This review is from: Harry Potter agus an ”rchloch / Harry Potter and the Philospher's Stone (Hardcover)
Harry Potter is essential reading regardless of what language you speak (or read), so I won't dwell on the plot itself.
The translation is top-notch. It may be a bit advanced for beginners but it's definitely worth sticking with. Once you familiarize yourself with the magical jargon, which most people wouldn't have come across beforehand, you begin to fly through the pages, enjoying J.K. Rowling's masterpiece for what it is.
Máire Nic Mhaoláin has done a tremendous job translating and one can only hope that the Chamber of Secrets (or 'Seomra na Rún' as the in-sleeve teases) is in the works.
