Such a great ending to a fun first book.

1- I agree that the double reveal was done so well. The first time reading through we believed as did the trio that Snape was the one after the Stone. Then we learn that Snape had actually been trying to save Harry and that Quirrell was carrying around Voldemort in his head.

2- I agree that the Quirrell possession is a bit confusing. It took me a few times to get it right.

3- Harry’s lie about what he sees in the mirror is just fine for most teenagers.

4- I was very confused about how the stone got into Harry’s pocket. It took several times for me to get it.

5- Quirrell being burnt by Harry’s touch is quite the scene.

6- The fear of death theme is firmly planted in this chapter. Death is something that Voldemort is unwilling to face and it eventually is his undoing.

7- I love at the end that Neville is the one that gets the final points for Gryffindor.
