Harry Potter is an ordinary boy who lives in a cupboard under the stairs at his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon's house, which he thinks is normal for someone like him whose parents have been killed in a 'car crash'. He is bullied by them and his fat, spoilt cousin Dudley, and lives a very unremarkable life with only the odd hiccup (like his hair growing back overnight!) to cause him much to think about. That is until an owl turns up with a letter addressed to Harry and all hell breaks loose! He is literally rescued by a world where nothing is as it seems and magic lessons are the order of the day. Read and find out how Harry discovers his true heritage at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, the reason behind his parents mysterious death, who is out to kill him, and how he uncovers the most amazing secret of all time, the fabled Philosopher's Stone! All this and muggles too. Now, what are they??

I'm not much of a reader (in fact, I barely read at all) but this book is brilliant and even better than the films, which are fantastic.

I bought the adult version as I wasn't sure if the original would be a bit childish, however I hoped that the adult version wouldn't be too hard to follow, but thankfully it wasn't. If anyone out there isn't sure whether the adult version will be too hard to understand, boring (etc...) then I can tell you, it's not at all- and that's coming from me.

Definite 5 stars in my opinion, and that's coming from someone who generally doesn't enjoy reading.

 Getting into it.

Im not a big Harry Potter film fan but a girl at work said the books were much better so I gave this a try.
This is infact much better than the film (which most books are) so im looking forward to buying and reading the next in the series.
