    For text and analysis, I would give it just one star. However, I found the timeline and the glossary very helpful, which bumped it up to an overall two stars. Those two pieces would be very helpful to a fast reader that wanted a refresher on some details. However, I have to believe there are better HP companions. Very glad I borrowed it from the library instead of buying it.

    Meh. Nothing special. There's a brief biography on JKR (all information you can easily find on Wikipedia), some literary analysis that reads like a high schooler's obvious thoughts, and an encyclopedia-type section that is dwarfed by the likes of the HP Lexicon.

    I do book reviews for ARBA, so I sometimes have the "opportunity" to read books I normally wouldn't. This happened to be pretty good.
