I pride myself as being a great fan of Harry Potter. I have read the first book 16 times and the rest countless more times. I know nearly everything there is to know about the Potter universe and have memorised great chunks of the text.
So I, like many others, was very sad when the last film came out, as it marked the end of the time when I would always be looking forward to the release of the next book or film.
However I soon heard tell about a brand new, interactive Potter website which would be coming online at the end of the year. Its name, Pottermore!
And so I waited for this new site that would be coming open soon. And waited. And waited.
6 months later than promised. I was allowed in.
Although annoyed about having to wait so long for them to fix a couple of server problems, I cannot deny that the chance to explore Pottermore was exciting. You emerge into a bright purple ‘Gateway’ filled with mysterious swirls and graphics which had obviously not come cheap.
As you explore the world of Pottermore you can see all parts of the story that you never see in the films and to an extent, the books either. Scattered along the way are objects, books and even specially written content by JK Rowling.
You also get a chance to be sorted into one of the houses yourself. GO GRYFFINDOR!
Trust me. Pottermore is amazing. Try it out.
And while you’re there, you can add me ^^^^^^.
