    So many things happen in the last book! I must warn you, it might get kind of dull in the middle of the book. It got that way for me. The last few chapters made it worth it though 😀

    I'm not really a Harry Potter fan, but I have to say that the trunk looks really impressive! A really nice collectors item and something for the fans.I really like it when thought and effort go into things like this, I've seen some of the other boxed sets and so little effort has gone into producing them, literally put into a cardboard box to hold them together with cover prints on the box.

    Ohhh, that's a very beautiful box set for my other HP-abbreviated love!Since I'm from Brazil, the book is still not available here, will be sometime later this month. I already got it in English, so I'm the only one around who knows the end =P It's so much fun confusing people with ambiguous answers when they ask about the end.

  9. Hotaru I'm about a quarter of the way through it so far and I love the feel of the book so far. Everything about the story and characters is so well developed.

  10. Ah Cory Roberts you should give the novels a read as while the movies are really great they can never quite capture all of detail that's in these books.

  11. Ivysgrandkid I still haven't seen the most recent movie but I have bought all of the previous ones and I really love the actors that they got for each of the roles. Happily I've read the first 6 books. I actually already own the first 6 books but when I saw this trunk I had to have one. 😛 Now I have 2 copies of the first 6 books and I don't know what to do with the extra copies. Heheh that probably sounds wacky. You can borrow any of the first six books. 😀

  12. Thanks Yuki! I've already dove into the final book and it's really great so far! She's such a great author and you really become engulfed in the world of Harry Potter when you read and I often loose track of time.

  13. Paul not a Harry Potter fan?! Heheh just kidding! You must see a lot of fan fare going on there whenever there's a new release. You live in the heart of it all! Thanks! this box set is really a nice collector's item and I'm glad that I had some Amazon gift certificates to use. UPS delivered it and the delivery guy was like "whoa! heavy!" 🙂

  14. Thanks! Kahmshi. Harry Potter is so popular all over the world and J.K. Rowling has really written so many gems for everyone to enjoy no matter where you live. It's great that they translate her books into so many languages but I'm not sure if this set was translated outside of the English language.

  15. Dark Knightingale because this set was released so late I'm probably the last Harry Potter fan on earth to read the last book. I better hurry!

  16. Thanks! 8gurl soon my Harry Potter addiction must end as it's a mixture of sweet & bitter as this wonderful series is coming to an end. After I'm done reading I may feel a bit lonely as that usually happens whenever I finish something.

  17. Thanks! HarimaKenji, aww you're a fan too! Heheh it can be fun when you're the only one around who knows the story's end. I never though about that: H!P= Hello! Project; HP= Harry Potter. Coincidence? I think not! 🙂

  18. You know, yesterday, J K Rowling announced that Dumbledore is gay. I don't know why she felt the need to say that. -Sell more stuff to gay people? -I dunno. Personally, I think that her little "revelation" did nothing for the story at all.
    By the way… I still haven't read "Half-Blood Prince" or "Deathly Hollows", so no. I'll be the last one to know how it all ends. When I get back to work, I can add them to the library.

    I read that today in the newspaper, I phoned up my girlfriend to tell her and after a couple of minutes of her yelling at me for making up things she finally believed me, having never got into the books I don't know how it effects the story, but apparently it helps explain a bit of the last book and makes it bit more sadder as according to JK Rowling Dumbbledore was in love with Gellert Grindelward…lol, means nothing to me though

  20. I don't understand why she did this at this point. Nothing wrong with the content of her revelation but I really wonder why she did this. It doesn't seem like anything essential in any way. People love the series so I can't imagine her thinking this would help promote it further. Strange and interesting at the same time. I'm just like…eh? I'm happy to hear that you've read all of the previous novels! That makes you a fan! 🙂 These books are so engrossing and I often find myself losing track of time while I read them. I won't spill any beans so take your time reading them. 🙂

  21. Ah Dark Knightingale just wrote about this news development. This is all new to me! :O It's relevance in the final book perhaps I haven't reached yet. Quite a sudden announcement. I don't know what to think yet. I guess it's because I don't fully understand it's connection but she surely must have had her reasons. The timing is a bit odd though as the book's been out for quite some time. I haven't finished it yet and I guess that's why I don't understand why it's relevant to the story. I guess I'll understand in time. Paul you should read the novels! You don't know what you're missing out on! Seeing the movies isn't good enough to do justice to her writing. Heheh you're probably thinking hmmm…nah not anytime soon!

