    1. Más que una carta de Hogwarts, yo siempre deseé haber sido la séptima hija de una séptima hija para ir a la Granja Groosham.Leí este libro por primera vez hace muchísimos años, cuando iba en la primaria. Harry Potter todavía no se publicaba y la Granja Groosham fue la primera vez que me encontré con una escuela poco usual y que se quedó en mi corazón.En esta historia, un chico de 12 años de nombre David Eliot, es expulsado de la estricta escuela en la que estudia. Nunca ha congeniado [...]

    2. The characters in this book are stereotypical and flat--you've got the fat kid who seems like he will be a bigger secondary character but then disappears halfway through the story. Then there's the tomboy girl best friend that doesn't really do anything. I never bonded with the main character, and felt like he was just a puppet of the author, not a real person. Let's face it, we read books to escape not to follow a lifeless boy whose decisions make no sense. The ending doesn't add up, and we are [...]

    3. Anthony Horowitz wrote Groosham Grange before the Harry Potter series came out, yet it is hard to read Groosham without comparing it to Harry Potter. David Eliot is 10 year old boy who does not know he is a sorcerer until his father recieves a strange letter in the mail inviting David to a special school. David's parents are far worse than the Dursleys, and so Groosham Grange makes a welcome change for David, except that there are clearly strange things going on there. Students disappear from th [...]

    4. I thought this book was very captivating and intriguing as it was focused around David Eliot's disappointing schooling experiences that led him to a paranormal world. After getting expelled for poor conduct he is offered a place at Groosham Grange, however this proposal was not by coincidence. On route to his new school, he befriends Jill and Jeffrey and through their discussion it seems that they had each received a letter with differing information to portray this school ideally for their pare [...]

    5. کتاب خیلی خیلی مضحکی بود. از همون چند صفحه ی اوّل از فضای کتاب متنفّر شدم ولی دوست نداشتم نیمه کاره ولش کنم.چند سال بعد شنیدم که رولینگ از این کتاب الهام گرفته برای هری پاتر. ولی ایده ی "مدرسه ی جادوگری" به ذهن هر نویسنده ی فانتزی نویسی ممکنه برسه ولی هری پاتر خیلی فراتر از یه کتا [...]

    6. درست یادم نیست؛ شاید هشت یا نه ساله بودم وقتی این رو خوندم. ولی همون موقع هم ازش چندان خوش‌م نیومد. زیادی شبیهِ هری پاتر بود. اگه دوست‌مون از روی هری پاتر نوشته‌ش، که خب من صحبتی ندارم. اگه هم رولینگ از روی این، هری پاتر رو نوشته خیلی کارِ مضحکی کرده که تقریباً موبه‌مو از این ا [...]

    7. I picked this for a read-aloud for Logan (10), J.B. (8) and Soren (6). Logan gave it 4 stars, J.B. 4 1/3, and Soren 4 1/4. You can tell that Horowitz is a screen writer; there were so many passages at the beginning that read like a movie. Whenever we'd tell someone else about this book they'd say, "Now what movie was this?" The first part was also quite funny. And the whole thing was a bit demented. David Eliot, after being kicked out of his private school is sent to a new private school, Groosh [...]

    8. this book was just horrible. It's about 100 and so pages , and yet it took me weeks to finish. I kept putting it down and picking it back. I literally had to make myself finish. They parents were horrible! That, who is wheel chairbound, was very abusive physically and verbally to both David and his mother. I can't imagine kids reading this. It felt a under written , Harry Potter knockoff.

    9. This is one of those stories like Granny, which has these irritating adults and a powerless child. David gets expelled from his school and he is a disappointment for his crazy and old-fashioned parents. However, Groosham Grange - a new school - invites him to come onboard. David will meet two other students during to the journey to school, Jill and another boy. Misterious activies are happening at the school, as David realizes the colleagues go missing in the middle of the night but appear in th [...]

    10. Es como una historia de Harry Potter pero con personajes más bárbaros.Entretenida para el público infantil que es al que está dirigido, me hubiera encantado leerla de niño.Lo único malo, los papás de David.

    11. C’est sombre, décalé, bourré d’un humour british. Au début j’avoue avoir été très surprise mais j’ai bien ri et je lirai le deuxième tome avec plaisir! Néanmoins, je pense que je n’aurai pas forcément relevé toutes les subtilités lors de mon adolescence. Je suis donc heureuse de l’avoir découverte seulement aujourd’hui !

