Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

‘No Muggle Prime Minister has ever set foot in the Ministry of Magic, for reasons most succinctly summed up by ex-Minister Dugald McPhail (term of office 1858-1865): “their puir wee braines couldnae cope wi’ it.”’ – J.K. Rowling

Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing from the Pottermore archives: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com with some exclusive new additions. 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.

These stories of power, politics and pesky poltergeists give you a glimpse into the darker side of the wizarding world, revealing the ruthless roots of Professor Umbridge, the lowdown on the Ministers for Magic and the history of the wizarding prison Azkaban. You will also delve deeper into Horace Slughorn’s early years as Potions master at Hogwarts - and his acquaintance with one Tom Marvolo Riddle.

Pra quem já é fã dos livros de Harry Potter e quer saber um pouco mais do universo mágico criado por J. K. Rowling, esse pequeno livro é muito interessante.
Contém o humor caraterístico da autora, que demonstra sua criatividade construindo bases para várias coisas mostradas nos 7 livros da saga.

I gave five stars to this book because I love the magical world of J. K. Rowling and I had a really great time reading this book. It was fun! I liked the way they put all the stories together. It got practical and easy to read.

É sempre excitante saber a origem e os porquês das coisas, fator que torna o livro muito atraente para os fãs de Harry Potter (eu recomendo a todos os fãs de Harry!). Eu gostei muito de aprender palavras novas e associar com personagens de Hogwarts; por exemplo, "peeve" e "pet peeve" agora ampliam meu vocabulário de modo definitivo pois me lembram de "Peeves" e daí a lembrança de algo que irrita ao extremo. Também gostei muito de aprender o motivo de algumas escolhas da Rowling, como por exemplo o fato de o arqui-inimigo de Harry, Snape, ser o professor de Poções.

*** ALERT ***

If Harry Potter and the Cursed Child disappointed you and has you worried about plunking down your hard-earned cash for another book, worry not. This is J K Rowling in her element. Outstanding.

A – No complaints here. These bits and pieces are of special interest to Harry Potter devotees, but will interest many others, such as me.

To give a feel for the editing, and the style and flow of this work, I am posting two brief excerpts below.

Excerpt

‘…AZKABAN
BY J.K. ROWLING

Azkaban has existed since the fifteenth century and was not originally a prison at all. The island in the North Sea upon which the first fortress was built never appeared on any map, Muggle or wizarding, and is believed to have been created, or enlarged, by magical means.

The fortress upon it was originally home to a little-known sorcerer who called himself Ekrizdis. Evidently extremely powerful, but of unknown nationality, Ekrizdis, who is believed to have been insane, was a practitioner of the worst kinds of Dark Arts. Alone in the middle of the ocean, he lured, tortured and killed Muggle sailors, apparently for pleasure, and only when he died, and the concealment charms he had cast faded away, did the Ministry of Magic realise that either island or building existed. Those who entered to investigate refused afterwards to talk of what they had found inside, but the least frightening part of it was that the place was infested with Dementors.

Many in authority thought Azkaban an evil place that was best destroyed. Others were afraid of what might happen to the Dementors infesting the building if they deprived them of their home. The creatures were already strong and impossible to kill; many feared a horrible revenge if they took away a habitat where they appeared to thrive. The very walls of the building seemed steeped in misery and pain, and the Dementors were determined to cling to it. Experts who had studied buildings built with and around Dark magic contended that Azkaban might wreak…’

Excerpt 2

J.K. Rowling’s thoughts

The name ‘Azkaban’ derives from a mixture of the prison ‘Alcatraz’, which is its closest Muggle equivalent, being set on an island, and ‘Abaddon’, which is a Hebrew word meaning ‘place of destruction’ or ‘depths of hell’.

Bottom Line:

Five enthusiastic stars out of five.

If you buy the book based on my review and become disappointed, especially, I do want to know that and I want to understand how I can improve as a book reviewer. Just please be polite.

3.0 de 5 estrelas Good reference material, I guess? 2 de novembro de 2016
Por Miss Faye - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Honestly, this is just a bunch of Pottermore articles mushed into a book. It's nice to have them in one place, though, especially since some articles get taken down without notice, and the subject matter was interesting! If anything, you can point to this book as definitive reference material for whatever you're writing. And it WAS well-written.

However, I have one complaint - this publication was an opportunity to expand on a few already-established articles. I can think of one often-forgotten poltergeist who could use some more canon expansion... On the surface, we hardly know the guy! In a book with nice character development for minor characters like Slughorn and Umbridge, why did Peeves get the short end of the stick?!
3.0 de 5 estrelas Some interesting bits but not quite as magical as the other two books in the trilogy. 23 de fevereiro de 2017
Por Laurie@The Baking Bookworm - Publicada na Amazon.com

This is the second book in the Pottermore Presents trilogy that digs a little deeper into some of the characters and magical elements of Rowling's famous universe. While I'm a huge Potterhead this was my least favourite book in the trilogy. There are some interesting tidbits but the portion dedicated to the Misters of Magic was overly lengthy and I can't say that Horace Slughorn is a character that I was interested in knowing more about.

That said, it's always nice to jump back in to Rowling's magical world and I enjoyed learning more about this history of Azkaban prison and the mischief-maker Peeves. For Potterheads, overall, this trilogy series is a nice way to give readers some background knowledge on secondary characters, magical items and creatures.

I loved this, and enjoy having all these stories collected in place for me to read. The stories gave us more details about people and places we previously knew and allowed us to come back home to Hogwarts again! I really enjoyed the facts about the Ministers of Magic. History and fiction weave together in these stories so effective!y that you'd think it might be a textbook! Loved the input from JK on how she did it
