thank me later

I came across so many reviews about PARAGON CREDIT SOLUTION for the great job they are doing. And I was very need of a good hacking company to help Me and my husband fix our credit. 4 years ago we messed up to credit report due to low income. I contacted them on there email address , and they ask us for the necessary information and promise to get job within maximum of 6 days. To our greatest surprise in less than 5 working days they remove all negative items and also raise our credit score to 806 across board. You can contact them on . They are the best hacking company I have came across.

Great job

Book as advertised My daughter loves it Thank you!

Not what I ordered at all

Trying to collect this original British set as a gift for my sister in law. Received a very random version of the book with a cloth cover. I’m only missing books 1&2 so it’s very frustrating to think you found something and it’s not right.

No dust cover

Ordered this book in “very good condition”… the book itself is in fact in good condition, but there was no dust cover which was not disclosed. I would not have made this purchase otherwise, so that is disappointing.

No dust jacket

Ordered this as a hardcover and received with no dust jacket which was not denoted in description or when ordering.

Bought for my daughter

The book arrived in terrible condition. Ordered a hardback and got it. Dustcover came with it, but the book itself is stained, has crayon drawings on the pages, and worst of all the spine is split so pages will be falling out soon. Very disappointed with this book.

No issues!

I loved it. Got exactly what I ordered. Loved Dobby. Heir of Slythiren is not who I though they would be

Absolutely lovely

This copy is so beautiful! Well worth the $19.

Not what I ordered

I ordered a hardcover and received it with no sleeve.

What I ordered

Exactly as I expected.

Don’t mind the look of worn

It’s great. All the pages are intact and it look like a well read book. Not bad and can’t wait to add to my collection.

There was missing the first two discs. I will wait for the paperback.

The dvd has the first two discs missing. I wanted the paperback book. I will get that when it becomes available.

Always loved this book

A book in good condition doesn't come with pages that you have to tape back into the book. Love the book but very unhappy with the copy I was sent

Covered in MOLD

Received what I ordered, but... the book is covered in MOLD. I can't give this to my students at all.

really good quality

the quality of this book is super good

So happy to have Harry Potter back in life !!

I'm so glad the books came in pretty good condition. So happy to have found this website.

This is definitely not a “very good” condition book.

When I brought it, it said the condition was very good. But it came as a very bad condition. It even has cuts through the first ~50 pages. My daughter is very disappointed. Will not bug again.

Package and book came damaged

Received this package late and damaged. There is a visible razor slice on the package and thru to the book itself. From top to halfway through the book sleeve. Very disappointed.

love it!!!

i ordered a hardcover and got it even with a dust jacket! there are no ripped or missing pages. the book looks almost new. the only problem i had was that the gutter of a small section of pages was detached from the rest and when i open the book to where it’s detached i can see the spine of the book. but that’s completely fine to me. the copy i got was made in 1999 so it’s understandable. other than that i love the book. also i thought this was kinda cool but in the very first page there is a little note from 1999 from grandparents to their grandchild (i’m guessing). they were giving him my book as a christmas gift!

Great book!

My 6th grade is really into Harry Potter Books right now. He is almost finished with this one.


Had some writing but I don’t mind. The rest is very good quality!

Acceptable book, that is actually AMAZING

I was very hesitant to buy this book after reading all of the reviews. I want the complete set of HP books, all hardback with dust covers. After seeing so many people say their book didn't come with a dust cover had me worried. I just received my book, WITH A DUST COVER! I ordered an acceptable one, and it looks brand new. I am very happy with my order, and it looks great!

best of the bunch

Ordered this with 2 other HP books. Listed as Very Good and while I dont agree and think its just Good but the Like new ones I ordered were fall apart and horrible this one was good. Came with the book jacket but overall the book is very dirty , some pages bent and the cover is ripped but overall its ok.

Received book with 100 pages missing

Not rating the book but the quality of the book we got: My son was so anxiously waiting for this book...and we got this 'Used Good' book with 100 missing. Understand these are used books but 100 missing pages is simply unacceptable ((

It was in horrible condition! I bought like new and got garbage! Ordering another one like new condi

My daughter had to glue the book together so she could read it. Wish I could show pictures of what I recieved.

Chamber of Secrets

First time reading the books and it's better than I thought it would be. Would I reread it? Probably not soon. Would I recommend it? Sure.

love harry potter

love the harry potter books,but don't like them when they are's very hard to read a book that is bent,and it is very hard to get them flat buying from you ,but come on!

Not what I ordered

So yeah love the book but I ordered a hardback with the dust jacket. Missing the jacket.

A review for the condition not a review on the book

Hardcover book came with no dust cover. If I had known, I would not have purchased from this site.

A little disappointed

I ordered this book and was extremely exited but when I opened it the front cover was ripped and the binding was cracked and keep in mind I ordered the book in good condition

For “Good Condition”, this is trash.

There is writing from a kindergartener and circling of words throughout the book. How is this in good condition?!

Poor condition

I love these books and decided to read them again. Bought this one in “good” condition and it was missing 2 different chapters throughout the book!

Missing pages

I ordered this book a few months ago and have just now got around to reading it. I get to what I think is the end of the book, and realize I’m missing the last 87 pages. I’m having to reorder the book and hope this one comes with all of the pages because I don’t want to have an incomplete book in the series.

The book came to me in horrible condition

The book is a great read but the condition it came to me was horrible


I got the book great condition but it had the name Jacob in the book and ugly star drawings I had to white it out, 4 stars.

