Team Potter


Seeing as I am in fact in possession of a wand, I will not hesitate to use an unforgivable curse on anyone who says bad things about Harry Potter. Even Stephen King enjoys the series, and he wrote The Dark Towers (among other wonderful things), so he clearly knows his shit. My friend was reading Stephen Kings' On Writing, and he sent me this quote:
Probably J. k. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, is the current champ when it comes to back story. You could do worse than read these, noting how effortlessly each new book recaps what has gone before. (Also, the Harry Potter novels are just fun, pure story from beginning to end.)
          Stephen King approves, your argument is invalid.
