For both countries, the book has received several awards. It hit the best-selling fictional novel in 1999, and also stayed on the list in 2000.

In the area of book publications the succeeding Harry Potter series has hit similar heights.

Book Review:

The story plot:
The story revolves around a boy called Harry Potter, whose life begins with the murder of his parents and his strange escape from an attempt to murder him. He started to grow up in his aunt's family, who were so mean to him and so, he was never allowed to question anything about his parents too. At the age of eleven, he got to know about himself as a wizard and got admitted in a wizard school. The story took its fantasy and serious part from there. Harry Potter and his friends got clues about something precious, hidden inside the school campus, which was protected with several firewalls, still had the chance of falling into the hands of negative people. So, Harry Potter and friends risk their lives to safeguard it. What is the precious thing? Who tries to snatch it from a safe place? How does Harry Potter save it from the hands of the wrong people? These are the main part of the story.

Important Characters:

Harry Potter: The hero of the story, who was considered as powerful and became famous at the age of one itself, but he got to know about himself as a wizard at the age of eleven only. He was the son of a famous wizard couple James Potter and Lilly Potter, who was murdered by Voldemort.

Voldemort The Villain of the story. A powerful wizard wished to be the only leader of the wizard community and expertise in dark magic. He killed those who stood against him. This threatened the whole wizard world, they even scared to tell his name. So, he was often known as " You Know Who". He killed Harry's parents too. He lost much of his powers when he attempted to kill Harry, who was only one year old then. The only person, not afraid of Voldemort was Albus Dumbledore.

Albus Dumbledore: The Principal of Hogwarts Wizard School. A powerful person in the story, who guided and saved Harry whenever he was in a dilemma or in danger.

Harry's friends: Harry's best friends at Hogwarts school are Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, who stood by his side in all his ups and downs. They were brilliant enough in solving mysteries.

Professors: Hogwarts school's Professor McGonagall, Professor Snape, Professor Quirrell and Professor Filch also played a vital role in the story.

Hagrid: There is a separate chapter for Rubeus Hagrid in this book. He was a key keeper at Hogwarts, but his character played an important role in carrying forward the story. Whenever Harry and friends stuck up in solving the mystery, Hagrid gave the hint to go ahead, even without his knowledge.

Dursley family: The story began and ended with the names of Dursleys, Though they were not related to Hogwarts, they were closely related to Harry Potter and his early life.


For children and adults who are interested in a fantasy story, I recommend this book, it could surely satisfy their wish. The book was later taken as a moving picture and was not meant to adapt the film for any modification because it has more detail in its text itself. So, without any doubt anyone who reads the book can imagine the entire scene. A book that can draw readers of any kind, and keep them reading until the end.
