    “I've read worse.” - Rita Skeeter on Quidditch Through the AgesI love this super witty and funny companion to the Harry Potter books. It's been created with such love for detail, it's clear to see that Joanne had much fun writing it. Maybe even as much fun as me reading it.My favourite parts are the history of Quidditch and how it spread to other countries and continents. I especially loved the part about New Zealand.Now, if you love Harry Potter and haven't yet read this you should reconsider your life choices. Get a move!Find more of my books on Instagram

    Game On!!!GO TEAM!I didn't know what to expect about this book written by the magical J.K. Rowling about the "history" of the magic sport of Quidditch.However, I was happily surprised that while some chapters explaining the rules of the "sport" are kinda tiresome, they were the few, since other chapters were really amusing and entertaining.You "learn" why the decission of using brooms to fly.Also, you "learn" about the official Quidditch teams on the British league, but even also you will learn about how popular or not is this sport in other countries and continents.It's a book written with the heart of Rowling allowing to appreciate an important element of the magical world of Harry Potter beyond of what you may knew about on the book series.You won't be dissapointed......and don't let go away that Golden Snitch!!!

    Es ist einfach der Wahnsinn, was J.K. Rowling für eine Fantasie besitzt. So ein detailreiches Handbuch über die Geschichte des Quidditch im Wandel der Zeiten mit vielen verschiedenen Spielern, Mannschaften und Anekdoten. Dieses Büchlein enthält darüber hinaus auch einige liebevoll skizzierte Zeichnungen, bspw. von einem fliegenden Besen oder dem Quidditchspielfeld. Also bekommt auch dieses Buch aus der Hogwarts Bibliothek von mir nicht nur 5 Sterne, sondern auch wieder eine uneingeschränkte Leseempfehlung für alle Harry Potter Fans! :)

    This was awesome! I can't believe I've never read it before! I gave this 5 out of 5 not because it was a phenomenal work of literary fiction, but because of the time and effort that J.K. Rowling put into creating this amazing sport, the history, the teams, the rules, everything is phenomenally done! I love Quidditch, and being a total sports nerd this was perfect for me. The coolest thing for me was when the book discussed Canadian teams and a team called the Moose Jaw Meteorites were mentioned. They are a team that after they win they fly around with fiery sparks coming from their broom ends in magical formations which is highly anticipated by the viewers. Moose Jaw is a town not far from where I live and they have planes called Snowbirds that fly together in the most amazing formations and people from all over come to watch. J.K. Rowling really put in her all with this by diving into the research. I definitely suggest this if you're interested in learning more about this magical sport, and just as a little extra Harry Potter read! 5 out of 5!

    Slightly better than FB, this one reads like a long a boring textbook on the history of a wizarding game.But that's probably because it's exactly that. :)Don't get me wrong. It's fascinating in its way, but I've never cared much for ANY kind of sports history. It bores me to tears. :) At least this has magic, no? It's written well. It still just happens to be a short history.

    ‘I’ve read worse.’ – Rita Skeeter, Daily Prophet And I was like SHUT UP, you old douche-bag! Also, that object of a thief’s curse is amusing.So, let’s dive into the Quidditch Guide! I usually don’t indulge myself much in sports section but Quidditch has always been alluring one!The originality of game – initially known as“Kwidditch” is quite peculiarly appealing. The traces of those borrowed from a witch’s diary are a really fun part, actually the way she described the game. But the all the bladder business of dragons, goats used in the game is really creepy. The Anti-Muggle precautions are bizarre, and types of fouls totally hilarious. I expected it to drag or bore me but it never wavered my attention for a single second. The continents wise categorization along with the team descriptions is, in fact, detailed one but I demand more illustrations. The Snitch which was at first used as a Live bird – Snidget! Later on, The Ministry of Magic banned its use in the game replacing it with charmed Snitch.And all of the sudden nostalgia hits you while relishing the pages – The first game of Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley, Fred and George Weasley (*actually almost the whole Weasley Family, even Ginny played it) and all that cheering for the house – Gryffindor! And of course how can I forget the World Cup: P.S.: And before Ginny says – SHUT IT! Go and read it.

    Just like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, this is an informative book. We get to learn the history of Quidditch (a popular sport in the Wizarding World.), other games using Broomsticks, Quidditch Teams, Game rules etc.. It's really a fascinating read and I enjoyed it :)EVERYTHING IS NOSTALGIC.

