All The Young Dudes

Honestly, I’m not sure where to start with this book.

I guess, I want to start off by saying that this book is fanfiction—it is a fan’s telling of the Marauders’ time in Hogwarts and beyond, based off of the characters by JK Rowling. But, it didn’t feel like a fanfiction. It felt like you were truly in the world of Harry Potter, like the characters and the events were real.

The writing of this book was so well-crafted and natural. The characters were all so three-dimensional—it was like they were real people. They were so easy to relate to, despite being magical. It was so easy to find parts of myself in all of them, which is a telling sign of an amazing book.

This book made me cry. A lot. A lot more than any other book I’ve read. When I finished, it felt like I had gotten so attached to the characters I’d forgotten they were fiction. The world that was built inside those digital pages was just so real to me, it was like I genuinely lost people I cared about. That sounds cheesy, I know.

It’s easy to get attached to this book. It’s 188 chapters, and none of them are short. They’re long and full of detail and each one sucks you in farther than the last. It feels like you’re not even reading a book, but rather, being sucked into a world full of magic and werewolves and danger and love. It is truly an adventure.

Of course, you’d probably have to be a Harry Potter fan to read this book. You could honestly read it without having read or watched Harry Potter, but I’m not sure it would have the same emotional connection. But, if you love Harry Potter, I highly recommend this book. Even if you’re not normally a big reader. This book is worth it.
