Only read this page if you've already read the first Harry Potter book! This website is intended only as
a brief summary to enable you to track back on all the different elements of the Harry Potter series.


BOOK 1 * HARRY POTTER and the Philosopher's Stone
CHAPTER 1 * THE BOY WHO LIVED
[click on any underlined words to access the linked pages - NB overall construction now on hold]


The original Book 1 Chapter 1 and Book 1 Chapter 2 pages on this site give
a fuller picture of the part of the story everyone knows.

From here on in though, the keywords should be enough to enable recall of the story (for those who have read the books!) without too much detail. You can follow up linked themes by clicking on any of the underlined words on any page - the graphics in the grid below should take you to the Book 1 page for that whole topic (spells, locations, etc.) whereas the underlined words should take you to a specific place, containing related information. We've recently closed off a number of areas of the site, as we have many hundreds of thousands of interlinks to build - but the rest of the content will be added as swiftly as time allows.

Character names are linked to alphabetical character listing pages (many characters have several different "names" - eg Mrs. Dursley, Aunt Petunia etc.) which are then linked to the individual character pages. The huge main Index to Characters (linked from the icons in the grid) will include information relating to *all* the books in due course, and is colour-coded accordingly.

This page was intended to remain "under construction" whilst all the different aspects of the books are linked together. Sol's "Welcome page" gives details about the different areas of the site, along with Harry Potter book reviews and film reviews - and the main Area 13 index page gives an overview of our reasons for creating this intricate guide to JK Rowling's Harry Potter books.

The massive amount of set-up work to engineer the interlinking of tens of thousands of keywords (characters, magic and spells, locations, items, creatures) across all seven books was finally completed back in 2008. However in the light of ongoing uncertainties about 'Harry Potter copyrights' (affecting all websites or site areas with Harry-Potter-related themes), a 'Special Note' was written on 1st July 2008, explaining the possible issues if we were to work further on creating this resource.

However that overview provides a unique insight into *why* the Harry Potter books have been so successful - as well as showing "how to write like J K Rowling". The success of the Harry Potter 7-book series was unlike anything the world has ever previously seen. How did she do it? Take a look.
