Darker, more intense than #1 and #2--combined. A true must-read.   (2011-09-20)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban reveals another major character: Sirius Black, a character convicted of a magical murder...and who has a mysterious, close connection with Harry himself.  This is much darker than #1 and #2, and much better, even.  Even more truths are uncovered....

After the first book, I wasn't convinced. I've met many others who felt the same way, many of whom dropped the series then and there. If you feel that way, don't. Give it another shot. Rowling grows as a storyteller. Book two is much better and by book three you won't want to put them down until the...

Just like the cover, the inside of this book bursts with color and designs, and yet the busyness is orderly and tells a picture.  You can go back and look at the backgrounds and think about it over and over.  You are sure to see something...

        这本书是哈利波特系列的最后一本,所有的谜团都被揭开,所有的战斗都有了结局,所有人都有了一个适合他们的归宿,记得当初看的时候花了三天就看完了,纵使有那么多的不舍,但不得不佩服JK.Rowling叙述故事的能力,扣人心弦,滴水不漏,当然最让人佩服的是她天马行空的想象力。我们这一代和哈利一同成长,一同经历各种成长中的快乐和伤痛,所以这是一本特别有共鸣的书,我永远都会是哈利波特系列的忠实粉丝。

An excellent, highly readable account of the expedition. Ambrose writes in a clear, interesting prose style that moves quickly and doesn't bog down in excessive detail, ideal for a popular history.

The Hunger Games was a good way to start a trilogy, and it was intriguing and thrilling, but once I got into it, I realized it was beginning to get a little boring, and the plot was a little too complex for my mind to handle (my motivation, in vain, was, "It's a freaking book.  You can...

Not as much mythology, just as much brilliance as #1.   (2011-09-20)

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the first obviously called for (by the final chapter of #1, that is), is just as brilliant, slightly less engaging, a little more original than Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.  Some of the stuff we wondered (or at least should have...

Voldemort (you know, the dark, creepy wizard that gives the series a plot--without spoiling anything, anyway) is rising in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a much darker, much more magical sequel to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.  This is precisely twice...

Extraordinary secrets are revealed in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince--not the good, the bad, and the ugly; but rather the spectacular, the sad, and the spectacularly sad/sadly spectacular.  I won't give anything away--if you read it, you'll understand how hard it is, even...

This long-awaited, final volume in the wildly-popular Harry Potter series is short on neither pages nor adventure.  Nearly all our questions are answered, and many more are raised, pointing to potential future volumes (and revenue streams) for author J.K. Rowling.  There is so much history...

I thought that this book was phenomenal!!!! Although some peole may complain of the lack of action or motion foward in the middle of the book, I believed that part to be very telling of the different aspects of the three principle characters.