Quality abysmal

Harry Potter is a wonderful read. I ordered 6 books of the series and was disappointed with the quality they were in. My “like new” copy has yellowed pages, a torn cover, and loose spine. My “good” copy is in good conditions. The rest were “very good” condition and 3 of the four have ripped pages and crooked spines. Very odd. The system might be a little off. I’m not angry though, because each book was about $4 - barely anything.

Harry Potter and the missing pages

Order this book was in pretty good condition but missing 33 pages... skips from page 32 to 65. Very disappointed.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Illustrated Edition

I ordered a "good" condition hardback illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. The spine was torn from the front cover - I would consider it more of acceptable condition. The price was good but would have spent more for a used version with an intact spine. Disappointed.

i have it; great book.

I order a very good condition hardcover. I received a hardcover with major damage from a red liquid. The book is warped and barely opens. It pages have red stains all over them.

I receive a smaller book

I bought a specific edition of this book to complete the set, but when the book came even though the covers and the spine matched, the book was smaller that the rest. This is an amazing site but something that would make it even better is if you add better description of the books we are getting. The book looks complete and it's in good condition but i will have to buy it again and hopefully get the bigger book to match the rest.


I ordered a "good" hardcover. Although I did receive the hard copy, the spine is broken, and there is no book jacket. I will not be ordering from this seller again.

Great Purchase

I am extremely satisfied with this purchased. I ordered a hardcover in "like new" condition and received just that. The book is in fabulous condition, it looks brand new. I have read this book many times but needed a hardcover copy for my collection.

I ordered a hardcover version of the Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets but I recieved a paperback of it. That's the only downside, but the condition of it is pretty good.

Bought this book in hardcover ...

I bought this book for my son’s book collection in hardcover and received a paperback. My son loves having his books in hardcover, and was very disappointing with the paperback book.

Not What I Ordered

I had recently ordered the hard cover version of this book and could not have been more excited to build my collection again. Upon receiving my order, this book was not in good condition and was a paper back. Extremely disappointed with this.


Received paperback when ordered hardcover...I see that others have the same issue...can I return this paperback?

Wrong format!

Same as all the other reviews...ordered hard cover and got paperback. Wish I would have read reviews before ordering because it’s my only paperback in the series.

Not what I ordered

I ordered the first 2 Harry Potter books, hardcover with dust jackets. I received Sorcerer's Stone without the dust jacket, and Chamber of Secrets in paperback with a 50 cent sticker on it. I am moving soon and wanted the entire matching set. Although the company did not offer to replace the items, they were good enough to refund my money.


Having read all the books in English, I picked this up to see what I could make of it. It is extremely well-edited; it keeps the important plot points and preserves all the flavor of the original book. Reading it in French, I noticed some subtle (and really adorable) things that I missed in English, simply becuase I had to read more carefully. I kept my dictionary close at hand, but it really is written on the level of, probably, a 9-year-old.

Excellent book, poor translation

...The translators chose idiomatic expressions particular to certain regions of Spanish-speaking countries, when common words would have been satisfactory. As if that was not bad enough, they also chopped up the narrative. This is not an abridged version, but a truncated one, as if they were in a hurry to finish the book or save pages. If Spanish is your second language, be aware that you may not understand some terms. Just skip them and memorize the names of the translators, so you won't buy another book ruined by them.Yet. . . the story is fascinating and the suspense in the plot is captivating. Even if the Spanish rendition of loses flavor due to poor translation, I was amazed, surprised, thrilled and fascinated all over again, and I was especially overjoyed to share with my daughter the excitement of the conspiracies and the joy of reading.I just hope that when the fourth and fifth books are translated to Spanish, the Spanish-speaking people will get an un-butchered version.

J.K.Rowling did it again!

"Harry Potter und die Kammer des Schreckens" is the German translation of the second Harry-Potter-book. I think I don't have to tell you anything about the story - see the reviews of the English version for details (besides: who wants to read more about the content of such a book than the back page offers - it would spoil some of the fun since the Potter books are in part a crime story!). The translation is - judging from my reading experience - well done and worth reading. The language is not too complicated so the book qualifies as reading stuff for a foreigner wishing to practice his German reading skills. I didn't find any translation mistakes - the language sounded genuine German and was vivid and fun to read. The names (always a problem when translating) are not altered, so some of the flair that comes with the nicely selected names of the original is lost to the non-English reader. But this second book shows that this is the right way to go: there is a name-letter-puzzle which plays a key role in this book and translating that one would have been a very hard task indeed.So the translation receives 5 stars, all well earned for the content as for the translation. My final note goes to the discussion if this book is for adults as well as teenagers or not: anyone waiting for deep insights into the society, mankind and the world we live in will be disappointed when reading this book. But it is by far the best youth book I ever read, 350 fast pacing pages and I never regretted that I bought it. Nobody whants to read Joyce all the time. And when I turn too light reading stuff, I expect quality as well. Here is where this book has its place in the adult market.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry, a twelve year old boy is continuing another fascinating year at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. This second book in the J.K. Rowling series is a must read! Not only do the main characters Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger set out to solve a new problem but, they realize that somebody has opened the Chamber of Secrets. Through trial and error our heroes search for clues to save one of their friends. Again Harry must put his life in danger to save others who are important to him. J.K. Rowling has introduced us to some new characters in book two. We meet a magical elf, Dobby, a new professor, Gilderoy Lockheart and finally Ginny Weasley, Ron's younger sister who joins the famous trio. I liked this book because it was a true page turner. As the reader you can search for possible clues along with Harry, Ron and Hermione. I would recommend this book to anyone over seven years old. J.K. Rowling did an excellent job on this book because it's exciting and full of adventure. I have learned from this book that life is full of tough challenges and problems. No matter how hard it is you have to be brave and trust in yourself to do the right thing.
