The next volume in the thrilling, moving, bestselling Harry Potter series will reach readers June 21, 2003 -- and it's been worth the wait We could tell you, but then we'd have to Obliviate your memory.
I don't see anywhere in the description of the books that they came without dustjackets. Silly me for just assuming there was an illustration on the front cover...but that's what I saw in the pictures
Condition was not what was described. Frustrated.

I ordered the book in Very Good condition but it came in with Chinese notes written all over the pages. The spine was also about to rip apart. Despite very good condition meaning no writings marring the pages and should not look like its about to fall apart. I requested a return/refund but they offered to send a replacement book instead, this time in Like New condition. The book came in and lo and behold...it looked in even worse condition than the original and was missing the dust cover. I finally got my refund but now I'm stuck with 2 of the same thick books. Going back to Amazon.
Definitely not "like new"

missing dust jacket, which is very disappointing and then there is writing all over the pages. The spine of the book also looks beaten to hell. overall, very disappointed.
Payed $4 for a 1st edition?!
Published by J , 2 months ago
Upon arrival I was upset I payed $4 for a hardcover book that was deemed “very good” when I could feel the rod used for the binding broken through the dust jacket but when I checked out the publication it is legit a 1st ed. how crazy!!

Book came very damaged

Purchased book in very good condition. Everything about this book came damaged. Very dissapointed. I could leave a book with my 3 nephews for a year and they wouldn't damage the book as much as this book was damaged

I ordered the book in good condition. It didn't come with a book jacket. If it doesn't, it should have said something in the ordering. As I read other people's review they had the same concern. I would recommend letting the readers know that there is no jacket for this book.
Mangy ol’ halfblood!

The thing I like about the Harry Potter franchise is it is as light or as deep as you need it to be. So, if you need it to be about a boy who goes to school and learns magic and fights bad guys, then this is the series for you. But if you need it to be a series of war, politics, love and loss, and rebellion, then again, this is the series for you.
Order of the Phoenix is the first book in the franchise where Harry really gets to “step off the farm”. His world beyond Hogwarts expands, and he starts learning the true definition of family and trust.
Oh, and if you are a fan of villains, Dolores Umbridge will be your newest love-hate character.

I cant complain too much because it was so cheap, but i ordered “good condition” not expecting too much. but several
pages are unreadable. The ink is basically gone and huge chunks of chapters are invisible. Wish it was better, but it’s not brand new so i guess it’s fine
No dust cover
Published by Disappointed , 1 year ago
I would not have bought it if I knew it would come without dust cover and the corners and in bad shape. Some of the pages were bent. I’m sad about the condition.
Lack of quality control
Published by JKaye , 1 year ago
No where does it say that very good condition shouldn't have dust jacket. Out of the seven harry potter books I bought only 2 were in good condition and with jackets. This one the binding was coming apart and it was supposed to be very good condition.
I've bought close to 40 books from this site and this is the first time I have been at all disappointed. And I am very disappointed
Not as described
Published by Nikki , 1 year ago
HORRIBLE it said this book was "like new" but maybe they meant new 10 years ago. The book spine is totally ripped in half and pages are falling out. Very disappointed.

I ordered the hardback good condition book and it didn't have the dust jacket and doesn't not state it on here that it is missing. Please update the status.

I got my moneys worth
Published by Amberly , 1 year ago
I ordered a hardcover in good condition. It came without a dust jacket and the corners are a bit beaten up, but the pages and binding seem to be intact. Considering I only spent about five dollars on it, I would say it is worth my money.
Love the book but BEWARE if you are buying from here for collections or gifts!!
Published by Kryptangel20 , 1 year ago
I hate to be this way but I used this site to get these books for my daughters birthday. Maybe it states somewhere that you are not guaranteed what is pictured but I believed the book would at least have the dust jacket! It was the WHOLE point of buying it here. Just made me sad because I couldn't give her the full set like I hoped and now will most likely donate this book because it isn't what I wanted, so I'm out that money.
Love the Harry Potter books

