5.0 out of 5 stars A litrarary triumph!, 22 Dec 2002
If you enjoyed the 'Philosophers stone' , or even the film, then you will love this book. It tells the story of Harry and his friends in their second year at Hogwarts, where Harry is spooked by mysterious voices that only he can hear. There are also more revelations for Harry about his past and present. An enjoyable book for all which compromises humour, mystery and suspense. I recommend that you read the books in order (fingers crossed for book 5 soon!)so that they make logical sense but each book is a work of genius in its own right anyway, so it is not vital. This book introduces many new charcters, including Gilderoy Lockehart, the teacher who can't get enough of his own face! an… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars SIMPLY THE BEST, 16 Dec 2002
After reading many of Agatha's books before, i was expecting this to be just as enthralling. But as the first book she ever wrote, i found it to be the best i have ever read. Meticulous Hercule Poirot is at his finest along with sidekick Hastings and the plots and twists of the book are simply brilliant; Christie is a genius. The only downside to the book is the slightly slow beginning but after the first few chapters i guarantee you won't be able to put it down! I gave it to my mum to read and she's been hooked on Agatha Christie ever since! A good read for young and old fans alike.
