I was so excited to receive this box set and when it arrived i was not disappointed at all! The art work is beautiful and each cover fits perfectly with the story. When i first ordered these books i thought that the book covers would be shiny but they aren't, they are what I would call matte. Which is definitely better, it was totally worth the price. The only thing that annoys me is that because these books are printed in america the first book is 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone' instead of 'Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone' I still don't understand why the Americans had to change it since calling it the philosopher's stone makes more sense, but anyway what can you do? I can't wait to read these books.show more

@Jill Please educate yourself, the book is called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in US. Even the first movie is called the same. Scholastic is the US publisher of the book. Bloomsbury is the UK publisher of the book. You bought the US version. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Potter_and_the_Philosopher%27s_Stoneshow more

Can anyone explain to me why the first book in this box set is titled "Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone" and not "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" like every other edition I can find? The 'sorcerer's stone' is referenced throughout the text also. Very disappointing if this is a poor translation that has not been corrected throughout an entire book. My 6 year old noticed this anomaly within 1 minute of us opening the box. Is this why the set is discounted??show more

i just received mine! i was so excited for this. the box set arrived in a very good condition, so no problem there. the beautiful illustrations by kazu kibushi are amazing, they're probably the main reason why i bought this box set. rich colors, beautiful art, everything looks 'magical', he really cached the spirit of the series, and for that i'm thankful. it might be a little bit pricy, but it's definitely worth it, trust me. i'm not a huge fan of a paperback based books, but since the books are so light and easy to hold, i'd consider it a plus. overall, great experience and great service from 'the book depository', i'll continue to shop here and i recommend you all to do the same! thanks again.show more

As soon as this box-set was announced, I had to pre-order it. The all new artwork covers are beautifully well designed by Kazu Kibuishi. The collection comes with all seven books in paperback and a box to keep them safe in. For detailed review follow this link (more videos to be uploaded shortly) LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAVd1impf9Q Any true Harry Potter book fan should buy this (if they can) it is a little pricey for seven books you most likely already own, however in my opinion it is worth it. I am giving this boxset 5/5 for its beautiful artwork.show more
