Om författaren

J. K. (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling was born in Gloucestershire, U. K. on July 31, 1965. She also writes fiction novels under the name of Robert Galbraith. Rowling attended Tutshill Primary and then went on to Wyedean Comprehensive where she was made Head Girl in her final year. She received a degree visa mer in French from Exeter University. She later took some teaching classes at Moray House Teacher Training College and a teacher-training course in Manchester, England. This extensive education created a perfect foundation to spark the Harry Potter series that Rowling is renowned for. After college, Rowling moved to London to work for Amnesty International, where she researched human rights abuses in Francophone Africa, and worked as a bilingual secretary. In 1992, Rowling quit office work to move to Portugal and teach English as a Second Language. There she met and married her husband, a Portuguese TV journalist. But the marriage dissolved soon after the birth of their daughter. It was after her stint teaching in Portugal that Rowling began to write the premise for Harry Potter. She returned to Britain and settled in Edinburgh to be near her sister, and attempted to at least finish her book, before looking for another teaching job. Rowling was working as a French teacher when her book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published in June of 1997 and was an overnight sensation. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone won the British Book Awards Children's Book of the Year, was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Award, and received a Commended citation in the Carnegie Medal awards. She also received 8,000 pounds from the Scottish Arts Council, which contributed to the finishing touches on The Chamber of Secrets. Rowling continued on to win the Smarties Book Prize three years in a row, the only author ever to do so. At the Bologna Book Fair, Arthur Levine from Scholastic Books, bought the American rights to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone for the unprecedented amount of $105,000.00. The book was retitled Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for it's American release, and proceeded to top the Best Seller's lists for children's and adult books. The American edition won Best of the Year in the School Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, Parenting Magazine and the Cooperative Children's Book Center. It was also noted as an ALA Notable Children's Book as well as Number One on the Top Ten of ALA's Best Books for Young Adults. The Harry Potter Series consists of seven books, one for each year of the main character's attendance at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. All of the books in the series have been made into successful movies. She is number 1 on the Hollywood Reporter's '25 Most Powerful Authors' 2016 list. She has also written Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. She won the 2016 PEN/Allen Foundation Literary Service Award. In 2016 she, along with Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, published the script of the play Harry Potter and the cursed child. It became an instant bestseller. Rowling's first novel for an adult audience,The Casual Vacancy, was published by Little Brown in September 2012. She made The New York Times Best Seller List with her title Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination. She published two bestselling fiction novels under the name of Robert Galbraith: The Cuckoo's Calling and The Silkworm. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Recensioner

När J.K. Rowling för över tio år sedan släppte sista boken om Harry Potter hade hon också skrivit ihop den sagobok som nämns i serien: till en början fanns den endast i sju handskrivna exemplar, varav ett såldes på aktion till ett pris av ungefär 20 miljoner kr, men ett år senare släpptes The tales of Beedle the bard till allmänheten, som fortfarande hungrade efter allt som hade med Harry Potter att göra.

Så mycket är det nu inte: hundra sidor, inte speciellt tätt satta, med några inlagda bilder. Det är fem sagor totalt, var och en på dryga dussinet sidor, resten tas upp av Dumbledores kommentarer. Sagornas moral är ungefär den man kan hitta även i vanliga folksagor: var snäll och ha ett rakt förnuft så kommer det gå dig väl, tro inte att diverse magiska trix kan göra mer än att ge dig en chans, försök inte lura Döden (här är han definitivt inte någon kattälskare som talar i versaler och försöker ge sina kunder en så lätt passage som möjligt).

Det är inte många överraskningar, egentligen. Eftersom det är sagor så är magin inte riktigt som man vant sig från Harrys lektioner. De små sidohistorier som kommer via Dumbledores kommentarer är trevliga, liksom hans utläggning om dödsrelikerna, men kommer inte förändra eller fördjupa förståelsen av huvudserien. Lägg för all del en timme eller två på läsning, och köp för all del boken och stöd den välgörenhet till förmån för barn på barnhem som får del av vinsten, men sätt inte förväntan för högt.
