It's not gay...it's just a stupid premise for a book.

I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...

I think the TS is gay, and by saying the book is the gayest book ever, he is saying that he loves it, and wishes to fornicate with it

amirite?

not ever, but quite

unless you're a little kid, in which case it might be "pretty cool." i swear the book is catered to kids, why is it so hot among everybody?

Sorry, no. Harry Potter, despite any pseudo-masculating protests to the contrary by 13-year-old metalheads with ironic but obvious hardons for Zakk Wylde and Alexi Laiho, Harry Potter is not "gay". It's at once one of the greatest children's books ever and a hugely significant literary event, based not only on its huge popularity and influence on this generation but its timelessness and lasting appeal. In 50 years people will mention Rowling in the same breath as Tolkein and Lewis. Anyone with any scrap of appreciation for literature or modern culture understands this.

NO, BUT I THINK THAT WRITING ENTIRELY IN CAPITALS AND IN ORANGE IS A TAD ANNOYING, TO SAY THE LEAST.


It's probably a bit gay too, ya'know?

Harry Potter sucks balls. I never read the seventh book; I wish I had bought one of those shirts they made that had all the spoilers on the front of it, before the book came out. It would've been epic lulz.

Overstatement much?

I like Harry Potter well enough, but it is simultaneously not the best children's book (or series) I have ever read, nor on the level of Tolkien, Lewis, LeGuin, or any other great. They are decent children's books, and provide an entertaining read, but that is about all. I don't understand why it is so popular (based on it's merits), but I don't begrudge it either.

It reintroduced a generation of near-illiterate children to the joys of reading.

No... Harry twatter is most certainly not a gay book, it's fabulous!
If you're in a war, instead of throwing a hand grenade at the enemy, throw one of those small pumpkins. Maybe it'll make everyone think how stupid war is, and while they are thinking, you can throw a real grenade at them.

Sort of. I don't deny that more children read it, but that doesn't make it the best. I would honestly like to know how many of them kept reading, and expanded their horizons.


I wish more children had parents like mine, who stoked my interest in reading from a young age. Reading really is a great thing, but I am skeptical that a single book (or series) can actually bring about such a catharsis in so many people. And I don't think a book is the answer to bring more people to reading, I think that lays with parents. I always say that there is a book for everyone out there, but it can't be the same book for everyone. In that way, Harry Potter seems more like a cultural phenomenon than anything.


Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that it brought some people to reading, but I don't think that should itself be a reason for calling it a great. That should be based purely on it's literary achievements, and it's pretty standard on that front. Honestly, it's formulaic, predictable, and repeatable (obviously, or it wouldn't be a series). Again, don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it a very good bit while reading it, but I'm also looking past the hype.


Meh. What a pointless post.

Wow, someone took a good stab at inflating their ego there. Swallow the dictionary did you? And you spelled Tolkien wrong.
I personally detest the Harry Potter set of novels (if you can call them that). I've read several of them and I still can't see where the attraction in them is, nor can I understand why they're so popular and bigged-up constantly.

EDIT: And I agree with the chap who claimed that Rowling will never be viewed with the same reverence as Tolkien or Lewis. In 50 years most of this will be forgotten, or shelved for people who enjoy classic literature, like Danielle Steele novels.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
