little more about Harry’s life with the Dursleys and of course get to discover his own thoughts about a lot more than the movie shows. My favourite character has got to be Hermione, she’s just really likeable and sweet. The special thing about the book is that it makes us all wait in anticipation for our Hogwarts acceptance letter, despite being older then 11, or even in our final years of school. There’s no bad part of the book either, nothing you wouldn’t read again and again. If you’re tossing up whether it’s too late to read the series and have already watched the movie, I’m telling you reading the book is worth it, no matter your age.

  31. If you are considering reading the Harry Potter series: Do. It is an amazing series of a young boy who discovers that magic really does exist, and this book is the very start of a whole new world on paper. My favourite part of this book would have to be when Hagrid the Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry’s game keeper tells Harry that he is, in fact a wizard. Learning that his aunt and uncle had known all along he develops a burning passion of hate towards them and can’t wait until September 1st when he can catch the train from Kings cross station to Hogwarts. My favourite characters of this book are Fred and George, Harry’s friend Ron’s older twin brothers. They are the ultimate pranksters and will stop at nothing until the school is in chaos. In the later books Ron’s little sister Ginny becomes my favourite character but she does not show much of an appearance in this book. I only have one thing left to say: read it, or you will regret it

  34. I love this book SO much because when you are reading it, you feel like you are inside the book. I feel like I am actually in Hogwarts, watching the ghosts and duelling enemies. Although some bits are slightly frightening (such as the end), you feel like you are glued to the book and can’t wait to find out what happens next. This amazing book is exciting, fun and hard to stop reading! I think children should read this book when they are 7 or over because it has some hard words in it and some bits are slightly complicated.
    Although this book has been made into a film (along with the rest of the Harry Potter series), I personally think that you should read the book before watching the films because you don’t get the thrill of turning the page and reading frantically to find out what happens next. If you like the sound of the book why don’t you read it? Plus, if you liked it, you can read the next 6 books in the series which are just as good as the first. Happy reading!

  35. This book is about a young boy named Harry Potter who grows up with a rough childhood, he has no parents and is forced to live with his aunt and uncle who mistreat him compared to their biological child. This all changes when Harry turns 11 and he discovers he’s apart of a whole other world. I ended up really liking this book, at the beginning I felt like it was hard to get into and found it a bit boring but after the first few chapters and the book really begins I actually liked it. It’s not something I would read again and it’s not exactly my favourite but I still think it was a good read. If you compare it to its movie they match together really well and you can see how the movie is really similar to the book, which sometimes doesn’t happen with movies and books. This is a fantasy book, about wizards and mystical creatures. I think that this book is well suited for all readers, theres nothing in it that would prevent younger children from reading it. I think that this book would most appeal to people above the age of 11 though. I would rate this book as a 6/10 because I did like it but it’s not the best in my opinion.

  42. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets being the second and one of the most mind-blowing and astonishing novels in the Harry Potter series. It follows the school year of Harry and his peers in an exceptional magic school; Hogwarts. As the year goes on, mysterious occasions continue to occur as a result of the Chamber of Secrets opening once again. Harry along with his two closest friends persevere to find the answer to this unidentified incidence.
    Just like the first, it is superbly written along with a fantastic explanation of each scene making it feel as though you, the reader, are apart of the story.

    This movie is the perfect start to such a legendary series. In this book we discover ‘harry potter’ and the reader can already tell he is destined to do great things. This movie also perfectly introduces harry’s best friends, Ron and hermione and the teachers perfectly- the more likeable characters have a very friendly introduction and the dislikable characters are introduced to show the author’s dislike for them as well. This book, compared to the rest of the series is not very complex and not the most interesting, however it is still a great book that anyone of any age can read and enjoy. I give this book 4/5 stars, a very entertaining read!

I would give this book a 10/10 as it is one of my favourite books in the world and I am so glad that I found it.

