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.

Having read all the books in English, I picked this up to see what I could make of it. It is extremely well-edited; it keeps the important plot points and preserves all the flavor of the original book. Reading it in French, I noticed some subtle (and really adorable) things that I missed in English, simply becuase I had to read more carefully. I kept my dictionary close at hand, but it really is written on the level of, probably, a 9-year-old.

This was a gift for my daughter who had taken 4 years of High School French. She is an avid Harry Potter reader and this has been a fun challenge for her.

I'm an intermediate French student and so far this book has helped me learn considerably, however it is not for beginners or even newly-intermediate French learners. The vocabulary will be foreign to you, since most French classes won't teach you that "Une baguette magique" means a wand. If you purchase it, make sure you have a copy of the English version (or whichever version is your native language) to read alongside. It will further your understanding. I definitely enjoy being able to read and understand this book in French, though.

While this translation stays true to the main story and its characters, I notice a few things that are omitted completely. Unfortunately, these are all of the bits of sundry details that helped to paint the Wizarding world more vividly in the English version.

I read the paperback edition of the 1st harry potter book in french twice over the past 5 years. The 2nd time was recent and my reading french is now good enough that it took fire - I understood enough that it was much more of a pleasure than a painful task. Your french has to be of a certain level for this to work. I'd say intermediate-advanced. After quickly finishing the 1st paperback edition, I decided to try the kindle edition of La Chambre de Secrets on my iPad (iOS6). The purchase process is, I must admit, slightly confusing: you are directed to Pottermore to complete your purchase then you can download to a target device - I choose Kindle device I think. The process is not that difficult - simply a little different than the direct downloading. The absolutely awesome thing is that once I downloaded Chambre de S. and tapped on a word I didn't know, an amazing surprise - something like "dictionary unavailable - would you like to download it?" popped up. (must note that my iPad is set-up with french as the language in system prefs. I don't know if this was necessary or not) With a wifi connection, you can download for free the french-french dictionary (french-french! NOT French-english). Also selecting an unknown word also gives you links to check the word/phrase in wiki french or google.fr. Sometimes these are helpful - sometimes not. So IF your knowledge of french is fairly advanced - or maybe very advanced, this can be a wonderful experience for an adult. The books themselves are captivating. I find the vocabulary quite challenging. Perhaps it really is 4th grade, but there is quite a bit of vocabulary I had not experienced. I am currently plowing through le prisonnier d'azkaban (significantly longer) and thoroughly enjoying that one as well.Read more ›

Highly recommend getting Harry Potter in Spanish or French for a high schooler who knows the books well enough that they can gain mastery over the language they are learning.

Harry Potter is back at Hogwarts, his wizarding school, and thankful for it. He had the worst summer with the Dursleys, his aunt, uncle, and cousin, whom he hates. He met a house elf, who caused him to be locked in his room for 3 days, with next to no food at all. Then the Wesleys come to rescue him, in a flying car. But that is not all that happends, Harry and Ron can't get through the wall to the Hogwarts train that awaits them on the other side. Then they remember the flying car. After a rough journey to his school and an even rougher landing, Harry Potter thinks that it can't gets worse, but it does. A cat is found hanging on a lamp post in front of Harry, Ron and Hermione, not quite dead, but not really alive, it was Stunned. Then, even worse, a student is next. Everyone, but a couple of his friends thinks that Harry did it. And when people keep getting Stunned, no one belives that he is innocent. It is up to Ron, Hermione, and Harry to find out who is really doing it, before the Hogwarts students get killed off one by one......

It's a brand new book and already two pages have come out. Very annoying, next time I'll just buy hardback.
