Our customer reviews
I just got mine, ordered it two weeks ago. It arrived on time and in a fairly good condition. The book is really big, especially at first glance. I was expecting something big and a bit heavy but this one surpassed my expectations. All and all I like it a lot, tons of information, lots to read and see and things to get excited about. Interviews with the cast, rare photos from the scenes that you probably won't find anywhere, concept art (which I ADORE!!) and overall, the book is really a high quality book, with glossy finished pages and some nice hardback cover. It contains BIG pictures, fully colored and they all look fantastic. you'll have to rest it on something while you read cause it's quite heavy, but trust me, it's worth it. I recommend it to every die hard harry potter fan, go and get it for yourself. If you like the harry potter franchise but you're not that big potterhead, buy "film wizardry", it's more suited for the softcore potter fan base, and it isn't as expensive (tho I would've buy this one for any price) 10/10 from me.show moreby Mike (the situation)
Though this book is less interactive than Film Wizardary and doesn't contain any removable bits and pieces, it provides the reader with a wonderful insight to the world of the Harry Potter films. Its more suited for teenagers, or young adults - rather than young children. Containing beautiful photos, descriptions of characters and sketches of many sites within the movie, Harry Potter: Page to Screen is a wonderful book, and I would recommend it for any avid Harry Potter reader/watcher like myself.show moreby Christine
