I M In No Way Claiming That m in no way claiming that couldn t possibly enjoy it But that s not what makes Harry Potter successful The Harry Potter series is well thought ut fast paced and gripping Wizard s Hall seems like it was written in a day There s very little character development and the plot reads like it was written by someone who knows that events have to keep happening but doesn t know that I just picked this Thunderbolts: Justice, Like Lightning... one up at the library to reread as I remembered loving it as a kid It was in fact the first novel I ever got a library finen as I lost it under my bed for several monthsA book that tells the story By Pike and Dyke :A Tale of the Rise of the Dutch Republic of a boy wizard succeeding against alldds might sound a bit familiar to you but Wizard s Hall came long before Harry Potter was ever a twinkle in Voldemort s eye Told in charming voice reminiscent Medioevo «superstizioso» of Diana Wynne Jones this uick read is fullf dry humor and is a must for anyone who loves the Harry Potter series wondering why all my reviews are five stars Because I m Death of a Dreamer only reviewing my favorite books not every book I read Consider a novel s presencen my Goodreads bookshelf as a hearty endorsement I can t believe I just said hearty It sounds like a stew less Yes Jane Yolen s 1991 children s fantasy novel Wizard s Hall does indeed feel a bit like JK Rowling s Harry Potter series The Beloved Scoundrel or rather I should instead pointut that Wizard s Hall and the Harry Potter series are somewhat alike in their superficialities in their general set ups but definitely and in my Downcanyon: A Naturalist Explores the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon opinion NOT IN ANY MANNER with enough similarities for Jane Yolen to have any reason whatsoever to even remotely accuse JK Rowlingf actual plagiarism Il Barça of actively having copied large chunksf text from her Wizard s Hall For honestly truly and after now having read both the Harry Potter novels and Wizard s Hall the former are all much in after now having read both the Harry Potter novels and Wizard s Hall the former are all much in and as such also considerably interestingly and engagingly penned than Wizard s Hall which really does for the most part remain rather tediously Italian Phrase Book on the surface so to speak and also has nonef the intricate world and word building as well as very little Lovesong (Green Creek of the humour and delightful irony that JK Rowling makes such ample and entertaining usef in her novels about Harry Potter and his friends with even the main protagonist in Wizard s Hall with even Henry Thornmallow not reading so much like Harry Potter but akin if I actually do want to find a link to Neville Longbottom Therefore The Countess only three and rather unconvincing stars for Wizard s Hall for a decent enough but ultimately still rather unspectacular even mildly disappointing story albeit that I have indeed now lowered my general rating to but two starts because well I do personally feel both than a bit annoyed at and frustrated by Jane Yolen s pedestrian and silly attemptsf trying to accuse JK Rowling Gully Dirt: On Exposing the Klan, Raising a Hog, and Escaping the South of plagiarism and indeed this sure to and for me also does tend to sound like either a casef sour grapes Kelttiläistarinoita or Jane Yolen trying to make publicity for herbviously not as popular Wizard s Hall and which I certainly do find at best rather childish After learning that this book preceded Harry Potter and the Philosopher s Stone and that its author Jane Yolen feels that Rowling stole all f her ideas from Wizard s Hall and is remarkably grumpy about the Harry Potter series even though the story moves along I just don t feel like they re well written and I always tell people that if Ms Rowling would.

To Read Again Because read again because wording was a bit awkward but those were few and far in betweenCharactersI liked the characters Thornmallow most f all He had every reason to give up multiple times in the book but he drove Galileo on like I m sure so manyf us wish we could do sometimes The book is plot heavy than character heavy so the reader Oglinda salvata only gets a tastef the characters Things I LikedThe thing I liked best about Wizard s Hall was how Yolen went about with the you must try theme f the book I find that a lot f Authors And Other Such and Nemico other such creators including artists try to incorporate this into their works and fall very short In the end it s some surprise super power that saves the day not the protagonist actually trying But Thornmallow succeeded because he tried Throughout the entire book he tried and though things didn t always workut he still continued to try I really liked that Things I Didn t LikeDespite its short length Wizard s Hall feels a bit dull I love Thornmallow and the theme Cannella e polvere da sparo of the book but I am eternally grateful Yolen didn t drag the bookutDiversityThere are a lot f female magisters and Thornmallow makes friends with two girls ne f whom Tansy is black That s about it though OverallI d recommend you ignore Yolen s little joke about Harry Potter being copied from Wizard s Hall She even admits that Rowling probably never even read her book and the similarities are just because both books contain common magic tropes Don t come into this book thinking it s any like Harry Potter is than Harry Potter is like The Lord f the Rings Besides that Wizard s Hall is a fun little magic book that is very interesting to boot There s a good theme in it and Thornmallow is a great protagonist Here is a link to my notes Ok this is a children s book but it was my fave book as a little kid Also the first Harry Potter book is a total rip ff f this story so I felt the need to add it An imaginative tale DOGA AST ofn Poems (The I Tatti Renaissance Library) odd school for magic in which the greatest power comes from understandingne s true nature 455 Always really liked this book Certainly children s fiction but the writing is good I Bleach, Volume 05 only wish it were longerr that there were in this series I hope my friends enjoy reading it as much as I did This was a really fun and cute book for kids I enjoy it a lot and know I would have loved it as a kid I do wish that the book was longer and developed I felt like it was just very basic with what was happening and I would ve liked details It s always funny to read books like this and see how similar they are to the premise Gather Together in My Name 1ST Edition of Harry Potter I m sure jk got some inspiration from thisne For category a book with magicI found Wizard s Hall for fifty cents at a book sale and picked it up simply because I was intrigued by the cover I had absolutely no idea what it was about since the back flap came all stickered and unreadable and no expectations for it so I was pleasantly surprised when I pened it Poor Henry It’s not enough that his mother has sent him away from home to learn magic It’s not enough that everyone at his new school calls him Thornmallow because he’s “pr.
