Four years later I just finished the final book with them. It's been a four year bonding experience like no other. When we completed each book we'd watch the accompanying film and then start the next. It was amazing. I would STRONGLY recommend this for anyone who thinks they're too old to start them now. And --- BTW --- I loved every book just as much as my kids :)(less)

I know I have specific reviews for each of the books, but I just wanted to add a general review, especially for those wondering what people, especially adults, see in Harry Potter. When my brother was in junior high, he lent me his copies of books 1-4. Maybe it was because I was seeing the story through his eyes or that I wasn't expecting much from children's literature but I was surprised to find how entertaining and well written these books were. They had that "it" factor where you can't put i ...more

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about why the Harry Potter series is so damn good. I love it. And it’s had an incredible amount of success. Why? What makes it so damn special? Well for me, the answer is simple. It’s so great because J.K Rowling knows exactly how to speak to her reader.

She begins her story by showing the reader an incredibly boring world; it’s reality: it’s mundane, grey, tasteless and monotonous. So, in essence, it’s everyday life. It’s just the crap that every kid has to deal

I've resisted writing reviews for these books for a while now, because it sort of seems like a pointless effort. Everyone knows these books, and there doesn't seem to be anything more to say about them. But then I figured, why not add my two cents? So here we go:

I am a member of what I'll call "the Harry Potter generation" - ie, I was a kid when these books first came out, and I've literally grown up with the series. My best friend in elementary school gave me Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Sto

How to choose a single book in the Harry Potter saga? How to choose a part of something that needs each part to generate the expected impact? I was precisely trying to choose one book to use as example in my "favorites" virtual shelf but I realize that not matter which book would I chose, it would feel "incomplete". So I think that the better way is to add this complete edition including the seven novels to use it in my "favorites" virtual shelf.

A truly seven masterful works of fiction..

Some Harry Potter Facts:

No books have influenced me the way the Harry Potter series has. It shaped me as a child, as a teenager, as a young adult. It shaped me as an individual.

I don't know why. I don't know what magic they hold that makes me overlook every flaw they might have, I don't know why it was these books specifically. I can't explain it.

All I know is that these books came into my life and lit up my soul in a way that I never knew was possible. Years and years later, I still re-read them and sink into that w

I am an absolute Harry Potter fan. I picked up the series when I was in college and was blown away by this mesmerizing and page-turning "children's book". J.K. Rowling is an absolute genius. I've always had an active imagination, and this world was so easy to enter. In fact, the world Rowling creates in Harry Potter is so real that I often find myself - and this is scary to admit - believing I can do magic.

This is a review for the HP series as a whole, not this particular boxset.

Overall, I loved the series. The biggest thing for me was the world Rowling created and all the imagination that went into it. Strip away the world and you've got a fairly good storyline/mystery and some good characters. But it is the fantasy world that elevates this series for me. I remember reading the first book and thinking, "Rowling presents a new invention on almost every page!" Imagine how long a list would be of al

Right before the last installment came out, I went to the public library and checked out the first book in the series, and didn't stop until I had closed the final one. It took me about two and a half months, but I read the whole series from start to finish.

Say what you will about the story, the characters, the writing, but from my experience in child care over the last five years, I can assure you that it is not all too common to see a child toting a book under their arm, waiting for three minu

You know those annoying kids who go to the movies to watch any Harry Potter movie at the earliest hour possible, dressed in hogwarts robes, speaking with a British accent and claiming to be in Gryffindor? Or those kids who immediately jump into a conversation involving Harry Potter and inform everyone of all they know on the topic? Yeah, well. I'm one of them. ...more

Welp. I did it. I finally diddly-dun-did it. I caved. I got a hold of the complete audiobook set read by the lovely Stephen Fry and dove right in. (Sidebar, I haven't had the slightest desire to actually read these past several months; audiobooks have become my solace lately.)

As someone who only saw the movies--never having grown up with the books since I wasn't a reader as a kid--I was surprised how very few differences there were between the books and movies. The books felt like much more in-d

There are countless reviews about the HP book out there, so I'll try to be brief. After all, who hasn't read at least some of the books or seen the movies?

I began to read the books after watching the first movie because I loved it..and well, why deny it? Because everybody else was doing so. But I was ten years old and I had nothing to compare it with. After reading Harry Potter, I realized how different they are. The movies are OK, entertaining but nothing more. They lack the magic of the books.

I have read the books AND listened to them on CD. Here's the story of how I became a fan of HP:

I am an avid reader and years ago, when the Harry Potter books first came to the U.S. and caused such a sensation, I resisted reading them. I'm not a big fan of fantasy lit, so I thought that reading about wizards and such was not for me. It was as a mother of two cranky children that I ended up trying the books, and I am SO glad that I did not end up missing out on this brilliant and wonderful series

It's time for a disclaimer. It's 2020, and many Harry Potter fans are disappointed with Ms. Rowling, so much so that they're starting to resent the books themselves.
So I want to say that for me personally, what Rowling shares on social media and how fans react to it haven't changed my love for the books. The controversies have of course made me go back and reflect on all the imperfections, problems, and ridiculous bits in the books (because they do exist) but they haven't made me cancel the boo

Harry Potter and his friends is a series so special to me. J.K. Rowling created a whole new magical world, very detailed and ingenious, which kept going for seven books with the same quality.
There are so many ineteresting characters beyond the main ones, who are brilliant. Luna Lovegood, Remus Lupin, Minerva McGonagall and many others are interesting, loveable and so real in their vulnerability .
The plot is intelligent, but to my opinion more ipressive were two features. J.K. Rowling uses symbol

Harry Potter had his life stolen from him before it ever had the chance to begin. He's haunted by nightmares of green explosions and evil laughter. His parents were violently murdered when he was just a baby. He's forced to live with his wicked aunt, uncle and cousin who treat him worse than garbage. His life is a complete disaster until he learns on his eleventh birthday that's he's a wizard destined for great things as well as having already accomplished quite a few of
