Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is a fantasy novel written by British author J. K. Rowling. The first novel in the Harry Potter series and Rowling’s debut novel, it follows Harry Potter, a young wizard who discovers his magical heritage on his eleventh birthday, when he...

Chapter seventeen. The Man with Two Faces

It was Quirrell. ‘You!’ gasped Harry. Quirrell smiled. His face wasn’t twitching at all. ‘Me,’ he said calmly, ‘I wondered whether I’d be meeting you here, Potter.’ ‘But I thought – Snape –’ ‘Severus?’ Quirrell laughed and it wasn’t his usual quivering treble, either,...

Chapter sixteen. Through the Trapdoor

In years to come, Harry would never quite remember how he had managed to get through his exams when he half expected Voldemort to come bursting through the door at any moment. Yet the days crept by and there could be no doubt that Fluffy was still alive and well behind the locked door. It […]

Chapter fifteen. The Forbidden Forest

Things couldn’t have been worse. Filch took them down to Professor McGonagall’s study on the first floor, where they sat and waited without saying a word to each other. Hermione was trembling. Excuses, alibis and wild cover-up stories chased each other around Harry’s brain, each more feeble...

Chapter fourtenn. Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback

Quirrell, however, must have been braver than they’d thought. In the weeks that followed he did seem to be getting paler and thin-ner, but it didn’t look as though he’d cracked yet. Every time they passed the third-floor corridor, Harry, Ron and Hermione would press their ears to the door to...

Chapter Thirteen. Nicolas Flamel

Dumbledore had convinced Harry not to go looking for the Mirror of Erised again and for the rest of the Christmas holidays the Invisibility Cloak stayed folded at the bottom of his trunk. Harry wished he could forget what he’d seen in the Mirror as easily, but he couldn’t. He started having...

Chapter twelve. The Mirror of Erised

Christmas was coming. One morning in mid-December, Hogwarts woke to find itself covered in several feet of snow. The lake froze solid and the Weasley twins were punished for bewitching several snowballs so that they followed Quirrell around, bouncing off the back of his turban. The few owls that...

Chapter eleven. Quidditch

As they entered November, the weather turned very cold. The mountains around the school became icy grey and the lake like chilled steel. Every morning the ground was covered in frost. Hagrid could be seen from the upstairs windows, defrosting broomsticks on the Quidditch pitch, bundled up in a long...

Chapter ten. Hallowe’en

Malfoy couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw that Harry and Ron were still at Hogwarts next day, looking tired but perfectly cheer-ful. Indeed, by next morning Harry and Ron thought that meeting the three-headed dog had been an excellent adventure and they were quite keen to have another one. In...

Chapter nine. The Midnight Duel

Harry had never believed he would meet a boy he hated more than Dudley, but that was before he met Draco Malfoy. Still, first-year Gryffindors only had Potions with the Slytherins, so they didn’t have to put up with Malfoy much. Or at least, they didn’t until they spotted a notice pinned up in...
