Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

I read the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling.

In the book, Harry Potter, the main character learns who he really is on his eleventh birthday. He is a wizard destined to go to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. There, he meets some people who seem to know a lot more about him, than he himself does, which is quite a surprise for him. Soon after, he meets his new but amazing friends, the kind headmaster and the strict Hogwarts teachers.

There is also someone who desperately wants to meet Harry. When he atlast has a nice little chat with the person, he gets a gift. That someone is Lord Voldemort, the dark wizard who killed Harry’s parents and gave him a lightning shaped scar on his forehead. The adventure in this book has just started a whole bunch of tricks and the magical world has to face much greater challenges.

When I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone for the first time, I was bewildered by J. K. Rowling’s imagination. SHe had a unique name for each of her characters and even the smallest character was of some importance. When I started reading this book, I didn’t notice the time flow. I was glued to the book because I was really curious about what was going to happen.

My favourite character, of course, is Hermione! SHe is uses her knowledge smartly and only when absolutely necessary. She doesn’t panic under tough situations and problems. Instead, she tries to find out a solution.

Do I recommend Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone? Yes, of course! This book is wonderful time pass.
