I suggest going through all of the books to make sure nothing like this has happened to you
It was lots of fun reading this book and having it in Latin was a special treat indeed. The translation is great and reading it I felt that the book was written in Latin. The translator, Peter Needham, has done a pukka job at rendering modern language into an ancient tongue, and words such as car (autocinetum) or elevator (anabathrum) seem to come natural. This just goes to show that far from being a dead language Latin has been in use continuously from Roman times right up to the present. New words have been added to Latin just like English gets new words for new things and even though the number of Latin speakers today is much lower than in the past it is still a living language that continues to be used. I wish the rest of the Harry Potter series could be translated as well. It's so much more fun than reading De Bello Gallico, for example, and would a lot more encouraging for students to learn Latin and indeed make learning Latin more fun.
Other great and exciting books are Insula Thesauraria (Latin Edition),Pericla Navarchi Magonis (Latin Edition),Mysterium Arcae Boulé: The Boulé Cabinet Mystery (Latin Edition),Rebilii Crusonis Annalium (Latin Edition), but especially Fabulae Divales: Fairy Tales in Latin (Latin Edition) is great if you like magic and fairy tales.
