The CORRECT title for the first installment of the well known Harry Potter
book or film
series. JK Rowling has personally said that her biggest regret about the series is the name change
in some countries, and she thinks of it as 'Philosopher's'.
It makes much
more sense calling it 'Harry Potter
and the Philosopher's Stone' as a Philosopher's Stone
is a real item
that alchemists tried
to create hundreds of years ago. Nicholas Flamel
is also known to have
been working on this. Throughout history, there is no record
of any concept known as the 'Sorcerer's Stone'.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is the first novel
in the Harry Potter series written by J. K. Rowling and featuring Harry Potter, a young wizard. It describes
how Harry discovers he is a wizard, makes
close friends and a few enemies at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and with
the help of his friends thwarts an attempted comeback by the evil
Voldemort, who killed Harry's parents when
Harry was one year old.
