Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. J.K. Rowling Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms ; a lion, an Here are the characters of the book. I'm so glad I'm reading books all at once for the first time, and getting the books back in my head and the movies out; I love the movies but I'm even more. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone or Philosopher's stone is the 1st book of Harry Potter Series. It is a famous novel written by J. k Rowling.
He grew up in a fairly large pure-blood family as the sixth born of seven children.
Although his family is quite poor, they still live comfortably and happily. His loyalty and bravery in the face of a game of Wizards Chess plays a vital part in finding the Philosopher's Stone.
Hermione Granger , the daughter of an all-Muggle family, is a bossy girl who has apparently memorised most of the textbooks before the start of term. Rowling described Hermione as a "very logical, upright and good" character  with "a lot of insecurity and a great fear of failure beneath her swottiness".
She has bushy brown hair and rather large front teeth. Neville Longbottom is a plump, diffident boy, so forgetful that his grandmother gives him a Remembrall , although he cannot remember why. Neville's magical abilities are weak and appeared just in time to save his life when he was eight.
Despite his timidity, Neville will fight anyone after some encouragement or if he thinks it is right and important. Rubeus Hagrid , a half-giant nearly 12 feet 3. Hagrid is fiercely loyal to Dumbledore and quickly becomes a close friend of Harry, Ron and, later, Hermione, but his carelessness makes him unreliable. Professor Albus Dumbledore , a tall, thin man who wears half-moon spectacles and has silver hair and a beard that tucks into his belt, is the headmaster of Hogwarts, and thought to be the only wizard Voldemort fears.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
Dumbledore, while renowned for his achievements in magic, shrugs off praise, though he is aware of his own brilliance. Rowling described him as the "epitome of goodness". She is Deputy Headmistress, and Head of Gryffindor House and, according to the author, "under that gruff exterior" is "a bit of an old softy".
As a muggle , she regards her magical sister as a freak and tries to pretend that she never existed. Vernon Dursley , the husband of Petunia Dursley, is a heavily built man whose irascible bluster covers a narrow mind and a fear of anything unusual.
Dudley Dursley is an overweight, spoiled bully and Harry's cousin. Draco Malfoy is a slim, pale boy who speaks in a bored drawl. His parents had supported Voldemort, but changed sides after the dark wizard's disappearance, claiming they had been bewitched. Draco avoids direct confrontations, and tries to get Harry and his friends into trouble. Professor Quirrell is a twitching, stammering and nervous man who teaches Defence Against the Dark Arts.
Reputedly he was a brilliant scholar, but his nerve was shattered by an encounter with vampires. Quirrell wears a turban to conceal the fact that he is voluntarily possessed by Voldemort, whose face appears on the back of Quirrell's head. Professor Severus Snape , who has a hooked nose, sallow complexion and greasy black hair, teaches Potions , but would prefer to teach Defence Against the Dark Arts. Snape praises pupils in Slytherin, his own House but seizes every opportunity to humiliate others, especially Harry.
Several incidents, beginning with the shooting pain in Harry's scar during the start-of-term feast, lead Harry and his friends to think Snape is a follower of Voldemort.
Argus Filch , the school caretaker who knows the school's secret passages better than anyone else except, possibly, the Weasley twins.
His cat, Mrs. Norris, aids his constant hunt for misbehaving pupils. Other members of staff include the dumpy Herbology teacher and Head of Hufflepuff House Professor Sprout , Professor Flitwick , the tiny and excitable Charms teacher, and Head of Ravenclaw House, the soporific History of Magic teacher, Professor Binns , a ghost who does not seem to have noticed his own death; and Madam Hooch , the Quidditch coach, who is strict, but a considerate and methodical teacher.
The poltergeist Peeves wanders around the castle causing trouble wherever he can. Everyone was looking at him. Hagrid was beaming.
Then there was a great scraping of chairs and, next moment, Harry found himself shaking hands with everyone in the Leaky Cauldron.
