Yesterday when I was leaving the library with my son the youth room to be exact I saw this book on display and immediately picked it up I am a big HP fan and I love Jo Rowling so I was excited to read it The book is not by her though it's by a guy named Marc Shapiro and I really don't think he had any right to write this book Most of his sources were big magazines or newspaper articles with interviews with Jo in thembut he never talkedinterviewed her himself What got me the most angry in just the first 20 pages1 He continued to refer to Harry Potter as being a 13 year old boy wizard who receives a letter to go to Hogwarts UM NO Harry was 10 when the book first starts and he celebrates his 11th birthday in a beat down old shack and in the early morning of his 11th birthday Hagrid breaks into the shack and gives Harry his letter He is not 13 until the third book Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban You get your letter to Hogwarts when you are 11 NOT 13 2 They referred to CHO CHANG as Cho Chan I don't know if it was just a typo but considering this guys lack of correct information throughout the book I'm pretty sure he just had the name wrong Did he even read the books I have to ask myself 3 He keeps referring to her as Joanne Kathleen Rowling as if Kathleen is really a part of her namemiddle name It is not She does not HAVE a middle name Before the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone or Philosophers Stone which was the original name they told Jo that because she was a woman she probably wouldn't appeal to young boy readers so they wanted to give her a different name that was neutral JK Rowling sounded neutral The K for Kathleen came from a family member Jo decided to take it and put it in her name for the books it is not her real middle name and in the book the author kept referring to her as Joanne Kathleen Rowling and it was frustratingAfter I noticed those three mistakes I almost put the book down But I then decided to lightly pencil in all of the correct info Overall the book wasn't horrid I loved reading about Jo's home life and all the struggles and good times she went through It's fun to see that side of your favorite author but then again I don't know much of that information was false I have only gone into deeply reading the Harry Potter books but not too much material on Jo So I am unable to catch some wrong info about her That part does bug me a bit wondering how much of the book was rubbish and how much was true in terms of Jo's life and struggles I did see a lifetime made movie about her called Behind the Magic the JK Rowling story Think that was the name So other than a few things that really frustrated me it was an okay read I think they should have waited until all the HP books were out before writing this They only outlined the first book and briefly mentioned titles up until the 5th book They didn't mention anything about her knowing the ending of the story before she finished writing the first that bummed me out but I suppose for what it was a biography in the children's section of the library it wasn't horrendous It just didn't have all the correct factsA few other little indiscrepancies I noticed in the book Jo's parents are described as very supportive in some parts but in others they seem to be the parents who say Oh that's nice but where is the pension in that so there wasn't much of an accurate read on her parents Also there was a mention that she knewdidn't plan to make money off of the book but then later she mentioned she just wanted to make enough to support her writing Well it's one or the other I can't tell if these are just things Jo has said that seem to cross one another or just the way the author isbut either way it bugged me Lastly in the beginning of the book it is said that she has a dreamy childhood who easily made friends and had fun being a tomboy and enjoyed sharing her stories but later on an interview was uoted where she said she would never do childhood over because it was horrible HUH Maybe her teen years before she blossomed and she just felt awkward I could understand that But that's not her 'childhood' so yea That is my review of this book Wish I could have given it 25 stars 3 seems too high but 2 seems too low I did enjoy chunks of the book just not the wrong or misleading info

