Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

(10 customer reviews)

Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter ‘H’.

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry’s eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

Having now become classics of our time, the Harry Potter ebooks never fail to bring comfort and escapism to readers of all ages. With its message of hope, belonging and the enduring power of truth and love, the story of the Boy Who Lived continues to delight generations of new readers.

From the Publisher

Newt Scamander and his Beasts

Newt Scamander

Newt Scamander is a Magizoologist who has been traveling the world to find and document magical creatures, hoping to educate the wizarding world about why they are important and need to be protected. In his travels, he has rescued a wide variety of beasts, great and small, which he keeps in a case that magically provides more than enough room for the menagerie he cares for and protects. Newt is an outsider, a bit awkward, and more comfortable with creatures than his fellow wizards and witches. Hailing from England, he was once a student at Hogwarts but was expelled for endangering human life with a beast. Yet there was one professor who fought for him, a certain Albus Dumbledore. No one could have imagined then that Newt would someday write one of Hogwarts’ most important textbooks: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Niffler

The mischievous Niffler is small, furry and black with a long, rounded snout, making it look like a cross between a mole and a duck-billed platypus. With an irrepressible predilection for anything glittery, this burrowing but remarkably fast and agile little beast will snatch or steal whatever shiny object catches its eye. The Niffler stores its treasures in the pouch on its belly, which holds considerably more than seems possible. Though gentle and even affectionate, the Niffler can be quite destructive in its pursuit of sparkly things, so, word to the wise: they do not make good house pets.

Bowtruckle

The sprig-like Bowtruckle can be immensely difficult to spot in a natural environment as it is not only very small but also can easily blend into any foliage. It is a maximum of eight inches in height and appears to be made out of a tree stem with roots, tiny leafy _branches and two brown eyes. Newt has at least six of these little beasts—named Pickett, Titus, Finn, Poppy, Marlow and Tom—though he can’t help but play favorites with Pickett, whom he keeps safe in his breast pocket. The Bowtruckle, which eats only insects, is a peaceable and intensely shy creature.

Thunderbird

The Thunderbird is a large, regal avian creature native to the arid climate of Arizona. Its head is similar to that of an eagle or, in the wizarding world, a Hippogriff. Its multiple powerful wings shimmer with cloud- and sun-like patterns and their flapping can create storms. Thunderbirds can also sense danger. After rescuing a Thunderbird from traffickers in Egypt, Newt named him Frank and promised to return him to his natural habitat in Arizona. Sadly, one of Frank’s legs bears the wounds of having been chained, but his gratitude to Newt for having rescued him is evident.

10 thoughts on “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

  1. I am so glad I read this book. I would definitely have missed something if I hadn’t picked this up. Such a gem of a book. The writing is so enormously beautiful. You literally imagine all the vivid details. The writing is so lucid and entertaining that you cant stop yourself from reading the book in one go. (But I didnt..) I think I read it in five or six sittings deliberately so I couldn’t get over enjoying myself. Such a page turner and such a warm hearted story.You root for Harry throughout. You feel for the characters. A well executed plot. I can go on raving about this book but let me stop and yes, I will be buying the second part soon.

  2. A fascinating novel of magic. I love the experience with harry potter, Ron Wesley and Hermione Granger. It has got a nice front cover also. Thank you Amazon, for packing it so carefully and for handling it with care.

  3. The book quality is very good, even the pages are in a good condition, the name ‘Harry Potter and The philosopher’s stone’ is named in golden shine, surrounded by golden shiny stars and the cover illustration of the book is nice, Moreover, there are no stains, no fading of the golden shine of the cover text, the pages were not torn neither folded. The book was delivered nicely. But Amazon should start giving bookmarks also, which is important accessory for readers. The book is really interesting, and I was really impressed by the book quality… I have done reading it, it is so nice book for most of the ages. Still it’s been almost a month, and it is still looking beautiful.

  4. HARRY POTTER. WHAT CAN BE MORE WONDERFUL THAN THIS WHOLE SERIES…. J.K ROWLING IS ONE OF THE MOST WELL KNOWN AUTHORS. THIS SERIES OF BOOKS WRITTEN BY HER MADE ME A BOOKWORM. I DID NOT WANT TO DO ANYTHING ELSE OTHER THAN READ AFTER READING THE FIRST BOOK . I HAVE ALREADY READ THIS SERIES OF BOOKS AND AFTER READING THEM I FELT LIKE READING IT AGAIN SO THIS IS THE SECOND TIME . BEING A POTTERHEAD PEOPLE IN SCHOOL ALSO CALL ME POTTER. THIS SERIES OF BOOKS IS FOR ALL AGES AND EVERYONE IS FREE TO READ IT.THIS MYSTERY,THIRLLER AND COMEDY MAKES ME WANNA ACTUALLY BE IN THE PLACE OF HARRY AND IMAGINE WHAT I WOULD DO. IT ALSO BUILDS UP MY CONFIDENCE TO FACE AND CONQUER DIFFICULTIES IN MY LIFE. IT ALSO TEACHES ME THAT HARDWORK IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS . ANVEE SONTAKKE ….

  5. There’s nothing more perfect u can ask for by JK Rowling. Its just magnificent.And thanks for the bookmarks.Fully satisfied with the delivery and the product.

Great for people of all ages.Once you start reading, it will be extremely difficult to keep it aside.A magnificent, spellbinding and fantastic book.The kind of book that every one must read to amuse oneself.All in all it is a wonderful and great book!

  7. I am pushing 30’s but I still love Harry potter like I did when I was a teenager and today I gave it as a gift to a teenager who is new to the book world. The books arrived in a perfect condition, timely delivery, well packed and along with a book mark. None of pages are missing and the paper quality is too good no speck of yellow is seen even the print is good. The conversation carried out between Ron Hermione and Harry through letters are printed in different fonts and the rest in different which gives the whole book an interesting look. The new readers can feel the conversation actually happening in their mind like a play on radio.

  8. Maximum childishness, minimum violence and absolutely awesome. The best in the series. Buy thisbook from u-Read Shop. People who got secondhand books may have bought USED. Go for it.

  9. If you’re a Potterhead, you are definitely going to fall in love with this book! And it would definitely look beautiful on your shelf!

  10. Having finished the UK version years ago, and to quench the desire to start all over again led me to buy this edition. Nominal changes in otherwise known story makes the journey a bit more interesting. Since the content of the book is already known to many, I am strictly sticking to the condition and quality of the book.The book was delivered to me in excellent condition, this version is a bit bigger and thicker than the Bloomsbury UK edition, and due to increased real estate of the book, contents of the pages seem a bit less congested. If you’re someone who loves a bit large and thick book in their hands go for the US edition instead of the UK one. Chapters too start with a small cartoon which is a nice touch. As can be noticed in the pictures provided pages are a bit bright than UK one but truth be told might be because of the fact that the UK edition is with me for quite some time.Highly recommended….
