I expected it to take some time before I could buy the books. However, a very nice person posted on the price drops forum that not only was a couple collection available now, but was being offered at a ridiculously low price. I quickly one-clicked and did my happy dance.
I love having all of the books in one collection, and as others have noted, it has easy navigation and all of the illustrations are included; there were no shortcuts taken with this set. The set is no longer fifteen dollars, but my review is based on content and not price. The sale price was just a serendipitous occurrence, but even at full price, the collection is good value for money.
I can see people being disappointed and upset because they missed the sale, but that is no reason to give the books a bad review. The regular price is not out of line with what books by other popular authors cost. Besides, thousands of books have price drops every day, some lasting only a couple of hours. I have several ways in which I track book prices, but still, I have missed sales on books I wanted; it is no one's fault.
I have the unusual experience of not having read these as a kid. My first experience with Harry Potter comes as an adult. (I haven't seen the movies either) And I can confidently say I really didn't know what I was missing. Even as an adult I found these books highly entertaining and enthralling. Being that I may be the one guy in 2017 who didn't know ANYTHING about the story prior to reading it. (except the 3 main character's names) I was able to go into it blind and I couldn't stop reading. I read at work, home, on the train, at restaurants almost every spare moment I had. I slammed through all 7 books in about 2 weeks. Loved it. I will gladly revisit these books in the future.
Well, I'm glad I bought it. I'm on book 5 right now and it's amazingly good.
I really like Rowling's writing style. The pace and overall "feel" of the series reminds me very much of good old Lord of the Rings. It's got just the right mix of action, dialogue, intrigue and suspense to make it hard to put down once you've picked it up. The characters are detailed and interesting and I feel a real investment in where the story is heading next.
The invention of "Quidditch" was brilliant, as well. It's basically a vehicle for the characters to display more qualities and social interactions in an aggressive setting without constantly putting the characters in truely dangerous situations (which makes it that much more edge-of-your-seat when the characters DO get into truely dangerous situations). Basically, it's school sports, but "football" wouldn't make much sense at a wizarding school, so Rowling invented a wizard sport that helps get across all the character interaction that a good sport tends to deliver.
Anyway, I'm in my 30's, a old school fan of the genre ever since I had read "The Hobbit" as a kid of possibly single digit age and this series belongs on my shelf right up there with the best of them. You're doing yourself a disservice if you aren't reading them simply because you think you're too far above the age of the target audience.
