“Quidditch Through the Ages” By Kennilworthy Whisp / J.K. Rowling Review

If you have ever asked yourself where the Golden Snitch came from, how the Bludgers came into existence, or why the Wigtown Wanderers have pictures of meat cleavers on their robes, you need QUIDDITCH THROUGH THE AGES. This invaluable volume is consulted by young Quidditch fans on an almost daily basis.

To be fully honest with you here I think that this book was the weakest book in the written in the Wizarding world yet. But of course it comes from somehow who isn’t a fan of Quidditch. But if you are a fan of Quidditch you will pretty much enjoy it much more than I did. 

This book gives us the history of Quidditch and how it changed throughout the time and how things were added to it. Which really brings much more dept to the Wizarding World. 

Overall this book was a fun, enjoyable and interesting read but still when you compare this book to other books in this series you will notice that this book is the weakest book in this series.

There were a lot of effort put by J.K. Rowling to make this book funny which wasn’t funny because it was way too forced to actually be funny. 

The writing style was okay. You can easily tell that this book was meant for children which is still fine for me.

I Give This Book 3 / 5

“The Comedy of Errors” By William Shakespeare Review

Two sets of twins are separated at birth by a storm at sea: a pair of masters (both named Antipholus) and a pair of servants (both named Dromio). Years later, the Antipholus-and-Dromio pair raised in Syracuse happen to visit Ephesus, where the respective twins reside—providing the basis for ongoing incidents of mistaken identity, within a lively plot of quarrels, arrests, and a grand courtroom denouement.

Another decent play from no other than William Shakespeare. It was one of the best plays by William Shakespeare I’ve read so far but of course I still have to read the more popular plays written by William Shakespeare. 

This play for the most part is enjoyable and well-crafted but still I personally felt like there was something missing here and I just couldn’t quite really get into it the way I wanted. 

This play was really a quick read which really made me like it a little bit more in a way. 

The writing style here was pretty good but it still felt really old and it wasn’t quite retable because it was written so long ago. 

I Give This Play 3 / 5

“Titus Andronicus” By William Shakespeare Review

Subsequent generations have struggled with its bold confrontation of violence but in the 20th and 21st centuries the play has chimed with audiences again, perhaps because of its simultaneously shocking and playful approach to violent revenge and bodily mutilation.

This is another pretty okay play written by no other than William Shakespeare. Even thou I personally am not the biggest fans of plays in general.

The plot here was the same kind of gruesome play by William Shakespeare and you sort of can tell that was written him because we don’t get an happy ending here and the plot in general goes pretty dark. 

Overall the plot in this play is a bloody mess. People who enjoy slasher movies will also enjoy this play because there is a lot happening. 

The writing style here was typical William Shakespeare and you can really feel the old time vibe from reading it which really in my opinion adds to the entire plot.

This play also gave me the biggest Pulp fiction of the 1600s vibe which really enjoyed because I love Quentin Tarantino’s movies. And this sort of Pulp fiction vibe made me gives this play some extra points. 

I Give This Sonnet 3 / 5

“Hamlet” By William Shakespeare Review

The ghost of the King of Denmark tells his son Hamlet to avenge his murder by killing the new king, Hamlet’s uncle. Hamlet feigns madness, contemplates life and death, and seeks revenge. His uncle, fearing for his life, also devises plots to kill Hamlet.

I personally think that this play was okay. I didn’t love it nor did I hate it. Im like in the middle on this one. 

The plot here was very fun and interesting to read but there were some bad moments here and there which were super boring for me personally but for the most part the plot in this play was good.

The theme of this play is madness and revenge which I really loved. And the ghost situation here was also good. 

The writing style here was okay for the most part. Even thou it was classic William Shakespeare writing style in this plot I still think that William Shakespeare could have done a better job on this one. 

The characters here are meh to be honest. And I just didn’t care for them at all. But this play becomes better and better as it goes on because 90% of all characters here die which made me so happy.

I Give Play 3 / 5

“Pericles” By William Shakespeare Review

Prince of Tyre leaves home to escape death only to win a jousting contest and marry a princess. Once he can return home, his family sails with him, but a storm separates them, so Pericles returns alone. Years later, Pericles finds his daughter and reunites with the wife he had thought was dead.

This one was a pretty okay play written by William Shakespeare. This one surprised me in a good way because I didn’t like the majority of plays written by William Shakespeare but this one was pretty good for me.

This play have a huge Charles Dickens Vibe to it which I personally come to enjoy and to be honest I ended giving this play some extra point for the Charles Dickens Vibe which it had.

The plot in this play was pretty good but still it had the generic William Shakespeare plot about love, battle and the huge tragedy at the end which of course is death. But to be honest I didn’t mind in this one because of the way it was presented to us which made the plot a little bit more fun and a little bit more interesting. 

