A Summary Of The Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone Audio Book
The first book of the Harry Potter series is the Sorcerer’s Stone and we will be taking a quick look at some of the major plot points in this article. The book starts off introducing the Dursley household which consists of Mr and Mrs. Dursley, their son Dudley and their nephew, Harry Potter. Harry was given to them by Dumbledore when his parents were killed by Voldemort many years ago. Ever since, Harry lived with the Dursleys who treated him quite poorly and he was made to sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. However, as his 11th birthday approaches, the Dursleys start receiving mysterious mails for Harry.
Mr. Dursley is worried about the letters and tries to keep them away from Harry. However, despite his best efforts, more and more keep arriving for Harry. So, in a last effort to keep the letters from Harry, he takes the entire family to a lonely shack on an island on the eve before Harry’s birthday.
However, as the click strikes midnight, a large giant known as Hagrid breaks down the door and enters the shack. He then gives Harry the letter which indicates that Harry has been accepted into the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. Harry learns that he is a wizard and his parents were actually wizards; information that the Dursleys tried to keep from him.
The next day, Hagrid then takes Harry to London in order to get his school supplies as well as to the wizard bank, Gringotts, in order to get money that his parents left for him. Harry then goes to Diagon Alley in order to purchase his magic wand, books, potions and other school supplies.
Then, a month later, Harry goes to the station in order to go to Hogwarts to start his wizard education. There, he makes friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger who are also starting their first year at Hogwarts. When they arrive at the school, they all need to be assigned to different houses according to the sorting hat which places them all in Gryffindor.
Harry is amazed and fascinated by the new world that he has been exposed to but soon discovers that not everyone welcomes his presence. His potion’s professor Snape clearly dislikes him and as well as other students in Slytherin, mainly Draco Malfoy.
The plot then unfolds when Harry discovers a three headed dog which guards a forbidden trap door. Then, there is a break in by a troll in the school which Harry and Ron successfully defeat. Eventually, Harry makes the connection between the break in and the guard dog and learn that it is guarding the Sorcerer’s stone. This sorcerer’s stone provides eternal life and wealth to its owner which is why Voldemort is after it.
Harry eventually meets Voldemort in the forest who tries to kill him but is rescued by a centaur. As a result of learning about Voldemort’s intentions, Harry then decides to obtain the stone before Voldemort gets his hands on it. Eventually, when Harry and the gang go through numerous perils to get the stone, they are confronted by Professor Quirrell whose body is inhabited by Voldemort. They struggle and eventually Harry passes out. On awakening, Harry learns that Dumbledore saved him in the nick of time and that Flamel, decided to destroy the stone. After all the excitement, Harry eventually returns to the Dursley’s for the summer break before the next school term starts.
So, there you have it, a quick summary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s stone.
