I rest my case

Jul

It's fairly common knowledge that I'm not the world's greatest fan of Harry Potter. Sometimes my criticisms feel like a whisper in a hurricane, such is the level of fanaticism surrounding the books.

But if you won't take my word for it, how about that of the Booker Prize winner? AS Byatt, writing in the New York Times, said the latest book was “derivative” and catered for readers with stunted imaginations.

Enough said. I'm off to read some more Tolkien. :-)