  45. The book Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone is about a young orphan boy named Harry Potter with a mysterious past. Harry’s journey begins when he discovers his parents were a wizard and a witch, resulting in his acceptance into Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry, were he makes close friendships with Hermione and Ron. The book follows Harry through his accomplishments and most of all his challenges as he tries to find out more about his parents, their life and himself. The book gets its name ‘the philosopher’s stone’ as there is a stone hidden within the Hogwarts school, Voldemort is out to get the stone as it grants its owner immorality, Harry and his friends put it upon themselves to make sure the stone doesn’t fall into the hands of Voldemort. Throughout the book Harry desperately tries to piece together his complicated life. My favourite character is Hermione, she is smart, sensible and loyal to her friends. I really loved reading this book and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    i really enjoyed reading this book, because I am interested more in fantasy and magical features. I believe that this book is really great because the characters in the book are well described. The book follows a young 11-year-old boy who is trying to recover from his parent’s death. This death is a huge part of wizarding history, because ‘he who should not be named’ killed Harry’s parents. He shortly realizes that he is special and needs to be brought to Hogwarts. Harry grows a long lasting friendship between a boy named Ron and a girl named Heromine. I really enjoyed this book because I feel that the author has well described the stories, and his created a world that is suitable for everyone to enjoy. The author is a huge part of the creation of the Harry Potter films. I rate this book a 10/10!

  49. It took me a long time to start reading the Harry Potter series, though as soon as I started I couldn’t stop. The book it full of adventure and mystery and J.K Rowling always finds a way to keep you interested. Looking at the books, they are so big and thick and I always used to think they would be boring. Though it was the total opposite. I never usually enjoy fantasy and mysterious books but reading Harry Potter has changed my perspective of everything. As soon as you pick the book up you don’t want to put it down. My favourite character is Hermione because she is so strong and determined, I love how smart she is and strong minded. She is an inspiring role model who teaches you to always try your hardest and do the things you love. Overall I really love this book, and Also love all of the movies!

It’s about Harry Potter who goes to the magical school Hogwarts. Him and his parents get attacked by Voldemort who manages to kill both of Harry’s parents but not Harry.

His name is Harry Potter and even though his life at start is full of loneliness and not many opportunities, his life is turned around quick. Harry Potter is taken to another world. He’s now at Hogwarts, a school for Wizards and where mysterious events take place. This book is one big adventure which keeps you wanting to read onwards. It’s full of adventure, it’s mysterious and it’s magical too. This is a short novel that would be recommended for children wanting a bit of imagination involved and is full of excitement.

    Harry Potter and the philosophers stone is the first book of a fantastic series. I love the part when Hermione granger comes into the compartment because she is so attached and friendly to harry and sarcastic with Ron. I also love when she sates to Ron, “You have dirt on your nose, just here”. Later on they go through a series of trials in order to save the philosophers stone from who they think is Snape. In the end they realise that it’s actually professor Quirrell who was being possessed by Voldemort. Even though it doesn’t involve much action it’s still very interesting to read how he got through his school year and I find it really funny how they think that they are better than everyone else. My favourite scene is when they are in charms and Hermione sates to Ron, “ Your doing it wrong, it’s leviOsar not leviosar”.

    Harry Potter is an inspiring book to become something you have never dreamed of being and reach out side of your familiarities in life. Harry Potter is a one of a kind book series and I loved every word written. Ron Weasley is my favourite character because of his awkward and definitely hillarious sense of humour. His famous jokes gets me every time. My favourite part of Harry Potter and Philosopher’s Stone is when Harry is told he is a wizard by half-giant Hagrid, the grounds keeper at Hogwarts.

This book has some really cool parts to it like the chapters in Diagon Alley. There is also some fantastic quotes from this book that will remain with you forever.

    Some might say I am a tiny bit obsessed with all of the Harry Potters, but how can you blame me, I mean it’s Harry Potter. So basically Harry has been neglected by the Dursley’s for 11 years now every since Voldemort ( He Who Should Not Be Named ) killed Harry’s parents. His mother saved is life. Harry keeps on getting bombarded with letters inviting him to come to Hogwarts School Of Wizardry, but the Dursley’s never let him read them. The Dursley’s get so sick on this mail everyday that they stay in this weird lighthouse thing in the water. Hagrid ( the Hogwarts Game keeper ) comes and gives him the letter. of course Harry does not know that he is a wizard yet until Hagrid tells him. Hagrid also brought in a birthday cake for harry and Dudley the Dursley’s son steals it and eats it. Hagrid then gives him a pig tail and heads off. Anyway a lot of things happen in this time and Harry ends up catching the Hogwarts express form platform 9 and 3/4 to Hogwarts. He meets Ron and Hermione along the way on the train. The 3 of them get their houses picked from the sorting hat. They are all in Gryffindor. I could write a lot more about this book but i would be here for days, so I will leave it there.

