SummaryAdd a Summary
In this book a boy named Harry parents died by a wizard named Voldermrt and he lived.He became famous but he had to lived with his uncle and aunt who always hate him. Now he was at the age of eleven when he is going to wizard school.
Harry Potter goes to Hogwarts where he finds his friends. He "discovers" that Severus Snape wants to help the Dark Lord, Voldemort, get The Philisoper's Stone, thus the title. Then....he decides to do what no one will have the courage to even dare think about.
Before the start of the novel, Voldemort, considered the most evil and powerful dark wizard in history, killed Harry's parents but mysteriously vanished after trying to kill the infant Harry. While the wizarding world was celebrating Voldemort's downfall, Professor Dumbledore, Professor McGonagall and Rubeus Hagrid placed the one year-old orphan in the care of his Muggle (non-wizard) uncle and aunt: Vernon and Petunia Dursley. For ten years, they and their son Dudley neglected, tormented and abused Harry. Shortly before Harry's eleventh birthday, a series of letters addressed to Harry arrive, but Vernon destroys them before Harry can read them. To get away from the letters, Vernon takes the family to a small island. As they are settling in, Hagrid bursts through the door to tell Harry what the Dursleys have kept him from finding out: Harry is a wizard and has been accepted at Hogwarts. Hagrid takes Harry to Diagon Alley, a magically-concealed shopping precinct in London, where Harry is bewildered to discover how famous he is among wizards as "the boy who lived". He also finds that he is quite wealthy, since a bequest from his parents has remained on deposit at Gringotts Wizarding Bank. Guided by Hagrid, he buys the books and equipment he needs for Hogwarts. At the wand shop, he finds that the wand that suits him best is the twin of Voldemort's; both wands contain feathers from the same phoenix

Hermione: i took this out for a bit of light reading (slams huge book on table) Ron: this is light?
Don't worry Ginny we'll send loads of owls... Yeah we'll send a hogwarts toilet seat!!!
"I'm going to bed before either of you come up with another idea to get us killed, or worse; expelled." -Hermione to Harry and Ron

Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right, and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort.
Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.
What’s comin’ will come and we’ll meet it when it does.
You sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.
The mind is not a book, to be opened at will and examined at leisure. Thoughts are not etched on the inside of skulls, to be perused by an invader. The mind is a complex and many-layered thing.
