For Harry Potter fans who appreciate J.K.R. writing skills

I'm not a Harry Potter fanatic; I just like the books and the movies (and the actors and the author and the characters and the plot...)This book was a great guide for hidden clues, plot predictions (Divination for books?) and "I-didn't-think-of-that"s. If that's what you're looking for, then this is perfect for you. But if you want the absolute facts, you might want to wait for J.K.R.'s own guide. Sometimes what you infer from this book can sound outrageous (Lily Potter a Slytherin? Lily's related to Dumbledore?)and sometimes the author goes of on tangents about a tiny insignificant clue (or so we think), but the rest are based on evidence carefuly gathered from the books and J.K.R.'s interviews. A note: This book covers books 1-4 only. The "New Clues" book is for book 5 and is a hints only guide (it doesn't tell you exactly what the clues mean). I bought both and think it was well worth the money, but this is something to keep in mind. All in all, this book and its companion are a must for every semi-serious to serious HP fan.

The True Revealer

If you shop around for books on the Harry Potter series, you will find information on the names, creatures, classes, and places used in the book. This guide, however, provides an analysis of the mysteries within the novels in adittion to providing interesting facts. It points out all the subtle hints and guides that JKR so cleverly places in the tale. Using details from the book and information released by the author herself, Galadriel Waters provides us with the questions we need to be asking ourselves as we read the series. It even includes a restricted section containing theories as to what will happen later on and even as to how it will all end. This book is especially useful for those who have not yet read, or are still reading the series, as it does not reveal anything in advanced, but helps the reader solve the mystery him/herself.Overall an amazing read, a real guide, and well worth the price.

Excellent, Simply Excellent

I got a tip on this book from a Harry Potter website and ordered it up immediately. It is a comprehensive analysis of the first 4 books in the HP series, chapter by chapter and sometimes paragraph by paragraph. The authors have cross referenced all the hints and clues they note in each book and build these clues and hints into their predictions for what's coming in books 5 - 7. A unique and thorough review of all 4 books and a must read to get ready for the release of Order of the Phoenix in June. 5 stars in a walk!


This book is a must read for any Harry Potter fan. It has only enhanced the enjoyment I receive when reading the Harry Potter books and has me even more curious and excited about the future of the series. It is in a well organized format and the author has a delightful sense of humor. I can't say enough wonderful things about this book, you must read it to appreciate it.

Ultimate Unofficial Guide is the ULTIMATE BEST!!!

This book was not only entertaining, thorough, and humorous, it gave me a deeper and greater appreciation for the complexity of JK Rowlings' writing. It highlights clues that are carefully planted within the chapters and alerts HP sleuths on what to watch for when reading the Harry Potter books.IMO, it was worth every bronze knut I paid for it! A MUST have for the true Harry Potter fan.
