Kritik: HARRY POTTER UND DER GEFANGENE VON ASKABAN (HARRY POTTER #3)

von J.K. Rowling “Aber glaubt mir, dass man Glück und Zuversicht selbst in Zeiten der Dunkelheit zu finden vermag. Man darf bloß nicht vergessen ein Licht leuchten zu lassen.“ Das erste Buch, in dem Voldy sich überhaupt nicht blicken lässt – wen interessierts? GRYFFINDOR GEWINNT ENDLICH DEN QUIDDITCH-CUP! YESSS!

Kritik: HARRY POTTER UND DIE KAMMER DES SCHRECKENS

Das Buch, in dem Rowling (Oh Joanne, hör auf, so schlimme Dinge zu sagen. Ruiniere mir nicht meine Kindheit!) langsam den großen Konflikt ihrer magischen Welt einführt: während es in ‚Stein der Weisen‘ einfach nur kindgerecht „Gut gegen Böse“ war, verrät sie uns hier, was „Du-weißt-schon-wen“ so böse macht. Er ist nicht bloß ein hässlicher, sadistischer Bastard. Nein Freunde, hier geht es außerdem um Rassismus. Voldy und seine sympathischen Gefolgsleute glauben, dass sich der Wert einer Wert einer Person daran bemisst, wer ihre Vorfahren waren.

Review: HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS

The one where Rowling (Oh Joanne, why do you say all these terrible things? Please stop destroying my childhood) slowly introduces the grand reason of conflict in her world: while in Philosopher’s Stone it was just good vs. evil, now we get to know what that evil is, what makes He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named so very dark.

Review: HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE

This is where everything changes: from the last chapters of this volume onwards, Harry Potter gets dark and stops being a series of childrens‘ books. This is the last book where the wizarding world is most of all a place of wonder and fascination and not a world threatened by darkness. And this is the book where Harry himself stops being a child.

Review: HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSPHER’S STONE (ILLUSTRATED EDITION)

I’ll always be thankful for being a 90’s kid, because this made me part of this blessed generation that could grow up with these books. Reading these now as a child of that age must be great, but reading them as a child of that age, Harry’s age, as they were published, was just the best reading experience I’ve ever had and without a doubt will ever have.


Review: JONATHAN STRANGE&MR NORRELL

This is perhaps the most unique fantasy book written in the last fifty years, both intelligent and fascinating. You need a lot of patience for this one – I don’t think I’ve ever needed this much time for a book I really liked, but it’s totally worth it. The writing is superb, the characters are strong and entertaining, and the world-building is in a league of its own.
