You have to be up for solving JKR's puzzles yourself, but if you are, this is a really cool book! I'm still working on a lot of the clues, but I can see now what Galadriel was saying about Peter Pettigrew's whereabouts and why Percy has been acting like such a jerk. It was so awesome when I saw that. I'm still working all the other stuff, and I can see that there's lots to keep me engrossed until Harry Potter 6! This book definitely kept my interest and it�s a really good deal too, considering it turned out to be really a lot more than I expected. I wouldn't recommend it for casual readers, but I'd say it's a must for us "die-hard" Potter fans!
*Book is Nice looking and formatted very well
*A lot of insight and ideas you might not have thought of while reading, along with FAQS for each chapter to help everyone understand some of the mysteries
*There is a good sized introduction that helps the Sleuth keep everything in order
*Very interesting commentary- was not boring to read even though it was only hints and questions most of the time...
-Not so good:
*Many of the clues are VERY vague and required a lot of work to actually solve.
*As someone else said, some of the possible theories the authors thought up are mostly just overanalyzed
*More info and less Questions would make it helpful and more informative, it seemed a lot of the time that the authors want you basically to make your own theories from there questions, which is good, but can be done without buying the book.
*This might just be me, but I found the "Running Bits" a complete waste of space and time. Basically, the authors would list words like "Eye" and point out how many times that word shows up, saying it might be a clue. You'll have to make your own opinion about that.
So this is the book for you if you like to do the detective work. But let me stress again... Many of the theories are VERY stretched, but for the good ones, it is definitely worth your money if you are into Harry Potter. For an example of the set up of the book, it is divided into Chapters, then in the chapters they have FAQS, Hints, Items of interest (Clues), and Running Bits. They might say, "We saw something suspicious about the disappearance of the certain rat... Did you see a connection with the new Junior Undersecretary to the minister?Read more ›

Great book for those rereading Harry Potter. Highly recommend!Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
What makes this book sparkle is its flavorful tackle of Book #5. I originally bought this back in the day, when it was first published, and was pleasantly surprised; even now I... Read morePublished on January 9, 2007 by Emily J. Morris
This one is a little harder to follow, but it is definately making me gop back and re-read book 5, there is so much that I missed the first 6 or so times!!Published on October 19, 2005 by HPNutter
I might have enjoyed this book. As it was, the hints were too vague and arch (as in mischievous, saucy) for the non- philologists. Read morePublished on September 3, 2005 by Dr Trekker
really, if I had the time to research all the references and books the author mentions, I would write my own guide!! Not worth the effort unless you aspire to PhD in Philology...Published on July 23, 2005 by Ed Bates
