I said it best when I rated this book for Amazon:
I see now why I found this book at a thrift store. Utter crap. The author summarizes the books but even that is poorly written. My daughter and I are intense fans of this series having read the books and seen the movies multiple times and I can tell you there were so many mistakes in this book. Things like when the author describes that the students in the wizarding world wear typical teen attire (jeans, tshirts and tennis shoes) under their robes....no they don't. They wear a school uniform. Then the author tried to compare each character to corresponding characters/Gods from mythology. She says that Hagrid can be compared to Poseidon for his command of water. WHAT IS SHE TALKING ABOUT?? Hagrid didn't have a command of water. Many of the assumptions in this book are downright wrong. If you have it and you have a fireplace, toss it in the fire to warm your toes while you read the real thing.
