3 blog posts every week: Wednesdays and Fridays at 18:10 and Sundays at 15:30
This was meant to be posted about a week ago, and I've forgot - plus, I hadn't read the whole book.
The book I'm going to talk about is the first ever Harry Potter book - The Philosopher's Stone. This book was released 20 years ago, and I have the special edition.
Even though I'm in Slytherin - I know, I know - I've brought (as you can see) the Gryffindor edition.
I've brought it from Asda for £4.
If you've seen the movie, and haven't read the book, you need to check the book out. All the way through, I was just imagining what would happen in the film - as I haven't seen the movie.
So, without further ado, let's start the review.
The book starts when Hagrid has a boy, in the blankets. He then meets with Professor Dumbledore and Professor McGonagall.
The boy goes by the name of Harry Potter, the son of Lily and James Potter. Harry was told that his parents died in a car crash, which was a lie.
Harry is also known as The Boy Who Lived. This comes in after his parents died. His parents tried to protect him from an evil creature, who goes by the name of Voldemort, but in Wizards' World, his name isn't mentioned. Both Lily and James died, while Harry didn't - which is why he goes by the name of The Boy Who Lived.
Harry lived with his aunt, Petunia, his uncle, Vernon and his cousin, Dudley.
The Dursleys were considered Muggles, in the Wizards' World. That means that they didn't believe in magic.
Aunt Petunia was related to Lily, Harry's mother. Aunt Petunia didn't like magic, and thought that it was all fake - and so did Vernon.
Harry was living in the cupboard under the stairs, which Dudley ALWAYS jumps, to wake him up. Dudley uses Harry as a punchbag, so he always punches or pushes Harry for no apparent reason.
At one point, Harry got a letter - addressed to him. Uncle Vernon snatched the letter, and didn't give it to Harry.
I'm actually gonna stop there, because I got so into it, and didn't stop. If I actually didn't stop, this would've been the longest blog post of all time - which, i think, it already is.
I hope I gave you an idea of how Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is, and how the plot is set.
I'll see you next week, with another blog post.
