Review - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J. K. Rowling


Title -  Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Author - J K Rowling

Publisher - Bloomsbury

Pages - 352


Blurb- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is the first novel of the much appreciated Harry Potter series. An abridged version of the same novel, this book has been brought out by Bloomsbury Press for children aged between eight and twelve years. The story unfolds with a letter arriving for Harry Potter, a simple boy, that brings with it a dark secret. The letter reveals to Harry Potter that both his parents were wizards and were killed by a Dark Lord’s curse when he was just a baby. Thereafter Potter's journey to the Hogwarts, a school of wizards brimming with magic, mystery and enchantment, spins out into a fascinating tale. After his journey to Hogwarts, young Harry learns of a missing stone — a stone which can be both terrifying and valuable at the same time, depending on who possesses it and how one uses it. Will Harry Potter and his friends be able to get hold of the stone is how the story unfolds from here on? It is here Harry Potter’s long journey spread over 7 books really begins. In simple words and rich prose, this children’s edition rightly captures the essence of the Harry Potter’s first novel and promises to take the children on an enchanting ride to the magical world order.

ReviewHarry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J. K. Rowling It's not just a story that you will read you will feel too, the characterization and the gripping story takes you to some different imaginary world, you won't even think that does this world exist or not. you will fall in love with each and every character present in this book. you may have seen the movie but I bet you will enjoy this novel more than the movie. in the movie, many scenes were skipped or not picturized just to keep the film short and not too long but in this book, you will find many things which aren't present in the film. now I became a fan of the Harry Potter series and I've decided to complete entire series by end of this year. I would like to thank one of my reader friend who suggested me to read this book. and you know what I haven't any movie of harry potter series which is the best thing. I will watch each movie in the series after reading the book of that part. to compare the differences.