    Although this book is a fantasy book, I do think that anyone would enjoy it, no matter which genre of book you like, it is suitable for anyone. This book is probably the most innocent bok in the series, it gets a bit darker after this.

Little does he know what is ahead of him. The characters in this book are fantastic, they are all different and very intriguing and interesting, but all in very different ways. The characters are all also very relatable especially because they are all of similar age to us, so that makes the book fantastic as well. The story line and plot is very well planned in terms of the sequence of events. It has been very cleverly thought out and adds a sense of mystery.

    I think of this book like, the perfect book to start off a perfect series. I absolutely loved ALL of the harry potter books, but my three favourites are ‘Philosophers Stone’ ‘Goblet of Fire’ and ‘Deathly Hallows’.

    I have always preffered books to movies, and this is no exception. I feel like when reading books, I can let my imagination run wild, whereas with a movie, you are confined to what you see in front of you. J.K. Rowling is one of my favourite authors and I loved the whole series.

    Overall I would rate this book 10/10, I can’t flaw it!! The plot was amazing, and it was beautifully written, the first book, I think, is suitable for a variety of people, but I would say for readers 7+ .

    This book is the first book in the Harry Potter series and it is definite my favourite. It is a type of book that once you start the book you just can’t put it down. Once you’ve read the first book you have to read the whole series. For me this book is one of the very few books I can read over and over and over again, and not get bored or sick of reading it. If you haven’t already watched the Harry Potter movie I would definitely recommend to read the book series first, then watch the movie.

It has so many twists and turns that make you want to keep reading. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for fantasy, adventure and drama.

    I really enjoyed reading this book, as it is the first of 7, and the beginning of a 7 year adventure (26 years if you count the 19 at the end of deathly hallows) and it was descriptive and it is for all ages. I enjoyed the part where Ron, Harry and Hermione all meet for the first time, in the train carriage. I really recommend this book for people who are looking for something to read.

  98. I have absolutely loved this book and movie and i feel like it gets better every time that I watch or read it again. This is a great read about the incredible adventures of Harry Potter, and his friends. My favourite character is probably Hermione but i don’t really know why, i just really like her. I think both the movie and the book are great but, as always, the book has so much more detail and little parts that the movie just didn’t show. It was an extremely exciting book and is an amazing beginning to the harry potter series. I defiantly recommend this book to everyone. It is such a fabulous book and film!! I rate it a 9/10 🙂

  99. Harry Potter is a book that I myself particularly like. What’s a book without a little supernatural fantasy? Plain dullness that eats your soul like the dementors. Plain garbage. This comment does not conern only the first book, but the whole series! You think this book was magical? Try the whole series! I can guarantee it will be wicked! The book basically is telling the readers that when life is hard throw some pixie dust and continue to wave your wand without stopping and never give up to achieve your dreams like the happy person you should be. >3

    This book will inspire you, it will lift your mood and brighten your day. I have read the whole Harry Potter series over 7 times; in which I laughed, cried and loved.I stayed up very late nights to early mornings until my eyelids were to heavy. I first read the series in Grade 3/4 and the mere thought or metion of Harry Potter brings a smile to my face.

    The plot is enlightening and follows Harry Potter in his first year at the magical wizarding school Hogwarts. Little does he know he is a wizard until letters and owls and Hagrid. He then meets Best Friends Ron and Hermionie and they save the school of Hogwarts and the whole wizarding community. I would recomend this to any 9 years+ and would rate this stunning book 10/10.

