To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The books are great! However, the font is too small and if put to regular reading, the cover starts wearing off - mine did in a month for Order of Phoenix. Also, as the photo shows, one of the pages of the books is missing - Deathly Hallows, page 17. Make sure you check once you've purchased the books! Lol disappointed.
I love this set, the font is good, they feel really nice, the box is nice too and the illustrations are gorgeous. The set itself is great but like MANY reviews on this page my books were damaged. It seems when they were in production something went wrong and there is a big slash down one of the books, but it was all wrapped in cellophane as if no one even noticed. I recommend finding this set from a more reliable seller because too many of us have experienced problems but it would be a shame to miss out on this set.
These books arrived very quickly and were freshly packaged but unfortunately there was some damage to a couple of them which, of course, is quite disappointing considering the price of them. One of them has a big scratch down the back and another has been crumpled slightly (as can be seen in pictures attached). Most of them are in good condition and all the books are clearly brand new, it's just a shame that those two are damaged.
Also über die Bücher selbst muss ich ja nicht viel sagen, weiß ja jeder dass die 5-Sterne Material sind. Deswegen bewerte ich hier explizit dieses Produkt.
Mir gefällt das Design dieses Box-Sets sehr. Ich finde, dass dieses Set die besten Cover hat. Auch wenn es als "Kindersammlung" vermarktet wird macht es sich sehr schön auf meinem Bücherregal aus. Ich habe es ja auch zum Teil gekauft, um es auf meinem Bücherregal auszustellen. Umso mehr Schade ist es also, dass eins der Bücher bei mir beschädigt ankam. Da diese Bücher ja schön aussehen sollten und eigentlich makellos ankommen sollten, da ich diese ja als "neu" bestellt habe, ist es eben sehr traurig wenn eins der Bücher offensichtlich noch vor dem Verpacken selbst beschädigt wurde aber dann trotzdem zu mir geliefert wurde während ich den vollen Preis bezahlt habe. Während der Lieferung kann die Beschädigung nicht passiert sein, da nicht nur der Buchrücken sondern auch die Seiten an sich beschädigt sind, welche normal durch die Box geschützt sind. Sehr Schade.
Its my personal opinion and I am sure many will disagree with it. This is a collector's item. People who have ample money (where they don't know what to do with it) like to collect books (collector's special edition)... then you would love it... and so the heavy price tag.. of course. However, if you are just a reader then better save some money and buy normal books.
These are heavy hardcover books. Looks good. Thats it. We also bought it to gift someone (who had already read all the seven books ;) ).
THis set was represented as being as new, and I paid a good price for it. Good job I didn't get it as a present for someone because the books inside had obviously been left out somewhere, while not damaged all the slipcovers were dirty and the box itself had two places where it was damaged when opened. Very shoddy. I would have sent it back and either gotten a refund or a discount but I'm disabled and housebound so can't get to post things.
I'm giving two stars because the box was mangled in the post (sent to U.S.) The books are beautiful and not damaged, but the box set is quite pretty - beautiful red and gold - and I had to tape it all together. It's just not worth the hassle and cost of shipping back to the UK. My son really wanted the British version of the books and he loved the gift. But very disappointed with the shipping/packaging of an expensive item.
