Overview

This is a Harry Potter quiz book like no other. It won't be asking you questions like "what school did Harry Potter go to?" (If you are a Harry Potter fan, then of course you know the answer!) Rather it asks questions which will develop your literary appreciation of the Harry Potter books and your general knowledge of the Harry Potter phenomenon. Some of these questions are easy, quite a few are fiendishly difficult, and several of them really don't have simple answers, but thinking about possible answers is what it is all about. No book achieves anything approaching the success of the Harry Potter series unless it includes something that makes us all think. This Harry Potter Quiz Book aims to draw your attention to some of these big questions. Knowing the name of Harry Potter's school is not likely to change the life of any one of us, but thinking about the moral issues raised in the books might do just that.

    Waste of money!

    My 13 year old daughter used her own money to buy this and was VERY disappointed with this purchase. The questions are mostly about J. K. Rowling's personal life and the making of the movies. This 'book' isn't even worth the $2.99 cost of it. Save your money and skip this one.

    Read description before buying

    I personally enjoyed this book. All of the negative reviews seem to focus on issues that are clearly explained and disclosed in the item description so I have a tough time being sympathetic. If you're looking for shallow trivia questions that can be quickly looked up, skip this one. If you want trivia questions that require an actual understanding of the literature, this is your book.

    Thought-provoking book

    This is an unusual quiz book. It doesn't ask questions like "What color is the Hogwarts Express?" but rather questions about issues J K Rowling raises and language she uses. It is appropriate for an adult or teenage market.

    This getting out of hand

    Guys!!!! Chill out! here. So i see we need to stop the angry comments! I am a kid and i don't post angry commemts about books that were bad to me. Other people might think that the book was bad just because it didn't have Harry Potter questions. That is why it's not liscensed to J.K Rowling. Some author wanted to publish a Harry Potter quiz book but, got bummed out because J.K Rowling wouldn't give him the rights for the name. So he published a book on her so he eouldn't get in trouble for mentioning the name. Simple as that!!!!!!!!
