BOOK WOMAN HAS PROBLEM WITH BOOKS
I don't know why people like Harry Potter. I have a few guesses like...it's so stupid and long that teens can say, 'I read a really long novel and I got it.' If you think about it, a good writer tries to teach you something but Harry Potter is dry. I always believed what I read in a book was true. Now that I am writing a book and looking into screenplay writing, I research a lot so that my ideas work properly. My favorite series is Artemis Fowl. You can just tell that the author, Eoin Colfer, (pronounced 'Owen', by the way) is a really smart guy. And I love the way he writes. J.K. Rowling is definitely not like Eoin. She has trouble writing a real sentence! I also like it when the author tries to explain why thing are the way they are or why we don't see fairies. J.K. did that but not very well. We don't see wizards disappearing into walls. She just didn't try hard enough to please the smart people. Another thing that really bugs me, snakes cannot hear so how could Harry Potty speak to it? She just didn't try hard enough to please the smart people but she's a millionaire. That says something about yesterday's teens. Now I would like to complain about today's teens. Today's teens like the Twilight series but I don't see why. I've only read the first book but it wasn't good enough to motivate me to read the others. Yea, the vamps are cool but the plot isn't. It's good to have strong characters and an interesting story setting but that was the only thing keeping me going or I wouldn't have finished it. And still Stephanie is rich. Tell's you something about teens today.
