( Read Epub ) À Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Ç Funny, imaginative, magical Rowling has woken up a whole generation to reading In the s, thirty something book lovers will know each other by smug references to Diagon Alley and Quidditch The TimesWhen a letter arrives for unhappy but ordinary Harry Potter, a decade old secret is revealed to him His parents were wizards, killed by a Dark Lord s curse when Harry was just a baby, and which he somehow survived Escaping from his unbearable Muggle guardians to Hogwarts, a wizarding school brimming with ghosts and enchantments, Harry stumbles into a sinister adventure when he finds a three headed dog guarding a room on the third floor Then he hears of a missing stone with astonishing powers which could be valuable, dangerous, or both This is a terrific book Sunday Telegraph Has all the makings of a classic Rowling uses classic narrative devices with flair and originality and delivers a complex and demanding plot in the form of a hugely entertaining thriller Scotsman And you thought wizardry was for children Harry Potter will make you think again He casts his spells on grown ups too James Naughtie Full of surprises and jokes comparisons with Dahl are, this time, justified Sunday Times Why the heck did I not read Harry Potter before nowits flipping magical literally Stuck at home Got some time on your hands Want to

time and which ones aren t Here s the Written Review Can you hear me screaming As expected, the illustrations brought this book to a whole new level I legitimately want to buy another copy, solely to take it apart and frame it.Each page is just bursting with new life Honestly, how could you not love such beautiful images Hogwarts, Hogwarts Hoggy Hoggy warty warts.I think at this point, everyone and their great great grandmother has heard of this book.Harry Potter, orphaned before he was one, was sent to live with his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon He was always a bit of an odd child much to his family s dismay.Things just happened around him Like when he was running from bullies and jumped to the school roof Or when he got an atrocious haircut courtesy of Aunt Petunia and all of his hair grew back in a single night.On his eleventh birthday, a letter comes to him and a whole new world opens in front of his eyes.In short I LOVED THIS ONE I thought I loved the Harry Potter books when I first read them, but when I bought the illustrated versionwell, that love instantly quadrupled.The fully illustrated Philosopher s Stone still has all the wonder and amazement as the boy turned wizard embarks on a harrowing 7 book adventure and the illustrations bring a whole new dimension.Seriously, I can t emphasize enough how much I love this book Just look at these images they re magnificent Ahh Just look at sad, tiny Harry Don t worry kid life will get better Not only are these full color, high quality images but there are so many of them.Often, illustrated books have a picture here or there but not HP There s pages and pages of pictures like this and often the pages without full sized images will have a small illustrations here and there between the large ones.Words cannot express how highly I recommend this one If you haven t read HP recentlyI strongly urge you to check out this book.YouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat miranda.reads I m going to keep this brief since there

read this series is because I just couldn t imagine myself enjoying reading about an eleven year old boy and his adventures at a school of wizardry I thought it would be too juvenile for my taste I was wrong, of course.I can honestly say that I loved every minute of this It s a spectacular little romp with funny, courageous, and endearing characters that you can t help but love.It has talking chess pieces, singing hats, a giant three headed dog named Fluffy, a hilarious giant with a dragon fetish, a master wizard that s just a little bit crazy, mail carrier owls, goblins running a bank, unicorns, centaurs , trollsand probably muchthat I m forgetting And then there s the lead characters Hermione, the young scholar who starts out prim and up tight but soon becomes a true friend Ron, the boy who has little money but who has an abundance of family and loyalty to his friends to make up for it and then there s Harry, the boy who starts out sleeping in a closet and ends up being a hero Harry is kind to those that deserve it, fearless when it counts the most, and wonderfully intelligent What s not to love In regards to the ending view spoiler I feel silly saying this about a middle grade novel, but I didn t suspect Quirrell a bit If there were hints that he was the true culprit and not Snape, I obviously missed them hide spoiler FAVORITE QUOTEBut from that moment on, Hermione Granger became their friend There are some things you can t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve foot mountain troll is one of them Now, if you ll excuse me, I m off to start Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets My reviews of other titles in this series Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets My original review was a comparison of sorts between Harry Potter and Twilight However, this is stupid as the two are incomparable Honestly, its not even worth discussing Its not just that Twilight doesn t come close, it is the fact that Harry Potter transcends other similar works Its peerless To quote Samuel L Jackson in Pulp Fiction Itain t the same fuckin ballpark, it ain t the same league, it ain t even the same fuckin sport There was a day when I thought I needed to defend Harr My original review was a comparison of sorts between Harry Potter and Twilight However, this is stupid as the two are incomparable Honestly, its not even worth discussing Its not just that Twilight doesn t come close, it is the fact that Harry Potter transcends other similar works Its peerless To quote Samuel L Jackson in Pulp Fiction Itain t the same fuckin ballpark, it ain t the same league, it ain t even the same fuckin sport There was a day when I thought I needed to defend Harry Potter, in the midst of the now dead Twilight craze, and you can see that below in what was my original review It is a testament to the power of this series, that while various other franchises Twilight, Hunger Games have surged into popularity and then faded, Harry Potter remains unwaveringly strong after nineteen years It is clear readers hold just as much admiration for these books as they always have Time has not dimmed that.I will, one day, write an essay about what these books mean to me Eternal, this is the one that started it all Original review circa 2010 A note in regard to the on going Potter vs Twilight debate Go ahed, tell me Twilight is better Tell me that James is scarier than Voldemort, That the Cullens are a better family than the Weasly s That Edward is cooler than Harry, and Bella is smarter than Hermione Tell me that Stephenie Meyer istalented than J.K Rowling Go ahead, I dare you Those who think the topic of Harry Potter or Twilight is worth debating and arguing over, are utterly stupid Quite frankly this book is amazing
