You're going a little far there. May not be to your taste or anyone else's, but that's hyperbole.
To be fair, HP will be meh when you've witnessed the awesome story telling of Dark Souls and Bloodborne.
you're not wrong, but artemis fowl was one of those rare "marketed as kid books, but actually pretty dark and nasty series" alongside vampire's assistant. i read a metric ton of books as a kid but for mainstream fantasy series both of those delivered where harry lacked (ie the main character wasn't a total goodygoody white knight and had some actual moral conflict).
That's what I liked about Kvothe in Kingkiller Chronicles. Dude is a genius and he's very talented, BUT he has also has a serious lack of patience which has gotten him into some shit. He also has no qualms about killing someone if he's being threatened. His arrogance also has been a downfall to him many times, so he's not perfect. In fact, you could say that a lot of the shit he gets into is his fault. Doesn't always know when to let feuds go and has a tendency to be a bit of a smart ass which again, does him no favors.
You all should be a lot nicer to Troll.
another fantasy series i thoroughly enjoyed was the prince of thorns trilogy by mark lawrence. the main character is pretty much a brutish unrepentant asshole but the series is still a great read. it's very game of thrones meets chronicles of shannara.
And here I thought I was going to be on the receiving end of a talking to for disliking Harry Potter... *sigh* SSO, u mah only friend
I'll go ahead and admit that I loved Harry Potter. Never read the books, and didn't watch the movies until I was in my 30s, but I really enjoyed it for what it was.
Tolkien's only really good book is the Hobbit, since it focuses on, you know actually telling a story and not getting sidetracked by stupid poems and songs that Tolkien decided to cram into it.
LOTR has about 50% of its pages dealing with stupid shit like song and poems and useless backstory that doesn't always tie into the main story *cough* tom bombadil and any of the stuff dealing with the sackville bagginses*cough* Silmarillion and his subsequent other books are even bigger offenders of that crime.
I was big into the books as a kid but the movies sucked a lot of the magic (hah!) out of the series.
And since JKR took so long to finish the series, by the time Deathly Hallows rolled around, I was able to kind of see through the story for what it was- which was a very okay children's fantasy series. I tried to, but never actually finished it. It literally didn't hold my attention anymore.
Artemis Fowl was lit tho.
bring me the horizon was never a good metal band, but their new album is basically mediocre trap music
This is the unpopular opinion thread...
oh yeah in that case cannibal corpse sucks
Okay, I'll repeat myself...
THIS IS THE UNPOPULAR OPINION THREAD.
fine, fine, here's one that always riles people up. Trems suck. especially floyds.
That's more like it. Fuck trems.
It was actually quite understating my opinion on Harry Potter and the exact opposite of hyperbole.
You are the Simon Cowell of books.
My Dad read books to me as a very young child and it probably spoiled me. Puppet Masters before I was in Grade 1.
