Far better than JK's next thriller; 'Harry Potter & The Mystery of the Seven Relatively Identical Books'


As (Primarily) Childrens books I was never expecting anything as thought provoking as an interstellar war between the Xeelee and the Photino birds, nor was I expecting a mythos that doesnt rely on "We alter there memory, Lawlz", I was however, that the books wouldn't magically (see what I did there) reach it's climax at the end of the school year. Seven years in a row.

Dumbledore: "Wait... It's the end of the school year, quickly, everyone, to your exams!"


I do however, forget my point.

I wouldn't exactly call them sophisticated or masterpieces, but I do think they are going to eventually go down as classics. Seeing with the series popularity and all......

Just because they sell well doesn't make them Classics.

Although I imagine it will do in this case.

How does something become a Classic, then?

I've read each book at least 5 times, haven't really kept count but it's probably a lot more

By being so freakishly awesome and with such freakishly brilliant plot hooks that you are left weeping at the end of the book because it's over.

Okay, that's a little exaggerated, but Harry potter doesn't fulfill the requirements.

Perhaps, but nobody knows about it if it doesn't sell, so it can't be a 'classic' per se. Though you can call anything you like a classic.

Of course Selling well =/= classic. DAN BROWN.

The one book I read (Da vinci code) read like an internet conspiracy forum strung together by horrible plot hooks and characters that make me want to stab things.

Stupid book.

The Da vinci code is not a classic. It was controversial but not a classic.
I personally did not enjoy the da vinci as much as angels and demons. Now that was a good book but still, not a classic.

I've read them all twice. I'm not that keen, really. But they're ok.

Point well made. I've seen better characterization on the backs of cereal boxes.

I've seen better characterization on this forum! My goodness! There's this one character, she likes to pee her pants in fury! It's hillarious!

it's impossible for me to keep track, as I don't actually sit down and reread the book from cover to cover each time. After the second time, I'll just pick it up, open it to a random point or a point I like, depending on my mood. But all in all, I've read each of them many, many times.


Just like me 0:)
