It was funnier when I was younger, but I still got a few chuckles here and there! If fame is so great, why is the Headmaster infuriated by all the wild fans parking on and destroying the front lawn?
This book is hysterically funny, nutty, flaky, scatological and foul. Whether you love J. I read this book years ago, when Potter stuff was somewhat new. It wasn't that funny, and felt like I was reading a book version of one of the "Fill-in-the-Blank Movie". Maybe I missed something, but I didn't laugh much. Any Harry Potter fan knows the feeling you get when you read an HP book for the first, second, third, 20th time, etc. Though this book is a work of parody, it is extremely affectionate to the original source.
The settings are rich in their own way and the characters lively. The theme of this book is sort of the idea that the Harry Potter series was once a pure and clean thing, loved by everyone who read the books, but now is a cash cow owned by corporations and that we should all try to look back to what the books really mean, not the standardized travesty that companies have made it into.
I think that the crumbling settings and nasty characters in this book are a sort of metaphor, the idea that they were once the pure things of the HP books but are now twisted, lustful things that shouldn't really still exist.
I really love this book because of the theme. It definitely touches the source of the HP books and gives you the magical feeling of reading one. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. DPReview Digital Photography.
