    My daughter and I are Harry Potter geeks My daughter is currently obsessed with the series and I love that she is such a fan of books when there are so many tv shows and movies and cartoons to entice her away from the library and she gets frustrated when talking to her dad because he simply can't follow the storylines and characters I looked around for cliff notes and this book looked the most promising so I checked it out for my husband Very informative and helps explain the links between books and the interconnectedness of the characters He may not be a fan but after reading this book he can at least have a Harry Potter conversation with our daughter and understand what she is talking about I wish it had been updated to include info on the final books but for 1 5 it was an excellent summary and review

    Good guide to read during the summer of 2005 when I was waiting for Half Blood Prince to be published Organization of this book easily lends itself to review There are four main sections the characters Hogwarts the wizarding world and the muggle reader's world The last section wasn't particularly interesting to me because it focuses on the books versus the movies touring England to see HP sites and web resources Nothing terribly new there However reading the first three sections did refresh my memory about the HP world and made a few connections that I had not previously given much thought toWould I read this guide again Probably not Might I scan it in the future Possibly This book does have a number of useful lists in it For example Boyle has a list of the prisoners in Azkaban during each of the five years Harry is at Hogwarts She has a list of every one of Professor Trelawney's predictions There's a list of different wizards who have received the Order of Merlin These pieces make for interesting reading when I like to look at Harry's world from a different perspective

    Not a completely comprehensive guide but has a few small insights into the origins of some of J K Rowlings' ideas Not something I would buy especially since the story has since evolved

    I received this book for my 8th birthday and I absolutely demolished it literally 10 year old me was sticky taping the pages back to the spine It was a great guide of the nitty gritty of books 1 5 including information like which classroom Divination was held in and has a lot of interesting facts scattered throughout The final part of the book even included ideas on how to throw the best Harry Potter themed party I read and reread this book throughout my childhood and studied it like a textbook A must for the obsessed fan as long as you don't mind that it's missing info on the final two books

    An absolutely excellent guide to the world of Harry Potter this book continues the theme of what made us love Harry Potter in the first place Those books succeeded because they built a world and now this book is here to explain it to us in greater detail I honestly found this a bit dense for what it was dealing with and so it loses points Rowling's narrative may have left gaps but it did so knowing that we needed the story in order to enjoy the world Just the one was not enough Without that guiding link this is of a field guide essentially a nonfiction book about a fictional worldI'm also worried about whether all of this can be considered canon per se as I don't remember every little thing here being in the HP books so that nervousness takes away from the experience of the thing Some people do not care about this; they make their own canon and do not concern themselves with what is official but I cannot do that The world of Harry Potter is what it is because we mutually inhabit it and if it loses those characteristics of mutuality then it loses part of its powerAt any rate this is a great book for die hard Harry Potter fans just not uite perhaps the book I was hoping for

    I waited too long to read this book Obviously after reading the last two books this one could do with a lot information and it was rather silly reading speculations when I know how the series ends However some of the Did You Know bits were pretty cool and it was well organized and informative if not so darn nerdy XD

    Got this as a Christmas present one year It's pretty interesting if you're a fan of the books Puts together a whole heap of information from the series creating character and house profiles lists real world locations translates some of the Britishisms Stuff like that

    Gives a lot of information about the Harry Potter books and moviesIt was sad because it was writtten in 2004so there wasn't any info about the last two booksSometimes it was a bit exhaustingbecause there were long lists about charmspunishmentsarticles from Daily ProphetBut I liked it
