Book Description

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone novel review by J. K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is the first book in the Harry Potter series, written by J.K. Rowling. It follows the story of a young orphan boy named Harry Potter, who discovers that he is a wizard and embarks on a journey to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The story begins with Harry living with his abusive relatives, the Dursleys, until he receives a letter inviting him to attend Hogwarts. The Dursleys initially try to prevent Harry from attending the school, but he eventually makes it there with the help of Hagrid, a friendly half-giant. At Hogwarts, Harry befriends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger and learns about the wizarding world.

However, Harry also learns about the dark wizard, Voldemort, who killed his parents and tried to kill him as a baby. Voldemort's presence is still felt in the wizarding world, and it becomes clear that he is trying to return to power. Harry and his friends soon discover that someone is trying to steal the Philosopher's Stone, a powerful object that can grant immortality, from Hogwarts. They set out to stop the thief and uncover a plot involving one of Hogwarts' professors and Voldemort himself.

Throughout the book, Harry learns about his past and the wizarding world, makes new friends, and faces challenges and obstacles. He also learns more about his own abilities as a wizard and the power of love and friendship.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is a beloved classic that has captured the hearts of readers of all ages.
