Book Review - HP & the HBP

Finally finished reading Hairy Otter and the Half Boiled Pig.

Surprisingly, this round the kids are not so interested in it. In fact, when it first came out, none of them wanted to buy it. Then Alicia decided to buy it for my birthday. That was September and after 2 months I finally managed to finish it. Hurray!

I think JR Bowling is running out of idea. This book as compared to the earlier books is not as exciting and in fact positively boring at times. It lingers to long on Hairy Otter and his obession with Loneey Mavoc. Then I supposed she figures her readers are also growing up with Hairy Otter so she has thrown in a lot of lovely dovey stuff.

The final sequence at Hogwash sounds more like a Star Wars movie with burst of fires flying all over.

And what is a book without a dead hero - so somebody got to die - and this time Dumbnbore got KO by a snarling Snoop. At least that puts an end to the adulation of Dumbnbore.

Never mind did understand why the Christian got so work out about this series of book. It is nothing more than fiction and any goodnu kids will know that there are no such things as witches and wizard only got power rangers and pokemon.

Rating: ZZZZZZ
