    About J.K. Rowling


    1. See also Robert GalbraithAlthough she writes under the pen name J.K Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name As she had no middle name, she chose K as the second initial of her pen name, from her paternal grandmother Kathleen Ada Bulgen Rowling She calls herself Jo and has said, No one ever called me Joanne when I was young, unless they were angry Following her marriage, she has sometimes used the name Joanne Murray when conducting personal business During the Leveson Inquiry she gave evidence under the name of Joanne Kathleen Rowling In a 2012 interview, Rowling noted that she no longer cared that people pronounced her name incorrectly.Rowling was born to Peter James Rowling, a Rolls Royce aircraft engineer, and Anne Rowling n e Volant , on 31 July 1965 in Yate, Gloucestershire, England, 10 miles 16 km northeast of Bristol Her mother Anne was half French and half Scottish Her parents first met on a train departing from King s Cross Station bound for Arbroath in 1964 They married on 14 March 1965 Her mother s maternal grandfather, Dugald Campbell, was born in Lamlash on the Isle of Arran Her mother s paternal grandfather, Louis Volant, was awarded the Croix de Guerre for exceptional bravery in defending the village of Courcelles le Comte during the First World War.Rowling s sister Dianne was born at their home when Rowling was 23 months old The family moved to the nearby village Winterbourne when Rowling was four She attended St Michael s Primary School, a school founded by abolitionist William Wilberforce and education reformer Hannah More Her headmaster at St Michael s, Alfred Dunn, has been suggested as the inspiration for the Harry Potter headmaster Albus Dumbledore.As a child, Rowling often wrote fantasy stories, which she would usually then read to her sister She recalls that I can still remember me telling her a story in which she fell down a rabbit hole and was fed strawberries by the rabbit family inside it Certainly the first story I ever wrote down when I was five or six was about a rabbit called Rabbit He got the measles and was visited by his friends, including a giant bee called Miss Bee At the age of nine, Rowling moved to Church Cottage in the Gloucestershire village of Tutshill, close to Chepstow, Wales When she was a young teenager, her great aunt, who Rowling said taught classics and approved of a thirst for knowledge, even of a questionable kind, gave her a very old copy of Jessica Mitford s autobiography, Hons and Rebels Mitford became Rowling s heroine, and Rowling subsequently read all of her books.Rowling has said of her teenage years, in an interview with The New Yorker, I wasn t particularly happy I think it s a dreadful time of life She had a difficult homelife her mother was ill and she had a difficult relationship with her father she is no longer on speaking terms with him She attended secondary school at Wyedean School and College, where her mother had worked as a technician in the science department Rowling said of her adolescence, Hermione a bookish, know it all Harry Potter character is loosely based on me She s a caricature of me when I was eleven, which I m not particularly proud of Steve Eddy, who taught Rowling English when she first arrived, remembers her as not exceptional but one of a group of girls who were bright, and quite good at English Sean Harris, her best friend in the Upper Sixth owned a turquoise Ford Anglia, which she says inspired the one in her books.

    1. Read all three and just loved them all. If you want more details about the Harry Potter world then make sure to pick this one up. Rowling goes into a bit of detail and even adds some back stories to secondary characters like Professor McGonagall and Professor Lupin. I particularly like the last volume since it was all about Hogwarts ✋️

    2. I can't emphasize it enough: if you are a fan of the Harry Potter series, READ THIS. I don't know why I'd not heard of it- I only found it searching through books labelled "Harry Potter" in my libraries Overdrive collection. As fans may well know J.K.Rowling thought up a lot more detail and background to Harry's world than is fully explored in the books, and these collections delve into a lot of that information. It was so wonderful being immersed in the world again and learning new things-almos [...]

    4. Actual Rating: 4.5 stars and 100 points to Gryffindor.Find background stories, trivia and interesting thoughts galore in this magnificent collection of shorts. Hey-yo!I didn't think that this collection would impact me quite so much. I mean I already know, and have processed the books. Right? Boy was I wrong. J.K. had me with McGonagall, Lupin and even Slughorn. I was tearing up for real y'all. Thanks a bunch J.K.That tidbit about Neville's sorting. OHMERGARD! Have you read a more gosh darned th [...]

    5. Basically just all the info already given to us on Pottermore, but in a convenient 3 mini-ebook format. Also, rereading all of this made it even more clear that JK Rowling def didn't really write Cursed Child- SHE HATES TIME TURNERS.

    6. Voy a repetir lo que vengo diciendo en los comentarios. Superó lo que yo había pensado que iba a ser, es más que un conjunto de textitos: para hacer estos ebooks, no agarraron los relatos que encontraron y los pegaron uno a continuación del otro, sino que se preocuparon por ver cómo organizarlos y enlazarlos para que hubiera un hilo. Sigo sin estar de acuerdo con que sean tres (por eso yo elegí esta "edición" para poner acá, y los cuento como uno). Podría ser un libro con tres partes tr [...]

