It was released on 6 September 2016 in several languages at the same time.[6]

Content[edit]

In this guide, the readers find information about Minerva McGonagall, Remus Lupin, Sybill Trelawney and Silvanus Kettleburn.[7][8]

Reception[edit]

Kate Samuelson of Time.com expressed that the book contained a lot of surprising and intricate details about the characters as well as insight into the history of the wizarding world and interesting revelations of Rowling’s writing regrets.[7] Some fans reacted negatively to the fact that most of the books content had already been available for free online at Pottermore.[9][10][11][12]
