J.K. Rowling did a very good job of making this book read like an actual history book. Unfortunately, because of this, it is a bit dry at times. It's an interesting book, but it can be a little dull. Each chapter is pretty short though and the book moves quickly.
I really like the whole backstory of this being a library book. It added an extra dimension to it, similar to how Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them allows a glimpse into the minds of Harry and his friends with all their commentary.
Overall a cool book filled with lots of information from the origin of flying broomsticks and other broom games to various Quidditch teams and the evolution of the racing broom.

This book is absolutely beautiful. I have read the original book a handful of times and loved it. I did not think that I could possibly love it more. But then the illustrated edition came out and it is spectacular. The same amazing story that captured my imagination as a kid, now with gorgeous full-color pictures. Amazing. Absolutely amazing.
Last year, I read the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Of course I loved it. This has the same spellbinding, high-quality artwork as the first. I really like how the pictures stay true to the words written in the story and do not rely on the movie versions.
Awesome book. I can't wait to buy the third one.
