Qudditch Through The Ages by J.K.Rowling Review

This is part of a mini series of books that have been created for the purpose to support charities. There are three books that revolve around the Harry Potter world. The main purpose of the books is to give more information to the wizarding world while also any money made from the books goes straight to Comic Relief and Lumos.

Story

Did you know that: there are 700 ways of committing a foul in Quidditch? The game first began to evolve on Queerditch Marsh – What Bumphing is? That Puddlemere United is oldest team in the Britain and Ireland league (founded 1163). All this information and much more could be yours once you have read this book: this is all you could ever need to know about the history, the rules – and the breaking of the rules – of the noble wizarding sport of Quidditch.

My Opinion

This book is really short, it is less than 100 pages so it will take you less than an hour to read through, as some of the pages have nothing on them and some have got pictures to help you understand what is being said in the book. This doesn’t mean it doesn’t come with a lot of information as trust me on this, it does. Anything you have wanted to know about quidditch is in this book, whether it is the fouls or some of the quidditch teams that are around the world.

Obviously this not like every other book that is written by J.K.Rowling so I don’t think it should be reviewed to the same standard. This is more of a non-fictional book about a fictional world so that is how I am going to be reviewing this book. For me this a perfect addition to read if you are wanting to find out more about the world that the Harry potter. I am glad that the first time I have read this book was just after reading the first book in the series, this because if you are starting new with the wizarding world then you might as well find out as much information about the sport that is mentioned the most during the book.

Having the drawings really does help, this is because being able to see the difference from when the game was first invented to how it is shown in the movie or described in the book is just so much better than actually having to use your imaginations. It was also great finding out more about the rules and what si considered to be a foul in a quidditch game.

Overall it is a really short read that has got a lot of information about a fictional world, but if you wanting to find out more about the wizarding world then this is going to be perfect for you. The price is £5 which I do think is a bit much but as all the money is going towards a charity then it is worth it.
