    The Charlie Bone books are a lot of fun. I was a little worried at first that they would just be a rip-off of the Harry Potter books. But despite some similarities, they are great stories all on their own. And if you like Harry Potter type stories, you'll like these. These books are great for kids and adults. The bad guys are never TOO bad and the scary parts never get TOO scary. The characters and plot twists are enough to keep adults interested. These are some great YA books.

    This was a series I was wary of, thinking it would try to be just like Harry Potter. And although it is influenced by Harry Potter, it is also its own story and lots of fun. I loved this series and recommend it for everyone who loves the Harry Potter series.

    Charlie Bone is a great series to read for 9 or 10 year olds. It would fall into the category of "what do I read after Harry Potter?" More for boys I would say, but not sure why. Maybe because the boys seem more complex than the girls in this series.

    One of the best book i have ever read. I loved it because it was fun and when I started to read it, I couldn't stop until the end of the book.

    I had wanted to review all 8 books in the series, but I will settle for the first five. This book was an easier read than Harry Potter, but also not as good. It has the magic element, the good guy and the bad guy. There were a lot of things I didn't like about the book. I thought the children were too young to be dealing with the evil that was in the book. The good and evil lines were too severely drawn. If a child was raised by a good person, he was automatically good. If a child was raised by a I had wanted to review all 8 books in the series, but I will settle for the first five.

I thought the children were too young to be dealing with the evil that was in the book. The good and evil lines were too severely drawn. If a child was raised by a good person, he was automatically good. If a child was raised by a bad person, he was automatically bad. And bad was bad. The bad children could just as easily lie, bully or murder. I thought that was rather harsh. In the fifth book, a mystery is solved. But it took entirely too long. That should have been resolved in book 1. Also, there was little secrecy in series. If someone was good, they got to know the entire plan. It just seemed that that wasn't prudent. Parents were also very neglectful in the book. Charlie is put in a horrible position living in the home he lived in. I get that his mom is poor, but there's no reason they couldn't have moved to a safer, happier environment instead of the one that constantly put him in danger. It also seems that most if the parents simply don't care about their kids. They leave them to fend for themselves or let them get into too much danger. Even though there are many things I didn't like about the series, kids seem to enjoy it. I just don't think I would re-read the series.

    These books have a Harry Potter feel to them. My kids probably liked them more than I do but I liked them fine. I don't like that there is no sense of closure at the end of the books and you have to keep reading to find out how scenarios from book one end. I'd rather not have to read all the books in the series to find out. If you have kids that like series, especially ones where kids have magical powers, then they will enjoy these.

    These books were really enjoyable to read but I cannot help but feel they are almost a direct copy of Harry Potter. Boarding school where magic is taught, wealthy evil family as the antagonists, young Charlie approximatley the same age as Harry Potter... the list of similarities could go on forever. Despite this I really thing that the series is worth reading; especially for Harry Potter fans :)

    I'm on book 4 in the series and they're quite good. The characters are interesting and the story moves right along. A much easier read than the Harry Potter books. Not nearly as complex, but a younger reader could tackle them. A fun read!

    I can't stop giving books 5 stars! I love the whole series, and even have book 6 "Charlie Bone and the Beast." The series does have a lot of unanswered questions that I hope get resolves soon! I look forward to book 7.

    While reading this series, I found it really hard not to compare it to Harry Potter, which is copies a LOT. But with that aside, it's an interesting idea with interesting characters, and kept my attention for five books.

    This series is the "rated G" version of Harry Potter. This is a very easy read and very good for children and adults.

    A good read, but a bit to childish for my taste, although my mother loved it. I was never expected the plot twist at the end. It was much to my liking.

    The series starts out very interesting and intriguing, but as it continues the books get weird and not nearly as exciting as they began.
