I have never read such a wondrous and time consuming book. A true legend Potter will be, for years and years to come.

2 thumbs up!
This book has inspired me to read more at school and at home. I love the Harry Potter series and I'm in the middle of reading the second one! I think J.K Rowling is a great author with a creative imagination! Two thumbs up! :)

It was full of action and intense suspense. I loved how J.K. Rowling displayed the characters. She makes every feel like they are special. My favorite part is the end when the characters head below the trapped door. They defeat their challenges as we all should in life. When that hurdle comes right at us, we should believe in ourselves and jump over the hurdle. I would recommend this book to all children and adults.

It is great. About the greatest book I ever read.I read a lot of books but this one is the best one in my opinion. It is adventurous, fun, mysterious, and even suspenseful. I love this book.

This is an amazing book but you do not have the main mysterious part that is at the end.It's all about who is the YOU KNOW WHO that everyone is not allowed say the name of? what was being protected from the 3rd out of bounds corridor? who tries to kill Harry and why? You are missing the main important mysterious info that makes people finish the book till the end!!!!!
