I loved this book, I am currently getting into the Harry Potter series. My best friend recommended this to me and I’m so happy I’m reading it. J.k Rowling’s books are so inspiring and descriptive. I forget time and space is still a thing when I’m reading. I also thoroughly enjoy the movies but it’s sad how they’re shorter then the books, as you can’t fit 600 pages into two hours. I’m currently 100 pages away from finishing and the books amazing so far! ( no spoilers! ) - A person who reads

First of all. A point. I'm aware of the recent controversy surrounding JK Rowling's opinions. This review is NOT about the moral debate over how she feels about the validity of LGBT identities. This is about the book, and the book only.
My daughter has ALL the Harry Potter Illustrated books. She loves them, and I can see why. The print quality is excellent, the cover art beautiful and the package as a whole is a high quality item that gives the reader a different experience to the paperbacks. The artist has done a fantastic job of bringing Rowling's characters and settings to life. It all looks good and fits well with the story. One thing I should warn you about is that this is a large, heavy book and will probably be reserved for reading at home. It's NOT the sort of thing you could take on the train and read. It's also worth noting that bringing out the next edition of the illustrated books takes a LONG time. This one took much longer than the last one and 'Order of the Phoenix' is an even longer book. If you're hoping to collect the whole Harry Potter series in illustrated form you are probably in for a long wait. I'd estimate you'll have to wait until at least 2028, probably 2030 before you can complete the set. There's also the risk that at some point the financial value of printing these won't be there. So you could try and collect them, but find at the end you only have half an illustrated set. The book on it's own merit though, will be loved by kids and adult Potter fans alike. It'd make a great Christmas or birthday present, and might encourage a fan who read the paperback to read the story again.
Well, this is now the fourth audio book of the series I've purchased. My four children have all read the Harry Potter books but a couple of years ago I discovered the audio books of the stories, read by the legend that is Stephen Fry. Quite simply, brilliant. I've used the audio books on long car journeys to ensure peace and quiet for hours on end! My wife, who hasn't read the books, is also hooked. Just one problem; the day is coming when I'll have to write on an insurance claim form that the reason I drove into the back of Car A in front was I was distracted by Ron Weasley's masterful putdown of Malfoy or laughing at the Weasley's twins latest antics. I've had a few near misses. The latest book (Goblet of Fire) got us from Birmingham to Gatwick, then came with us to Florida where all car journeys were accompanied by Fry's mellifluous tones, then back home again. All in a harmonious car - even when jet lagged. We're on disk 12 of 17 now. It may cost nearly 50 quid but you get 24 hours of entertainment. My youngest son (aged 10) is listening to the earlier books in his room now which also gives us some quality tranquility. I foresee audio book 5 will be required later this year... We've long listened to stories in the car and there are many very good stories out there but Stephen Fry reading JK Rowling is the best of the bunch.
I am a HP fan and Rowling's fourth book is a blast. Also a great price for a 700 page book. Been reading these books since mum gave it to me. At first scared just because one of the movies were a bit scary but now read and watch at the same time!!!! Highly recommend for everyone who likes fantasy and adveture books. Also keep reading these books to improve your vocab! Great book and a well known classic!
Another great story in the Harry Potter collection by J.K. Rowling. Can't say much that anyone reading this hasn't already read before, it's not my favourite book in the anthology, but it's a bloody good read.
I've only read 5 of the Harry Potter book series so far, but I would definitely recommend reading them. J.K. Rowling is an astonishing writer and what I love most about the way she writes is the way she makes the characters relatable, for example, Harry Potter is not a perfect person, he has many flaws, even though so far in the books I've read he's been the hero and saved the day...so yeah I would definitely recommend reading the Harry Potter books!!!!
Harry Potter and the goblet of fire review Author-J.K Rowling This book is in the Harry Potter series so people would be a fan of this book . This book shows how the Triwizard tournament is held at Hogwarts and Harry , though underage gets selected for the tournament. There are many interesting parts in this book but the most interesting part I found was , when Barty Crouch Jr. told the truth about how he entered Hogwarts and explained that how he escaped Azkaban,under the trance of Veritaserum (the truth potion). The most horrifying part was when Cedric died and when Voldemort got his body back. The funniest part was when Lavender and Parvati started laughing at the mention of the Yule Ball by Professor Mcgonagall. My overal opinion: It's quite positive. This is also my favourite book in the Harry Potter series till now.It is just totally fantastic.I give this book five out of five stars.Harshit Gupta
Unlike most others I am reading Harry Potter for the first time now and AFTER watching the films. I really must say that TGOF is by far the best book in the series so far. I have since read up to TOOTP but this is still head and shoulders above the rest. Rowling's descriptive narrative has deepened and become far more enriched with colour. The characters also come into their own and are far more alive here than ever. Harry's on strength is also explained in more detail here which helps the reader understand just why he has been able to do what he has done and survived a would be fatal attack. His tapestry of experiences is also beautifully varied with the scenes Rowling sets equally so.
A longer, better, stronger, at least as fun, Harry Potter book, with more excitement, another puzzle, and a little more revelation fo why Harry is so special in the world of magic. Voldemort himself makes a much stronger appearance in this book than he has before, and his battle with Harry is as tense to read as Harry's bit of trouble with the basilisk in the "Chamber of Secrets". Harry, Ron, Hermione and friends seem to be growing up a little quicker than they ought with the timing of the books ~ in fact, one of the few complaints i had about "Goblet" is that Harry seems to vary in age from thirteen to fifteen, in rather uncertain fashion, within the single year the book encompasses. Certainly the preoccupations of teenage years, most especially the opposite gender, have taken a more prominent position in this book than previously. Once again, Rowling's characters are, within their world, entirely believable in their actions and reactions, both as predictable and unpredictable as real people, and this is, for me, the truest test of a book. Unlike many other fads and must-haves ~ Pokémon springs to mind ~ the latest Harry Potter book is worth all the kerfuffle and fuss it has caused.