    If she wanted so much to say that he's gay, I wonder why she didn't do it in the book? She had plenty of chances… He's story with Grindelwald is already developed well enough in the book as it is, trying to add more impact saying this now isn't going to do much for the story…

  23. HarimaKenji this really puzzles me as well. It's quite a strange to do this right now and I can't imagine what her intention was. Sales are already so great so I can't imagine this being done to increase them or something. So I'm just stuck with…???? I'm trying to hurry through her final book right now!

    To be honest I haven't got the time, I'm in the middle of reading the Night Watch Trilogy and I haven't really got the time to read them, literally 20mins a day :(As for the 'coming out' apparently it was done because in the script of the new film Dumbbledore says to Harry that 'he knew a girl', wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more, a nods as good as a wink to a blind bat, anyways, she stepped and told the writers that he wouldn't say that as he's gay.I also read the reasoning and affect that it has on the story line and apparently if you know this it helps explain what Dumbbledore does at some point within the last book, don't want to go into specifics as I don't know if it'll spoil the story or not for those who haven't read it.

  25. I will take my time. -Harry Pothead is not at the top of my list of priorities right now, however, making a CD for an excellent friend of mine is closer to the top of the list of things to do.
    Enjoying the series, and being a "fan" is two different things. -I'm not entirely sure I'm a fan yet, but I do enjoy this series. -As a matter of fact, I'm currently involved in a HP movie marathon to prepare for the soon-to-be-released "Order Of The Phoenix", which I have only viewed as an Editor's copy of so far.
    -I didn't run right out for ANY of the books. -I wait 'till the price comes down to reasonable levels.
    However, I find Her-hiney's voice to be a bit too thick, and distracting from the other's dialog… -Movi-ily speaking that is.
    And so what if Dumbledor is gay? -It has very little, if nothing to do with this story. -What is JK's real agenda, in saying such a thing? -I question her motives in saying such a thing…
    -As if she wasn't rich enough as it was…

  27. Paul it's interesting that this actually ties in to something in the story and I guess I haven't reached that part yet as I have no idea how this is is connected to anything. Still quite strange to me though to announce this now. Ahh I don't have the time to read that I'd like to have either. Thank you for holding back on the details. 🙂

  28. Dark Knightingale thank you! That's very kind of you to say. 🙂 I'm also looking forward to the latest movie finding its way to DVD! Too bad they couldn't keep up with the novels but I understand how difficult that would have been. The cast looks so grown up now! They better hurry! The great thing is that everyone is signed on till the final movie adaptation is made. 🙂 JK Rowling is the ultimate rags to riches story! I definitely don't think she needs any more money! I read that when she originally was shopping her story around trying to find a publisher, she was turned down quite a few times. :O Hindsight is 20/20 but I bet some of those people are now kicking themselves and with each new book release that probably calls for another kick.

  29. Eh, who knows?
    -Her recent "good fortune" has done nothing to, or for me, or my orginal view of the story, and anyones sexuality wasn't my concern with the story.
    My "concern" was the story.
    -However, my "concern" for this story has been lessened some by "the news".
    This very late "revelation" was nothing more than a cheap attempt to "drum up more" support for a book series which stirred up some christian church hatred, for it's possible "teaching of witchcraft".
    (-Yet, they're free to teach their lies… -Go figure.)
    Now that's what we call "selling out".

  30. Dark Knightingale it is disappointing that she decided to do this at this point. Her motives have really come under fire recently as a result and I'm still not quite sure what to make of it. Oddly timed for sure.