  102. I read this book in my primary school years, I found that it was very gripping and I really enjoyed it. I don’t think everyone would though. Depending on what you enjoy the Harry Potter series is of all lovers of mystery, magic and adventure. magic being they key. Harry is a young boy, his parents killed by the evil Voldemort. Something held Voldemort back from killing Harry that night though, he just couldn’t do it.
    harry has grown up and goes to Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. They learn that harry is special, his parents were special at this school. Harry evolves wonderful friendships and great memories at Hogwarts. But there is always Voldemort for Harry to worry about. This book includes lots of fun and adventure. It’s a great read. I would recommend this book anyone who hasn’t read it before!

  103. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone
    I only read this book recently, a little late it may seem, especially when most people read it in their primary school years, but it’s a timeless book that I think everyone needs to read. I watched the movie many times before I read the book but the book painted the whole world in my mind and opened my imagination to the endless magical world. I like the way the book starts in comparison to the movie, we get to find out just a little more about Harry’s life with the Dursleys and of course get to discover his own thoughts about a lot more than the movie shows. My favourite character has got to be Hermione, she’s just really likeable and sweet. The special thing about the book is that it makes us all wait in anticipation for our Hogwarts acceptance letter, despite being older then 11, or even in our final years of school. There’s no bad part of the book either, nothing you wouldn’t read again and again. If you’re tossing up whether it’s too late to read the series and have already watched the movie, I’m telling you reading the book is worth it, no matter your age.

  104. In primary school I always used to hear the older kids rant and rave about the Harry potter series. So in grade 1, I borrowed this book out from the school library and gave it a crack. It was way too hard as a 6 year old, but the following year I tried again, and I fell in love with the entire series.
    The Philosopher’s Stone sets up the scene for the rest of the series so nicely, introducing Harry, a neglected wizard who was abandoned to live with his rude and arrogant muggle aunt, uncle and cousin. When he discovers his true identity and ends up in the magical world of Hogwarts and witchcraft, every page is filled with crazy words, spells and creatures that allow your imagination to run wild. It’s a great book because it gives you the opportunity to transfer J.K Rowling’s writings into extraordinary visions in your mind. I think it’s every kid’s dream to wake up one morning and realise that you’re actually not a muggle, I know that applies to my childhood self!
    It’s such a classic and must read for ANYONE of ALL AGES, no matter what genres you normally read or even if you don’t read at all, the HP series includes something that appeals to everyone, and once you start, you don’t stop until the final page of the Deathly Hallows.

    The Harry Potter series of books are a wonderful escape into the fantasy world of wizardry. They are well written books and I, an adult, could not put them down. J.K. Rowlings has captured the imaginations of adults as well as children. Having received an email entitled “Harry Potter Repackaged”, I must say “GET A LIFE AND DON’T TAKE YOURSELVES SO SERIOUSLY!” to the people who have produced that video. Apparently they think that the Harry Potter books have unlocked queries about the power of witchcraft and made evil look innocent! Their actions are the evil ones their suggestions are dangerous and could inspire the very issues that they are trying to avert! The bottom line is -you should not “real”ize fantasy and that’s exactly what they are doing. How dare they!!! To me, this is as absurd as the people who pronounced Enid Blyton’s “Noddy” books to be unsuitable as well.
    In my opinion, this is wrong! The books are purely entertaining and do not even pretend to be real!!
    Let’s celebrate the fact that J.K.Rowlings has inspired children to read books again.We should also give children credit for being able to distinguish between fact and fantasy. Everybody knows the difference, or so I thought!

  106. I don’t know why I waited so long to read this series, but I have to say it did change the way I read and see my books. Harry Potter thinks he is an ordinary boy. He lives with his Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and cousin Dudley, who are mean to him and make him sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. Then Harry starts receiving mysterious letters and his life is changed forever. He is whisked away by a beetle-eyed giant of a man and enrolled at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The reason: Harry Potter is a wizard! The first book in the “Harry Potter” series makes the perfect introduction to the world of Hogwarts.This exciting and adventurous book is recommended for 12 and above. I would give this book 10/10.

