The artwork on the cover is so much better than the original book which is red. There are illustrations around the chapter headings too which adds a special something. The paper in this book is a lot firmer and of better quality. It's bigger in length than my original one by about 100 pages but that's probably just a printing difference. There isn't anything additional. I think there was a map in the front of mine but I 'm unsure.
Fab read of course.
My Granddaughter is 8yrs old but her 12 year old cousin has read all bar books 6 &7 and she thinks she can too. I'm sure if she finds them hard to understand then she will stop reading them. I'm happy she's reading, she's happy to read H.P. & the Philosophers Stone. All is well!
The story in this episode is rather slow developing, and frankly the editor must have been asleep on the job. There are numerous scenes that could have been removed and offer little to advance the story. It was really quite repetitive in places, and there are some many scenes that I felt I'd read before in other episodes. In this book Harry becomes an angst-ridden and often angry teenager whilst Hermione and Ron offer some stability, and Snape shows his usual over the top nastiness.
Although the plotting of the Prisoner of Azkhaban (Vol. 3) was well done and quite clever, I thought the Goblet of Fire was a little creaky in this regard, but here it becomes almost silly. There is no credible explanation why The Ministry turn against Dumbledore so spectacularly and the actions of Dolores Umbridge seem unbelievable. Also the sinister Death Eaters seem comically inept in the climatic scenes. The later books seem to me that the series isn't well mapped out and we are introduced to some characters and details that had no mention in previous books.
However, I guess I shouldn't lose sight of the fact that this is basically a series for children who won't over analyse the plotting. But then at 800 pages of text that is sometimes slow moving and repetitive, maybe JKR shouldn't either!
This is my least favourite in the series so far; Prisoner of Azkhaban is the one I most enjoyed.
A nice added bonus is the pull out of Diagon Alley in the back... it's going to be a collectors dream (or nightmare)
