Format: Paperback
I, like many other people, used to dislike Harry Potter. I had never actually read the books, but for some reason looked down on Potter fans, thinking them to be a bit off color. I was certain that the whole thing was highly overrated and that it had been blown way out of proportion (like Twilight).

I could not have been more wrong. I finally read the books at the continuous urging of a friend in my junior year of high school, and they have become my favorite books of all time. I have already reread all seven books and stood in line for hours to see the midnight premiere of the newest movie.

When is the last time you have read a book and instantly wanted to pick it up and read it again? It doesn't happen often.

I can't even begin to tell you how incredible these books are. Not only are they very entertaining, but they are filled with the important themes of good vs. evil, the power of love, and the value of good choices. The characters in this book have become part of my life.

If you are at all hesitant to read this series because of its classification as a 'fantasy' series, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. Yes, the book is about wizards and magic, but you would be shocked at how quickly the story pulls you in.

I can only ask you to PLEASE read the first book. If you like it, keep reading. If you don't, keep reading. The books get better as they progress, and I feel that the final chapters of the last book are some of the best reading I have ever done.

Also, do not judge these books from the movies. Everybody knows that the book is always better than the movie, and it's the same case here. The movies are great, but you need to read the books to fully appreciate what's happening and become a true Potter fan.

--------- UPDATE - JANUARY 31, 2015 ---------

Harry Potter is still awesome.

I totally expected the "chest" to be made out of cardboard. I expected it to not be an expensive piece of artwork. I expected to get 7 books, some related stickers and a case to put them in.

I got exactly what I expected. And I couldn't be happier.

Applying for the amazon visa (and getting $30 off of this purchase) made this buy an excellent one!

I agree with everyone who has written a review saying that this boxed set was VERY misleading in presentation. This is a given. The publishers should have made a stronger cardboard box, included felt in the lining of the box, and should have downright made the box out of wood or leather. This incredible seven book series deserves the highest quality of workmanship and we, as the loyal fans, deserve the best offer and the finest quality of product. We deserve the publisher's respect, as well. They should be ashamed of themselves.

If you are buying this set because you already have the books and want to get newer versions of them and are focusing moreso on the collector's box to house all of the books and keep them pristine, I recommend that you DO NOT buy this particular set. It is in no way up to standard and the box is very misleading as a "collector's" item.

However, if you are like me and this is your first set of these books and want a fabulous deal on all seven of the hardcover books, which averages out to $17.00 a book, then you might want to think twice.

Here is what I am doing with the cardboard box that they give you. I took out the inner cardboard box that the books are already placed in and I am housing the books inside of there on my bookshelf. The main portion of the box (or trunk) I am using to house all of my Harry Potter DVDs and any other collectables I might have so that they are all kept together in one place. The stickers that they give you can be used on all four corners to cover the gaps of the cardboard that they didn't do themselves. You could put all four house stickers on each corner side.

So, if you want this set solely as a collector's item, don't get it. Wait for another version to come out. If you are mainly focusing on the great deal on the hardcover books and not the box, you might want to go ahead with this offer.

Format: Hardcover
When these books were "translated" into American English, the Briticisms were edited out. If you go searching for the original English versions (the ones printed by Bloomsbury, where "Sorcerer's Stone," is called "Philosopher's Stone"), you'll get the original version of the text. For example, in chapter 1 of the first book, in the UK version Dudley's new favorite word is "Shan't," whereas in the US version it is "Won't." The differences seem to be relatively minor, from what I've read so far.

But the physical BOOKS are very different in the UK version. They are much smaller, and lighter. Looking at the front cover, the Bloomsbury (UK) books are a full 1 inch narrower, and 1.25 inches shorter. This cuts down the volume of paper (weight) significantly. They feel nice to hold in your hand. The margins are narrower, and there isn't as much wasted space between lines as in the US versions. The text is still a comfortable size for reading -- it's not squished. The paper has more texture. I'm not sure how the acid content compares, I wish I knew. Looks to be good paper, and the cover page said it is all recyclable and made from sustainable forests.

US hardbacks these days almost always have cloth only at the spine, and then the rest of the cover is wrapped with paper. That means that when you take the slip-cover off, the book is no longer aesthetically pleasing. With the Bloomsbury (UK) books, the whole cover is a cloth finish -- I believe it is a tough paper, pretending to be cloth. But again, it has a very nice "feel." When you take the slip cover off to read, the book feels friendly and good in your hand. The title on the spine is printed in gold, embossed in. Aesthetically much nicer than the US versions.
