So Alan Rickman died, but I remember him from Galaxy Quest and not Harry Potter.

I never read Harry Potter, even though it was a thing growing up during my time. It felt childish, but I grew up reading The Dark Tower, and some other strange series.

I feel I know the answer to this, but, is Harry Potter worth a read? Is it interesting? Or gay wiccan heathenism?

It's one of the better childrens series (how should that be phrased?) out there.

Bloom thinks it's trash -- if he took a second look at it, now that the hype's died down, I'm sure he'd see the books as being decent. His statement that they condition young readers to get into digesting trash is false: I quickly advanced from Harry Potter to Oliver Twist.

If you're a teen or adult, there's much better light reads out there, of course. Not all the fiction you read has to be literature, but you should make some attempt.

Wish fulfillment crap.

Read Unfortunate Events instead, shit's like Pynchon for kids.

I agree with this guy. I read HP when I was a kid/teen and I liked it, as far as books aimed at young people go it's good, but not the best out there. I'm not sure if its appeal holds up to older audiences too, especially if you're accustomed to more literary fiction. You can give it a try, but if you're over 20 and going into Philosopher's Stone now I don't think you'll care much for it.

If it 'felt childish' when you were an actual child, why on earth would you want to read it as an adult?
>>
Why is Galaxy quest so comfy? It should have been shit but it was actually one of the best parody films of the last decade

because Alan Rickman, Tony Shaloub, and motherfucking Sigourney Weaver were in it.
