Read The Tales of Beedle the Bard

Tales and reveals snippets of information about life at HogwartsA uniuely magical volume with illustrations by the author J K Rowling that will be treasured for years to com. This didn t work at all for me It felt too gimmicky It felt like it was trying too hard to be part of wizarding universe rather than actually being part of it Dumbledore s notes were here in an attempt to guide the reader though in actual fact they just made the experience much worse They felt patronising than anything really That being said it s a fun attempt to create a foundation for Rowling s already vast and complex fantasy world But I don t think it needs it If you look at Tolkien and The Silmarillion that book actually added something to middle earth It builds upon the groundwork and explores the full history of the writing It gives you so much detail Granted this is an altogether different creature but I don t think it adds much to the wizarding world There are glimpses of this book through the full Harry Potter series and we hear about its nature but I don t think seeing it here changes muchIf anything my perceptions of the book are lessoned because it just didn t live up to expectations It s supposed to be this legendary book containing dark stories perhaps a bit similar to Grimm s fairy tales in the real world Generations and generations of wizards have read it and it is always raved about by the characters It s supposed to be something fantastic and it s not It s a book of very very basic stories that do not have the ability to stand on their own feet It cannot be read in isolation from the main work and it is terribly short lacking any sense of substance or literary merit All in all it s a book written for the strongest of Harry Potter fans I love the series too but because of this it doesn t mean this book is automatically going to receive my admiration It s a good idea though it is very poorly executed
