Trying too hard,
By A Customer
This review is from: Barry Trotter And The Shameless Parody (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
Yes, it was amusing but it was also hard going. The author was trying so hard to come up with a 'witty' take on every name in the original Harry Potter that I just felt the plot and writing got forgotton. I plodded on as I don't like to leave a book unfinished but I was glad to come to the end of it. If you want a well written fantasy book, buy Harry Potter, if you want a well written parody - don't buy this!!
