“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” By Newt Scamander / J.K. Rowling Review

A copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them resides on almost every wizarding household in the country. Now, for a limited period only, Muggles too have the chance to discover where the Quintaped lives, what the Puffskein eats, and why it is best not to leave milk out for a Knarl. Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to improving and saving the lives of children around the world, which means that the dollars and Galleons you exchange for it will do magic beyond the powers of any wizard. If you feel that this is insufficient reason to part with your money, I can only hope most sincerel that passing wizards feel more charitable if they ever see you being attacked by a Manticore.

Yet again another amazing book from the Wizarding World, to be honest here I wanted to read this book ever since I’ve read the entire Harry Potter series.

This book is an awesome bonus book for fans of the Wizarding World because it gives us an amazing insight of all the amazing creatures from the Wizarding World which will make the entire universe bigger and will give you more knowledge about all the animals.

The entire in this book was brilliant but the rest of this book was less fun but it still was amazing. To be fully honest here this book would be much better if we got illustration of every creature which this book talked about rather than just some of the animals which made me a little bit disappointed in this book.

But this book needs to get points for being simple but still very fun and enjoyable no matter if you are an adult, teenager or a child you will still have amazing time reading this book. 

The writing style here was simple but still very good. Of course it wasn’t on the level with the Harry Potter books but the writing style in this book was still amazing. 

This book felt like it was written by no other than Newt Scamander because it felt so personal to the character and we really could feel the love which Newt Scamander had towards all animals. 

Every animal came with descriptions of their good and bad side but also what you should keep in mind when you dealing with each animal.

Reading this book felt like you were in Hogwarts and you were getting a very interesting lesson about each of the animals in the Wizarding World rather than reading a book. 

I Give This Book 4 / 5

“Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” By Robert Louis Stevenson Review

Robert Louis Stevenson’s masterpiece of the duality of good and evil in man’s nature sprang from the darkest recesses of his own unconscious—during a nightmare from which his wife awakened him, alerted by his screams. More than a hundred years later, this tale of the mild-mannered Dr. Jekyll and the drug that unleashes his evil, inner persona—the loathsome, twisted Mr. Hyde—has lost none of its ability to shock. Its realistic police-style narrative chillingly relates Jekyll’s desperation as Hyde gains control of his soul—and gives voice to our own fears of the violence and evil within us. Written before Freud’s naming of the ego and the id, Stevenson’s enduring classic demonstrates a remarkable understanding of the personality’s inner conflicts—and remains the irresistibly terrifying stuff of our worst nightmares.

I was very impressed by this book. Because I’ve expected to not like it like most classics but in fact this book is one of the best classic books I’ve read so far.

The plot in this book is a horror book but much rather a thriller / mystery book. Of course there are some murders in this book. But most of the book is about finding the mystery of Mr. Hyde and who he is. The plot itself pretty much reminds me of old timey schizophrenia, but it was super fun to read this book and see what will happen next. 

The characters here are good. Of course there are some characters who I didn’t like but the main character Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde very truly amazing and I loved them which I gave this book some extra points for.

There isn’t so much action here but there is a lot of wondering and mystery which I personally enjoy when it happens. 

The action taken place in old London, which is an amazing setting for any thriller or horror book or movie in my opinion.

The beginning of this books is a police investigation which it intrigued me personally and it really was an amazing start to this book in my personally opinion.

Dr. Jekyll is the good one here and Mr. Hyde is the evil one. And it pretty much shows the good versus the evil. 

The writing style here was amazing, it felt like going back in time and watching this all happen rather reading this book.

The end in this book is just as amazing as the beginning in my opinion. Because the ending includes psychological and philosophical apotheosis with Doctor Jekyll’s journal which explains how it all happened and how doctor Jekyll went to being mr. Hyde.

“Madly, Deeply: The Diaries of Alan Rickman” By Alan Rickman Review

From his breakout role in Die Hard to his outstanding, multifaceted performances in the Harry Potter films, Galaxy Quest, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and more, Alan Rickman cemented his legacy as a world-class actor. His air of dignity, his sonorous voice, and the knowing wit he brought to each role continue to captivate audiences today. But Rickman’s ability to breathe life into projects wasn’t confined to just his performances. As you’ll find, Rickman’s diaries detail the extraordinary and the ordinary, flitting between worldly and witty and gossipy, while remaining utterly candid throughout. He takes us inside his home, on trips with friends across the globe, and on the sets of films and plays ranging from Sense and Sensibility, to Noël Coward’s Private Lives, to the final film he directed, A Little Chaos.

