The third of the reviews from “The Tales of Beedle the Bard” is now online at Amazon.com. This installment focuses on “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart,” and you can read (SPOILERS AHOY!) this overview containing much of the plot via this link. Amazon.com has said they will post a review of all the tales from the special handwritten book by J.K. Rowling via the www.amazon.com/beedlebard page, and we will update with more on those remaining when we can. As a reminder, this collection of wizarding fairy tales mentioned in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” was sold at auction to benefit The Children’s Voice charity.

Thanks Magz, Roonwit and all who owled!

while grateful to have a climpse of this wonderfuly awful dark tale. I do wish the writer of the synopsis would take a leaf out of JKs book and not patronize us!

Avatar Image says:

Hmm, can’t they just give us the story instead of analysing the way Jo’s handwriting changes?

Avatar Image says:

J.K is one if not the greatest writer of this century, Her stories will go down in history. Hope a version of Beedle the Bard geats published .

Avatar Image says:

OMG!!! It was SOOOOOO DARK… Who else was reminded of the Pirates of Caribean and the Dead Man’s Chest with the beating heart?

Avatar Image says:

ewwww.

what a story.

Since I will never get my hands on that book, or even lay eyes on it, I am thrilled that the reviewer goes into such detail in describing the look of the writing. We are very lucky to be getting all this information. I am grateful to have been given this opportunity to read a first hand account of the tales. Thank you, thank you Amazon.com.

I want a copy, but can’t afford it. Reading it for myself would be much better than a review…PLEASE JKR, publish one for us readers.

Avatar Image says:

to copy and publish the pages of the book is not allowed ! But “critical analasys” is. (so I have been told) So comments about writing style is possibly the best way to repeat parts of the book without “breaching copyright”. It is wonderful that the buyers (amazon) have been so good as to give a “synopsis” therefore not braking copyright rules but leting us fans have an Insight . Thanks Amazon ! We are all EXTREEMELY FORTUNATE, thanks Amazon ! (those of you who keep grumbling that you havent got what You want, be happy with what you have got !)

I have no doubt in my mind that eventually the entire text of this work will be available for purchase by Merlin Q. Public (or Merlina if you prefer.) My theory (hey – just because book seven is out doesn’t mean we can’t theorize!) is that Amazon.com will work with Jo to work a deal to publish the book with the proceeds going to a combination of her Children’s Voice charities and Amazon’s pro-literacy tour (of which the hand-written book will be a part.) Further, I think it is absurd to think that a unique item like a hand-written manuscript by Jo will ever diminish in value just because people can read the contents in another format.

I can’t speak for anyone else here, but I think I got the most out of this tale of the three so far. In my life, I have gone through some personal trials recently. I called off my wedding because I knew I was marrying the wrong person. This is a good thing in and of itself. It has been about two months now and still I find myself frustrated, disappointed and angry at myself for making such a stupid mistake. Grant it, I am thankful for whoever up above made me realize what I was doing, and brought me out of the Imperius Curse I was under. Still, I am so angry, angry enough to revert back to my past behavior of shutting myself off to love altogether, much like the warlock in “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart” (except no dark magic here :) Jo has made me see how I can’t choose to be that way again. It was through Harry Potter that I realized I was marrying the wrong person, truthfully!

JKR- thank you again. From a 26 year old female (and aspiring writer) in the States- a big thank you!

Avatar Image says:

I don’t think Jo works like that. She never even suggested that the stories would be published, and I hope they aren’t. They just feel so much more magical because we can’t read them properly. It’s like the world of Harry Potter, we can find out all about it, but we can’t actually go there. The same with these fairy tales, we can find out all about them but we can’t actually read them.

Essentially, I agree with CarolynJ :)

ok,. Rabbity Babbity HAS TO BE next, right? I mean, we already know the deathly hallows!

Avatar Image says:

STILL NOT BABBITY RABBITY? saving the best for last, are we? haha. i cannot wait to read about her cackling stump! :D

Avatar Image says:

Wow what an amazing story! I still liked the Fountain of Fair Fortune most, but this really sounds great!

Avatar Image says:

just had a ‘duh’ moment: who ever said there were only five tales from Beedle the Bard? Yes, there are five in the copies handwritten by JKR in the nice journals, and those match the five titles we find in DH. But…why couldnt there be ten, or fifteen? Depends if JKR wants to write them, of course.

Avatar Image says:

Eww… He licked it! XD

Avatar Image says:

That one reminded me quite a bit of Pirates of the Caribbean and the whole Davy Jones-Calypso storyline, but with quite a different ending :P

Avatar Image says:

The new review has been posted – Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump is available on http://www.amazon.com/beedlebard

Avatar Image says:

That is one badass fairy tale haha. Really loved it. :)

Avatar Image says:

SUE SUE, BABBITY RABBITY IS NOW UP, pass on the good news

Avatar Image says:

i <3 dark stuff so that was awesome! but the licking thing gave a disturbing image. 0_0

Avatar Image says:

sorry bout last one. i <3 dark stuff, so that was perfect. but the licking gave a creepy mental pic! LOL 0_0

Avatar Image says:

wow. what a gruesome story. amazing though. @ioli-that is what i first thought of!

Avatar Image says:

Hey, man, thats a really cool tale I loved JKRs simple drawings there, and she actually handwrote it.
