‘Quidditch Through The Ages’ by Kennilworthy Whisp [ REVIEW ]

quiddtch

One of my goals for 2016 is to get back to my roots and read more books. As the great Frederick Douglass said, ‘Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.’ Books are a passion – nay, an obsession of mine and always have been. I grew up in the library and my parents fostered my love of reading and learning. With books I have lived a thousand lives, found myself absorbed in different worlds, and learned immensely more than I could have otherwise. I have a goal of reading 100 books this year, along with me!

Quidditch Through The Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp aka J.K. Rowling, is a funny and entertaining new look at Harry Potter’s world. Rowling is a master of the details and this short novel is no exception. Written in a textbook format it goes through the discovery of the sport, variations of it, the evolution of the broomstick, discussion of the use of the broomstick as the preferred method of magical travel and the first golden snitch- a fluffy round bird called a Golden Snidget. Rules and the balls are discussed, and an explanation of all of Britain and Ireland’s teams are listed. The fewer international teams are also documented. While straight forward as it is in textbook format it has Rowling’s characteristic voice and is a joy to read.

That’s book 13 of 100! Read all the reviews here.
