By J.K Rowling

Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone settings became different from the other series of Harry Potter because Harry, the main character, didn’t know at first the existing of Hogwarts, the school for witches and wizard, or about the possibility of something beyond the Muggle world- human realm.

       This book turns out to be exciting because it gives the reader access into two worlds. The first several chapters of the book take place at the Dursleys' prim house on Privet Drive. The Dursleys' home may look polite and regular, with its "tidy front garden" and its inhabitants' emphasis on behaving just like everyone else.

       Another, Hogwarts enchants many of Harry's fans, perhaps because it is much livelier than the schools they attend. The halls are full of classrooms, secret corridors, and trapdoors, and some parts of the castle are even forbidden. And yet, Harry feels at home here in ways he never did at the Dursleys' house, eating the best food and having the best experiences of his life. He's finally found a community. This gave the readers imagination about how beautiful a place where sorcery is involved.

    However, regardless of how magic is portrayed in the place of first series, everybody need to remember that witchcraft in real life can and does lead to death. Hogwarts is a place where witchcrafts and witch potions were being taught and it can affect many readers

      The book was opposed by many sectors specially the area involving Christianity since Hogwarts counter flow the teachings of their religion about how evil it is to be connected into sorcery. The witchcraft in Potter's world is the 'trick-or-treat' sort. Wizardry is an occupation, not a religion.

     Also, the author did not narrate well some characters that are most significant to the story.
