The Book Set is great, the treasure chest container damaged in shipping twice.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Percy Jackson and the Olympians Hardcover Boxed Set: Books 1 - 5 (Hardcover)
We purchased the book set for our son for Christmas. The first set was sent back because the "treasure chest" carton was torn in several places, even though the shipping container appeared undamaged. The replacement "treasure chest" was in even worse shape, even though the second shipping container appeared undamaged. Rather than fuss with shipping it back again, we purchased a wooden "treasure chest" from a world market to place the book set in. We're satisfied now and the books look even nicer stored in the wooden chest.

I'd be curious if Amazon shipped the book set or some other third party, since there are a lot of them working on Amazon.

But they are saying the shipping container(outer wrapper) was undamaged in both cases. So the damage happened before the item got in the box, it would appear. However, if time constraint were an issue, I do see your point about going to a book store. Not everyone has a Barnes & Noble that is convenient to them.
