da best book i have ever read, 'cept for sorceror's stone, a true legend among fantasy fans and avid readers alike. the thick plot between harry and the weasleys' truly set the book apart, not to mention the fast and furious quidditch cup action. i would definitly recommend reading 'quidditch through the ages' as a companion book. victor crum remains as one of my favorite characters ever! definitely a must read!