    7. Estos tres libros cortos me parecieron muy mehLa verdad es que si bien es interesante leer más sobre ciertos personajes o temas creo que hacer libros sobre, aunque sean cortos, fue demasiado(y más aún venderlos :S) Pero bueno, nunca está mal leer más de Harry Potter y su mundo :D.

    9. As a die-hard Harry Potter fan, I love anything about Harry Potter, except cursed child. This book is neat, informative and fun to read.

    10. 2.5I enjoyed parts of this collection, but by no means all of it. A fair bit (especially with regard to characters prominently featured in the book) featured a lot of information that wasn't new. It was either explicitly stated in the books or strongly implied. There were some backstories and origins to various characters and magical objects that I was interested in reading about, and I particularly liked the parts of the book called "J.K.'s thoughts" where she went into how she got the ideas fo [...]

    11. Harry Potter universe is a gift that keeps on giving. This collection of short stories, background and glimpses of history, not just give you a context to several characters ,plots and objects but also gives you a peek into what went on in Rowling's mind while creating them. From McGonagall's life to the history of cauldrons, there is a lot of thought that has gone into each of the creations. Nothing has been written randomly. Everything has been meticulously researched and each character brilli [...]

    12. What more can I say? Except The Cursed Child (which we all agree should never exist), I am in love with every single story in the Harry Potter universe. Reading anything from this series makes me believe that reading slump is a myth or I suddenly obtain the superpower to read non-stop.But of course, my reading nirvana is temporary because as soon as I step out from this world, I am back to my temperamental and a slightly lazy reader self.

    13. This is a good book to read if you're a HP fan! It gave further insight into some of the characters, and had a lot of Rowling's ideas explained. I loved learning the meaning behind some of the names and purposes to different spells/potions/castle quirks throughout the series.

    15. Fun fan fiction for any Harry Potter fan. Lupin's section made me super sad for him:/

    17. Nice elaboration of some elements but not as in depth as I thought it would be

    18. So great to get some additional insights into the world I grew up with.

    19. This is a collection of snippets and background information on personalities, places, magical things and a lot more on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. :)This was like a trip to memory lane. I love it and I felt nostalgic all through out the duration of reading this book. ^_^This almost made me read The Cursed Child but that's another story for another time, lol.I have this urge to re-read all the Harry Potter books I used to do that each year but maybe I can do it this year? We'll see :)

    20. I liked this collection, mostly for the new info on Mcgonagall and Lupin and the nostalgia factor :)

    21. I feel a bit misled. I thought this was full of short stories about characters from the Potterverse. However, it has more of a historical background nature to it. It's almost like an encyclopedia for the Harry Potter books. There's still interesting tidbits in it, directly from J.K. Rowling but I wasn't immersed in it like I would be from one of her books.

    22. Encyclopedic-style entries. Lovely back stories to McGonagall and Lupin. Most importantly, discussion of time-turners places the Cursed Child firmly into fan fiction and rights my world re: Harry Potter.

    23. A collection of some J.K. Rowling's notes on some side character, events and places of the Harry Potter story. It was nice to read.

    24. First one was good second was fine the last was brilliant.

    25. I'm not very interested in the Harry Potter movie franchise, or Pottermore, and I haven't even glanced at whatever weird American Hogwarts books J.K. has been hyping up, but I still reread the original series every summer. This book fits in perfectly. I don't know that I would call the short entries "short stories" (most were about two kindle pages) but they were delightful little tidbits of canon Harry Potter trivia and background story. I can't say that I know you'll like it if you're very int [...]

    26. Each of the three books is this collection is yet another collection of short pieces that Rowling wrote for Pottermore, the online site for Potter fans everywhere. If you like the Harry Potter universe, the pieces are just lovely - little bits of details about all sorts of random things, yet so well organized and annotated that it all fits together. Almost every piece is also followed up by a note from Rowling about her thoughts or inspiration for the topic. More than anything, the essays show h [...]

    27. This fun collection of Harry Potter snippets/bonus material was enlightening. I enjoyed reading the backstories for characters like Lupin and McGonagall. Learning Rowling's inspiration for names was very cool too. Even the historical trivia, such as the listing of past Ministers of Magic, was interesting.I had to dock this collection one star for being difficult to procure. I was able to borrow a digital copy from the library, but I wasn't able to access it via Kindle. I consider myself pretty f [...]

    28. An entertaining must-read for anyone who's already a Potter fan and a reader of the books. This isn't by any means an introduction to the series, but rather a bag of goodies for those who already know the world of the books and are interested in learning some more of what's going on behind the scenes of Rowling's world. There's everything from backstories on characters like Minerva McGonagall and Horace Slughorn, to places like Azkaban, to beings like Peeves, to lists of former Ministers for Mag [...]