S will get to see their favorite author as they never have before From a child with a wonderful imagination who didn't uite fit in to a single mother with almost overwhelming K Rowling The ePUB #9734 responsibilities the JK Rowling story is a wonderful chance for adults K Rowling The Wizard Behind ePUB #10003 and children to enjoy a heartwarming magical storytogether In. This book has conjuring in it than all of JK Rowling's seven Harry Potter novels put together One has to uestion the credibility of an author and the publishing house that would publish a book chock full of inaccuracies I got so tired of listing everything that was wrong with this book because A there was so much of it and B it was hindering my reading because I constantly had to stop and make a note for my review The only good part of this book was the last Chapter where the author states that Rowling said in order to write a book one has to actually sit down and write it and write what you know; unfortunately as great as an advice that is it's nothing that any other author hasn't said before and an advice that Marc Shapiro should have also taken How can you take anything he wrote about Rowling seriously when he didn't even get her birth year right It's a shame this was passed off as a legitimate novel I mean seriously the guy is making money off of this You should be ashamed of yourself for ripping people off because it's like a high school book report than a real novel whose information seemed to have been copied and pasted from the internet which Mr Shapiro basically admitted in the preface of the book; but another disturbing part of this book is that the author also conveniently failed to cite which information came from what source Isn't that called plagiarismWith so many glaring mistakes one has to wonder whether Mr Shapiro has actually ever read a single Harry Potter book andor call to uestion his ability to research a subject any subject Here's the list of mistakes I found and I'm just your every day Harry Potter fan On page xii o MrShapiro states “learning the fine arts of charms spells and magic alongside good friends Ron and Hermione at the feet of Professor Dumbledore”; when in fact by the time Harry Ron and Hermione attend Hogwarts Professor Dumbledore was already the headmaster of the school In “Chamber of Secrets” Tom Riddle’s diary shows that Professor Dumbledore taught “Transfiguration” when Tom was still attending Hogwarts which was than forty years prior the trio attending the school Although I suppose one can argue that Professor Dumbledore “taught” Harry Ron and Hermione valuable life lessons Ok I’ll give Mr Shapiro that one On page 5 o MrShapiro mentions that “the portraits of long dead ancestors who come alive at night to primp and curl their hair” During the Edinburgh Book Festival on August 15 2004 Rowling explained that the portraits were enchanted imprints left behind by the subject of the portrait and are only capable of very limited interaction Mostly they would repeat catchphrases they were known to have said when they were alive So in essence once a spell was cast on the portraits they become animated from that point on and could interact with the living all the time not just at night o MrShapiro mistakenly states “the moment when Harry discovers Cho Chan on the uidditch field” Cho’s last name is “Chang” with a “g” not “Chan” like the martial arts actor Jackie or the fictional Chinese American detective Charlie Maybe that was a typo but judging from the kerning I would venture to say this was a serious oversight of facts by the writer and who ever proofread this book On page 7 o Perhaps the most erroneous statement MrShapiro makes in this book was that “In the world of Harry Potter owls run banks” WRONG “Owl Post” it’s even the title of the first chapter in “Prisoner of Azkaban” for goodness sake Owls deliver the post goblins runs the banks Ok this one can’t be attributed to being a typo but the person charged with the task of checking out the facts for this book seriously needs to think about a career change o MrShapiro also states “But finally it is Harry Potter a skinny thirteen year old with glasses green eyes and a head of unruly black hair who is the heart of JK Rowling’s adventures” Thirteen Sure by the third book But if you want to get technical about it in the Sorcerer’s Stone the first time we meet Harry he was only a year old By the time we are introduced to a spectacled Harry Potter “nearly ten years has passed” according to the opening sentence in chapter two that would make the glasses wearing Harry Potter eleven years old On page 17 o MrShapiro states “Rowling’s parents met on a train in 1963” Her parents met in 1964 o MrShapiro wrote “Ann worked as a lab technician” JK’s mother’s name is misspelled It’s Anne with an “e” and not Ann On page 19 o The author lists JK Rowling’s birth date as “July 31 1966”; when in fact her birth year was 1965 On page 22 o MrShapiro refers to JK sister as “Di” all throughout the book The younger sister’s name is “Dianne” Close but still On page 29 o MrShapiro wrote on page 17 that JK’s father was a manager of an aircraft factory but then states on page 29 that “Peter moved up in his job as a mechanic for an automobile factory” But according to the September 2012 issue of The New Yorker Mr Rowling was a Rolls Royce aircraft engineer I’m pretty sure “mechanic” ≠ “engineer” On page 35 o MrShapiro states that “Joanne successfully graduated from Tutshill Primary” JK attended St Michael's Primary School On page 49 o MrShapiro incorrectly wrote “the train