One wild cart-ride later they stood blinking in the sunlight outside Gringotts. I hate them Gringotts carts. Madam Malkin was a squat, smiling witch dressed all in mauve.
Madam Malkin stood Harry on a stool next to him, slipped a long robe over his head and began to pin it to the right length. They were going even deeper now and gathering speed. The air became colder and colder as they hurtled round tight corners.
They went rattling over an underground ravine and Harry leant over the side to try and see what was down at the dark bottom but Hagrid groaned and pulled him back by the scruff of his neck. Vault seven hundred and thirteen had no keyhole. He stroked the door gently with one of his long fingers and it simply melted away. Something really extraordinary had to be inside this top-security vault, Harry was sure, and he leant forward eagerly, expecting to see fabulous jewels at the very least — but at first he thought it was empty.
Then he noticed a grubby little package wrapped up in brown paper lying on the floor.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
Hagrid picked it up and tucked it deep inside his coat. Harry longed to know what it was, but knew better than to ask. It was a relief to be away from the smell of the troll, quite apart from anything else. They had reached the portrait of the Fat Lady. The common room was packed and noisy. Everyone was eating the food that had been sent up.
Hermione, however, stood alone by the door, waiting for them. There was a very embarrassed pause. But from that moment on, Hermione Granger became their friend. Harry was speechless. Hermione was the last person to do anything against the rules, and here she was, pretending she had, to get them out of trouble. It was as if Snape had started handing out sweets.
Students are finishing the feast in their houses. Professor McGonagall turned to Harry and Ron.
You each win Gryffindor five points. Professor Dumbledore will be informed of this. You may go.

It was really lucky that Harry now had Hermione as a friend. She had also lent him Quidditch Through the Ages, which turned out to be a very interesting read. Hermione, however, stood alone by the door, waiting for them. There was a very embarrassed pause.

Harry learnt that there were seven hundred ways of committing a Quidditch foul and that all of them had happened s they entered November, the weather turned very cold. The mountains around the school became icy grey and the lake like chilled steel. Every morning the ground was covered in frost. Hagrid could be seen from the upstairs windows, defrosting broomsticks on the Quidditch pitch, bundled up in a long moleskin overcoat, rabbit-fur gloves and enormous beaverskin boots.
The Quidditch season had begun. Hermione had become a bit more relaxed about breaking rules since Harry and Ron had saved her from the mountain troll and she was much nicer for it. They were standing with their backs to it, getting warm, when Snape crossed the yard. Harry noticed at once that Snape was limping. He limped over. Harry showed him.
Five points from Gryffindor. Harry, Ron and Hermione sat together next to a window. Harry felt restless.
He wanted Quidditch Through the Ages back, to take his mind off his nerves about tomorrow. Why should he be afraid of Snape? Getting up, he told Ron and Hermione he was going to ask Snape if he could have it.Everyone was eating the food that had been sent up. Mrs Dursley was thin and blonde and had nearly twice the usual amount of neck, which came in very useful as she spent so much of her time craning over garden fences, spying on the neighbours.
Rejoice, for You-Know-Who has gone at last! Several incidents, beginning with the shooting pain in Harry's scar during the start-of-term feast, lead Harry and his friends to think Snape is a follower of Voldemort. Mrs Potter was Mrs Dursleys sister, but they hadnt met for several years; in fact, Mrs Dursley pretended she didnt have a sister, because her sister and her good-for-nothing husband were as unDursleyish as it was possible to be. Listening to Harry get chewed out by potions master Professor Snape is augmented by the subtle sounds of bubbling solutions.
Could all this have anything to do with the Potters? Was he imagining things? His life changes on the day of his eleventh birthday when he receives a letter of acceptance into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry , delivered by a half-giant named Rubeus Hagrid after previous letters had been destroyed by Harry's Uncle Vernon and his Aunt Petunia.
