Harry Potter

Enough. I’m putting this one to bed. I so don’t want to finish it.

————————–

‘Not enough sex’ was my first thought, but then we do get to this part where boys are discussing the length and capacities of their wands and I perked up for a moment until I realised that they were actually talking about wands.

You will say that this is a book for children and that sex has no part in it, but, I think Randall has it right, as usual:

XKCD's take on young boys
XKCD’s take on young boys

Now, I don’t know a whole lot about boys on the verge of pubescence, but I’m fairly sure they are more interested in willies than wands. Perhaps this book would have sold better if the author had regarded that piece of advice. (Note to self: check if anybody bought this book. Perhaps the author would appreciate my thoughts.)

  1. Maybe you should go get laid instead of relying on the authors imigination to get you off .

  2. Thanks, Spencer, that was a great idea, and I tried it last night. My boyfriend was so pleased – I wish I’d thought of it earlier. It was fun and all but it doesn’t seem to have made me want to change my review. Sorry!

  3. I respect your opinion but can I be honest? Your reasons for disliking the book don’t seem valid enough to me. And I’m pretty sure if the author regarded your piece of advice, the book would’ve actually been WORSE. We’re talking magic here, not romance-contemporary. And the romance blossoms as the series progresses.

  4. Bloody brilliant! As a wise ass myself I think somebody should take the piss out of the whole Potter/Rowling franchise. Well done and forget about the censors. If you’re censored it just means you were right. Take it as a badge of honor.