This book was incredible because you get to go into a new world of wizards, witches, magic, Hogwarts and amazing adventures. My favourite part of the book was probably when Harry and Ron had to run through platform 9 and 3/4. This was crazy and really just the whole book was amazing because I wished that I could go to Hogwarts – I wish that this was real! My favourite character is Harry Potter, because even in the first novel at age 11, he’s still so brave, loyal and never gives up on his friends. I can relate to Hermione and Harry in the book, because some parts of their personalities are like mine; I’m loyal to my friends and hardworking at school like Hermione. I don’t have a least favourite part in this book because all of it is so great. JK Rowling can take the reader into the world of Hogwarts and you can imagine everything, so I wouldn’t change anything at all. I would definitely recommend this book to literally anyone. It does say it’s a “children’s book” but it’s really not. Adults read Harry Potter, teenagers do, so really anyone who loves adventures, magic, action and fantasy, or just anyone who loves a great book.

    Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone is a must read book, it is an all round favourite even is you are not into wizarding books/films. Personally my favourite part of the book is when Harry, Ron and Hermione Play real wizarding chess and Ron sacrifices himself, this shows us bravery and courage, something we all need in our own lives. This is my favourite part because the three of them are together helping and encouraging each other doing what all friends need to do. Hermione Granger is my favorite character in this story because she triggers something that makes you like her, she is determined, smart and a likable character.

    Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by Joanne Rowling

    If you are considering reading the Harry Potter series: Do. It is an amazing series of a young boy who discovers that magic really does exist, and this book is the very start of a whole new world on paper.

    My favorite part of this book would have to be when Hagrid the Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry’s game keeper tells Harry that he is, in fact a wizard. Learning that his aunt and uncle had known all along he develops a burning passion of hate towards them and can’t wait until september 1st when he can catch the train from Kings cross station to Hogwarts.

    My favorite character or in this case characters of this book are Fred and George, Harry’s friend Ron’s older twin brothers. They are the ultimate pranksters and will stop at nothing until the school is in chaos. In the later books Ron’s little sister Ginny becomes my favorite character but she does not show much of an appearance in this book.

    I only have one thing left to say: read it, or you will regret it.

    Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone is the beginning of a fantastic magical journey.

    When Harry was a baby his parents were killed by Lord Voldemort leaving Harry to live with his mean Aunt and Uncle and rude cousin Dudley. Harry was not liked by the Dursleys and he didn’t like them. The Dursleys did not care for Harry but gave all their time and attention to Dudley. But one day he gets a strange letter in the post, telling him he is a wizard! Harry’s life is turned on it’s head as he experiences things he has only ever dreamed of.

    This book is amazing! I would strongly recommend this book from ages 10+. I love the way J.K. Rowling has included other mysteries along the way, not just focusing on the main problem. The way she describes different people/objects/scenes leaves you with a vivid picture in your mind! One you start this book you won’t be able to stop!

  142. This book will last forever; it will be a classic passed down from genration to generation. Because it is set in a magical world it will never really get old. It is the first book in a winning series that will have you pick up the next book as soon as you read the last page of the previous one.
    Harry is a boy living in a horrible world: his parents died when he was a only one year old. His aunty and uncle had reluctantly taken him in. They do not care for him at all, and treat him as a slave. Harry’s cousin and their son, Dudley, is a spoiled child who is greatly favoured over Harry. One day, though, Harry’s whole life changes with a single letter in the post.
    Harry is a wizard.
    he goes off to Hogwarts, a special school for witches and wizards. He makes new friends, and of course some enemies along the way.
    One of my favourite parts in this book is when Harry is taken to a Diagon Alley, a wizarding town where he can shop for all the things he needs for school, and more. This part is so magical, and will make you wish that you were a wizard just like Harry.
    I give this book a 10/10. I guarantee that you will NEVER forget this captivating book.

    I loved harry potter and the philosopher’s stone because it it so interesting and it has an amazing story line. When i first read the book i loved it it was so good and I could not put the book down I loved it. My favourite characters in the book are Hermione, Harry,Ron and heaps more characters too. I think that this book is for ages 9 and up because it is a pretty long book also there is a lot of text in the so it takes some time to read. But if you read books fast than it might not take you as long. I would rate this book an 9.5 out of ten because it is a really good book it is interesting the book has a great storyline and the book is really good. One of my favourite parts in the book would be when Harry, Hermione and Ron try and get the philosopher’s stone and they have to do all types of things to get the stone. This book is great and if you seen the movie and have not read the book than you are miss out! The book is always better than the movie (i think) because the movie can not fit all of the things in it and the book just tells you more. Overall this book is great,fun and interesting and if you like the movie than you will love the book.

