Book Review: Quidditch Through The Ages, by Kennilworthy Whisp (JK Rowling)

Like I said once, there are some books that are intriguing because they are found in books. It was a delight to see three such from the Harry Potter books published as the Hogwarts Library series.

Quidditch Through The Ages is first found in the first book when Hermione gives it to Harry. I didn’t know what to expect from the book itself. Like the other two in the Hogwarts Library series, this too is presented well, like a library book with a borrowing card printed at the front and such.

I enjoyed reading about the history, in particular the descriptions of ancient Quidditch balls, and the Quidditch moves like the Bludger Backbeat etc. And also, the Quidditch teams of Britain and Ireland. It was nice to read more about Ron’s favorite team, The Chudley Cannons and Ginny’s favorite team the Holyhead Harpies.

It’s fun to revisit the world of magic that I got to know through Harry Potter. This book is wonderful to read for a Harry Potter fan, and I’m glad to have it in my shelf.

Poetry and writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
