Whould that same person say that THIS "was a great book because it was encouraging kids to read again." or would they ask that all copies of the book be distroyed?
Well, wouldn't that depend on the content of the book?

I grew up with the Harry Potter books, from my teacher reading it to the class as "Story time" with all of us sitting in front of him, to buying the last 3 books myself. I have to say the first few books (1-3) were quite enjoyable. Mostly because I was around the same age as the main character, and the prospect of Magic School was pretty intriguing.

However after the fourth book I grew tired of the characters. By the 5th I was groaning. Why did I keep reading? I hoped it would get better. I almost didn't get through the final book. Not only were the characters the same, but they spent most of it in a tent.

I'm really glad I found this thread, it puts into words what I felt even back then. I read a fan-fic of the 7th book that I found more exciting than the actual book, spelling errors ignored of course.

Actually, I realized that there's a HP fanfic that's worse than HP.
It's known as My Immortal, starring Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven "Mary Sue" Way.

Ah yes, a friend of mine was telling me about that a few weeks ago. We had quite a chuckle over it.

To be fair, My Immortal is probably worse than every single piece of literature ever written. Even The Eye of Argon had some basic spelling standards and something resembling a plot.

Though My Immortal can be fun to read. It passes right through So Bad It's Good, crash lands in So Bad It's Horrible, then explodes into So Bad There's No Words For It, But It's Hilarious To Contemplate Someone Actually Took It Seriously. There's no TVTropes for that last one, yet.

You should write it, then. Epicness will ensue. Ah, TVT *huggles*.

I'm not clicking those links. Last time I went to TVT, I was just going to read Batman can Breathe in Space, and ended four hours later in magic not drowning skills.