    Prvo izdanje knjige "Kvidič kroz vekove" sam dobila 2002. od svojih kumova, te mi je ona ostala na prvom mestu i nakon objavljivanja drugih knjiga iz Hogvortske biblioteke tokom 2014. godine.Čitajući serijal upoznali smo se sa igrom koja je u čarobnjačkom svetu popularna onoliko koliko je fudbal ili košarka popularna u našem svetu Normalaca, ako ne i više. Osnovna pravila kvidiča smo savladali zajedno sa Harijem koji je, nakon što je pokazao zavidnu veštinu letenja, bio izabran za tragača. Naravno, kvidič nije oduvek bio onakav kakvim smo ga mi doživeli u serijalu, te je ovaj vodič pred nama kako bismo pre svega upoznali nastanak igre, a potom se i dobro zabavili čitajući najrazličitije opise pravila i komičnih situacija sa terena.Postoji toliko detalja koji su fantastični i koji mame osmeh na lice, ali ipak bih izdvojila timove koji igraju za Britaniju i Irsku, kao i opise popularnih poteza koje čarobnjaci i veštice imaju prilike da gledaju na utakmicama. Takođe mi je jako simpatična kartica zaduženja knjige iz biblioteke koja se nalazi na samom početku, a koja je ispunjena dobro poznatim imenima. Super mi je to što se imena i datumi razlikuju u ova dva izdanja iz 2002. i 2014.

    Funnier and more interesting than Fantastic Beasts. Also, it read more like a genuine Hogwarts text book than Fantastic Beasts did, which was just basically a giant list with a brief summary of various creatures. This had far more magic and history and information in it.

    So, in the increasing hysteria mounting over the advent of the final Harry Potter book, I have been reading anything I can get my hands on before we all know how it ends and the fun is over! This teeny little book is quite funny and reads in about 10 minutes. Written exclusively for charity, it includes a libary check-out card in the front with "H. Potter" on the final line, as well as an explanatory foreward by Dumbledore himself. Utterly charming, it is more evidence that Rowling's universe is systematically and meticulously plotted out to the last detail, including the similarities between the golden snitch and the now endangered bird, the Golden Snidget!

    Oh my god! This was bad! I could have died if I didn't skip like 20 pages! This contained so many unnecessary details!!!! Yeah there were some interesting facts that I enjoyed but most of the book was blah blah blah I hate that I rated 2 stars to a book that belongs to my all time favorite book series But I had to!

    Another little book Rowling wrote in order to collect money for Comic Relief. Another book Harry Potter supposedly read during his time at Hogwarts. This one contains the history and rules for Quidditch, the famous wizard sport. I'm not much of a sports person myself, but I do watch the Soccer World Championship and European Championship games so I know what kind of atmosphere Rowling was aiming for and she managed to evoke it (in the actual series as well as here).Did you know that people are actually competing in Quidditch nowadays? :D I sure would like to see that. *lol*Anyway, anybody expecting a story, be warned, because this is the wrong book for you then. It's just little tidbits of quirky information that give a deeper insight into the wizarding world and show just how well thought-out it is and always has been.

    Fun to read for fans of the Harry Potter series! I am now a loyal fan of the Quidditch team The Chudley Cannons. Their change of motto from 'We shall conquer' to 'Let's all just keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best' is hilarious

    To be honest I hate sports, and I hate people who like sports, and I hate people who like people who like sports. Nah, joking. I just suck at P.E, and I'm terrible in anything related to it, including sports rules, etc.But this book is an exeption; I enjoyed it a lot, it was funny and entretaining. Its hard to believe that such a thin book took me more than two months to finish.To conclude, now I understand why Harry and Ron loved Quiddich.

    This was a great companion to the Harry Potter series, and it definitely answered some of my nagging questions about Quidditch! It was fun to see how the game developed over the centuries, and to hear about some of the most famous teams (the one about the Wigtown Wanderers made me laugh... that Walter and his meat cleaver... oh goodness.) I also found it really cool how America was the place where Quidditch was the least popular! J.K. Rowling is a sneaky one...

    Das war eigentlich ein re-read, da ich das Buch bereits mit 10 oder 11 schon mal gelesen habe, mich aber nicht mehr erinnern konnte. Quidditch war ja nie das spannendste für mich an den Potter Büchern, aber der einmalige Witz und Charme haben mich dann doch einigermaßen überzeugt.

    3.9/5 starsThis review is originally posted on The Bookish Girl--Brutal yet exciting, Quidditch is a sport that we all love. (Don't tell me you don't, I'm not gonna believe you)This book has EVERYTHING that you need to learn about Quidditch. From the transformation of the game, to its rules, famous teams and different types of fouls! They are clearly described and there are pictures to help you visualize, which makes it very easy to read and understand; and I finished it in one day *happy dance*I'm surprised to see that the most interesting part is not the content itself, but the little "things" in this book. Like there is a little sheet keeping track of all the borrowers and Miss Prince's -- The Hogwarts librarian -- funny warning to students who damage the book. The little reviews by different wizards are so funny that I couldn't help but chuckle. I love how they include these little details to make this book "real".If you are a true Potterhead, I highly recommend this book to you for it allows you to get to know the wizard world better. A Potterhead simply couldn't resist a book that is related to Harry Potter *wink*. And if you haven't read the Harry Potter books? I seriously urge you to read them first and come back for this! I would cast a spell to make you read them if I could ;)©thebookishgirl--You can get the book from Bookdepository
