It was good. I listened to it as an audiobook and Stephen Fry read well. Although with some pronunciation issues.

The story is the same as the movie (well it would be) and I liked the first movie so suited me fine. Sweet story about children and magic and the first excitements of finding the wizard school.

Are you one for adventure filled with magic? Are you searching for a book out of the ordinary? Something that is a change from the usual world? Then Harry Potter series is the one for you.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (a.k.a Sorcerer's Stone in some regions.) being the first book in the series begins off pretty slow. The first few chapters have hardly any story. At certain times in the book all you feel like doing is skip the chapter and move on to the next one. when I read it I stopp

At the ripe old age of 26, I was skeptical about reading the Harry Potter series; I thought I was much too old for such fantasy stories. Well, was I wrong! I got totally swept up in the magic of the story. It was a great ‘escape read’ and I truly recommend it not only for kids, but for adults who want also want to mentally get away for a while. As I have never read such books before, the story was completely new and original for me. T

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone:

I liked this book mainly because I like the Author. I also liked the language techniques J.K. Rowling used through out it.
My favorite character id Hargrid, well at lest so far. Because I understand his veiw of life and how he is so big on the out side yet he is such a softy!
I read this book because my friend said that I had to. But I am glad that I did because now I can read the whole series and the books are very different to the movies. (I have only see

This book starts with the Dursleys who are Harry Potter's uncle and aunt and their son or Harry's cousin Dudley. It shows how he has to put up with their ill treatment and from being a nobody in the "Muggle" world he is a celebrity for defeating the evil dark lord Voldemort in the magical world.

The description of every character in the book by J. K. Rowling is really nice. Waiting to read the next part !!!

From the moment I picked this book up I was sucked into the world of Harry Potter. For me this was a quick read because I was so into the story.
This book is full of magic and wonder.
The start of the book is slightly slower because we are just finding out about Harry and his world. This book is a great read if you are looking for some adventure

I seen these movies when I was younger so I knew some of the faces and voices. However even if you don't this book is still amazing

Even at 21 years old, this book is still amazing to me, everything from the plot to the characters was interesting from start to finish. J.K. Rowling creates a stunning world that leaves the reader satisfied by the end but wanting more at the same time. Glad she made seven books and not just the one!

I've been reading this as a bedtime story to my children at the moment. They have never been so excited to go to bed and I have never read for such extended periods at their bedtime. My children prefer it to the movie because of some of the added details. I love it for the language, the engaging characters and the humour. I've secretly read ahead to the end.

Let's just say that I'm not the target audience. I found this book a bit simplistic and one dimensional. I didn't find the characters very well drawn and I found I didn't care very much about them. It took me another 10 years to bother reading the sequels and then only because my kids are obsessed by Harry Potter.

After seeing all the movies it was time I read the books and I wasn't disappointed. The book was more detailed than the movie, which is the norm. I found this to be an enjoyable story and I loved all aspects of it, the flow, the characters, the plot, the intrigue, the settings, all were fabulous. Although this is a young adult read I enjoyed it immensely!

I like J.K. Rowling books because they have a lot of emotion in them and they don't lack description. My favorite part of it was when he battled Voldemort and won , but unfortunately harry goes to hospital but he makes it out.

This is a really great book. I've read the whole series twice before and I have watched all the movies. I think that it it is well derserved of all the attention it gets and J.k. Rowling is my second favourite author after Jackuline Wilson.

The narrative style is such that it creates pictures in our mind for ever. liked some symbols like the street lights getting automatically switched on, animals recognizing Harry Potter ....
