Perfect - lower ratings seem to be from people expecting too much.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hogwarts Library Boxed Set including Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them (Hardcover)
Right, first off, I'm a bit frustrated that people are giving this product poor reviews because the individual books are simplistic, or short. These were Comic Relief extras, written with to raise a bit of cash for charity. If you're going to buy, make sure you know what you're paying for, before clicking that button.
That aside, I'm perfectly happy with the box set. I work in a bookshop where we sell this set at £20 (£5 off the £25 RRP.) I wanted to buy it for a friend, but decided to check Amazon first. £10 is an incredible price for it, it came sealed in cellophane and arrived promptly.
In summary: yes, they're short, but if you've researched properly, you'll know that already. Regardless, the box set makes the perfect gift for a Potter fan; my friend loved it.

With respect, your review title seems rather self-contradictory: if it's "perfect" then surely the bad reviewers can't be people expecting too much! At least I find it hard to believe there's a crew of reviewers out there demanding more than perfection.

Heh. Perhaps I was a little over-enthusiastic in my review, for that I apologise. Of course, any review is bound to subjectivity, as it's just opinion, but I wanted to make it clear that the low reviews weren't down to product fault, without writing a paragraph. Anyway, it was absolutely fit-for-purpose, arrived quickly and was undamaged!
