And you thought wizardry was for children. Harry Potter will make you think again. He casts his spells on grown-ups too (James Naughtie)
An incredibly gifted novelist . The fact that Harry attracted adults as well as children has never surprised me. J.K. Rowling has set the standard: it's a high one (Stephen King)
Funny, imaginative, magical . In the 2020s, thirty-something book-lovers will know each other by smug references to Diagon Alley and Quidditch (The Times)
Rowling uses classic narrative devices with flair and originality and delivers a complex and demanding plot in the form of a hugely entertaining thriller (Scotsman)
One of the greatest literary adventures of modern times (Sunday Telegraph)
Spellbinding, enchanting, bewitching stuff (The Mirror) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

These re-prints are beautifully made. I purchased the Children's edition, as I heard some negative comments regarding the Adult re-prints and I certainly don't regret it. The font is marginally larger in the first 3 books, but returns to the commonly smaller font size from Goblet of Fire onward. The covers are still very well designed, despite them being the child variants, and the book/page quality is lovely. If you're familiar with the Game of Thrones books (slightly different from the magical world of Harry Potter, I must admit), then that may give you an idea of the page and cover quality, as they're very similar.
Needless to say the contents of the books are some of the best fantasy literature that has ever been published, and is enjoyable for children and adults alike. The perfect set for introducing children to the Harry Potter world, and for adults likewise.
I found this book to not be as good as the first one. It lacked a certain something. I can't place my finger on what, but whatever it was by no means makes this book worthy of anything other than the five stars it deserves.
The best character in this book by far was Dobby the house elf. He was so adorable! I found it amusing when poor old Sir Nick got petrified and had to go to the hospital wing.
Loved the ending of this book. Once again we meet a form of the almost destroyed Lord Voldemort. The dude obviously doesn't know when to give up! You have to feel sorry for somebody like that.
Once again the adventures of Harry Potter will leave you gripped to the book wanting to keep turning the pages until you inevitably finish the book.
Fantastic for anyone who's into Harry Potter and has an interest in Latin!
