Okay, Hand aufs Herz, ich hab nie den Trubel um Quidditch verstanden, deswegen war ich mir nicht ganz sicher ob ein Buch in dem es ausschließlich um das Spiel geht, wirklich eine gute Idee ist. Aber es ist ein kurzes Buch und es gehört einfach irgendwie dazu, also hab ich es heute in Angriff genomme...
I mean, it's a history book. She does a decent job of capturing the drier tendencies of such a thing, despite it being about a magical (and of course non existent) sport.Re-read Aug 30, 2016
