Harry Potter

and the Philosopher's Stone

The Book

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was written by J.K. Rowling and is the first one of the famous Harry Potter's book series. The book tells the story of Harry Potter, a wizard that was raised by the Dursley's since his parents were murdered by Voldemort, a wizard from the dark side. On his 11th birthday, an strange man, called Hagrid, appears in his house and tells Harry his true story. Right after, Harry went, with Hagrid, to the "finest school of witchcraft and wizardry in the world". Harry didn't knew it, but in the magical world of the wizards, he was quite famous because of his strange story with Voldemort. In Hogwarts, Harry made new friends, Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger. In the end of the book, after lots of magical adventures, Harry confronts Voldemort and, as usual, the "good side" wins.

The Movie

The Harry Potter's book series originated the Harry Potter's movies series. The only difference is that, instead of 7 movies, like the books, there are 8 movies, the last one was divided in 2 parts. In my opinion, the movie is really well done, it shows almost everything of the book and the magical effects are so real!
