Special Edition Harry Potter Box Set 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 49 reviews.

I'm somewhat torn on how to rate this product. I had previously read all of the Harry Potter books, all of which I thoroughly enjoyed. I never owned my own and found this lovely boxed set, so I had to purchase. Unfortunately, the set I received was damaged. The box was ripped...didn't discover this until the shrink wrap was removed. Wasn't thrilled about that but thought ok, it's just the box. Then discovered that The Sorcerer's stone book was damaged. Now that pissed me off! I am unable to return it due to the removal of the shrink wrap. Barnes and Noble has lost a customer. My star rating is for the service and the irreplaceable damaged book, not the wonderful world of Harry Potter .

As always Rowling's stories were fantastic. My problem isn't with the books themselves, but with Barnes and Noble. I ordered online, because the set is $40 cheaper online than in the store. When I checked out I was trying to use a $25 gift card. It did not get credited to my account. I spent at least 3 hours trying to get someone to help me, and all I got was a guy who said there was nothing that could be done and hung up on me. When the books came in I started reading and when I got to the fifth book three chapters were missing and had been replaced with three chapters that I had read previously, the page numbers literally skipped back, then forward a good 300 pages. When I went in to a store I was able to exchange that book for one that was published correctly, but it was a hassle to drive in to exchange a book due to a mistake like that. With other bookstore going out of business I feel like B&N is losing their customer service because they know that people don't have many options for their books anymore.

I love this story and the art work on the covers is beautiful! Would make a great gift for any Harry Potter fan or a good series to add to your collection!

The book are wonderful, but the seller is horrible. I ordered the books on 12/2, they shipped on 12/3 and as of 1/9 I have not received the books. Have not gotten a response from B&N since the "20 business days" have elapsed. From the other reviews, sounds like this isn't a new issue. DO NOT ORDER ONLINE!!

QUESTION: Nowhere on her does it mention whether or not the set is hardcover or paperback! WHAT IS IT?!

If you love the Harry Potter series absolutely buy this.

I absolutely love this box set and I can't say enough good things about it. I think the illustrations are beautiful, and I also very much enjoy the small creative details added to the set (the spine revealing a depiction of Hogwarts, the back covers all showing Harry and a quote from the book in a uniform way, the texture of the covers, the way the scene on the box is of Hogsmeade and wraps around the entire set). Of course, the books are wonderful as well and I would recommend them to anyone. I ordered my box set offline and had no trouble with shipping, and the box did not come damaged. Very happy with this box set.

I would like to give a better review, except my account was hacked, and this was delivered to someone in Norman, OK, while I am in Georgia. So this might be a great set for the person who charged my account. Be careful using Barnes and Noble! Check frequently to make sure you're the only one using your account.

I love Harry Potter and was super stoked about receiving this as a birthday present. As I had recently read books 1 and 2, I went straight to book 3. I was reading the book and to my disappointment at almost the end of the book I realized that the book was missing more than 40 pages! The nearest Barnes and Noble is 2 hours away and I cannot return in the mail since I bought at the store. Such a bummer since this was a printing mistake and totally not my fault, yet I feel I am being punished for it. So now I am trying to get the the store within 14 days of the buy date so I can get my exchange. I JUST WANTED TO READ THE BOOKS, it that too much to ask?! So buyers, please check the books at the store to make sure that all the pages are there.

Came in a day early and no damages. I also like the cover art of these books more than the original

This is by far the best series I have ever read. I had seen the movies as a kid but didn't read the books until my senior year of high school. Loved the illustrations and texture of this set. A must have for Harry Potter fans.

I have always loved Harry Potter and think of myself of something of a collector of Harry Potter items. I was disappointed that Mary Grandpre, the illustrator of the Classic version of the Harry Potter Series from Scholastic, didn't have more of a contribution to the Special Edition Harry Potter Boxed Set In Paperback (Which is the 15th Anniversary Edition, for those new to the series.) than just the same illustrations at the beginning just before the Table of Contents and at the beginning of each chapter. The only thing added besides cover illustrations and artwork on the box containing the series of books is a "sneak preview" of the next book in the series and current tidbits about the author and the two illustrators along with an encouragement from Scholastic telling people to check out the website Pottermore. I intend to keep this boxed set of books but, like I said before I am a bit disapponited in this 15th Anniversay Edition off Harry Potter, I expected more.

I give 5 stars for the books, quality, and the look of them, but for service, I give this 2 stars. I ordered these books off line and paid for the 2 day expedited shipping. I was very excited to receive these books so I was checking the tracking details every day, sometimes multiple times a day. The tracking was through UPS but in actuality, the books were sent to my post office and delivered from there. Online it said "the seller requests to be sent to local post office." I was confused by that so when I didn't get my books on the expected day, I went to my local post office. The post office then told me they didn't have them. I went home and had to make multiple calls to figure out where my books were. Moral of the story, pay the few extra dollars and pick them up at the store or Target. I won't order again.

I know other people might have had different experiences than me (judging by the reviews), but my set arrived on time and in perfect condition! The artwork (the main reason I purchased this set) is quite beautiful. I already own the Harry Potter books, but this set is a must-have. I am a devoted HP fan (any fellow Slytherins out there?) and this set would make an excellent gift for any fan of the series. Overall, this was a great shopping experience and Barnes & Noble will definitely get my business again!

This is probably the best thing I have ever spent my money on.  Obviously I have the original book covers, but when these first came out I immediately bought them.  The books were tightly squeezed in the box and were hard to get out, but once you manage to shake them out, they are beautiful.  The cover illustrations are amazing, as well as the quote on the back.  The covers are the soft paper back type, and it overall was a perfect purchase.  If you are a Harry Potter fan, this is a must.

Everyone should read the Harry Potter series, and the covers for this particular box set are beautiful.

My only complaint about this set is that the box was flimsy. One side had already come undone when I took it out of the shrink wrap, but other reviews had mentioned that. so before I even gave it to my daughter, I reinforced the whole box with clear packing tape. The only thing now is that the books are a little too snug in the box, but I guess you can't have everything. But hey, I only paid $50, since it was on sale and I got 10% off for being a member and free shipping, so I can't really complain too much. The books are beautiful!

I received this box set promptly after ordering it, and it does not fail to impress me. There was a little bit of damage to the box, but it wasn't a huge deal to me as I think I have already managed to rip the box a bit more from taking the books in and out of it (it's a REALLY tight fit). Nevertheless, I am so glad I purchased this set. It's gorgeous! :)

The stories get a 5 star rating. If you haven't read this series, you definitely should. After reading the reviews I wasn't sure that I wanted to get this set from Barnes and Noble, but I received a coupon so this was the cheapest I could get it for. It took a 7 days from the day I ordered it to the day I received it (It shipped from Nevada and I live in Michigan). The box it came in was smashed, but the actual box set had very little damage. One corner of the decorative box was slightly smashed, but you would probably encounter this even if buying it in the store. One corner of the Sorcerer's Stone was crumpled, which is a little disappointing (and the reason for 4 stars instead of five). However, I believe this is because of the fact that all the books fit very snuggly in the box making it extremely hard to get the books in. All in all, it is worth it to buy it online. My books had no more damage than books you would find in the store plus they are like $40 cheaper. I would definitely recommend buying this box set.
