5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter is Always Well Received 23 May 2007
By J. Chippindale TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
To be able to have all the Harry Potter books in one boxed set is a great advantage. For one thing they are all in the same format (publishers have this habit of "freshening" books up, i.e. changing the front cover and the type font etc. So to have all the books in the same format is a bonus and a wonderful gift for someone.

Some would argue that the Harry Potter books are the best books ever written for older children. There are so many good ones that I reserve judgment on that, but they are certainly up there among the best and have caught the imagination of many children over the last decade.

It is a fact that many children these days have moved away from books as a means of pleasantly passing the time and gone on to computer games, which are good fun, but not when used to the exclusion of everything else. Harry Potter books are the exception to the rule, at least with the children that I know.

J. K. Rowlings books are a form of escapism in themselves, very much like some of the computer games, but they contain so much more as well, with the added benefit of honing not only the reading skills but also the vocabulary of our children. The stories are interesting enough to hold their attention, in fact there are no down sides. If it was a straight choice between a computer game or a good book I know which I would choose for my children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value 26 Nov 2007
Format:Paperback
I had always been hesitiant to read these books due to the mass amounts of hype they attracted, but recently I succommed under pressure from friends.

Although this box set isnt complete (final book missing), it is so much cheaper to purchase this then by the final book seperately.

Its a really good set and great value for money-also I feel that the author developes the charachters greatly as the story proceeds and as it all developes the plot really does engolf you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Share the magic :) 2 May 2007
Format:Paperback
This boxed set allows you to buy the first six paperbooks in the Harry Potter series at a very reasonable price. I think buying it is a good idea for:

a- those who want to give their kids/friends (or even themselves) a great gift at a very good price --> due to the fact that you will give 6 books at the price that some bookstores sell just 1.

b- those who are very lazy --> because it is almost certain that if you buy the first book for yourself or your children, you will end up at the same bookstore buying the other books in the series. Buying the first 6 books at the same time will save you time and money, and you will only have to return later to buy book number 7, to be released on July 2007.

c- those who want to read a book that their kids will love, but that they will like to, and turn the fact that they are reading the series into a family experience.

d- those who want to motivate their children to read --> because reading Harry Potter will make them understand that there are books can offer them some things that the television cannot. If your children just hate the idea of reading, show them one of the movies based on the series, and afterwards tell them that the books have a lot to do with them, but that they are way better.

e- those who are learning English, and want to practise it in a entertaining way. And what better way to improve your grammar that reading something that is actually fun?.

f- those who aren't from an English speaking country, already have the books but want to read them in the language Rowlings wrote them --> because the reading experience is totally different (and yes, I know because I read some of the books both in Spanish, Italian and English).

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful set... 11 Sep 2007
By DCross
Format:Hardcover
I live in the US, and debated whether or not to buy the Bloomsbury editions. I don't regret it at all. There is such a difference in the US versions vs. the UK version. Both good and bad. The covers to the early UK editions, are quite frankly UGLY though.

3.0 out of 5 stars You must be mad! 4 Jun 2007
Format:Paperback
No matter how good the books, why on earth would anyone buy this box set of 6 when you can wait for the complete set of 7 books in a few months!

The only reason to buy this set is the fantastic price, just over 4 a book, but forget the fact they're in a boxed set!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Reading Material 8 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback
JK Rowling is a genius. All six of these books are among the best works of fiction that I have ever read. I am currently reading "philosophers stone" for the umpteenth time. I simply cannot get enough of Harry Potter. Am looking forward to "Deathly Hallows". Cant wait to see what happens next. I buy the adult cover versions as they are much more subtle than the bright colours of the childrens. The covers also give representation to what the story is about. If anyone was new to Harry, I would definately say BUY ALL THE BOOKS. Once I start reading the series again, I have to continue right to the end of "Half Blood Prince". Each year of Harry Potter's life sees him facing new challenges and you are able to watch him grow as a person. I much prefer concurrent books as it makes for a much easier progression from one book to the next. Also, Harry is faced with typical teenage anxietys which allows you to relate to the character.

Hurry up JK Rowling. Bring on "Deathly Hallows" and put an end to the speculation and suspense.
