Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Grade 4-8-This is an excellent and engaging translation of what has so quickly become a modern classic. Using accessible language in keeping with the original text, the translators have chosen to keep the quirky character's names in the original English. But they did make a brave attempt to translate the names of some important elements of the story, such as the Leaky Cauldron Tavern (Caldero Chorreante) and the much admired, super broomstick Firebolt (Saeta de Fuego). Rowling's engrossing story shines through effortlessly. Highly recommended. Emec? has also published the first two titles in the Potter series, Harry Potter y la piedra filosofal (Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone) and Harry Potter y la c mara secreta (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets).

More About the Author

J K (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling was born in the summer of 1965 at Yate General Hospital in England and grew up in Chepstow, Gwent where she went to Wyedean Comprehensive. Jo left Chepstow for Exeter University, where she earned a French and Classics degree, and where her course included one year in Paris. As a postgraduate she moved to London to work at Amnesty International, doing research into human rights abuses in Francophone Africa. She started writing the Harry Potter series during a Manchester to London King's Cross train journey, and during the next five years, outlined the plots for each book and began writing the first novel. Jo then moved to northern Portugal, where she taught English as a foreign language. She married in October 1992 and gave birth to her daughter Jessica in 1993. When her marriage ended, she returned to the UK to live in Edinburgh, where "Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone" was eventually completed and in 1996 she received an offer of publication. The following summer the world was introduced to Harry Potter."Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" was published by Bloomsbury Children's Books in June 1997 and was published as "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" in America by Arthur A. Levine Books/Scholastic in September 1998.The second title in the series, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets", was published in July 1998 (June 2, 1999 in America) and was No. 1 in the adult hardback bestseller charts for a month after publication.

Format: Hardcover
Definitivamente mi favorito de los seis. Es, a mi parecer, el climax de la serie completa: cuando te enteras de cosas, cosas, y más cosas. Cuando todo -o bueno, "todo" con Rowling es como al 15% de el real "todo"- hace click. Es cuando Harry pasa de ser un niño, a un adolescente. Me es imposible expresarlo mejor, porque de esa manera terminaría en un mes, pero léanlo y suerte.

Format: Paperback
after reading all the Harry Potter books in english wich i enjoyed extreamly, was looking forward to find how much fun would it be to read them in spanish (my first language) also. i'm so desapointed with this "dictionary" translation, the book lacks feeling, fluidity, i find it choppy and to my amaizment was to find SO many gramar incorrectness in the book, this translation shows no real effort to capture the spirit of the caracters. it's a shame that the translators did not take advantages of all the posibilities that such a great language as spanish offers to give this book the same feeling and fun to read as the english versions.

Like all the other books in the Harry Potter series, this book is well written and entertaining. While I can't speak about the quality of the translation (I'm not particularly proficient in Spanish yet), this book has proved useful in helping me to learn Spanish due to the fact that it is geared towards a younger audience and thus for the most part has a fairly simple vocabulary.

The third Harry Potter book is awesome. The author really lets the characters evolve and be more real than the previous two books. She lets them have more emotional depth and it's great.
The translation, however, is not that great. There are parts where I simply do no understand why the translators chose one word instead of some other, much better, alternative.
I agree with the first reviewer. The Spanish language can lend itself really well to certain things, and children's literature is definitely one of them. This translation could have been so different. There was such potential and it was just completely ignored.
Here's an example:
The title of the first chapter is "Lechuzas Mensajares," which means "Messenger Owls." The title of the first chapter in the English book is "Owl Post." I simply don't understand why the translators didn't translate it as "Correo de Lechuza" or even a less grammatically correct "Lechuza Correo" or any other variant of the two words.
It really is a good book, it's just sad the translation doesn't do it justice. The publishers really should retranslate it.

English is my first language and as an adult I love reading the Harry Potter books. Because I'm learning Spanish, who better to practice on than Harry?! The book arrived in excellent condition and very quickly. Quite pleased with my purchase experience.
