Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: Book vs Movie - A movie that came out in 2002 was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This movie was based off the best-selling novel, which was written in 1997 by J.K. Rowling, called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. If you were to read this book and watch the movie you would find many differences, but the main difference between the two is that the book gives more information to the reader than the movie gives to the viewer.

The hidden purpose was to avoid students and other teachers for as long as possible. Why. Earlier in the summer I had accepted a job at Our Lady of Justice high school in one of the small corners of the large city of London, Ontario....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 1788 words

The core desire for every human being is acceptance: love.

Despite the true nature of identity lying well within the boundaries of the human body, many query these foreign sources in an attempt to create their identity, usually one far removed from what lies within....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1467 words
