An old woman tells him that his dream is prophetic and demands a part of the treasure he finds. He considered it as a mere coincidence until he met an old man who introduces himself as the king of Salem. He is uncertain as he enjoys the life of a shepherd. However, he sells his sheep to the old king to buy tickets to Tangier, Northern Africa. After reaching Tangier, he has an unlucky encounter with a thief who steals his money.

His feelings were changed when he recognised his talents in wizadry and magic in the great magic teaching school named HOGWARTS. We cannot express our feelings after reading this just in a book review. His friends Ron and Hermoine are also the main characters of this exciting story. This great book takes us to the magical world of Harry,where he has to fight hard with the evil wizard including his parents killer Voldermot. He also tried to kill Harry after killing his parents but he was not able to do that because of some unknown reasons. And Harry completes his revenge by killing him in the seventh and last story of these series. In this story also there is an exciting and nail biting fight between them for a magical stone named the 'Philosophers stone' which can keep people alive as per their wish. But in the end Harry seizes the stone from him facing many sort  of magical challenges including a game of chess. And he destroys the stone for protecting himself and the world.
I like this book because it gave me a new and great experience of suspense and thrill. And this is one of the finest books I have ever read.
I suggest this book because I am sure that no one will blame me even a little for my suggestion.

             Jack, Philip, Dinah and Lucy-Ann are to go on a night flight in Bill's new airplane and spend a few days at his peaceful countryside home in order to study wildlife. However, the children board the wrong plane and find themselves being flown by two South American men to a deserted valley in Austria, surrounded by high mountains. Not liking the look of the men, chiefly because they've got "such thick necks," the children slip out of the plane unseen in the hope of finding help but the valley is uninhabited and the few houses they come across are burnt and half-ruined. The children's main worry at first is that they have very little to eat: "An adventure was one thing — but an adventure without anything to eat was quite another thing.
I like this book because adventures happening in this book is quit fair and impressive. And the content of the story is heart catching.