This book took me awhile to finish but I finally finished it.

I enjoyed this book a lot but at the same time I feel like this book shouldn’t have been published. Because this book is of all the diaries Alan Rickman had throughout the years. All his thoughts and choppy notes were for himself and he makes some few brutal comments about things and some actors.

Reading this book felt like taking a look at Alan Rickman’s mind throughout the years and during his cancer battle and years. 

It was amazing to learn what he truly thought about some of his acting projects as Harry Potter movies and Die Hard. 

This book and the diaries in this book gives us an amazing look into a very talented mind and his opinions.

Overall this book was super interesting and enjoyable.

“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

“Henry Vi Part III” By William Shakespeare Review

The third part of this play is the same as the first one and the second one, it is just as bad as the 2 previous once.

This one feels like an unfinished play which really annoyed me a lot because it really killed the entire play for me.

This play has the same problem as the first one which is that if you don’t know anything about British royal family back in the day then you we struggle throughout this entire play and it is be torture. 

There are many good characters but they really didn’t made me like them or made me care for them. I appreciate very character in this play but to be fully honest here I didn’t care for me at all.

The writing style was pretty good, I’m still pretty fresh to William Shakespeare so I can’t compare it to some of his other works but it was good enough I assume. 

For me personally it was pretty boring and it was too many of names to follow and it makes even harder that I’m not familiar with the British royal family from hundreds of years ago. 

I Give This Play 1 / 5

“Cymbeline” By William Shakespeare Review

King Cymbeline rules over Britain under the protection of Rome. His kingdom must pay tribute. Cymbeline learns that his only daughter, Innogen, has secretly married his ward, Posthumus Leonatus, a man of low birth. Furious with the couple’s disobedience, Cymbeline decides to banish Posthumus from Britain.

The writing style here was typical William Shakespeare writing with the fun poetic language in it. Which to be honest must have been the best part about this play. Which really doesn’t do much for me personally because for me it is overused by William Shakespeare. 

To be honest here the plot of this play is pretty generic William Shakespeare plot about love, battle and the huge tragedy at the end which of course is death.

The plot is almost the same as King Lear. It talks about the same things but this one is a little bit worse than King Lear was. 

For me personally this play felt like an echo of some of his better works which really failed to accomplish what his better works had accomplish. 

All of the characters in this play are pretty much the same person dressed as different people. All of the characters in this play are super annoying and boring which really made it impossible for me to like it.

I Give Play 1 / 5

“The Winter’s Tale” By William Shakespeare Review

The jealous King Leontes falsely accuse his wife Hermione of infidelity with his best friend, and she dies. Leontes exiles his newborn daughter Perdita, who is raised by shepherds for sixteen years and falls in love with the son of Leontes’ friend.

The plot in this play is pretty generic William Shakespeare plot about love, battle and the huge tragedy at the end which of course is death. This play has the same problem as the majority of the plays written by William Shakespeare which is that it is poorly presented to us. Which really sucks because it could really be very good.

The plot was so poorly done here that I ended up DNF-ing this play after reading something around 30% of it. The plot pretty much was very boring and uninteresting.

The writing style here was typical William Shakespeare writing with the fun poetic language in it. Which to be honest must have been the best part about this play.

The characters here were very uninteresting and boring but also at the same time very annoying. Most of the characters here felt like the same person dressed as different people. Which really made me hate this play even more because it was very confusing keeping track of who was who in this play.

“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

“King Richard The Third” By William Shakespeare Review

Jealous and crippled, Richard of Gloucester wants to be King of England and uses manipulation and deceit to achieve his goal. He murders his brothers, nephews, and any opposition to become King Richard III. In the end, Henry of Richmond raises an army, kills Richard in battle, and becomes King Henry VII.

Yet again another play which didn’t work for me but to be honest I am not the biggest fan of plays in general so it might be me and not this play.

For the most part this play was so boring and really I just couldn’t keep up with the characters of who was who because they just kept bleeding with each for me. 

This play has the William Shakespeare’s wit and sarcasm but still I just couldn’t force myself to like this play. 

The writing style here was pretty okay for the most part but I know that William Shakespeare was capable of much better work than what he did on this one.

Both the plot and all the characters in this play are very erratic and disappointing for me personally.

I Give This Sonnet 2 / 5
