Глава пятая 'Косой переулок' (Diagon Alley). Первая часть
Фрагмент текста на английском языке:
Hagrid was so huge that he parted the crowd easily; all Harry had to do was keep close behind him.
They passed book shops and music stores, hamburger restaurants and cinemas, but nowhere that looked as if it could sell you a magic wand.
This was just an ordinary street full of ordinary people. Could there really be piles of wizard gold buried miles beneath them?
Were there really shops that sold spell books and broomsticks? Might this not all be some huge joke that the Dursleys had cooked up?
If Harry hadn't known that the Dursleys had no sense of humor, he might have thought so;
yet somehow, even though everything Hagrid had told him so far was unbelievable, Harry couldn't help trusting him.
