Now it is easy to find out stupids , with a simple question.
Are you a harry potter reader ??
* 101 Books is out of office this week. But all week I am featuring the top 5 most popular NEW posts (by traffic) in 2014. I’ll return with new posts on January 5.
Harry Potter readers are stupid?
So says A.S. Byatt, author of Possession. I’m paraphrasing.
The more I read about A.S. Byatt, the less likeable she seems.
Last week, we talked about her dismissiveness of bloggers and social media. This week, let’s talk about how much she dislikes Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling. How fun!
Byatt comes across as the quintessential book snob. The complex, fantastical world of Harry Potter isn’t good enough for her. J.K. Rowling is just a simpleton, parroting old clichés.
This comes from an op-ed Byatt wrote for the New York Times in 2003.
