Will “Career of Evil” Parallel “Prisoner of Azkaban” Format? The Hogwarts Professor Says YES!
MuggleNet Academia co-host and Professor of Hogwarts John Granger has made bold predictions in the past when it came to the Harry Potter series. His five keys to Unlocking Harry Potter (Zossima 2007) and The Hidden Key to Harry Potter (Zossima 2002) both share insightful predictions during the production of the Potter series defining the artistry and meaning of the Hogwarts saga with surprising accuracy.
John has now taken his analysis to the Cormoran Strike mystery series by Robert Galbraith (a.k.a. J.K. Rowling) and predicts that the Cormoran Strike series will parallel the Harry Potter series’s third book’s plot points by stating in his recent article on the Hogwarts Professor website,
The mystery figure is an echo of Sirius Black in Prisoner of Azkaban, and we should expect, as was the case of Harry’s third year adventures, a good deal of narrative release, back-story hinted at in the first two books that will be the substance of the drama in the next four mysteries. Which is to say, more on Rokeby, Lida Strike, Cormoran’s [a]rmy career and the accident that cost him a leg, and hurrah, why Robin left [u]niversity and is beholden to her tosser of a fiancee [sic].
Furthermore, the Hogwarts Professor displays the parallels of The Silkworm and The Cuckoo’s Calling to the Hogwarts saga in great detail. However, BEWARE… do NOT read these if you have not read the Cormoran Strike series since there are SPOILERS in the text.
Bottom line, the third book in the Cormoran Strike series, Career of Evil, will bring about a new level of enthusiasm and fandom excitement similar to that of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Will you be jumping on the fandom express with this brilliant mystery series by J.K. Rowling’s alter ego?
