He de decir que me ha resultado muy curiosa toda la información que se extrae de estos relatos. Algunas veces en clave de humor y otras con una visión bastante más oscura y mística, si eres fan de Harry Potter vas a disfrutar muchísimo. Ojalá J.K.Rowling siga escribiendo más novelas, porque ha probado de sobra que el universo de Harry Potter es inmenso y que ella tiene talento de sobra para no dejar nunca de añadir más material. Bueno no, son estupendos, y con este precio más. 100% recomendados.

‘Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies’ consist of the biographies of four teachers from Hogwarts. It thus provides some background information and history about these characters which wasn’t covered in the regular novels. This expands these characters and gives a further insight into their personalities.
The four sections are very differently weighted with much more material being given to McGonagall and Lupin whose biographies are particularly informative and arouse quite a level of pathos. In comparison the section on Silvanus Kettleburn, certainly one of the least known of the teachers, is remarkably brief and not too enlightening.
Each of these biographies are accompanied by a couple of exerts that generally relate in some way to that particular teacher’s subject or something related to them; for example Lupin’s biography is accompanied by a brief discussion on werewolves in the wizarding world. They also come with a few thoughts from the author herself about how she came to create these characters and what influenced their creation.
Essentially this is a publication designed for Harry Potter fans that after absorbing the novels and films are looking for a bit more background information; particularly on things that the scope of the novels might not have covered in much detail. It isn’t aimed at new readers at all and assumes a certain level of previous knowledge. For its target audience, however, it enriches the world of witchcraft and wizardry created by Rowling.
Overall, it is a good quick read and adds that little extra. JK Rowling also adds little extras after each little bit as well, so you get to know her thoughts. It’s not written in depth and passionately like the series, as this is a short read and four stories/characters are squeezed in to these 60+ pages. Lupins I would say, in my opinion, is definitely written the best. Possibly because it’s also JK Rowlings favourite character and she put more effort and pride into writing that section. Also possibly because it made me get all emotional again... Damn you J.K. Rowling!
Anywho, I was very excited about this series of books and oh wow did they blow my mind. I loved learning about the history of Hogwarts and more about the supporting cast of Harry Potter. This is what I want more of. Who knew Minerva McGonagal’s past was so fraught with heartache or the exact details of Professor Trewlany’s legacy?
This series will satiate the appetite of any HP fan….but don’t expect it to last too long. WE. WANT. MORE!

These characters are incredible in their own right but now that I know that little bit more about who they are I feel connected even further to the magic of the world she has so expertly created. I would never say it possible to overlook any potter characters but I would say they can go unappreciated, (especially Lupin and Trelawney) doing as she has with this book allows a spotlight to be shone on these creations that may otherwise have stayed almost shadowed by others. I cannot wait to now reread the entire potter series to see if my impressions of it have at all altered as a result of now having learnt more about these wonderful people. Needless to say I am very excited to continue reading from the Hogwarts library collection to see what other delights and depths these characters hold. Thank-you Jo you have as always my undying devotion to your genius and to the world you have created.

Synopsis (from Goodreads): ‘Minerva was the Roman goddess of warriors and wisdom. William McGonagall is celebrated as the worst poet in British history. There was something irresistible to me about his name, and the idea that such a brilliant woman might be a distant relative of the buffoonish McGonagall.’ – J.K. Rowling. Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com with some exclusive new additions. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world. These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way.
This one had me welling up! The chapter on Remus Lupin was just really moving. I mean it was already clear both from his demeanor and the things that were revealed in the Harry Potter series, that he'd had a hard life, but this was putting it all in one place and in detail. It gave me a greater apprectation for a character that already struck a chord.
I also really liked learning more about McGonagall, there was so many little extra bits that showed just how well thought out the character was and I thought that it rounded her out as a character, even more so than in the books.
It was also good to learn more about the Maurauders in the McGonagall and Lupin chapters!
