Question: So now you are writing a review about Harry Potter?

Answer: Yes, I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone just because the whole world was going crazy about Harry Potter

Q: So did you enjoy reading the book?

A : No. It was children’s type of a book. Bad for children though. Enid Blyton was much better in a way.

Q: But millions of adults and kids the world over enjoy the Harry Potter series.

A: I don’t understand why adults read the Potter books and then behave crazy. I think adults should read this book to their children/grand children like bedtime stories. Though Rawlings is a stupid writer.

Q: Stupid? Do you know the Potter books have been translated in 35 languages?

A: I will not translate this book in Marathi nor will I recommend that others do. Rowlings is a bad bad writer. She is wicked.

Q: What is bad about the book?

A: Everything. The books reinforces beliefs in things like witches, magic, life after death and many other superstitions. Rawlings is a stupid writer.

Q: But surely you must have enjoyed a few parts?

A: Yes, I did enjoy the aerial hockey match, when team players fly on brooms chasing some sort of a magic ball and scoring goals. But the final match was rigged in Harry Potters favor,. like our Cricket matches and Harry Potter’s team won. Even in the year end Inter House Championship, the Head Master rigged the entire thing and Harry Potter’s House won. Does not happen this way. I went to a boarding school. I know. Rawlings is a stupid writer.

Q: What else?

A: Harry Potter’s foster parents and his cousins. They were shown to be treating Harry Potter very badly. This is just not possible in this time and age yet Rowlings the writer went to great lengths to show how bad they were. Modern day foster parents are very kind and good folks. Else Police arrests them and puts them in jail.

Q: Okay. Conceded. But overall the book is a fantasy book.. So there are good folks and bad folks in the book like any other book. What about the Boarding School? That was interesting.

A: I been to boarding schools. They are not like the one Harry Potter went to. The Harry Potter School had bad culture, bad sportmans’ spirit, bad blood, bad dogs, too many bad students and treacherous teachers and things like that. Even bad dogs. One teacher was shown as a very very bad man who steals and kills people. Good boarding schools have good culture, good teachers, good folks. No teachers ever killed anyone. In this book, there were too many bad folks too few good folks. Everything was rigged in Harry’s favor. Rowlings is a stupid writer.

Q: Don’t say that again in again. Did you see the movie?

A: Yes. Just as bad as the book. No change.

Q: So is this your final opinion? That Rawlings is a stupid writer.

A: Yes. But Harry was a good smart boy. I like Harry Potter.
