{Book Review} Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling



Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling

Rating: 4 / 5 Stars

To be honest, I probably would not like this book if I wasn’t such a big fan of the Harry Potter series. But I’m a Potterhead, so I did. The stories were mediocre–they were certainly interesting, yes, but they were nothing amazing. Aside from the Deathly Hallows (which is only memorable because of its significance in the last Harry Potter book), none of the stories made a big impact. What made the book interesting were the many footnotes. The footnotes had background on the stories and characters as well as wizarding history, as researched by Professor Dumbledore with occasional updated information from Rowling. Those were pretty fun to read. Another noteworthy thing is the difference between Muggle fairytales and Children’s stories and Wizarding ones.
