A few months ago, it was announced that J.K. Rowling would be writing three short stories about the Wizarding World. So I decided to take a look at the Pottermore Presents series. I’ll admit, at first I wasn’t that enthusiastic about it since I was really disappointed with the play (But that’s a subject for later). But I have read them, and they are good.
For this article, I’ll change the format a bit, as it’s three novellas written back to back and supposed to be read together. So without further ado, here are the reviews for the Pottermore Presents series.
Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide
This is the third and final book of the Pottermore Presents series. In this one, you’ll learn more about the school and its inhabitants.
This is my least favorite book in the series. Because it’s the one I found the least helpful in the sense that it’s the one with the less information I wanted to learn. It was still fun to read, but I wasn’t as entertained reading it as I was when I read the other two books in the series.
Should you read them?
Actually, it’s not that great of a read. Of course, I learned a lot of new facts about the Wizarding World. But it’s not really necessary, and that’s actually why most fans are pissed off at J.K. Rowling (if you take aside the transphobic stuff). It kind of seems like she can’t let go of the work she did and wants to give away new information that aren’t really necessary.
So if you’re not a hardcore fan of Harry Potter, I would just steer clear of these books.
