5.0 von 5 Sternen Hogwarts or the Island?
Well, I'm eighteen years old, and I still was enthralled by this book. It moves quickly, and the action is good. I figured out the ending well before the end of the book, but then, I'm six years older than the top of the suggested reading ages. Regarding it being compared to Harry Potter.....I love Harry, and would never insult the Potter books, but this one is less...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Worth reading
No, really, it's not as good as the Potter books. It doesn't have their depth or complexity of plot. I would bet, though, that Rowling had this in the back of her mind when she was writing the Sorceror's Stone -- there are too many similarities to be coincidental. Platform 13 is worth reading in its own right, though, and its hero, Ben, is NOT a Potter clone. If you...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hogwarts or the Island?, 21. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret of Platform 13 (Taschenbuch)
Well, I'm eighteen years old, and I still was enthralled by this book. It moves quickly, and the action is good. I figured out the ending well before the end of the book, but then, I'm six years older than the top of the suggested reading ages. Regarding it being compared to Harry Potter.....I love Harry, and would never insult the Potter books, but this one is less scary. I mean, in Harry Potter, there's he-who-cannot-be-named, and the dementors and such, whereas here, the scariest thing is a woman with some REALLY sharp knitting needles. Neither book is better than the other. They are different, but both fabulous...Read them BOTH!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A reader from CA, 28. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret of Platform 13 (Taschenbuch)
This book is WONDERFUL! I found it just like Harry Potter in some ways. This book is not dull and I was very excited to see what would happen next. It was very surprising. It wasn't predictible; what I thought was going to happen didn't and it surprised me. Usually, books are VERY predictible and what you think is going to happen does actually happen. Not with this. I never knew what was going to happen next. I would turn the page with my mind racing about what would happen. Usually, my guess was wrong. I recommend this book to any kid 9-12, especially to Harry Potter lovers.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret of Platform 13 (Taschenbuch)
This book was written years before Harry ever wound up on a publisher's desk, and it should not be viewed in comparison to J.K. Rowling's books. The value of Platform 13 comes in the delightful opportunities for imagination and discussion when an adult and a child read it together. We used this book for a mother/daughter group and had wonderfully creative time addressing points in Ms. Ibbotson's book. What atmosphere is the best place for a gump, and where would be the best place to find a gump in this country? If YOUR child was stolen, who would you send to rescue him or her - Odge and her friends or the harpies? (Moms had a surprising answer for this one.) Is it true that "when children behave badly it is nearly always the fault of those who bring them up"? Other quotes that sparked spirited debate included, "when you have worked and worked for something, it is almost impossible to believe that you can fail", and "it doesn't matter what your home is like - it's that it's yours that matters". This is an ingeniously creative fantasy for pre-teens, and for those adults who can still see magic in the art of storytelling. If you open your mind and your imagination you'll love this book for what it offers, and not find it necessary to make comparisons. Oh yes, if you're all grown up, don't forget to check out the harpie with a handbag, who bears a curious resemblance to a former prime minister...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eva Ibbotson's books are a big thumbs up!, 25. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret of Platform 13 (Gebundene Ausgabe)
If you love books you can't put down,you'll love THE SECRET OF PLATFORM THIRTEEN. This book is exciting,adventurous,and at some parts humorous. All the characters have their own personality. There are pictures, but the book is descriptive,so you don't really need the pictures to picture everything.You never know what's going to happen next. This book is wonderful. YOU HAVE TO READ IT!

Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Secret of Platform 13 (Taschenbuch)
Dieses Buch ist einfach nur klasse-vielleicht nicht besser als Harry Potter,aber wenn man es liest,merkt man sofort,dass sich J.K. Rowling hier einige Ideen "geliehen" hat.
Für alle,die auf Harry Potter warten, zu empfehlen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing twisting plot., 19. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret of Platform 13 (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Welcome to an island undiscovered by most people. It's full of magical creatures and delightful mistmakers. Only one problem, though. The royal family has lost their son, the prince. A rescue party of an old wizard, a kind fey, an invisible man and a determined 9 year old hag are sent to find him. There they meet Ben, a kind and courageous house servant, and they meet Raymond, a very spoiled boy. The question is, which one is the prince? In this lushly detailed book, you have your suspicions about what will happen, but in the end it winds up being surprising. The characters are well developed. The book is a cross between a Lloyd Alexander book, Half Magic and the Boggart. I am a 12 year old girl in 7th grade.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful, 10. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret of Platform 13 (Taschenbuch)
I loved this book. But I agree with the other reviewer that said that this shouldn't be compared to the Harry Potter books. I mean, sure, they're similar, but not every good book has to be "better" than Harry. Anyway...
Like I said, this is one of my favorite books. I also think that the cover illustration is a great portrayal of the characters. (By the way, I know Kevin Hawkes, and that cover is by him, not Sue Porter.) I had my suspicions about how this book would turn out, and I was pleasently surprised. Even if you don't buy this book, at least check it out of the library. You'll love it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An absolute delight, a "must read"., 13. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret of Platform 13 (Gebundene Ausgabe)
There is life afer Harry Potter. I didn't think I would find anything to delight me in the same way, but thankfully I was wrong. This is clever and funny and quite magical. As an adult who unashamedly loves fantasy and magic for all ages, Platform 13 turned out to be one of the best of all times. Give yourself, your children and your fantasy loving friends a real treat. Buy them this book! The characters are delightfully funny, the story has great charm,and I had the pleasure of laughing out loud and being enchanted all at the same time. Bless the English for being so very good at children's story telling.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a treat for all the family, 13. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret of Platform 13 (Gebundene Ausgabe)
We (an 8 yr old boy and 2 parents) listened to the audiotape of this book during a car trip of several days. It was wonderful: a gripping start, suspense right up til the end, a heady mix of fantasy, humour, and problems/fears that children and parents can relate to, as well as characters we enjoy loving or loathing. This book touches on some of the grand themes of 'children's literature': love & duty, friendship, courage & sacrifice, with a deft hand. The gump, and mistmakers, make this world a better place.
