J K Rowling The Wizard Behind Harry PotterOtter series 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 responsibilities the JK Rowling story is a wonderful chance for adults and children to enjoy a heartwarming magical storytogether Inside are t 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 plagiarism?With 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 stopped at Knight’s Cross station in London” Knight’s Cross station does not exist King’s Cross station however does On page 74 o MrShapiro claims that “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was completed early in 1994” Actually the manuscript wasn’t completed until 1995 o MrShapiro also writes that JK received a grant in 1994 after which she started teaching at the Moray House Training College However JK started teaching at Moray House in 1995 and did not receive the grant until 1997 On page 96 o Mr Shapiro stated that the fourth book's title was Harry Potter and the Doomspell Tournament Any one else familiar with that one?
