Captivating and a really brilliant piece of literature. An end to the greatest book series ever.
This is the only piece of fiction that has ever brought me to tears (the reason which I will not spoil, but those who read it should know). Truly amazing. - imataco123
It made me laugh. It made me cry. It is the best book I have ever read and it will probably remain my favorite for the rest of my life. It's a simply brilliant piece of literature. All loose ends are tied up, some not how we would want, and there are just so many amazing elements about this story. Furthermore, it is much different than the rest of the books. It's a fight for survival. I will ALWAYS love this book. (See what I did there? )

I LOVE this one! It is a book with twists, turns, definitely my favorite Harry Potter book. It also introduces Lupin, the best defense against the dark arts teacher they have ever had! It is a fun and interesting book with character growth. This is my favorite, and always will be.
I've just finished this book. So far I've only read the 3, but this one surpasses the other two by a substantial amount. It gives background knowledge that the other two lacked. It gives lots of plot twists keeping you at the edge of your seat. It gives shocking secrets and moments where you can't help but gasp at. And it also manages to give us an ending that leaves us both mystified and eager to read the next book. So well done how the twisty plot all comes together in the end. Just brilliant.
Just wait til you read order of the Phoenix and deathly hallows - Sambazing
Get this above that hackneyed fanfic that was so not a "perfect ending" like so many claim!
This book is so pivotal to the series. It is what changes Harry Potter from kids stories to war stories
It's got a good storyline. The only problem with it is that it doesn't make good use of its length. When I read the previous book. I loved it very much. When I saw that this one was super long, I had high expectations, I was disappointed. There was just very little happening throughout most of the book. Because of this, I would take really long breaks from it. Anyways, its story was great, though, if it was shortened by a few hundred pages, it would have been a much better read. I haven't read Order of the Phoenix yet. I hope it makes better use of its legnth.
This one is where it really starts to come together. The detail and revelations from this book exceed any in the rest of the series, and the final duel definitely grabs the reader's attention, something I can't really say for the "Deathly Hallows," which was basically a repeat of this, except shorter and not as believable for some reason. It doesn't drop you in a random scene in the lead. - AlGalaxy
This is the book where everything changes. It is also the first of the darker and much more complex books. The whole plot is very interesting and all the new characters are great. Plus, the graveyard scene where Voldemort returns to full power is emotional and foreshadows what is to come for Harry and his friends.
Until the sixth book came out, we had Lord Voldemort, a villain with no depth what so ever. We had a glimpse of his motivations in one of the final chapters of Order of the Phoenix, (which is, in my opinion the best chapter of the whole saga, where Harry destroys the office of Dumbledore because Sirius died) but that's it. We have no idea of how Tom Riddle became evil, nor how he resurrected. After Half-Blood Prince, a lot of things change. We learn about the Gaunts, on how soulless Tom is to kill is father and grandparents and blame it on Morfin, his uncle. We learn that Tom was a very proud person, who clung to everything that made him special, and threw away everything that made him normal. We learn about the Horcruxes, not that Dumbledore didn't know about them already, but we learn that there are six (later we find out that there are 7). About Snape: it's true that Snape has it's biggest twist in Deathly Hallows, but we can't ignore that it wasn't his first one; in fact, in ...more
Though dark and sad, the sixth book in the Harry Potter series is both action packed and informative. As Harry learns about Voldemort's past with Dumbledore, it becomes clear why the Dark Lord was so feared during his first years in power. The book focuses on finding Voldemort's weaknesses via memories and old friends, and eventually, using them against him. Relationships form between the characters and political, psychological and emotional traits come into focus, Riddled with suspense, love and hatred, the Half Blood Prince is one of J.K Rowling's best novels, having plenty of mystery, action and quality literature.
Definitely, all that. Draco's showing fear. Hermione realizing her love for ron, Lavander such a whore, Harry with his moments, and of course, the Ginny and Harry kiss! Best scene ever.
and we can't forget about Dumbledore's death and Riddle's past
I LOVE THIS BOOK! I like it better than the others because it shows the character's emotions in more depth. Great read!
The best. Luna was my favourite character. I hate Bellatrix though.
By far the best one. I just finished reading it and before that I liked the Chamber of Secrets best for it's intensity. But this one has and epic final battle and Umbridge is surprisingly even worse than Voldemort! Order of the Phoenix is by far the best Harry Potter book, hands down.
