Product description

Review

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 the Hardcover edition.

Book Description

The complete collection of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels, with stunning new collectable jackets by acclaimed woodcut artist Andrew Davidson

This product review relates specifically to a physical appraisal of the red-coloured Harry Potter boxed collection comprising hardcover books 1-7, published by Bloomsbury (UK) in 2014, with the ISBN 9781408856789.

It’s a boxed version that’s described by Bloomsbury as “Children’s” (don’t be put off by this, see below). It offers a gold dragon motif along its box exterior, access to contents is enabled via a dual front flap design secured by a hidden magnetic latch.

First up, what is the difference between Bloomsbury’s “Children’s” and “Adult” offerings when it comes of its Harry Potter texts?

Simply put, it’s their individual cover designs. That’s it. I had no qualms purchasing the hardcover Children’s boxed set as an adult. Removing each book’s dust jacket as a exercise, you’d have no idea which version you’re looking at at all. Researching the overall art effect, I actually found the adult dust jackets quite bland and unimaginative. Greys instead of colours for a start.

Each hardcover within this set is available for separate purchase too should a replacement ever be required. Bloomsbury simply packaged the whole, created a nifty case and voila! We get a boxed set. Ditto for it’s paperback offering.

Each hardcover is roughly 20.5cm x 13.5 cm in area (8 inches x 5.5 inches). Each has a uniquely drawn durable dust jacket, numbered on the spine according to volume and applying gold embossing for its front “Harry Potter” logo.

As a very nice touch, once these dust jackets are removed (say you’d prefer to read without them in place or not plastic cover them) we find a faux-cloth board texture with an inlaid golden star pattern front and spine, together with a similarly inlaid golden title and volume label per book.

I spent a long time deciding which version of the paperback books to buy (the adult or children editions). Although the front cover art-work on the adult editions is more attractive (to me, as an adult), the print is terrible in comparison (tiny, blocky font on cheaper/rougher paper), and sadly makes the books feel very cheap. I went for the children's edition, and have not regretted it! The books in this edition are set on good quality paper, with a easy-on-the-eye font, and come in a sturdy flip-top cardboard case. Look no further!

Arrived in beautiful condition, and earlier than expected. The covers are astounding and the design of the box is phenomenal. Would definitely recommend to any potter heads out there! Great value for money.

I enjoyed the first two Harry Potter books so much that I knew I was hooked. I wanted to read the next two books in their original (British) versions. (I had the American editions of the first two volumes.) When I saw amazon.co.uk's great price on the four-volume hardback box set, I ordered immediately.
THESE BOOKS ARE WONDERFUL! The British versions have much, much nicer covers; I like the fact that the dustjacket art is printed on the hard covers of the actual books, "schoolbook style." Text-wise, a few words here and there are changed for American readers ("tank" instead of "cistern"), and I personally enjoy encountering the original Britishisms (such as "gormless") instead of the American "translations."
THE MOST IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UK AND US EDITIONS: The US editions of the books have small black-and-white illustrations at the beginning of each chapter which usually give away important plot points and completely ruin the suspense of what is going to happen. What a terrible idea! I prefer no illustrations at all, UK-edition-style.
The one drawback to the British editions is that they are not printed on paper that is as good as the US editions (although the UK books' paper quality is vastly improved by book four). The first book's paper is worse than the paper used in most paperbacks; a real disappointment, quality wise. But the stories are so good you won't care!

I laughed at my adult son when I found him reading Harry Potter. He said "don't knock it until you've tried it" and gave me the Philosopher's Stone for Christmas. I am now addicted and have bought and read them all.I am an avid reader of all types of literature but these are something else!

This is a great book, filled with wonderful characters who are richly described and a pleasure to read about. One of the best things about this book is the way the characters develop, learning magic and the ways of the magical world as they, without immediately becoming super powerful and capable of doing anything; the characters, certainly the main trio of Harry, Ron and Hermione, complement each other well with each bringing something to the group.

Along the way to the final confrontation there are laughs as well as some more serious scenes, all of which, though the book is intended for a younger audience, fit to be enjoyed by adults.

I’ve read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone more times than I can remember and continue to enjoy it, which I consider as important, if not more so, as how well the book’s written. In this case the book is both well written and enjoyable, and is likely to remain a favourite of mine for years to come.
