Classic story of the boy who lived.

The book is great read it a good few times, the cover is not the one I was hoping for, got the Canadian version of the book a little disappointed as I was hoping to collect all of the us versions. Wish they would have better advertising and explanations of which book you are getting.

Disappointed, ordered good, looks fair/acceptable, parts of paper spine missing and dust jacket is

Disappointed, ordered good, looks fair/acceptable, parts of paper spine missing and dust jacket is missing.

I got sent poor quality, not good

This is my rating for the Minalima edition, which I ordered in good condition and it came in awful condition. Thankfully the pages are good but the spine is weak and the cover/back are very loose. The outside is so damaged along the edges and on the corners. I’ve never had an issue with TB before so it’s not like I’m never coming back, just disappointed!

Cover torn

False.. hardback not in good condition. Cover torn almost in half.

Beautiful book….but

I purchased the collectors minalima edition, and ordered it “Like New.” Like New should not imply that there is spine damage/tearing to the book. For the price, I didn’t think it would have come like that. I definitely would have considered this to be good condition, far from “Like New”

False advertising

I should have looked closer. I thought I was getting the book pictured, which was printed the same time as the other books I have and I was sent the UK version. I wanted to get a matching set.


It came very fast and it looks almost like new

no dust jacket :(

I was pretty disappointed as the book arrived without dust jacket!! Wish this was clarified or mentioned somewhere in the listing

This was supposed to be a gift to start someone in this series.

I have gotten quite a few books from this site and not had any problems until now. This book was supposed to be like new but the corners are torn and the pages look stained I'm really disappointed.

Great job!

Book as advertised My daughter loves it Thank you!

Arrived damaged. Way past acceptable condition.:(

Very Disappointing

Purchased a “like new” hard cover copy but it came with NO JACKET. I’ll end up donating it…

I’ll end up donating it…Definitely not like new.

First time read.

Had seen all the films and decided to read the series. I like the little details of Harry's life so far and how he is becoming a more confident self. Like how Hogwarts is described. Dislike would be Draco Malfoy,.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Harry Potter is not a normal boy. He lives with the Dursley family after the deaths of his parents, Lily and James Potter. When he turns 11, he gets a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. When he meets Ron Weasley, and Hermoine Granger, and the Groundskeeper, Rubeus Hagrid, they become friends. During the first year, they fight a troll, and they form enemies, like Draco Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle. Soon Harry finds out that not all wizards are good; some are evil. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is a children's fantasy classic by British author J K Rowling. Read the novel, before seeing the movies.

so good

such a great read loved it

Was Captivated from the first page.

This started a craze for Harry Potter through my entire family. Excellent story that leaves you excited for the next book.

Beware if using this site to purchase gifts!!

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.


very good quality

God help me.

Twice now I ordered this hardcover and got 2 different levels of display. Both of them came without a dust cover and when I emailed them the first time they said my second order would have one. Nope.


I bought a like new copy and it came very folded front and back. It was blended in some parts of. The rest of the book is fine but it wasn’t what I payed for so it was a little stressful.


I ordered a "like new" copy, and it looked like new. All pages were intact, and it looks as if the book has never been opened. There were a few tears in the dust cover, but other than that, I think its a 10/10.

Was Not the book I ordered

I was supposed to get a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone but a totally different book was sent to me. My daughter, who thought she was about to read a book that was her 11th birthday present, was very disappointed when she showed me her book. It was a white hardback of another novel. I’m a Harry Potter fan and I know what the American Versions hardbacks are supposed to look like. This was the only book in my order that disappointed me.

False advertising ... No dust Jacket :(

False advertising ... No dust Jacket was included with the book purchase.. Must Read & Great book for kids above 8...


I ordered a Like New hardcover and the spine was broken and it arrived without a dust jacket. The only redeeming quality was that it was a good price.

Binding was completely ruined

My book was supposed to be “good” but it came with the binding not attached to the cover. I’m very disappointed. I have order many books from this website and this is the first real problem I have had!

Received my Harry Potter book and Literature Guide today. For the first time, I am disappointed. T

Rating is for story Not the "book" I received.

I have it already; great book 5 stars.

fantastic stories...

nice book and interesting stories..

More exciting to read as mother language!!

Of course, JKR's first book was the most eye-widening book among the 5 books (up till now) and it's more exciting to read in mother language as it takes time for a chinese to read an english book. (I guess there's no need for me to explain the greatness of the Rowling books) So lets go back to the translation. It's nice (but not great) as this edition is translated by Taiwanese which use lots of slang language which other Chinese-speaking people do not understand. So, personally, I would suggest the Simplied Chinese editon for nicer translation.

Wonderful Book!

The world of Harry Potter is magical and enthralling in any language. Many reviewers have criticized the omissions in translation. It should be noted that an accurate and interesting book cannot be translated to another language verbatim. Many bits of humor would be lost in unnatural descriptions. Instead, the translator appended when needed to make a sound linguistic and cultural switch. Enjoyable for Francophones and native english-speakers with good french reading abilities.

Viel Spass!

I read this in German before reading it in English. It's a lot of fun in both languages. In fact, it's great for improving one's skills in another tongue, because it's so enjoyable, you'll keep on reading. Taught me a lot of words that my German teachers never bothered with.
