Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Why read this one?... What tempted me to read this book? Until recently I had not considered reading this book, I had seen all of the movies because my daughter had insisted that they were so good I had to do. I have to admit to finding them enjoyable ...

Harry Potter And Philosopher's stone [UMD Mini for PSP] [DVD]

Harry Potter And Philosopher's stone [UMD Mini for PSP] [DVD]

As the first Harry Potter film of the celebrated series, this is a must for ardent fans ... more

and newcomers to the global fantasy phenomenon. An
adaptation of J. K. Rowling's enchanting, funny
debut novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's
Stone (known as the Sorcerer's Stone in the US),
its our first big-screen encounter with the series
well-loved characters and the goings-on at
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  We
meet orphan Harry Potter (played by a young Daniel
Radcliffe) while hes as yet unaware of his magical
powers and is living a miserable existence with
his horrible Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia. A
mysterious letter arrives, delivered by the
friendly giant Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane in fine
acting form), inviting Harry to study at the
exclusive Hogwarts School and he soon discovers
his true heritage as the son of a wizard and a
witch. Hes also gained widespread notoriety, being
the only survivor of an attack by the evil wizard
Voldemort that killed both his parents. The film
explores Harrys growing realisation that there are
two worlds: the non-magical world of humans,
called "Muggles", in which he used to reside and
the magical fantasy world of wizardry that is his
destiny. The greatest strength of the film comes
from its faithfulness to the novel, and this new
cinematic world is filled with all the details of
Rowling's imagination, thanks to exuberant sets,
elaborate costumes, clever makeup and visual
effects, and a crème de la crème cast, including
Maggie Smith, Richard Harris, Alan Rickman and
more. Especially fine is the interplay between
Harry and his new schoolmates Ron (Rupert Grint)
and Hermione (Emma Watson) as they club together
to fight the forces of evil. --Sally Giles

Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone – DVD

The first in the wonderful best-selling series of novels by writer J.K. Rowling comes ... more

‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s
Stone’. The journey is just beginning for
Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe); as an eleven year
old orphan who lives in the cupboard under the
stairs of his aunt’s house Harry has not had
the best of lives up until this point. He is

were murdered by a horrifying dark wizard. He will
soon attend a wizarding school and learn much that
he never thought possible; he will learn how to

The Philosophers Stone Review with images

AdvantagesWritten by J K Rowling - she knows how to tell a story

DisadvantagesWhy did it take me so long to get around to reading it?

"...it proves a disappointment when Harry is headhunted by Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft - something that uncle Vernon had swore would never be allowed to happen. Having endured almost ten years with this muggle family Harry looked forward to a new home and good times at Hogwarts and sure enough there will be plenty to be thankful for - but dark magic and an evil enemy have other plans for Harry Potter and it will become evident that he is ..."

Harry Potter, the phenomenon begins...

AdvantagesGreat book that gets children reading, fires the imagination

DisadvantagesPlot is dark for younger children, may be difficult to get into at first

"...lightning scar to prove it, Harry is left with his only remaining relatives who despise him. His Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon and cousin Dudley (the Dursleys), finds himself average at school, with no friends, and no idea that he is soon to become an eleven year old wizard. Harry isn't a boy genius like Artemis Fowl. He isn't a fully-fledged necromancer like Sabriel. He's "Harry, just Harry." The Phenomenon... ================ And that's why the ..." Read review

The Start of a Magical Journey...

AdvantagesEverything!

DisadvantagesNothing!

"...as myself - self proclaimed Harry Potter nut - has yet to review anything Potter related. This is because I love this series so much, I'm not sure my reviews could do the books justice. However, with less than a month to go before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, I think the time is right to try and persuade those who have not read any Harry Potter, that this is something they need to read! **Blurb** "Harry Potter thinks he is an ordinary ..."

Wonderful wizardry

AdvantagesExciting!

DisadvantagesIt's supposed to be for kids!

"...the boxed set of the Harry Potter books from my friend, and although this review is technically about the Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone, I have to recommend that you read them all! The Philosopher's Stone starts off in a normal house on a normal street. In that house live a family called the Dursley's. Mr. and Mrs. Dursley live there with their beloved son Dudley and an impostor called Harry who lives under the stairs amongst the spiders. ..." Read review
