What I mean by that is;
Have you ever read Dickens, Poe, Shelley, Stoker, Austen, or Everett, and still thought of Rowling as a skillful writer?
In our modern time I can see people want something new, for example Rowling, but why is everyone so demented about her? I am sure if you have ever read any author listed above you too will see that Mrs. Rowling does not deserve to be famous for her writing at all.
She uses words such as put-outer, and all the creatures in her book are from mythology (dragons, griffins, phoenixes etc)
I suggest you read something such as Pride and Prejudice, or Dracula before saying that Rowling is the best author to have lived.
Besides Rowling we have many better authors for children in the 21st century.
For people under my age of fourteen, you have Lemony Snicket, Terry Pratchet etc.
I am sure most of the words I have used above would both frighten and confuse Rowling due to the fact that it takes an intelligent mind to use such words as `skillful' or `demented', and that is precisely what J.K Rowling is missing.
I have read Harry Potter, and am more than vexed by its simplicity, stupidity, and lack of imagination.
For all those who know nothing but Rowling in literature, I pity you, and laugh at you. You can go one thinking nobody is comparable to this author, but I would say comparing Dr Seuss to her would count as an honour to this woman who does not deserve her money any more than the readers deserve to read Harry Potter instead of a book that helps gain intellect as well as entertainment.
Do you not think that without the movies, without peer pressure and `going with the flow', and with more intellectuals, Rowling would still be sitting in cafes writing on napkins?
And can you not see where all her ideas come from?
Hogwarts was Hoggle's nickname in the movie `The Labyrinth'
Argos Filtch: Argos is a store name in England, and Filch is a reference to filth.
And so on, yet so as not to bore you I will not make my list go farther.
But back to the question to all Rowling fans;
Have you ever read classic literature, and afterwards still enjoyed Rowling's pathetic writing?
I am quite vexed by this so called `writer' at the moment.
