Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone cassette 2 of 6

This cassette takes the story up through part of the train ride to Hogwarts. Rowling is occasionally criticized for shoddy world building. Actually the way the Wizard world is described Harry is only learning about information he would have to know at the time. I was going to complain about the description of the monetary system [29 knuts in a sickle, 17 sickles in a galleon] being included but then realized he would obviously have to know this to be able to function. So I actually like it.
