Just a bunch of recaps; no real "guide" or academic analysis. ( )

I enjoyed reading it but I would recomend this book to 15 yearolds because it is so difficult to read. Your constantly going back and forth from the Harry Potter movies to the Harry Potter books, and then back agin to J.K Rowling's life. ( )

To the memory of my mother-in-law,
