Harry Potter And The Philosopher'S Stone (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.359

Harry is a quiet eleven year old boy living a pathetic life at his aunt and uncle’s house. His uncle and aunt do everything in their power to be unpleasant to him, and it doesn’t help that they have a bully for a son whose mission in life seems to be annoying little Harry to no end.

They live in a regular grey street, Privet Drive, surrounded by grey people with equally grey dispositions. Nothing unusual ever occurs at Privet DriveUntil one day, a group of owls take over. Swarms of owls show up everywhere around Privet Drive and strange things begin to occur. When Uncle Vernon, in order to escape the insanity surrounding them, takes them to an island, he thinks that his troubles and the secrets that he has been keeping won’t follow him there.

His expectations are quite off the mark, though.

In the middle of the night, a giant man who goes by the name of Hagrid bursts through their door, and reveals to Harry things so extraordinary that he cannot quite believe his ears.

Harry James Potter, the son of Lily and James Potter, has been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. To his surprise, Harry realizes that he is the most famous wizard alive.

Harry soon befriends two students he meets on the train, Ron and Hermione. They prove to be his best friends as he embarks on a journey of dangerous magical adventures. Harry learns about his dark nemesis, Lord Voldemort, and the history they share, and comes to realize that there is a lot of responsibility on his shoulders. As he uncovers secrets about his life and the wizarding world at large, he also uncovers the greatest of them all: the secret of the philosopher’s stone.

What will the fabled philosopher's stone come to mean in the course of the story? How will Harry fare as he takes on bigger and much more powerful forces?

Brilliant!!.... needs no introduction.

it is not a childrens book... if that is what you thought it to be. i read it a few years back, and not beleiving the hype about it bought the cheapish edition from the roadway stall on one of my tours. And boy!! was I suprised! It was simply un-put-downable. I went ahead, and read the first 3 sequels in that tour itself. Thereafter i awaited eagerly to get the next one and the next one after that.
It is terribliy unfortunate that i have the non-original prints with me. And the ones i have are pathetic as far as print quality is concerned... so bad that i dare not include it in my collectio...

To set things right i just ordered the orginal from flipkart. I will reread it and thereafter add it to my prized collection.
I cannot recomment it more highly. I think the older you are the better you find it to be...
Enjoy being a kid once again!!

A great book (Best book for first time novel readers)

This is the first novel in the Harry Potter series written by JK Rowling. Harry Potter series has a third person narration of this fiction.
The plot of this novel revolves around a young boy named Harry Potter who is born into a family of magical wizards. Due to some very terrible circumstances during his birth, he spends his first few years of his childhood in his aunt Petunia's house. Then, certain events happen around him, that he himself isn't able to explain. The boy spends a miserable life at his aunt's house while being bullied by his fat cousin Dudley, until he joins Hogw...

This is the first novel in the Harry Potter series written by JK Rowling. Harry Potter series has a third person narration of this fiction.
The plot of this novel revolves around a young boy named Harry Potter who is born into a family of magical wizards. Due to some very terrible circumstances during his birth, he spends his first few years of his childhood in his aunt Petunia's house. Then, certain events happen around him, that he himself isn't able to explain. The boy spends a miserable life at his aunt's house while being bullied by his fat cousin Dudley, until he joins Hogwarts (the school of Witchcraft and Wizardry). Hagrid, a big beefy man from Hogwarts, appears in front of Harry, his Uncle and Aunt, to give Harry an invitation to join Hogwarts and dares his uncle and Aunt to not stop him from joining Hogwarts. Hagrid tells Harry about his past and why he ended up at his aunt's house. He makes Harry understand why there were certain things that happened around his life that he wasn't able to explain before and why he is being invited to join Hogwarts. He also introduces him into the world of magic, the market of magic folks, their banks, the ministry of the magic folks, etc. . . . Looking at all this, Harry gets very excited about learning magic in Hogwarts. Even though his uncle and aunt show lot of hesitance towards Harry joining Hogwarts, fearing Hagrid they allow him to do so. To his surprise he finds out that he is already very famous in the school. Strangely he knows many things about magic before even learning about it. He becomes a part of the house Quidditch team (Quidditch is a sport played in Hogwarts), and realises the joy of being a team player, while earning points for the team. He makes many good friends here, who stand by him in very difficult times. He earns a lot of praise from his teachers and friends for doing great things at school, while exhibiting several good qualities like hardwork, leadership, friendship, courage and humility.
The story deep dives into the world of magic while being very simple and enabling the reader to imagine the story as it is narrated. The reader is able to find joy in the immaculate details of the surroundings in the story, along with humour and suspense throughout. The author makes a great effort to stress the importance of many simple moral values like hardwork, friendship and bravery, through the happenings of Harry Potter's life.
In my opinion, this book is a great one for first time novel readers, as the language is very simple and the narration is extremely lucid throughout, while introducing few rarely used words in everyday conversation and some common words used in Magic. It's also good for professional novel readers, as the story is very interesting with bits and pieces of logical reasoning and mind-boggling magic tricks to keep you engaged.
Some of the ideas from the book that I specifically liked are as follows:
a) It's impossible to become friends with someone, unless you and your friends are together in some tough situation.
b) It's impossible to do something until you have the fear of the thing itself.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I would like to read successive novels in this series.

Wonderful!

SO, the first time I picked up Harry potter series was when a friend of mine told me to not just judge it by movies, and Damn she was right.

Now, the first time you pick up, when you reach halfway through the book, the very thought that there are total of 7 wonderful books by the lovely J K Rowling, you are amazed and then begins your journey of HARRY POTTER and his 7 school years, in which you experience every possible (well, lets just say that) adventure and emotion that you very less likely get close to in real life.

The book is wonderful, much more detailed that the movies, and that makes you think how on earth did Rowling imagined such a intriguing story and its characters.

Everyone, please just pick up the book and start reading, you next 7 orders from flipkart will definitely be the harry potter books. :)

Enjoy!

A Must Have Series

Well What to say, It's HARRY POTTER. Rain completely ruined my original copy bought back in 2000, but alas could do nothing but order a new one.

The only draw back about this new book is. Why did they have to Spoil the Cover and make it so ugly. The original print edition had such a beautiful co...
