Si estás estudiando inglés, este vocabulario es sencillo, no tiene grandes descripciones que hagan la lectura pesada. Y, al tratarse de historias cortas, puedes dividir tu tiempo y nunca encontrarás capítulos interminables como en una novela histórica.
Después de 7 libros (8 contando la obra de teatro) sigo teniendo la sensación de que el universo de Harry Potter esconde mucho más secretos, y esta colección de 3 libros te ayuda a descubrir unos cuantos. Son 100% recomendables y, además, el precio es estupendo.

‘Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists’ is an eclectic mixture of biographies concerning three of Hogwarts’ teachers and Peeves the Poltergeist, a history of Azkaban, a chronological list of those who have been Minister for Magic and some short sections where Rowling offers some insight into what inspired here to create various aspects and characters.
The biographies cover some of the more ‘dubious’ teachers at Hogwarts. They provide some background information on their lives that goes some way to offering an explanation for their later character and actions.
Although the Azkaban section is interesting and the Ministry one fairly informative (albeit in a brief way) they only seem superficially related to the other content. The section about Peeves is even more independent and seems to only have been tagged on at the end because his name begins with ‘P’.
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.
A gripe of mine is that they aren't particularly long, but then again they never claimed to be. They can be read within an hour, perhaps a little quicker or slower depending on your reading ability and speed.
Having followed the whole series since the beginning there was no doubt that I was going to purchase these on the day they came out. I am glad I did as they are interesting.
The power and politics book goes into great detail about all of the ministers of magic and the reasoning behind them leaving. It also goes into detail about azkaban and talks in detail about poltergeists and the dreaded Umbridge!!
The heroism and hardship book goes into details about McGonagall and Lupin and the difficulties they faced in their life. It compliments this information further by talking about animagi and werewolves and gives more information on these subjects.
The incomplete and unreliable book gives information on the authors decisions and plots and why she chose them. It also details certain artefacts and places and how they came into the potter universe.
Overall I really enjoyed these books! They are something that, like the books, I will read over and over again. The information included within these books are fun and helpful and give more insight into the world we already know and love.
I would definately recommend these books to any Harry Potrer fan!

I really enjoyed the insight into Rowlings developement of some of the characters, but Umbridge in particular. Although I love the series, I haven't spent too much time looking into her thought process behind certain characters so this was really exciting - I never imagined Rowling based her characters on her own teachers!
Equally there is a kind of Ministry-through-the-ages section which timelines all of the Ministers so far. This was great - so many familiar names and the Ministry started to seem all the more sordid once I recognised some of the links. I also thought the history of Azkaban was brilliant! I could have read a whole book on it actually!
For die-hard fans, I don't expect this will contain anything especially new. Most of this was included on Pottermore at some stage. But it's nice to have it all in one place now to make the library look a little more magical! The brief histories and the occassional piece from Rowlings development stages were definitely a great addition. I hope they publish more than the three novellas already out there!
While the stories do contain a few interesting facts that weren't revealed in the books, a lot of the information was actually included in the main series and so these biographies don't do a lot to expand what we previously knew. Umbrage's history is probably the most interesting, and certainly gives the reader a lot more reasons to hate the terrifying pink cupcake. I was disappointed by how short the Quirrell and Peeves chapters were as these were the two characters who I didn't know a lot about, therefore a more detailed history would have been interesting.
The bonus material in this volume was also hit and miss. The section about potions was excellent and it's always interesting to learn where Rowling got her inspiration from. The huge list of former Ministers of Magic, however, was really dry and I found myself skim reading it to get to Slughorn's chapter.
