Description

Product Description

Award-winning artist Jim Kay illustrates year two of Harry Potter''s adventures at Hogwarts, in a stunning, gift-ready format.

The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he''s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.And strike it does. For in Harry''s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls'' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley''s younger sister, Ginny.But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone -- or something -- starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects... Harry Potter himself?

The Chamber of Secrets is in my opinion the weakest of the Harry Potter books. Still, it is a great read compared to 90% of other books in general, and 99% of other children''s fantasy novels. The art in these books are simply amazing. They add to the story subtly, rather than take the story over as the movies did. To me, this is vital, as part of the joy of the Harry Potter world is the evocation of your imagination. I am happy to give my kids a little push with art, as they clearly still create their own images of quidditch, Hagrid, and the often explosive and unexpected effects of Ron''s broken wand.

IMPORTANT: For U.S. customers purchasing the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, you will notice the text has NOT been converted to the "Americanized" version of the original U.S. releases. This difference isn''t as prominent or noticeable as it was with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer''s/Philosopher''s Stone, but still something to keep in mind. Also, to answer a question that has come up quite a bit, this is the FULL BOOK and not an abridged or shortened version.

The overall quality is fantastic. The colors are vibrant and the images are, in my opinion, even better than those in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer''s Stone: The Illustrated Edition (Harry Potter, Book 1).

The best features:
1. Underneath the book jacket, the novel is bound in a sturdy orange hardback with green lettering on the spine.
2. The paper is thick with an eggshell glossy finish.
3. All chapter intros are illustrated.
4. Some images take up full pages or multiple pages. Most illustrations share the page with text.
5. Every inch of the book is illustrated or decorated in some fashion. There are NO white pages in the book. Even the pages without large illustrations have the paper printed and marked with ink blots or paper "stains". In Chamber of Secrets (compared to Sorcerer''s Stone), some pages even have beautiful patterns over the entire page. One page has a spider-web pattern and is right next to a picture of Aragog. Quite brilliant overall.

I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to read the series (again, or for the first time), especially if you plan to read this with someone younger. Based on the fact that the illustrations for this book were even better than in the first book, I''m now looking forward to the rest of the series even more. Prisoner of Azkaban is next and I''m heartbroken it''ll be so long before I get to have it in my collection.

These Illustrated edition’s are my first time ever reading the Harry Potter series, and I am so happy to be reading the series through these editions. The illustrations add so much magic, liveliness, intrigue, and fun to the story of Harry Potter. I absolutely love these editions and I can’t wait to turn each page to see the story progress as well as see the beautiful illustrations. I can’t recommend these books enough especially if you have never read Harry Potter, this is the perfect way to start and truly be immersed in the world of Hogwarts and the magic that each page brings. J. K Rowling’s writing is so much fun to read and it truly keeps you captivated in the plot, settings and characters. The writing is also the kind that keeps you from not wanting to stop as the book is so well written and portrayed through words. This is quickly becoming one of my top two series I have ever read. 100% recommend getting the illustrated edition as you will fall in live from the first page.

The story itself is already a classic - it needs no reviewing. However, the artwork is new and it is AMAZING. I am not kidding when I tell you that I LOVE the illustrations.

The Harry Potter movies are great, but they don''t capture the magic of Harry Potter very well (the first 2 do a decent job, but they become more action movies after that). My second gripe with the movies is that after they came out, 99.9% of Harry Potter merchandise is based on the movies and the way things are portrayed in the movies. I get it. It makes sense. But I don''t like it.

The illustrations in these books are actually based on the descriptions from the books! It is so hard to find high-quality illustrations that are made based on the books and not the movies. I LOVE IT. These books do a really great job of capturing the feeling I had as a kid reading the books, before the movies! You will be surprised how different some of the characters look compared to the movies, but you''ll love it! I honestly would like to purchase each of these illustrations as stand-alone prints and hang them up. Perhaps one day if I have the space and I''m not broke. I''m a teacher, so that''s not likely to ever happen :)

These illustrated editions of Harry Potter were done right! All of the original text is there and the artwork is beautiful. Every page has something, whether it''s an illustration that takes up a full double page spread, a little drawing in the corner, a thematic border, or just a visually textured background. It may sound chaotic, like the visuals could be too much and break up the flow of reading but it is not; it enhances the story as you turn the pages and delight in the new visuals that each page brings. I imagine these would be a great way to bring children into the story, but they''re so nice you may want to protect and collect these beauties. I can''t wait for them to release the others.

I was ecstatic when I saw these in Barnes and Noble and bought one immediately at 40 bucks a pop (which would still be worth it), but once i saw it on Amazon at almost HALF the price, I returned mine back to Barnes and Noble and bought TWO on Amazon sui I could gift one to my Harry Potter loving cousin for Christmas and keep one for myself. I have been wanting to reread these for awhile since it''s been so long and I tried awhile back and it was hard because I''m 31 now and the first books are pretty young reading. I think these new books are going to bring the reread to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL! The art is literally phenomenal. It''s beautiful and dark and adult. I''m looking forward to collecting all of these to pass on to my daughter who is 7 now. I think she''ll be into these soon and can pass them down to her children because they are classic and hardcover so they should last. LOVE.

My son (8 years old) has been hesitant to read the Harry Potter series because the novels looked too intimidating. But after my sister got him the first book like this one, he dove right in and finished in a week. I got this one for him and he finished it just as quickly as the first! My only disappoint came when I realized the other books haven''t been printed like this yet. Of course, now that he''s been introduced to the series, he''s fine with reading the third one "like a regular book." :)

Essa coleção de livros ilustrados é simplesmente incrível! Todo fã de HP que se preze deve comprar esses livros, não importa se for essa edição importada ou a nacional. Para aqueles que estão preocupados com a dificuldade do idioma, eu recomendaria esse livro para quem já tem um inglês intermediário: níveis B1 ou B2 (pesquise por CEFR para entender melhor). Em relação a história não tem muito o que falar: JK criou um universo incrível e instigante para crianças e adultos. Na minha opinião, esse é o livro mais engraçado de toda a série e também este parece mais sombrio que o anterior, mas nada que atrapalhe a leitura por crianças. Só um detalhe que me chamou atenção: no livro anterior tinha dois padrões para ilustração no início do capitulo: 1 - ilustração na metade da primeira folha, incluindo o nome do capítulo dentro do desenho; ou 2 - o mesmo padrão anterior com uma folha a mais toda ilustração, sem títulos. Nesse livro essas edições ficaram menores, apenas um circulo com desenho em cima do nome do capítulo. Mas no restante do livro continua tudo com igual.
