Book vs. Movie: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

3 12 2012

Many people for years have thoroughly enjoyed the Harry Potter novels, by J.K.

Rowling. These 7 books have a huge fan base, which all began in her first novel,

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. With the movie first released in 2001,

critics and fans were both eager to see how the movie stacked up to the highly

regarded novel.

On reading the novel and viewing the movie, I thoroughly enjoyed the way in

which David Heyman (producer) and his team presented the novel. The story

line was very similar to that of the book, which in my opinion was a very

positive aspect.

A number of characters in the book were not included in the movies, though.

Characters such as Peeves, Professor Sprout, Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy did not

appear, but were not major characters for the plot development.

I liked most of the casting of the characters, especially Hermione Granger

(played by young actress, Emma Watson). Her clever and snooty nature was

perfectly portrayed by Watson. Daniel Radcliffe for the protagonist, Harry

Potter, did surprise me as I had my own personal interpretation from the books.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and recommend it to all Harry Potter fans.
