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.
Admittedly, I was very surprised. The books are printed on high quality paper. They are the hardcovers (not first edition no) but wonderful nonetheless. Very sturdy books indeed, these will last for generations if cared for. The quality is far superior than other hardcover books I've purchased as of late -- my preferred medium for books by my favorite authors.
The box itself is very sturdy. You have to work to crush it; it's cardboard after all. The illustrations on the sides makes one proud to display it. The box supports the books, as opposed to cheaper, flimsier boxed sets where the books support the box.
The icing on the cake was that mine came with two limited edition bookmarks, which really was thoughtful. I bought this from Amazon on November 29, 2001, so I don't know if ALL the boxed sets at the time of this reveiw contain them. However, this was a nice touch I wish all book sets would include, since with hardcovers of high-quality, you do NOT want to dog-ear the pages. It's lovely to have a set of bookmarks to keep with the tomes, as it enhances the value greatly of having the entire set match.
All-in-all, a great buy for great value. If you need the Harry Potter books, definetly get them in this set if you can help it at all.
The book Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling is set at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This setting is very believable. I felt like I was the school with Ron, Harry, and Hermione. There was a large array of description and sensory detail. That is one of the reasons I love this book.
The climax and Resolution were very good and surprising. J. K. Rowling did a very good job at writing a book where one would expect an outcome but the total opposite. This was yet another one of the reason why Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is one of my favorite books.
The story paced at a perfect speed. It was not too fast or too slow and left me hanging at a point where I wanted to read the 3rd book. I was able to read this book in 3 days and I was hooked to the story line.
Overall, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling is a very well written book. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy, doesn't necessarily love to read, and people who read the first book of the Harry Potter series.
