Harry Potter & The Philosopher's Stone

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is J.K Rowling's first book in the seven-book series. The story is about Harry, a seemingly ordinary boy from London. He is an orphan who lives with the Dursleys (his aunt, uncle and cousin), who mistreat him every day.

Cover by Bloomsbury Children's Book / Amazon India.

As a letter from a strange place called Hogwarts finds its way to Harry on his 11th birthday, his life turns upside down. Harry finds himself on his way to a magical world which non-magical people, or 'muggles', neither know about nor understand. There, he joins a school of magic and makes new friends. As Harry learns about the world of wizardry and the truth behind how his parents died, he comes to know about the evil wizard, Lord Voldemort, who poses the biggest threat to the wizarding world. Harry also discovers a dangerous secret hidden within the castle, which would be detrimental to the wizarding world if Lord Voldemort finds it. The adventures that Harry and his friends embark on to save the magical world from the rise of evil in the rest of the story.

Even though it is a children's book, it can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Harry's story is filled with mystery, wonder, varied characters and enthralling adventures, from fire-breathing dragons to invisibility cloaks. It is delightful with author J.K Rowling's intricate and gripping storytelling. The relationship the characters share teaches readers about kindness, acceptance and compassion. I would highly recommend this book.

Vriddhi gives Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone a 5 star rating.