  162. Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone.
    I absolutely LOVED this book, the Harry Potter series is probably one my all-time favourite!! I liked this book because J.K Rowling produced a whole different world about wizarding people and in many cases, I always think if it could be real! She truly made me understand the way each character was feeling, and described everything so well, that I thought I was a part of the novel. After reading the first few chapters, I was hooked!! I only recently got into the Harry Potter series, because I don’t usually like reading fantasy books, but I am glad my friend made me read the first few chapters of this novel, because if I hadn’t read Harry Potter, I would have been missing out on a whole lot in my life!! My favourite part in the book was when Harry, Ron and Hermione had just become friends and now they had to get through like a maze of charms and enchantments because this is an adventurous part. My favourite character is Ron, because he is kind of the “nobody” out of the trio because Hermione is super smart and Harry is famous…I like Ron because of his Loyalty to Harry, and he is also very funny! I don’t have a least favourite part in the book, nor would I change any of it, because it is brilliantly written and I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the wizarding world at Hogwarts!! I would most certainly recommend this book to others, even if they think they wont enjoy it, they certainly will because I think this book is for any types of people (mainly ages 12+)…so have a go…it might surprise you!! I rate this novel 10/10!

    Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone wasn’t just the beginning of a series, it was the beginning of a saga which has lasted over a decade. J.K. Rowling uses her creativity to weave a fantasy tale about young Harry, who, on his birthday finds out that he is a wizard. What follows is a tale full of adventure, excitement and magic. With his new friends Ron and Hermione, Harry conquers the magical game of Quidditch, faces up to the creepy creatures around the castle and finally defeats the secret hidden in the forbidden third floor. I would recommend this book to everyone, young and old, it is a great read and thoroughly enjoyable when curled up on the couch with a hot chocolate! J.K. Rowling writes beautifully and she captures your attention from the very first page. Also, I would recommend reading the book before watching the movie, as the movie can really help with putting the story to the corresponding images, and helps put names to faces too. This book isn’t just for fantasy lovers, I truly believe anyone could enjoy this book, sports lovers, humour lovers and maybe even romance lovers.

    Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone was written by J.K Rowling, and the first ever Harry Potter book in a 7 book series, obviously the first. It is Harry’s first years at Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and to find out more detail, so either read the book or watch the movie. I loved the book because I have always loved Harry Potter and I only saw the movies. Until I read the Philosopher’s Stone, I was so amazed on how different the movie was to the book. There were so many differences that I found out and it was extraordinary! My favourite part of the movie was probably when Harry is battling with Voldermort/ Professor Quirrel, over the Philosopher’s Stone. My favourite characters are Harry because he is strong, thoughtful, smart and talented, Ron because he is so funny when he is scared of everything, very brave in the end while playing giant Wizards Chess, and of course Hermione because she is super, smart, deep in thought and absolutely incredible! Sadly, I can’t really relate to any of the characters other than Hermione because I think we are both very smart, and we think the same. (LOL!!) My least favourite part in the book was probably when, in the movie, Harry is in the Forbidden Forest and approaches Voldermort, because I thought that if the centaur didn’t come, Harry could have died or been in serious danger. If I were J.K Rowling, I wouldn’t want or have to change anything in the book, because I like it just the way it is, the way I read it. I would recommend this book/ movie to any person, because I am positive that they will love Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone movie and/or book, and the rest of the series as well. I think any type of person would love this book/movie, especially people who are into magic, and the make-believe stories. So, my advice would be, watch the movie, read the book, even do both because no matter what, everyone, including you, will and should love Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone, and of course the rest of the book and movie series!!

  176. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K.Rowling is the first book in the seven book Harry Potter series and is necessary to read if you want to understand the other books. It is Harry’s first year of Hogwarts and the year he finds out the truth of his powers. He meets and makes two friends, Hermione and Ron. This is a book of, now well known, quotes such as “It’s Levi-osa not Levio-sa”. You meet the characters and, my favourite, Neville. It is a great book for children ages 8 and up because Harry Potter is a terrific story to grow up with. I give this book 10/10 because I don’t know anyone who can read it and then dislike it. As soon as you read the first page, you will fall in love with this book!

