The Boy Who Lived Could Not Live Without
When an intended children’s story can become a worldwide bestseller, there’s something more to learn than some hidden common moral. As a mother, teacher, charitable volunteer and author, J.K. Rowling wrote a series of seven books known to most people as the exceptional Harry Potter. Being there is more to gain from the reading than just a hero defeating his nemesis; not only children, but teenagers and adults are caught carrying the bewildering stories of Harry Potter all over the world. Written for the reader’s of imagination, J.K. Rowling presents a magical world designed for magical characters that leak an enormous resemblance of real-life tribulations, emotions and consequence. In the first novel of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, we see more than just our main character closing in on his toughest opponents and overthrowing them on his own. The other characters in the story contribute a substantial amount to Harry’s success. From Hagrid to Snape, Dumbledore and the rest of the teachers at Hogwarts School’s of Witch Craft and Wizardry- without them, but not forgetting the question less Ron and Hermione, Harry would be nothing more than a young boy with a scar and a lucky fight.Ripped apart between good and evil through this entire novel, a companionship rises into Harry by the characters surrounding him. The strive to convert into an anti-Voldemort becomes Harry’s main objective during his first year at Hogwarts. To add to Harry’s maddening pressure to live up to his own name, he has Professor Severus Snape and the tormenting student, Draco Malfoy to twist the knife of his existing problems. The opposition and unsettling balance that is created through professor Snape and Harry seems to only be an act of Snape’s parent-like protection he rather keep hidden. Almost embarrassed of his guilt and what he owes Harry’s father, Snape is hard on Harry and acts his part of a heartless and bias Slytherin. At the end of the story we find that Snape is only trying to help Harry by saving him and that shows there is a moral choice for people to make rather than the choice of the label they are thrown into.
