The biggest plus for me is that you can hear JKR's voice so clearly through the entire thing. It's nothing like Cursed Child. This book (and I'm hoping the other two!) just ooze Rowling's writing style, creativity, attention to detail, and love of the wizarding world. This is so refreshing after CC. I cannot wait to read the other two! I will say that some of this information has been available either on Pottermore (which I don't get to that often) or from other interviews, but it's nice to have it all together and on my kindle. My biggest hope for this is that they'll put these into print, either compiled together or with added information so I can add it to my HP collection!
My one complaint about this one is that there is a good amount about all of the characters included except for Professor Trelawney. I REALLY wanted to know more about Professor Trelawney and all that you get is a brief description of her name's history and a vague reason as to why J.K. didn't feel the need to give her such a vivid backstory as the other characters got. I mean, she got about the same amount of attention in this eBook as Silvanus Kettleburn. It's not a major complaint, but for fans of Trelawney like me, it was a bit of a disappointment.
Overall, this is another fantastic Pottermore Presents eBook and I highly recommend it to fans of the Harry Potter series.
In this book, which is part of a Pottermore Presents series, readers learn more about four Hogwart's professors - Minerva McGonagall, Remus Lupin, Sybill Trelawney and Silvanus Kettleburn. I'll admit that with Kettleburn I let my Muggle show when I had to Google his name to find out who he was in the Potter stories.
Ten points from Hufflepuff!
Overall, I think that Harry Potter fans will enjoy this book of short stories. They contain Rowling's vivid descriptions and give readers insight into the backgrounds of some of our favourite secondary characters (and one obscure one - I'm looking at you Kettleburn!).
With these stories, Rowling adds another layer to her already rich characters that we've come to expect and also gives her fans one more opportunity to delve into the magical world that we've come to love.