Very disappointed that the book was missing the book jacket . This was never disclosed when ordering. Two other books from the series were ordered the at same time and they arrived in perfect condition

good condition for an ‘acceptable’ book
No Book Sleeve
Published by Raquel , 2 years ago
It was supposed to be a “good quality” and it came with no book sleeve which it did NOT indicate that it will come with no book sleeve, had to repurchase through eBay which came out better price and condition.
Condition of book as described by seller!!
Published by FlirtyBird65 , 2 years ago
This book was bought for my grandson who has just discovered Harry Potter. Third generation J.K. Rowling reader!! The older generations are selfish and not willing to pass down their original books, lol. We are currently building his collection.
Published by Not acceptable , 2 years ago
I don't believe that this is in acceptable condition, I wouldn't have included it in inventory for purchasing. I ordered The Deathly Hallows in acceptable and it was in okay condition, this one was torn, the cover is torn and it's in horrible condition, I regret ordering this one due to the condition. There wasn't a good condition available at the time of ordering and I don't consider this as acceptable.

No dust jacket
Published by Derek Zhu , 2 years ago
Despite the lack of information regarding dust jackets and the dust jacket the book came without, the book itself was in great condition. I would be hesitant about buying the hardcover version.

Just received this book and was pretty disappointed by the quality. I ordered it as "like new" but the book was missing its dust covered and had some ware which if I new I probably would not have purchased this copy unfortunately.
Was only okay as a gift
Published by Ciara A , 3 years ago
I bought this book as a gift for a little girl on my churches angel tree, so her guardian had gifts to give her for Christmas. She requested the last 6 of the Harry Potter series. This one was in the roughest shape of the 6, which was sort of anticipated as I ordered an acceptable version. The over and pages were very torn and bent and was much harder to pass off as new, unlike the other books
Published by Buyer , 3 years ago
The copy I received starts on chapter 20. It looks like a poor copy of the original, even has another language on the inside cover.
Book was in ok condition but was very disappointed that it did not come with the dust jacket. Now go

Beware: condition of hardbacks
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 3 years ago
We purchased a copy in "Good" condition. It arrived with a separated, broken spine. Quite disappointed as ThiftBooks has always been very meticulous about the book conditions we receive.
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 4 years ago
Ordered hardcover in 'Good Condition and received it with dirt and spider webs on it...not sure if cleaning this off would have cost extra...not impressed, but you get what you pay for.
WOW. JK is like an awesome writer!

I can't wait to read the sixth book! I want to know who the half blood prince is! I pre-ordered a book to come in July some time, and I'm looking forward to reading it! The 5th book was sooo good! I've read it like five times now! I can't wait for more! I was kind of sad when my favorite character died though! But there was whispering behind the veil, so hopefully he's still alive! I have a feeling Dumbledore is going to die in the next book, probably to save Harry or something...

Another dose of magic from the world of Harry Potter
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 19 years ago
We should all now be familiar with the story of Harry Potter (especially if you are reading The Order of the Phoenix), so there isn't much of a reason for a backstory. Harry's adventures have already kept us entertained over the span of four books and now, in the fifth chapter, the most intricate story is given. In "Order" Harry emerges as a very angry youth, he expresses rage towards the Dursleys, his friends, teachers, and the adults he holds in high regard. An event occurring in the Muggle world causes Harry to become involved in the Wizarding government who soon decides to put their hands into Hogwarts business. Knowing Harry, much adventure and mystery does await his next year at Hogwarts and Order of the Phoenix doesn't let you down. You're given the romance, action, mystery, and tragedy. But this doesn't mean the novel isn't filled with fun (the Weasley brothers Fred and George take care of that). The most heinous of all characters (possibly even worse than Voldemort) comes from one of the new additions to the Hogwarts staff. All of this isn't helped because Harry and his fellow fifth years also have to deal with their exhausting O.W.L.s. But don't let the 800+ pages get you down, you will become so involved you won't notice how fast the pages turn. All leading up to an amazing climax that will definitly leave you begging for more. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix follows the usual Rowling formula-each new book is better than the next-and you will find yourself dazzled. So when does the sixth one come out?
