Read full description of the books Barry Trotter and the Unauthorized Parody:
Did you ever read Bored of the Rings? The Harvard Lampoon’s parody of Tolkien is one of the funniest little books I ever read. Crude, adolescent, and now terribly dated, it was also witty, inventive, and most of all funny. With fond memories of that parody in mind, I was looking forward to Barry Trotter and the Unauthorized Parody. While it has all of the crudity and adolescence of it’s illustrious predecessor, it fall short in one major category. It isn’t all that funny. While the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was a quick read at over 700 pages, Barry Trotter was a slow read at under 180. The book parodies the series, the writer, the business of publishing and moviemaking, marketing, and pop-culture fandom, but has very little to say about any of those things that is either original or funny. I can recall only two occasions when I thought the writer had been genuinely witty, but he so overplayed the joke, as if in fear that his readership would be to stupid to get it, that he bludgeoned all possible humor from it. Note for all future writers of literary parody: just messing around with the names and making the characters a bit shabby does not equal instant humor.
