Quidditch Through the Ages: A Harry Potter Hogwarts Library Book Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
"At Queerditch Marsh, however, a game had been created that would one day become the most popular in the wizarding world."
As every fan of the Harry Potter stories knows, the shelves of the Hogwarts Library are home to all sorts of fascinating books. There are three in particular you might have heard mentioned by certain Hogwarts students and that you can add to your listening list too, including Quidditch Through the Ages.
Maybe you dream of catching the elusive Golden Snitch to the sound of deafening cheers all around you, as a certain Harry Potter once did. Or perhaps, like Hermione Granger, your thirst for knowledge is somehow just never quite satisfied. Whether you're a seasoned fan or a complete newcomer to the sport, you'll be in good company when you pick up this particular Hogwarts Library book.
From its origins on Queerditch Marsh in the 11th century to the sophisticated sport played today, discover how "Quidditch unites witches and wizards from all walks of life, bringing us together to share moments of exhilaration, triumph and (for those who support the Chudley Cannons) despair", according to Professor Albus Dumbledore's foreword.
Do you know why refereeing a Quidditch match was once a task for only the bravest witches and wizards, or how to tell a Transylvanian Tackle from a Woollongong Shimmy? In this enlightening and highly popular Hogwarts Library book, Kennilworthy Whisp reveals the daring highs and dangerous lows of the glorious game of Quidditch.
Narrated by Andrew Lincoln, this is the first audiobook edition of Whisp's book ever to be released. Andrew is a People's Choice Awards winner and a BAFTA nominated actor, best known for his role as Rick Grimes in the TV series The Walking Dead. His other film and television credits include Made in Dagenham, Strike Back, and Love Actually.
This audio edition also includes over an hour and a half of bonus content featuring The History of the Quidditch World Cup, narrated by Andrew Lincoln, and commentary on the Quidditch World Cup final, narrated by Annette Badland (as Rita Skeeter) and Imogen Church (as Ginny Potter). This content was written by J.K. Rowling in 2014 and is available to read on wizardingworld.com.
Fans of Quidditch Through the Ages are sure to enjoy the other Hogwarts Library books: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

Not only does 'Quidditch Through The Ages' have every single possibly existing fact about the outrageous game Quidditch (Created through the brilliant mind of Joanne Kathleen Rowling*)but it answers all those questions.

Throughout there are mentions of prominent Teams and Players throughout the world and how it spread throughout. A whole chapter being dedicated to the Quidditch teams of The UK and Ireland.
I love how Rowling does a great job making this world believable that it's actually real. I think all Harry Potter fans should at least read this once.
Anyways, I accepted. It came 2 weeks later the book, not in hardcover as I wanted. It took me 3 hours to read the book and it gave just a brief explanation of where and how quidditch appeared.
I’m a massive potter head and I would say there isn’t much to it, i’ve been collecting harry potter for 3 years and i’ve dedicated a whole room for it. It’s now sitting on a book display on my bookshelf with the rest of my collectibles. But i really did have to go through hell just to get a 150-190 page book that, not going to lie, is pretty boring. It’s just nice to display really.
- Rita Skeeter on Quidditch Through the Ages
I love this super witty and funny companion to the Harry Potter books. It's been created with such love for detail, it's clear to see that Joanne had much fun writing it. Maybe even as much fun as me reading it.
My favourite parts are the history of Quidditch and how it spread to other countries and continents. I especially loved the part about New Zealand.
Now, if you love Harry Potter and haven't yet read this you should reconsider your life choices. Get a move!