  177. Harry Potter And The Philosophers Stone is the first book written by J.K Rowling in te Harry Potter series. All i can say about this book is that it is absolutely amazing, it is humorous, romantic and best of all magical.

    J.K Rowling is such an inspiration to everyone as she really knows how to get you sucked into a book and how to make it exciting with a new problem or adventure at every page turn.
    I recommend reading every single Harry Potter book and then watching every single Harry Potter movie as you will be blown away by how good they are.
    I have read and seen every movie around 1000 times and i can honestly say i have laughed, smiled, felt nervous, scared and even have had tears streaming down my face at some point.
    I recommend this book to everyone over the age of ten because it can be pretty dark and sad at some point but all up it is absolutely amazing and i can read it over and over again.

    He grows up not knowing anything about who he really is or even where he came from.

It’s the first story in its’ collection and introduces the reader into Harry Potter’s life and how he becomes the great wizard he is famous for being. A terrific book, but only for Twilight-Haters. 10/10!

  197. This book is the first Harry Potter book and it was a really good start to an amazing series. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone is about a young 11 year old boy named Harry Potter. For as long as he could remember he lived with his aunty, uncle and cousin, because his parents were killed, but when a half-giant comes for him to tell him he’s a wizard, his life is turned upside down. He goes to Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. He becomes friends with Ron Weasley and Hermiony Granger who both know more about him than he does. He discovers the truth of his parents death and fights the very thing that did it.
    I fell in love with this story of how Harry learns to use magic and make posions, so he can become a powerful wizard. This book opened my eyes to the world of magic and I love the whole series. I recommend this book to everyone, its a good read and the story is the most amazing story EVER!!!!!

  198. When I read this book I didn’t really get the story line. For me I hated it but I guess some people do like it. It is probably one of the worst books I have read! 0/10 and 2 thumbs DOWN!

  200. Yes, because everything is so well explained and detailed but very easy to understand. My favourite part of this book is when Hagrid comes to the little island to get Harry and takes him to Diagon Alley. My favourite character is Ron Weasley, because he is very cute and is very nice to Harry.
    I can sort of relate to Hermione Granger, because she always want to be a good student and get good grades.
    If I had to think of a part that I hated, I would think of the first chapter. It’s a bit confusing because it is in Harry’s Uncle Vernon’s perspective and then it goes into Harry’s.
    All together this is a great book but if you read the first book you’ll want to read them all!

  202. I can safely say that this is the only series of books i can read over and over and not get sick of. They are so intricate, probabaly some of the most intricate books ever written. Every minor character ends up involved in the ending in one way or another and it’s fun to read them back over to pick up all the clues you missed the first time around.
    Now unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last decade you know the story. A boy named Harry Potter is living a normal life until he is told he is a wizard and accepted into a school of magic. There he makes friends with Ron Weasly and Hermione Granger and together they continuously thwart the evil lord Voldemort in his quest for power over the wizarding world.
    If you liked the movies but haven’t read the books you’re missing out. There is so much detail in these books that a two hour movie can never contain. So start reading now before the last movie comes out and wrecks the ending. Read the books. If you liked the movie you won’t regret it.

  211. Harry Potter and Philosophers Stone is about Harry and he goes to a school called Hogwarts and it’s a witchcraft and wizardry school. Harry learns about how to use a wand and use spells, he meets new friends Hermione and Ron and they become good friends. Harry, Hermione and Ron are the main characters. The problems were that Harry tries and kill Voldemort but doesn’t succeed. Harry Potter is my favourite character because he’s a good wizard.

    I liked this book it’s fantasy and magical things happen in the book. My favourite part is when he is trying to defeat Voldemort. My least favourite is the start because it’s not that interesting. I wouldn’t change anything in this book because it’s all good.

    I recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy and magical creatures. Even though most people have read them, it’s good to read them a couple more times. Enjoy!
