I've read books one to five so far, and this one the pick of the series. I like it when Ron rescues him in a flying car! And I also liked it Hermoine Granger, the HUGE know it all turn into a wolf- from that polyjuice potion. I like the ending as well when Harry saves Ginny, Ron's sister, and finds that silly Lockheart had not done those amazing things he had written in his books! He cast a memory charm on the people who actually did!! I recommend this to anyone who likes adventure books.
P.S. I really am so not a muggle!!!

Azalea (age 10), a participant of SPL's Summer Reading Club, rated this book 7 out of 5 stars. She said it was "out of this world." Her favourite character in the story was Harry Potter because he is awesome and magical. She said the best part of the story was everything because Harry Potter is her favourite series!

What can I say other than amazing things about this book. I really enjoyed reading it. I have always been a fan of Harry Potter and this book is no exception. The only problem that I had was the English level, but that is certainly because I am still learning English. With all of this being said, I really enjoyed reading it!
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves adventures books.

I read this originally when I was in junior high and I hated it. I thought it was boring and slow. Since then, they made a movie, which I enjoyed and I listened to the audiobook. I think imagining some of the scenes from the movie made it a lot more enjoyable. Overall, I still think I would have disliked the audiobook if I hadn't seen the movie. Everyone I have talked to about reading or listening to the Harry Potter books say this is the hardest one to get through so I am eager to listen to the next one.

The full-colour deluxe edition illustrated by Jim Kay is absolutely gorgeous. The illustrations are vivid and stunning. The paper is glossy and thick. The book is just magnificent, with a built-in ribbon bookmark as a lovely added touch. I've loved Harry Potter for many years, but the deluxe illustrated versions are a dream come true. Anyone who loves Potter should experience these wonderful editions. And for anyone who is new to Harry Potter, you are in a for a treat because the stories are truly fantastic.

Hermione: "Harry--I think I've just understood something! I've got to go to the library!"

And she sprinted away, up the stairs.

Harry: "What does she understand?"
Ron: "Loads more than I do."
Harry: "But why's she got to go to the library?"
Ron (shrugs): "Because that's what Hermione does. When in doubt, go to the library."

It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

After a curious encounter with a house elf named Dobby, and being nearly expelled for flying Mr. Weasley's car to Hogwarts, Harry thinks he'll have a quiet break from everything at last. Soon, trouble starts again, thereby dashing all hopes for a normal-or as normal as Hogwarts could get-school year. People aren't sure who the culprit is; all they know is that he or she is a direct heir of Salazar Slytherin, pureblood loving founder of Hogwarts. Could it possibly be Draco Malfoy, a muggle-born hating enemy of Harry's? Maybe it's Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally revealed?

Frightening or Intense Scenes: It is a little bit more intense than the first book so if you are younger you might want to wait a bit before reading it.
