Harry potter and the philosophers stone book review
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone | Synopsis & Facts | iatt-ykp.orgMy favourite series and possible favourite book of all time are the Harry Potter series by J. Before I write this review can I just say that I'm not a fantasy reader. The first book is Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The story starts with Number 4 Privet Drive about a boy called Harry Potter who lives in the cupboard under the stairs of a house owned by Mr and Mrs Dursley with their overly spoiled son called Dudley. In the fist quarter of the book it shows how Harry begins to receive letters which are addressed to him, in his cupboard and at the top of the letter a crest show the letters S,G,R AND H embellished with a snake, a griffin, an eagle and a badger. Even though this alone sounds mysterious Mr and Mrs Dursley don't allow him to read the letters and will go to any length to stop him. As the book progresses The Dursleys go away to a hut in the middle of the ocean to ensure no letters can arrive, but at midnight before Harry's birthday a giant of a man, later on to be recognised as Hagrid, bursts in and tells Harry he's a wizard!

Review: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
I must be one of the few people in the Western world who had never read any of the Harry Potter books. So how did I come to read Harry Potter? But I have been feeling creatively stuck, and I needed a break from the classics, romantic fiction, murder mysteries and other such works of fiction. He has just lost his parents, who were killed by Voldemort, an evil and wicked wizard that is feared by many. Although an infant, he gains the reputation for being special, since no one has ever survived an attack by Voldemort. A few hours later, Aunt Petunia opens the door to put out some milk bottles, and screams when she sees the infant. Neither Petunia nor her husband Vernon, ever tell Harry about his background, and he is growing up not knowing that he is a wizard.
IloveLunaLovegood: 'I'm not a fantasy reader so the fact that Harry Potter is fantasy just shows how amazing the books are!'.

The Dursleys barely tolerate Harry, and Dudley bullies him. One day Harry is astonished to receive a letter addressed to him in the cupboard under the stairs where he sleeps. Before he can open the letter, however, Uncle Vernon takes it. Letters for Harry subsequently arrive each day, in increasing numbers, but Uncle Vernon tears them all up, and finally, in an attempt to escape the missives, the Dursleys go to a miserable shack on a small island. Upon arrival at the school, the students are sorted into one of four houses—Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin. Harry ends up in Gryffindor, and during his eventful first year at Hogwarts he becomes close friends with two other members of the house, Ron Weasley, who comes from an old wizarding family, and Hermione Granger, whose parents are Muggles those who are not magical. Harry also finds that he has an enemy in Draco Malfoy Slytherin.
