5th sentence, 74th page: Quidditch was well established in Ireland by the fourteenth century, as proved by Zacharias Mumps’s account of a match in 1385: ‘A team of Warlocks from Cork flew over for a game in Lancashire and did offend the locals by beating their heroes soundly.
If you have ever asked yourself where the Golden Snitch came from, how the Bludgers came into existence or why the Wigtown Wanderers have pictures of meat cleavers on their robes, you need Quidditch Through the Ages. This invaluable volume is consulted by young Quidditch fans on an almost daily basis.
This was my least favourite book in the Hogwarts Library series. I just found it a little dry to read. Although, I feel that way with a lot of history books, so that’s probably why. Sport doesn’t fascinate me, and neither does the way it evolved in the world.
Having said that, I thought that it was really well written. It actually reminded me of the PE textbook that I had to read in my first two years of high school. And the attention to detail that J.K. Rowling has in all of her books added another layer of reality to the world.
