Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone sprung from the mind of J.K. (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling while on a train to London from Manchester back in 1990. The book is deemed to be an English fantasy novel for children, but are actually about deep allegories pertaining to human condition. It came from Rowling that her book is really focused on imagination and that wizardry in the book is only a figure of speech for a person to develop his or her own full potential.
On one side, it is a thriller novel that revolves around crime that is committed by a brave group of students. Although, on a deeper sense, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone demonstrates the difficulties and excitement of growing up. The book structures around every child’s journey of becoming their own selves, gaining respect from friends, discovering the true meaning of loyalty, and learning to believe in something bigger.
The transition of Harry Potter from an ostracized orphan into someone famous, and being recognized as a hero is a representation of every child’s goal in life. The most significant discovery is the unique quality he has that symbolizes the dream of many both children and adults who love to imagine.
You should listen to this audiobook because even if it has been more than a decade since it was written, it is an entertaining book to listen to. If Rowling went to Hogwarts, she would receive an award for coming with such a beautiful piece. The story is compelling, exciting, gripping, and has a solid plot that will leave you wanting to know what will happen next.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is what you should be listening to if you want to take your imagine to a whole new level.
