Since I don't think I will be able to write a decent review on this book: of course, since it is so good, let me attempt to make it lively with a sorting quiz.
Answer the questions, and keep a note of the choice number. Then tally up the points, and be sorted. If you have got a different result elsewhere, for instance, Pottermore, or find your results wrong, don't hesitate to let me know. Now, if you take a look at the points beforehand, remember, you are deceiving yourself.
“Oh,you may not think I'm pretty,
But don't judge on what you see,
I'll eat myself if you can find
A smarter hat than me.
You can keep your bowlers black,
Your tops hats sleek and tall,
For I'm the Hogwarts Sorting Hat
And I can cap them all.
There's nothing hidden in your head
The Sorting Hat can't see,
So try me on and I will tell you
Where you ought to be.
You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell brave of heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;
Or yet wise old Ravenclaw,
If you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;
Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means
To achive their ends.
So put me on! Don't be afraid!
And you won't get in a flap!
You're safe in my hands(though I have none)
For I'm a Thinking Cap!!”

Hufflepuff values hard work and justice. Its emblematic animal is the badger, and Yellow and Black are its colours. Hufflepuff corresponds to the element of earth. Your Head is Annie Shirley. SO long, Felicities!
17-24 points: Ravenclaw
You are quiet and silent. You are wise and intellectual, and acquiring knowledge must be what you year. You spend time in the library, and love books. Its emblematic animal is the eagle, and its colours are blue and bronze. Ravenclaw corresponds to the element of air. Your Head is Sherlock Holmes.
25-32 points: Slytherin
No offense, but you are supposed to be cunning, ambitious and resourceful. Its emblematic animal is the serpent, and its colours are emerald green and silver. Slytherin corresponds roughly to the element of water. Your Head is Artemis Fowl.