    12. (SPOILER ALERT) Groosham Grange Book Review (SPOILER ALERT)1) Why I decided to read this book?- I decided to read this book because the author, Anthony Horowitz is one of my favourite authors and I enjoy reading his books.2) Why I liked it (or disliked it)- I liked this book because it was similar to an anime I was watching as they both had a protagonist trapped inside a school, trying to get out. However near the end of the story the book had a complete plot twist (as well as the anime) and tha [...]

    13. Leí este libro cuando estaba en secundaria y es la clase de libro que después de leerlo lo tuve que comprar de lo mucho que me gustó. Tuve el pensamiento pasajero de que es una clase de Harry Potter pero siniestro y menos dramático a pesar del montón de secretos confusos. Y quizá estoy diciendo incoherencias pero en mi defensa, tenía como trece años cuando lo leí. Pero lo volvería a leer.

    14. I read this book for our local K-5th grade school. The front cover is scarier than the story. Which was good for me. I don't like scary books. Yikes! It starts out with David getting expelled from a boarding school. His parents are embarrassed and furious. His dad, in his anger, keeps hurting his mom. It's kind of shocking and funny at the same time, but it is also disrespectful. (Since fourth graders will be reading this, it concerns me a bit.) David is immediately sent to another school called [...]

    15. دو جلد کتاب گروشام گرینویج رو خوندم. جالب بود تو جلد اول مدرسه رو بد معرفی می‌کنه و قهرمان داستان مقابل مدرسه مبارزه می‌کنه و تو جلد دوم به دفاع از مدرسه می‌پردازه. این تغییر جبهه توی دو جلد به نحوی هست که شما مقابلش ایستادگی نمی‌کنی و دقیقا هرکس خودش رو توی هر دو جبهه احساس م [...]

    16. This book is like Harry Potter, but more brutal and wickedly funny. This tale is about David, who comes from a household comprising a very brutal and boorish dad. David has six older siblings, though we never meet any of them, making him the seventh son of the seventh son. After being expelled again from school, he receives an invitation to attend an unusual school located on an island. He is practically forced to attend by his father and the story goes from there.The humour is wicked and I am n [...]

    17. When David Eliot is expelled from an elite private school his father gets a mysterious letter in the mail from a boarding school with a creepy name. And so poor David finds himself shipped out to Groosham Grange a school where the teachers are all monsters and the students all act like their under a spell. With fellow first years Jill and Jeffery, David must find a way to get out of Groosham Grange before Groosham Grange gets him.It is darker than Harry Potter and a lot shorter as well. But it i [...]

    18. اولین کتاب تخیلی که من خوندم پنجم دبستان! خیلی هم دوسش داشتمدر ضمن اولین کتابی بود که در اولین روز از عضویتم تو ی کتابخانه عمومی گرفتم!!

    19. La Granja Groosham te escoje, y si te llama, no puedes desobedecer. Un gran libro de aventuras fantásticas para chicos que se inician en el gusto por la lectura. Ésta obra de Horowitz es anterior a la serie de Potter, y siendo británico también, me imagino que fue alguno de los libros en los que Rowling se basó para su exitosa serie. Si bien la historia no es de gran profundidad, es entretenida y el lector experimentado la terminará en breve.------------------------------------------------ [...]

    20. Reminded me a lot of Harry Potter which I love! Even the 'Is it a stalagmite or a stalactite' comment was there, even though this book was released years earlier than HP. It's like Harry Potter in a little horror jacket absolutely brilliant. The island which the school is on has a creepy forest, a cliff and even a cemetary! The teachers seem kinda strange, the heads of the school are elusive and the classes rather weird. But everyone is really nice to each other no bullying at all and even a lit [...]

    21. Juvenile funny horror. Outrageously awful adults. Unusual resolution in which the hero embraces the “evil” power.

    22. Misterioso de principio a fin, mantiene el suspenso a través de toda la historia y al final se resuelven todos los misterios, me encanta.

    23. وقتی که این کتاب رو خوندم، ابتدایی بودم و از این که دومین دخترِ دومین دخترِ دومین دختر بودم، خیلی هیجان‌زده شدم :دی
