Having read that Mr Wilson was not so enamoured with H.
Lovecraft, I had not seen this coming. But I like Lovecraft. The bottom line: I am amazed at how the great old ones and Kthulhu were implicated in this, and I am guessing that The Philosopher's Stone was Mr Wilson's attempt to give a more positive reading of Lovecraft's dark and fear-induced writings. A very good book then. My only gripe is the end, which, I think, felt somewhat rushed to conclude the story and kind of 'shorter' compared to the rest of the book.
Still, a very good and enjoyable read. Like Sheryl, I have had a paperback copy for years, and finally got a kindle version. It is quite complex if you really think about what you just read. He must think more of the Voynich manuscript than I do. One person found this helpful. Thought provoking to say the least.
This book was recommended to me by my dear mother when I was a teen.
I have since read it two more times to include this latest reading. Colin Wilson was a fine author and all of his books are worthy of reading at least once!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but it's not a light read. It's mostly philosophy and doesn't get really intriguing until about halfway through the book. Once it did, though, I couldn't put it down.

McGonagall reverts back into the cat and slinks around the corner at the other end of the street, but Dumbledore stays to unsyphon the light from the street lamps and bid Harry farewell before vanishing without a trace.
Harry rolls over inside his bundle of blankets with his small hand closing on the letter as he sleeps on, not knowing he is special and famous, nor that he will be woken up the next morning by his Aunt Petunia's scream when she opens the front door to put out the milk bottles, nor that he will be spending the next few weeks being prodded and pinch by his cousin Dudley.
And he will never know that at this very moment, people meeting in secret all over the country are holding up glasses and saying in hushed voices: "To Harry Potter -- the boy who lived!
The only difference is the vast number of pictures of Dudley Dursley throughout his life. Harry is trying to think about the dream he had been having. It was about a flying motorbike , and he thinks he has had the same dream before. Aunt Petunia tells him to make some bacon, as she wants everything perfect for Dudley's 11th birthday. Harry dresses into a pair of Dudley's old clothes, and goes into the kitchen, where the table is covered in Dudley's presents.
Harry has jet-black hair and green eyes. His glasses are held together by tape because Dudley has smashed them so many times.
He often wonders how he got it and the Dursleys have told him that he got it from the car crash that killed Harry's parents. Harry doesn't know much more about the accident though because the Dursleys' first rule is to not ask questions.
Dudley comes in to the kitchen and begins to count his presents, only to find 37, which he angrily recalls is one fewer than the year before. Aunt Petunia states that they are going to buy him two new presents while they are out. Vernon tells Petunia that Arabella Figg , their next-door neighbour, has broken her leg and cannot take care of Harry while they are at the Zoo.
They can't think of anyone else who can take care of him, so Harry has to go with them. Dudley is allowed to take a friend to the Zoo and chooses his friend Piers Polkiss. Piers comes to the house with his mother. On the way, a motorbike overtakes them and Vernon complains about them.
Harry explains that he had a dream about a flying motorbike once and Vernon snappily reminds him that motorbikes do not fly. Harry thinks about all the strange things that have happened to him: He once turned his teacher's wig blue, jumped onto the school chimney, and grew all of his hair back the morning after a haircut.
At the zoo, Dudley and Piers find the animals boring. Winter The Lunar Chronicles Book 4. Marissa Meyer. A Court of Wings and Ruin. The Crown The Selection, Book 5. Kiera Cass. Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead Book 3.

Dumbledore, however, was choosing another lemon drop and did not answer. Saved Searches Advanced Search. His stories reveal an intuitive mind, an integrated psyche, and steadfast allegiance to his life mission: I had really no idea of the scope of the international spiritual healing work that she was beginning to develop--and that she herself only hinted at in the stories that she was telling me. High recommendation ,especially in our present time as yes there is a need for the skilled minority to leave the mass of humanity and their problems to be solved by the evolved Old Ones who are awakened now.
He attempts to convince himself that these are merely coincidences. And now, over to Jim McGuffin with the weather.
