Harry potter and philosopher stone capter 17
the man with two faces
Presentation in power point
-Basically, Harry discovers that it is Quirrell who is after the Stone and serving Voldemort, not Snape. Quirrell tries to use the Mirror of Erised to find the Stone but the Mirror gives it Harry.
-The choice of title for this chapter is amazing.
-In typical wizarding fashion, both meanings of "two-faced" are meant in referring to Quirrell:
-And the moral of that story is - taking someone else at face value can be a BIG mistake.
-This is the only point in the chapter where Quirrell's stutter asserts itself, to make the point that he's been faking it all along to mislead people into underestimating him.
"Yes, Severus does seem the type, doesn't he? So useful to have him swooping around like an overgrown bat. Next to him, who would suspect p-p-poor, st-stuttering P-Professor Quirrell?"

Overall, it appears the book is consistent in semantic complexity. It appears the first chapter is the easiest to read, followed by the last chapter and then the middle based on semantic complexity.
