A Final Piece of Advice
If you are asked to analyze a novel or make a book report, you will often be asked to do it in the form of an essay where you may be asked to give your opinion of the novel at the end. Choose the elements that made the greatest impression on you. Point out which character/characters you liked best or least and always support your arguments.
Now, you are ready to analyze Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Good luck! If you need further help, you may get ideas by checking this website: Sparknotes - Harry Potter.
