Description

"Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H'."

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

    You don’t need to read any other books before you read this one
  • Intro to a classic story.

    This book is the introduction to a classic story, revered by both children and adults alike. The writing of Rowling from the start is equisite, and being able to read book one and connect the dots to things mentioned in books 5-7 is a sign of truly phenomenal storytelling. This is a great first story in the Harry Potter series and a beautiful introduction to the fantastic rest of the series to come over six more books. I read this book for the first time in 1997 when my dad brought a copy home from LHR airport in London to our house in Toronto and I was hooked. The Chamber of Secrets wasn’t even out yet and I had to wait, impatiently, for it to come! I had a rare first edition, second printing of the first book (worth over $10K today), and I was 10 years old. I grew up as the Harry Potter books were written and released; grew up “with Harry” if you will, and still love rereading them to this day. They are just as spellbinding every time and you notice things you missed before. Great book, even better series. Buy them all!
  • Not my cup of tea.

    I typically love these types of books, and it is a well-written book, don’t get me wrong, but there was something... missing. Off-putting about it that I can’t place my finger on. It just seemed so... long, and it took longer than I’m used to for it to get to the action. It doesn’t help that it’s constantly being shoved down my throat by friends who idolize the books. They’re good books but, like I said above, they aren’t my type of book. I’ve read many books, some horrible, some amazing. I just can’t see what I disliked about this one.

    Part of the whole reason why I bought these books was so I can read them at night time without having to bright of lights in my face The story obviously I have no words they simply leave me speechless that's all I can say about the Harry Potter books & movies in two words is perfection & speechless but I'm not liking the way this is designed & theirs not much "enhanced" done to these books
  • Disappointing

    I want to start by saying I have always loved these books. Having read the originals more times then I care to count. This version was a let down, NOT WORTH THE MONEY, the enhancements were little more then sketches or gifs (not the best quality and often of irrelevant subjects/objects). This generation of books has also been re-written, simplified and gave more story away in the first book. The versions I had read in the past were the ones that came out before the series was finished, which were much better! If you are looking to read Harry Potter for the first time, or if you've only read these newer versions, I recommend finding the older versions of the books (the British release if you can).
