The book was fun, buying the electronic version from Pottermore, was an a annoying exercise in redundancy. Why the kindle books are not available on Amazon so they can easily be purchased, feels like a pretentious author cares more about money for each book, than the ability of the readers to easily access her books.

I needed a hardcover book to replace the one in my set. The "hardcover" book I received was a paperback book that was rebound with a hardcover. Having been a children's librarian, I know the paper is higher in acid and will not survive the test of time. I would have returned it but I let my 8 year old open the package. She's reading the series and just finished the previous book and already had to wait a few days for it to arrive.

I love how easy it is to buy books on Amazon.

Usually.

But the Pottermore site is a horrible experience. The first three books were bad enough, but now, for the fourth, it is slow, timing out, temporarily unable to service my request, and so on.

I love the books, but hate how painful they have made it to buy them.

Format: Audio Cassette
This is not a review of the book but the media. I have 100's of books on cassette but this company must use really inferior tapes, every one of the harry potter audiobooks have several tapes that are no good, when they were bought several of the books had tapes that were stuck and had to be unwound by hand to get rid of the loop. The audio books I have from Audiobookstand have been played 20 -30 times each and I have only ever had to ask for a new tape once. Listening library doesn't have good customer service and were very unhelpful when I complained about the tapes getting stuck in my player, I have played tons of audio tapes before and after these and they are the only ones that break, get stuck and make a mess. I was told finally that they would repace the tape but only this once and instead of sending a singel tape like Audiobookstand they sent the whole book, it was probably a good thing since there are now 6 broken tapes in this book alone. I wish I had gotten the CD's to start with, it would have been much cheaper then having to buy them all twice.

Book ordered as replacement for a missing copy - what was received was a hardcovered paperback. Return policy was difficult and am still waiting for credit. Will not order from this vendor again.

I was very disappointed after receiving it. I would not order another one. I would have sent it back, but couldn't find one before ordering it.

Format: Hardcover
Too long, too dark!. Not fit for kids below 16! I am disappointed from Book 4. Book 1+2 were compact stories giving a certain positive view to the reader. May funny passages compensated the message of the non-ideal world in which Harry, too, lives. This is not the case with this book. Although twice as long, the passages are longwinded, without much fun, partly implausible. This book is even for adults tough. I cannot recommend this book for children, since albs are guaranteed. In contrast to the former books, Harry now escapes not because of luck AND his abilities, but only because the Bad (tm) now either wants too or makes big blunders. The last showdown with the impostor is like a cheap crime novel, in which the bad guy talks and talks till finally the police turns up at his back. I assume that Rowling overworks herself and wrecks her creativity and that her truely magnificent first books just needed time to grow. I also for the first time had the feeling that Rowling will write a long-breathed 7book-series, although she has blocked many future options for the story in book 4. After this book, I am sorry to say that I WAS a fan of Rowling. All parents, please read this book BEFORE you give it to your children (or don't buy it if that's still an alternative --))
