Hardback book

I got this in good condition hardback book however it does not state it is missing the dust jacket. Please update status.

Not what I was expecting

I ordered this book in Good condition for my mom to complete her series in hardback. The bottom corner of the book and dust jacket looks like it has been bitten off, and the dust jacket is ripped. This is not what the condition description is and I am not happy about it.

I opened the book to find it was missing pages

I was very excited to read this book but quickly realized it came with torn out pages. It was completely missing pages 163-206. What a bummer.

False advertising

No dust jacket and tattered though I ordered “Like New”

Perfect condition


Came as expected

Matched the descprition perfectly.

Severe Staining

Listed as good condition--severe staining all over the book! That is not what I would consider good.

Great prices and Great quality !

- I loved the book, Harry Potter is a classic series! The quality of the book is also great and for the price.

Item not as listed

This book was supposed to be hard cover, and it arrived paperback.

No Dust Jacket!

I usually don't complain, especially over $4 books, but I was only buying the book FOR the dust jacket and it wasn't included. I wasn't going to write a review but the second part of my order, book 4, came with the dust jacket to book 5. Any other series I would highly recommend thritbooks, but if you're looking for exactly what you ordered, there's just too many used editions of Harry Potter to risk it in my opinion.

Not as described

I was very disappointed with this book. The condition was suppose to be like new and it is not even close. The first 50 pages of the book are falling out completely.... they are not even attached to the rest of the book. There is also marker on the cover :/

False advertising

The book did not arrive with dust cover. I’m not too upset since I had enough points for a ‘free book’ and did not have to pay for this one, but it is frustrating because I now have to search for a dust cover or buy a new book later on to look nice on my book shelf.

book condition

sorry to say i received a broken book. the front cover with various pages were ripped looks like it got mushed by a heavy object probably happened during delivery have a few other books with similar damages


exactly how it was advertised

False advertising

Said it was in very good condition but arrived without a dust jacket and did not have it noted. I wish I would’ve known, I wouldn’t have purchased

Not represented well

I received my book that was supposed to be in very good condition. It has no jacket cover. The spine of the book has water stains down the entirity of the spine. I bought this to replace a paperback, which frankly is in better condition. Based on other reviews this seller clearly has a false view of the difference between acceptable, good, and very good.

No Dust Jacket

Very Unhappy With This Purchase! No Dust Jacket! I Wouldn't Have Bought It If I Had Known!

Wrong Edition

The version of the book showing is the US edition. I received the UK edition. This wouldn't have mattered if the US edition wasn't needed to put a specially made cover over it. False advertising.

No dust jacket. I order pretty often and this was the first time I'm not to happy. Please make sure

No dust jacket. I order pretty often and this was the first time I'm not to happy. Please make sure you put no dust jacket if you're sending a book without one.

Facility would not accept the book, unknown substance on it. Damaged.

Great book if it wasn't damaged.

Missing Dust Jacket

I ordered this book in “very good condition” but it came without the dust jacket. I ordered two other HP books and those were perfect. My books were stolen so this was already a bummer. I emailed customer service just now. I’ll try to update once I hear back.

False advertising ... No dust Jacket :(

False advertising ... No dust Jacket was included with the book..

Listed as Like new.....a chunk is missing from the cover

Ordered this book in Like New condition but when it came its barely acceptable. Yes it came with the book jacket but it looks lke someone took a literal bite out of the cover and book jacket. A chunk and the binding is is this Like new ?? very unhappy

No Dustcover

The book was in "Good" condition; however, it showed up without the dust cover and that was not indicated.

Not in the condition ordered.

I ordered this book in good condition which states pages being intact but when I received the book pages are hanging out from being tapped back into the book.

I will always love this book

I love the whole series. Definitely a permanent resident on my bookshelf.

I have it; a great book.

Brilliant as Ever

J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is an exciting fairytale about a boy named Harry Potter. Harry grows up with his aunt and uncle on Privet Drive. He has never known his parents because the most feared and powerful wizard, Lord Voldimort, murdered them. As Harry grows up he receives a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. At Hogwarts Harry meets his two best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Ron is a red haired, freckled faced boy who wishes he could have a glimpse of Harry's fame and glory. While on the other hand Hermoine is a bushy brown haired, know-it-all girl who could answer any question you throw at her. As Harry progressed to his third year at Hogwarts he encounters many mysterious visits from a "Grim". Althought Harry isn't scared of the "Grim", he can't help feeling that he is being followed by it. Throughout this book Harry and his friends encounter many different obstacles dealing with death and putting their lives on the line with danger to save their schoolmates and their school. To find out what happens to Harry, Ron, and Hermione as they fallow the mysterious "Grim", you must read this exciting page-turner. J.K. Rowling's style of writing differs from other books. She uses a gigantic variety of words and also adds in some British words to add style and character to her books. All of her exotic words describe the many different details about Hogwarts, what the different characters look like, what their expression is, and what they are doing. As you read this book you will find yourself imagining a film running through your head because of J.K. Rowling's use of colorful words.

A great book!

Harry potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is a great book! I enjoied it very much in spanish. Harry Potter is once again having many adventures, but one could cost his live. Who will help him with his troubles, what obsticles will he meet, but most important will he come out alive? They only way to find out, is to read this facinating book! Now people of all languages can enjoy all books in the HARRY POTTER seires!

The best Harry Potter book prior to July 8, 2000

Boy was this an excellent book. I read the entire series in the span of a month (I would have read them quicker if I hadn't had school). I am 17, but this book is as enjoyable to me as it must be to the supposed "target age group" of 10 year olds. I loved the first two novels of Harry Potter as well, but this was the best. In the 1st book, we are introduced to all the characters, and in the second the characters are developed. By the third book, we are all used to the characters, so they're personalities really flourish, creating a great story. Meeting James Potter's old friends help us learn more of his fate surrounding his death and why Sirius Black is imprisoned, which develop the story to its fullest. Adding characters like Lupin and Black make for good reading. I can't wait to read the next one.

A Book to Get your Kids to Read!

I am the mother of three children as well as a teacher. My 10 yr old son hated to read. We started reading the first Harry Potter book when it came out and he was hooked. We read a couple of chapters together whenever we could. We are still reading #2 2gether, but I read on ahead and let me tell you, #3 is the BEST! I have read it twice alone and can't wait to get to it with my son. These books have made a reader out of my son and we enjoy reading them together. The characters are wonderful and the action is addicting. All the students that I read these books with also love Harry. The Harry Potter series is a parent and teacher's dream! We just can't wait for #4. My daughters' are 4 and 7 and these books are still a little over both of their heads. But for kids 10 and up, Harry is a hit.

Time-Travel Treasures
Published by Karen DeGroot Carter • October 26, 2020

Good stories often provide welcome escapes from life's challenges, and those that also allow us to slip into the past or jump into the future can be especially welcome in exasperating times. While a pop classic like the movie Back to the Future is an obvious choice for a fun, time-bending adventure, and holiday favorites such as Groundhog Day and A Christmas Carol also toy with time in unique ways, many other books and movies effectively explore the power and impact of time travel as well.
