  • Uau! Ouvi dizer também que a personagem (ou pelo menos o nome) de “Salazar Slytherin” foi inspirada pelo António de Oliveira Salazar (o ditador do Estado Novo).

  • Existe uma referência muito direta à Livraria Lello nos seu livros Should this not be nos seus livros?? The seus agreeing in the plural with livros?
    Or nos livros dela?

    No início dos anos noventa, Rowling viveu na cidade do Porto. If she lived there some time ie used to live there, should this not
    be Rowling vivia na cidade do Porto??

    • Olá Peter. “nos seu livros” is definitely a typo, thanks for catching it 🙂 As for “viveu” vs. “vivia”, both could be used here. “Vivia” tells us that at the time, Rowling was living in Porto, but it’s very open ended. With “viveu”, you are clearly told that she only lived there during the early 90s and not a day more, so to speak.
