GOODREADS’ DESCRIPTION

‘The Ministry of Magic felt strongly, however, that to construct an additional wizarding station in the middle of London would stretch even the Muggles’ notorious determination not to notice magic when it was exploding in front of their faces.’ – J.K. Rowling
Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.

Hogwarts An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide takes you on a journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You’ll venture into the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, learn more about lessons and discover secrets of the castle . . . all at the turn of a page.

 

MY REVIEW

When I was a kid I always dreamed of going to Hogwarts (like almost every other person my age who grew up with the amazing world of Harry Potter). Before seeing the first film, after only have read the first or so books, I had a picture in my head of how Hogwarts looked like. Being young as I were, I couldn’t even imagine how big it was and how many secrets it held. This book descibes a few things about the school. Some things we are all familiar with, like the moving/talking paintings were described more in detail, the same goes for the Chamber of Secrets and some of the ghosts living there.

It was an easy, short and entertaining read and have the same reasoning behind the grade as with the rest in this Pottermore Presents series. If you like Harry Potter, read it, otherwise it wouldn’t really benefitial to read it, therefore a 3.5 out of 5.