The writing style here was good here. Of course it had the typical William Shakespeare writing with the fun poetic language in it.

I Give Play 3 / 5

“Venus and Adonis” By William Shakespeare Review

It tells the story of Venus, the goddess of Love; of her unrequited love; and of her attempted seduction of Adonis, an extremely handsome young man, who would rather go hunting. The poem is pastoral, and at times erotic, comic and tragic. It contains discourses on the nature of love, and observations of nature.

This was an okay poems / plays written by William Shakespeare. In my opinion it was one of the best plays written by William Shakespeare. But it goes back to the fact that I personally don’t like plays at all. 

The plot here in this play talks is a generic William Shakespeare with love, battle / war, tragedy etc. You know the deal if you read any of William Shakespeare plays before. However the way it was pretend to us made is fun and okay. And it was interesting and enjoyable to read it.

In my opinion this one was too melodramatic for me but it had many good moments. 

The writing style here was very good it really showed me how good of a writer William Shakespeare was and why so many people love his work.

This one is sort of a mix between play and a a collection of various poems. Which makes it a little bit hard to review. 

For me personally it felt like there was something missing but it might be just me not liking plays / poems.

I Give Play 3 / 5

“Tales of Norse Mythology” By Hélène A. Guerber Review

Scandinavians of the Viking Age explored the mysteries of life through their sagas. Folklorist Helene Adeline Guerber brings to life the gods and goddesses, giants and dwarves, and warriors and monsters of these stories in Tales of Norse Mythology. Ranging from the comic to the tragic, these leghends tell of passion, love, friendship, pride, courage, strength, loyalty, and betrayal.

This book have fucked up couple of names when it comes to the norse mythology, I know this since Ive been interested in the norse mythology for years now and I’ve read a lot about it by now. 

You have to know that if you want to get into norse mythology then this book isn’t the choice here. Of course this book has these amazing stories from the norse mythology but this book is very dry and it might make you hate norse mythology before you give it a good shot. 

To be full honest with you this book doesn’t tell us the stories of the norse mythology but rather just reports them to us which really made be so uninterested at times and so bored of this book. 

However this book needs to get points for giving us a good idea about the personality and the look of the major gods and goddesses in the the norse mythology which I really liked.

The writing style here was very okay for the most part but to be fully honest here with you the writing style in this book was a roller coster ride because it had many good moments but it also had many bad moments. 

For the most part this book had a very simplistic overview of the gods which really annoyed me at times. 

I Give This Book 3 / 5 

“The Rape of Lucrece” By William Shakespeare Review

This is a narrative poem focusing on the rape and tragic death of the title character and on the desire for revenge that follows. The work has been subcategorized as a complaint poem, a work in which the main character laments or bemoans his or her unfair fate or injustice.

This play by William Shakespeare surprised me in a good way because I was expecting something which wouldn’t work for me. But this play was actually okay in my opinion.

I personally don’t like plays and I am not a fan of watching nor reading plays but this one was actually fun to read. 

The characters in this play were okay but to be honest I wasn’t the biggest fan of them. There weren’t annoying I just personally didn’t care for them but they were tolerable so I gave this play points for that. 

The plot here was somehow darker than the rest of William Shakespeare’s plays but in a good way. Because in my opinion it suited William Shakespeare much better in a way. This play for the most part is about rape and tragic death which are very sad topics but I really liked.

The narrative is very self-absorbed and melodramatic which annoyed me at times. To be honest this play would have been much better if these two were removed from this play. 

The writing style here was okay. The writing style here was very typical William Shakespeare writing style which I personally never came to appreciate.

“A Lover’s Complaint” By William Shakespeare Review

A lover’s complaint is a compressed poem detailing the predicament of an abandoned female lover who laments her undoing at the hands of an unscrupulous male seducer.

The writing style here was very good and beautiful to be honest. 

This one was short so there isn’t much to say about it.

To poetry here was okay but the plot was worse. Because it was the generic plot of William Shakespeare about love, grief and death was really fast gets depressing if you ask me. 

This poem is fun, enjoyable and interesting to read but still there was something missing in it at least for me.

“The Golden Key” By Jacob Grimm & Wilhelm Grimm Review

A young boy listens to his Great-aunt’s stories about a magical golden key found at the end of a rainbow. One day, he sees an immense rainbow and sets out to find its end in an enchanted forest. As the forest is in Fairyland where everything has an opposite effect, the rainbow only glows brighter when the sun sets.

The original tale is much better but also darker then the version kids see. 

It is different but not that different from what you might remember from first hearing this tale as a kid. 

The plot here are very good but also dark which is the mix which I personally like a lot.

The writing style here was very old and you could feel the vibe of old the Europe which but it also felt like there was something missing.
