Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

RATINGS & REVIEW

10/05/2016 10:21:49 PM - Greg
YOU JUST GOTTA HAVE FAITH!
HARRY POTTER BOOK ONE - THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE The story of an orphaned boy raised by relatives who hate every thing about him, and who turns out to be one of the world’s most powerful wizards - is one of the greatest publishing success stories the world has ever seen. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is book one of seven, and not only has the series gone on to sell hundreds of millions of copies around the world - but more significantly, countless of millions of lives have been changed, and (dare i say it) saved, and redirected to the powers of reading and thereby strengthening of our individual imaginations. These facts alone are enough to justify giving the entire seven book series full marks. But I won’t get ahead of myself. This story can be reviewed on several levels. I wont claim to be something I am not, so my review will focus primarily on the story telling side of this phenomenon. At book’s commencement, the reader is introduced to those revolting people referred to by Ms Rowling as ’The Dursleys’. Poor Harry is kept ’under the stairs’ for years in a vain (and stupid) bid by Dursley Snr to control the (natural) growth of magic in the potential Boy Wonder. Of course, the efforts of domination and control by this stupid man amount to pushing water uphill and it is not long before ’strange’ things start to happen to people around Harry. (The alert reader will see that these are all performed by Harry without him being aware of doing it - which thereby suggests his subconscious is performing the magic. Which leads to countless further questions...) As Harry’s Eleventh Birthday approaches, letters from Hogwarts School of Witch Craft and Wizardry begin to arrive addressed to Harry’s attention, but of course these are intercepted by the Dursleys in yet more vain attempts to control events and powers that are way beyond them. And this is where we meet the story’s first truly adorable character. Hagrid the groundskeeper of Hogwarts appears in the scene, right as the clock strikes midnight, and just as Harry turns eleven. In one clean sweep, we meet this wonderful man, the Durselys are (finally) put back in their place, and Harry’s metaphorical train ride to destiny finally begins it’s unforgettable journey from the land of Muggles to a rather fantastic and make-believe University for talented youngsters. Chapter five is where the fun and excitement starts to build. We are given a glimpse of an alternative London which possesses a giant underground bank (Gringott’s) which is staffed and guarded by goblins, a shop which sells nothing but wands (they choose their owner, you know), text books and of course, the mandatory uniform for witches and wizards in waiting. There is hardly a chapter that goes by that fails to scream, ’GENIUS LIVES HERE!'. Of course Hogwarts itself is brilliant (the place is just about infinite in an infinite number of ways) but even getting there is only possible for those with the ability to perform the unmentionable. It comes down to faith, you see, and if you don’t have that at the start, you might as well give up and go home right away. I wont reveal the magic here as the fun is in the reading. Chapter five gave the reader the book’s first true glimpse of childhood evil - school yard bullying - but this is a fleeting glimpse only, and may well be soon forgotten. We meet the legendary Hermoine Grainger and Ronald Weasley in chapter six, and our worlds (and lives) will never be the same again. And so the story goes on. Fun and laughter, tears and terror are yours for the taking. We make friends, we make enemies, we learn to fly and we learn what the heck a NIMBUS 3000 is (I want one!!!) And most importantly, we learn all about the wonder that is Quidditch. The Harry Potter books rule. HPATPS really is incredible. The writing may not win any awards in its own right (it would have by now, if it was going to) but the important thing to take away from these books is the fun and excitement you come across, and the magic (there’s that word again) of each person’s individual interpretation of the words on the page. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry really does exist, you know. You just gotta know where to find it, and how to get there. It all comes down to faith. And I have plenty.

*Spoilers*
Holy crap I enjoyed that book more than I enjoy wasting my life playing videogames and never living up to any goals I set for myself. My favorite part was when Dumbledore waited to the last minute to conveniently give Gryffindor a shit load of points as the ultimate and obvious "fuck you" to Slytherin. I mean holy shit I've never heard of anyone more biased. Well, maybe Pauline Hanson, but I'm not gonna bring politics into this. Anyway awesome book, keep up the great moves. Proud of you
