After all the excitement about the release of these books, I was a little disappointed. The title of 'Short Stories' implies that there are actual stories inside, but there aren't.

These books are for the devoted fans who want to know the background on the characters. It gives short biographies of a couple of main characters, it lists all the ministers of the Ministry for Magic over the centuries, and gives the history of Azkaban. The only one I found interesting was the biography of Peeves the Poltergeist.

For me personally, it felt more like reading the authors own characters notes, which had then been fleshed out for this release.

My 11 year old son was disappointed too. ( )

Interesting if you are into the Harry Potter series and want to learn more about the universe it's in. ( )

Definitely worth a quick read for any fan of the world of Witchcraft and Wizardry who’s looking for a bit of inside scoop from the author about certain characters, their motivations, and I especially liked her tidbits on why she picked or created the names for some of those in the stories, I loved those little peaks inside the author’s thought process.

The background on Umbridge's life and peeves beginning was fun to read. ( )
