The first 30 or so poems capture the breadth of the collection. After that, I kept seeing the same themes and devices over and over.

Two I really like: the balloonman (#4) and the Cambridge ladies (#7).

Nice summary of a strange war. An easy read, although a little too "chatty" in places for my taste.

Alas, like the other Pottermore releases, too short.

An intriguing glimpse into the dusty corners of the Harry Potter universe. I was looking forward most to the chapter on Peeves, but found it disappointingly scarce on detail.

Not a lot of story here, but some intriguing tidbits about the Harry Potter canon.

Groucho Marx
“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.”
Groucho Marx

Philip K. Dick
“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.”
Philip K. Dick, I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon

Arthur C. Clarke
“One of the great tragedies of mankind is that morality has been hijacked by religion. So now people assume that religion and morality have a necessary connection. But the basis of morality is really very simple and doesn't require religion at all.”
Arthur C. Clarke

Carl Sagan
“The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity -- in all this vastness -- there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us. It's been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.”
Carl Sagan

Carl Sagan
“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”
Carl Sagan