If I listed my favorite Harry Potter books worst to best, it would go from shortest to longest. Although this may take the longest to read, it becomes the most interactive to read. I remember reading the book for the first time and feeling the tensity of the court case, the relief in going back to Hogwarts, the hatred for Snape, Malloy, and especially Umbridge, and the mourning over a certain characters demise. The first one may have been the original. The second may have been a darker and better version of the first. The third may have been the crowd-pleaser. The fourth May have been one that set the tone for the rest of the series. The sixth may have showcase the best sense of dread. The seventh may have made me want to read the series over again, but in my opinion, the best Harry Potter book is without a doubt The Order of the Phoenix.
It is my favorite! Umbridge is deplorable, OWLS are crazy, and Harry and his friends are up for another adventure
This book is totally the best because they trio are going on a mystery and Ginny gets introduced and Harry Potter learned more about Voldemort so he could defeat him
I love the mystery element in this book. I loved trying to solve the puzzles along with the golden trio. This book is my favorite.
I love this one so much! The mystery is so much more entertaining than all the other ones, especially the last one. I love the feeling of the first four so much more than the last three.
I've read the whole series (including cursed child) 57 times, and this has been my favourite (other than deathly hallows). I really liked this. I just recently finished this for the 58th time and I have realised that this was a really good book. I can't really decide, but since the chamber of secrets is really interesting, I chose this one to vote for.
Sorcerer's Stone is a stupid title why?
Nicholas Flamel was a real person who tried to make a Philosopher's Stone and in real life he would've been killed or tortured to death if he had called it The Sorcerer's Stone. It was around the time in history of killing "witches".
So called fans miss the point of the house cup. Gryffindor was near winning before they even saved the stone but Professor McGonagall was outraged that three Gryffindors were out of bed at night and she took 50 points from them, then Harry, Ron and Hermione save the stone and Neville shows his early bravery and Dumbledore gives them back the points that they lost. Slytherin also won for 7 years before Harry knew his real life. Also Dumbledore was not humiliating Slytherin, Professor McGonagall was also at the feast and she was the one who ruined it.
This is the only book in the series I've read so far and I LOVED IT SO MUCH! I would never want to read anything but I couldn't put this book down! I got hooked in reading because of this book! I thought it was honestly going to be a peice of nerdy wizzarding garb but it's definitely not. It's for anyone that wants a book that will keep them on the edge of their seat and just will not be able to put it down. Because of this book I will read the whole rest of the series! Awesome book I am sure to read again!
Where the magic all begins: humour, being introduced to the characters and an appropriate conclusion. Although I confess I prefer the name 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone'.
After Fantastic Beasts movies finish I hope they make Quidditch Through the Ages.
or even Beedle the Bard stories. Oh people hate Beedle the Bard because it's a fairytale book, well its different the witches and wizards are good.
Man, this book was great. And this is coming from an American person who isn't into sports- I know, does that even exist? Of course, the Harry 'Potter books surpasses all others in tenderness and just wholesome story-telling, I want to see this one higher. So there. ; P
This was good, but sometimes it was boring. - HermioneKG4884
The other Harry Potter books are a lot better than this one. I just feel bad how so little people voted for it. I voted for it. Deal with it :P
This is an amazing book because I love animals and I love the Wizarding World and put them together and you get magical creatures and I love magical creatures and then they made a book about them . Yay 😀
They are making 3 films about this book/story - mneilan
Hate it so much it ruins the series
I really need to get this-my friend showed it to me
This one is the WORST of the ones I've read. - HermioneKG4884
Dumbledore's comentary is superb
Very good and interesting. makes me go to sleep very fast
Buuut I do like the comentary. - HermioneKG4884
It's got the American illustration on the cover.
It should be Harry in front of the Hogwarts Express.
They took the alliteration out of the name! What the heck! Good story though.
The perfect beginning to a truly magical series
This website is too American.
I do like this book but I had to reread it to understand it was VERY confusing
You just need to get it ok. The problem was that no one actually knew anything about the children of the Trio and Draco, we just had an epilogue at the end of the Deathly Hallows. Bellatrix said in the sixth book if she had sons she would allow them to follow the Dark Lord yeah she had a daughter but a small clue about her child and she had feelings for Voldemort, maybe she used a love potion and is Voldemort's most loyal follower so he wouldn't suspect. We had true time turners only two existed and used for full time and but still had the meddle with time is dangerous you know evil Cedric, Voldemort Day.
I didn't really get it, and being that it is a literal play script I didn't really enjoy reading it. Even if this was performed (which I think it probably was or still is, I don't know) it would still be just sort of eh. After reading all the HP books besides the extras like quidditch through the ages this is just unnecessary. It's not bad, I just didn't necessarily enjoy it - 10Jackson
This horrible fanfiction shouldn't exist. It ruins Harry Potter.
