#5 - Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets by J.K Rowling and Jim Kay
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: The Illustrated Edition - J.K. Rowling,Jim Kay

I don't kow how many times I've read Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets, I can't keep track. But I know it's my second time reading this edition in anticipation of the 3rd one that I got for Christmas. I'll read it next month and I can't wait, it's so beautiful.

 

As always, it was Harry Potter so I totally enjoyed it.

#79 - Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling (Slytherin Edition)
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Slytherin Edition - J.K. Rowling

No need to write another review about this book, I have read it a million times (Goodreads says 4, but it is way more than that). I just wanted to mention this edition because it is a cool one. Well, if you love collecting books (and I guess many of you here do) it's great, other than that, there are not a lot of bonus contents (still, you get some cool stuff about your favourite house!).

  

This is the Slytherin edition and at the beginning, you get different stuff about this house. Like the characteristics, the ghost etc. There is also a list of important wizards and witches of this particular house. Plus, it is extremely pleasing to the eye.

I would like to have all the house editions because I really enjoy collecting Harry Potter books, but of course, I got the Slytherin one first.

  

I definitely recommend this edition, it would also make a great present (I’m actually giving one myself this year, but I won’t tell to whom just in case that person is reading. I don’t think so but you never know)

It's always amazing to re-read a Harry Potter book. I have so many feeling every single time and I never get bored!

The illustrations are stunning and really add something to the story in my opinion. This one was creepy though, with all the spiders...

Pripovesti barda Bidla
The Tales of Beedle the Bard - J.K. Rowling

(s komentarima profesora Albusa Dambldora)

 

 

Čak i ako vas ne zanimaju Bidlove priče za decu, podstaknuti knjigom Rite Skiter pokušaćete da preko komentara odgonetnete Dambldora. Uspećete, onoliko koliko je to s ličnošću poput njegove moguće.

 

Zbirka sadrži pet čarobnjačkih bajki:

1. Čarobnjak i skakućući lonac

2. Vrelo velike sreće

3. Veščevo kosmato srce

4. Baka-zekonja i njen Cerekajući panj

5. Priča o tri brata

 

Dambldorovi komentari pomažu da se razotkrije drevno (i naivno) čarobnjačko poimanje viših nivoa magije, poput tajne dugovečnosti, čovekoljublja ili menjanja oblika. Međutim, u tumačenje bajki svaki čitalac unosi deo svog iskustva, pa tako ja komentar na priču Čarobnjak i skakućući  lonac imam da dopunim teorijom o magiji pohranjenoj u samom loncu, koji svoju "normaloljubačku" prirodu nameće vlasnicima.

 

Vrelo velike sreće ću čitati svojoj deci. Neće im proći lakunoć bez nje, dok je ne shvate.

 

Veščevo kosmato srce jeste sirova (i možda tačnija) verzija "Lepotice i zveri", s najsnažnijom poukom od svih, sadržanom u Prvom zakonu magije: 

Ne petljajte se s najdubljim materijama - izvorom života, suštinom bića - ukoliko niste spremni na najekstremnije i najopasnije posledice.

 

Priča o tri brata obrađena je u romanu "Hari Poter i relikvije smrti", a Dambldorov komentar iz ove zbirke kao novinu donosi jednu od njegovih karakterističnih misli:

Ljudi imaju dar da izaberu tačno one stvari koje su najgore po njih.

Znamo da je Dambldor izabrao Kamen, prezreo Smrtoštap, a Ogrtač prosledio nasledniku trećeg brata, izborivši se na taj način s oličenjem zla svog doba. Da li ovaj komentar znači da se opšte i lično dobro uvek potiru?

 

 

Uz čitanje slušati: Harry Potter OST, nararvno.
