Inhaltsangabe

The history of magic is as long as time and as wide as the world. In every culture, in every age, in every place and, probably, in every heart, there is magic.

Harry Potter: A History of Magic reveals some of the hidden stories behind real-world magic and explores some of J.K. Rowling's magical inventions alongside their folkloric, cultural and historical forebears.

Narrator Natalie Dormer and a host of experts will take you on an audio journey like no other; from ancient China, to a 14th-century apothecary's shop, on to the Salem witch trials and beyond. They delve into a rich body of writings about magic and explore intriguing artefacts to bring to life deep-rooted ideas of mysticism from around the world.

Along the way, you can listen for handy tips on how to capture a basilisk, make yourself invisible or create your very own philosopher's stone. You'll hear about the dozens of drafts and drawings that went into J.K. Rowling's writing process and enjoy exclusive interviews with Jim Dale, Stephen Fry and illustrator Jim Kay, who all share their experiences of working on these incredible stories.

The extraordinary and thought-provoking tales in this audiobook are perfect for anyone who wants to know a little more about magic and the wizarding world.

In this audio documentary, Natalie Dormer takes you on a spellbinding exploration of the real-world history that influenced J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter stories. While not written by J.K. Rowling herself, nor taught by the slumbering Professor Binns, the documentary is inspired by the exhibition held at the British Library in 2017, which came to the New-York Historical Society in 2018. This audiobook is packed full of exclusive interviews, folkloric facts, and musings on intriguing artifacts and mysticism from around the world.

Sehr schönes Hörbuch - nicht ganz perfekt

Das Hörbuch ist sehr schön gemacht. Auf jeden Fall etwas, das man immer wieder anhören kann und möchte.
Nur eine Sache habe ich zu bemängeln: Die Lautstärke der Sprecher (in den "Interviewteilen") ist oft sehr unterschiedlich, sodass man während des Hörens immer wieder lauter/leiser stellen muss.

Magical!

The story, or rather history is fascinating! So many things we didn't know about magic are explained here. The magical world we were introduced to by JK Rowling is as wondrous as it has been since we first read of Harry Potter, the boy who lived. This is a truly magical experience!
I also really enjoyed the performance! Not only is Natalie Dormer a great narrator, but all the interviews with actors, artists and museum curators (and more) are highly interesting and done in such a nice way!

If I could give this audio book more than 5 stars, I would!
