Harry Potter and History

Harry Potter and History Read & Download Å 4 Nancy R. Reagin ↠ 4 characters Summary Ó PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Nancy R. Reagin A guide to the history behind the world of Harry Potter just in time for the last Harry Potter movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II Harry Potter lives in a world that is both magical and historical Hogwarts pupils ride an old fashioned steam train to school notes are taken on parchment with uill pens and Muggle legends come to life in the form of werewolves witches and magical spells This book is the first to explore the real histor. I don t have a huge spiel to write about with this book To be honest I didn t read every single page I skimmed through it to parts that I thought sounded interesting to others I love history I really do but sometimes it can drag on a bit Even with this book comparing history to the history that is Harry Potter it sounded like it did go on a bit There were some great parts in it though I loved the comparisons to Voldemort and the Death Eaters being German Natzi s What I liked the most was pulling apart the different spells and their meanings and what languages they actually descend from I knew that a lot of it was latin but learning about the other unknown parts was really interesting I think this book is a real treat an interesting read for a mega history buff but even for a super huge Harry Potter fan like myself I found I couldn t sit and read every single page word for word But from the parts I did read it would be worth it for anyone who loves history and Harry Potter

Harry Potter and History Read & Download Å 4 Nancy R. Reagin ↠ 4 characters Summary Ó PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Nancy R. Reagin World to real life history Gives you the historical backdrop to Harry Potter's world Covers topics ranging from how real British boarding schools compare to Hogwarts to how parchment uills and scrolls used in the wizarding world were made Includes a timeline comparing the history of the wizarding world to Muggle real history Filled with fascinating facts and background Harry Potter and History is an essential companion for every Harry Potter fan. Some of the essays were a stretch in terms of making relevant connections to the HP series and a couple of times the authors seemed tripped up on small HP details At least one of the essays seemed confused on whether we were pretending the HP world was real for this work and comparing magic and muggle history It was overall good fun I enjoy looking at things like history and philosophy through a pop culture lens
