It’s a pleasure when I can escape into a fictional world and take a break from reality. Hogwarts and the magical world that the Harry Potter series creates is just one of the worlds I frequent. And yet, there are secrets that the world has still to reveal.
A Muggle can’t fathom the idea of a Ministry for Magic. As Vernon Dursley put it, “People like you in government? No wonder the country’s going to the dogs.” And yet, for some peace in the Wizarding world, that ministry (and by extension, the Minister) is vital. Over the course of the Harry Potter series, we see three Ministers (not counting the puppet Pius). Who were some of the other Ministers of Magic, and what did they contribute? How did Azkaban come into existence?
This short book shares these details, and also some other ones, like more details about perhaps the most despised character in the Harry Potter series. I loved reading every bit of it. My favorite parts in the book were those relating to a favorite poltergeist and a confused Potions master! There’s always magic left to discover, so that also helped to make the book more interesting. My only lament, as with the Guide, was that the book was so short.
