4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant Surprise, 25 July 2005
This review is from: Barry Trotter And The Shameless Parody (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
Having heard about this book i decided to buy it. It definately displays a unique charm. I like the Harry Potter books and this is like a darker, funnier, cruder version. The writing isn't as good as JK Rowling's but it's still gripping. The author's use of crude humour, easy jokes, and poking fun at itself makes it hilarious. The plot is fast paced, and sometimes hard to follow, with sudden twists. Although sometimes it seems to exert too much effort to win laughs it is a good, well-worth read. It is way funnier than Harry Potter and some could argue better. More aimed at older readers though but if you like parodies or Harry Potter, or if you hate Harry Potter from his stupid scar to his pet owl's droppings, you should read this funny book. Read about Barry's quest to stop a film about him being made with help from Ermine and Lon who suffered a tragic Quiddet accident, resulting in him having half a Labrador's brain. Ruder, cruder, funnier, darker.
