The Knight Bus In Half Blood Prince the Knight bus took Harry, Hermione and Ron back to Hogwarts after Christmas So possible to get the Knight Bus even if not stranded A Levels Although the Public schools may sit the International Baccalaureate, most 6th form students sit A levels instead.
However overall this was an interesting book and a good read for the Harry Potter Fan.
Well, I know for a fact i m not an idiot, but I think the author is The author has a lot of facts wrong And it really turned me off I finished the book, but it was not an enjoyable read, it was painful.
Honestly I read this before I read Harry Potter I know, I know, I was really late to the Harry Potter world It was very helpful in order to talk to my HP friends and not sound like a complete Muggle Of course I eventually read all the books and was hooked, thank you This reference guide was still very helpful when I hit something in the book I didn t understand Let s be honest, all those potion names and spell names can be a bit to remember your first time reading.
Didn t quite like this book, not complete very little mention of book 7 except for the horcruxes hallows Missed out some stuff from the earlier books too, a disappointment But as a Harry Potter fan, I couldn t miss out on any Potter related books, official or not.
Already being a HUGE potter fan when I read this, I knew most of what was in it.
This book of facts is only of any use to you if you re not a Potterhead to begin with If you re already part of the cult fandom, you ll soon see all the mistakes and errors and feel cheated Like I did.
I thought it had alot of information, but it seemed very boring I did not expect to be intrigued, but it would have been nice if it said than the roots of the words I was expecting mentionings of Harry, but that was fine I would not read this again SO BORING
