5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter books are brilliant! 27 July 1999
By A Customer
I've read all the Harry Potter books so far and I find them impossible to put down. They are imaginative and addictive, and though I am at the edge of the suggested age range (I am twelve years old), I'm sure I'll continue to enjoy them into my teenage years. I am convinced these books will become classics, just like Roald Dahl's books. They have everything a good childrens' books should have: a good plot, great characters, and a well drawn line between good and evil. I would reccomend them to anyone. Especially children my age and younger.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!! these books are amazing!!! 30 July 1999
By A Customer
wow! these harry potter books are amazing!i have stayed up far past my useual bedtime soaking up these books. it is refreshing to read a fantasy book that isn't all about morphing into animals and saving the world. i am 11 and i am planning on saving these books for my own children, because by then there will be an abridged version and it will be edited and it just won't be the same.keep on rolling J.K.!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars We love Harry Potter! 7 Sep 1999
By A Customer
J.K.Rowling's books are sure to be classics. I love children's books, even into adulthood. I read the first two to my younger brother and we couldn't wait to see what happened to our young hero next. We are looking forward to the next one.

I did not actually want to read the Harry Potter books and though all the hype about the 4th was silly. I was given some money for my birthday and I decided to give them a try. I fell in LOVE with the first book, all it's misterious twists and suprises! I then decided to go onto the 2nd book, and the 3rd! I just could not get enough Harry Potter! When the 4th book did come out I read it in one day...and I was not speed reading or anything, I just could not put it down! I have found out that the 5th book is called Harry Potter and the Order of Pheonix. I cannot wait for it to be released. What I like from these books is just the way that it suprises you, and that maybe the most simple character may not be so innocent as they first appear to be. I love every character because everyone has their own personality that plays an important roll in the story. I love Fred and George Weasly becaue they are funny and make jokes all the time, I like Professor Lupin because he is kind yet hides a dark secret and I hate Draco Malfoy because he has a mean character which adds yet another twist to the story...

I bought the first book in this series last week, for the same reason, I think, as most adults - to see what all the fuss was about. Whatever I was expecting, it certainly wasn't what I got!
I'm an avid Stephen King fan, and am also completely immersed in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings Trilogy, but never in all my days of reading can I remember such fast-paced, frantic turning of pages as when I was reading Harry Potter! I had to force myself not to flick ahead to see how the really tense or exciting bits turned out! I just couldn't put it down! My 2 year old son's normal bedtime stories were replaced by whatever part of the novel I happened to be at! All housework was done one-handed! Quiet periods at work were spent with the book in hand! I was racing through the story to see what happened next, and laughing out loud the whole way through at the antics and sayings of Rowling's excellent characters. I can honestly say that I've never enjoyed a book more!
After finishing the fourth novel I'm now quite sad, and I envy anyone their first read of this excellent series. Needless to say, I've just purchased the set for my younger sister, and am prepared to convert anyone who'll listen to me!
I can't wait until my son is old enough for me to really read this to him and see the delight on his face!

being 23 years old and a devoted reader of forensic thrillers, i couldn't for the life of me understand what all the fuss was about. everyone and their dog seemed to be hooked on this childrens book. so just to prove a point, i picked up the first book and read. and read. and read! all the way to the last book. all in a week. the sales lady at the book store didn't seem to be surprised to see me come in day after day picking up the next book in the Harry Potter series. obviously i failed miserably in trying to prove a point, but hey, i got to read one of the best series of books that i have ever laid my hands on...so i'm not complaining! when in the world is the next book coming out?

5.0 out of 5 stars Preaching to the converted! 4 May 2001
Format:Perfect Paperback
When the Harry Potter books first came out, I did not believe the hype, and thought they were just for children. However, after reading some reviews from people (of all ages) and seeing the excellent amazon offer for the box set, I thought I should try them out....... and I was addicted after the first chapter of Philosopher's Stone! After receiving the three books on Saturday, I finished Prisoner of Azkaban last night, just five days after I got them. Now I can't wait until the fourth is out in paper-back. I have just preordered it! The way JK Rowling can write a book, enabling adults and children alike to enjoy it is amazing. If only there really was a Hogwarts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely addictive reading for all ages 30 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Perfect Paperback
My husband bought me the fourth book for a joke - I had to borrow the first one from the kids over the road... we're all completely hooked including my 77 year old Auntie, stepson & daughter in their 20's, sister in law aged 40 - what a phenomenon. Can't wait for the next one!
