I love how some HP fans automatically assume just because you don't
like Harry Potter means you lack imagination.
I, for one, certainly do not lack imagination. I just don't like Harry Potter. It's
not a big deal. I don't bash against it or Rowling. In fact I adore Rowling's
writing. I just never got into Harry Potter. Yet I mention this and a hundred fans of
the books are suddenly raising up and flaming the hell out of me. I never said it was
a bad book series because it's not. But let's face facts: Harry Potter
isn't the best book series ever invented ever. Or rather, it's not the best book
series ever invented ever to everyone.
I have no problem if you love it. I feel the same way about the Song of the Lioness
quartet or the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trilogy. But I'd prefer it if people
didn't automatically assume I lack imagination or hate good literature because I
Harry Potter is not the only good book series out there. There are going to be people
who don't like it. I'm sorry that this is the end of an era, I really am. I'm also
sorry I can't relate.
Now if you excuse me, I'll be over here crying over the Buffy the Vampire Slayer
reboot. That was my childhood, and now it's getting killed too. Oh, Whedon please don't let this happen.
Oh and just letting you know that even though I sound
like this whole Harry Potter thing upsets me
