My problem was that these books were missing chunks of pages! We didn't notice it until book 4 of 6, but 80+ pages were gone! Now, Amazon was great about replacing the set adn paying for me to return the messed-up set. This is just a warning to check your boxed set when it gets in for missing chunks of pages!

Of course, the Harry Potter series is great, adn we love having them in paperback.

Nice paperback set with slipcover - makes a great gift. If you're one of the half dozen people on the planet who has not yet read this amazing series - or if you're on the fence about getting it for a child - DON'T HESITATE. This isn't overly pop or half baked stuff. Harry Potter is a phenomenon because JK Rowling is an incredible writer. She brilliantly crafts a vivid alternate universe where magic is real. The plots of each book are a brilliant balance of coming of age story, comraderie, danger, and epic good against evil. There are parallels to Aescelus, Erypides, and "the Lord of the Rings". Rowling has a special affinity for action. Each of the books brews and simmers until a rip roaring conclusion. Most folks read the last couple of hundred pages of each of these in a single sitting (or must be agonizingly torn away).

Some folks might figure they'll just watch the movies. That's ironic. Rowling specifically stated part of her motivation in writing these was to get kids to read. As amazing as the movies are, they can't touch the books. Isn't that pretty much always the case? This series is great literature, and is compulsively page turningly entertaining. They have turned millions of kids on to reading. I give them my highest recommendation.

A Kid's Review on April 18, 2007
Format: Paperback
The Harry Potter series is a great series because the author explains the characters so well. The plot is full of adventure. I like the 1st book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone because it is when Harry finds out he is a wizard, he first goes to Hogwarts, he meets friends, and gets foes.

I like the 2nd book Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets because Dobby comes and tells him not to go back to Hogwarts, he goes to school anyway, and a lot of weird things happen (I can not tell you though).

I like the third book Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban because he goes on the night bus and has a crazy ride, Aunt Marge starts saying bad things about him, he gets mad, and he finds out that Sirius Black got away from Azkaban.

I like the 4th book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire because there is a tournament between 3 schools that Harry some how gets entered in to and he has to do the things in the tournament.

I like the 5th book Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix because they make an order to fight dark wizards, Harry and Cho get into a relationship, and he has a court trial for using under-aged magic.

I like the 6th book Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince because Harry gets picked up early by Dumbledore and helps him make an old teacher come back.

My favorite book in the series is the 5th book. My favorite character is Harry Potter.

The series themes are life as a wizard and good versus evil. I recommend this series for all ages. I think this is the best series ever!

I was so happy to find this for so cheap. My best friend has never read the books and I am so obsessed with them. She finally agreed to read the books but refused to check them out of the library and couldn't afford all of the books seperately. I found this and bought it for her birthday. She loved it and now she is starting to read the books. ANOTHER ONE HOOKED!

This boxed set allows you to buy the first six paperbooks in the Harry Potter series at a very reasonable price. I think buying it is a good idea for:

a- those who want to give their kids/friends (or even themselves) a great gift at a very good price --> due to the fact that you will give 6 books at the price that some bookstores sell just 1.

b- those who are very lazy --> because it is almost certain that if you buy the first book for yourself or your children, you will end up at the same bookstore buying the other books in the series. Buying the first 6 books at the same time will save you time and money, and you will only have to return later to buy book number 7, to be released on July 2007.

c- those who want to read a book that their kids will love, but that they will like to, and turn the fact that they are reading the series into a family experience.

d- those who want to motivate their children to read --> because reading Harry Potter will make them understand that there are books can offer them some things that the television cannot. If your children just hate the idea of reading, show them one of the movies based on the series, and afterwards tell them that the books have a lot to do with them, but that they are way better.

e- those who are learning English, and want to practise it in a entertaining way. And what better way to improve your grammar that reading something that is actually fun?.

f- those who aren't from an English speaking country, already have the books but want to read them in the language Rowlings wrote them --> because the reading experience is totally different (and yes, I know because I read some of the books both in Spanish, Italian and English).
