never read one before...
on February 24, 2008
I bought the box set just before Christmas, and ended up reading all seven books within only two months. The series is thought out quite well, and made as much (if not more) for adults than children. Plots are well-developed, life lessons can be learned, and Rowlings has a talent for making social commentaries through her stories. My love for reading was reawakened by escaping into the world of Hogwarts, and my imagination has found its way back into my life. The books truly put the movies to shame, and I think anyone could enjoy this set as much as I have. This would be a great investment for anyone that wants to have a set of these books for their children.
