Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Barry Trotter is pretty disreputable and unpleasant. Imagine what he was like as a teenager.
Here's the beginning of the whole sorry tale. Did Barry and Ermine do it? (Their homwork, that is.) How exactly did Lon end up with a hole in his head that whistles when the wind blows? Was Lord Valumart always that crass? And where did that ridiculous German accent come from?
As funny and twisted as the first two books, BARRY TROTTER AND THE DEAD HORSE is also as affectionate towards JK Rowling's originals. This has lead to the books gaining a devoted following amongst fans of Harry Potter as well as being a welcome antidote for the over-egging (eeuwww) of the boy wizard. A process that we're not a part of at all. Oh no. Not even a tiny bit.

The first two "Barry Trotter" books are among the best comedies I've ever read. This one is by far the worst. How do I loath this book? Let me count the ways...
1.) The cartoony style of humor from the first two books is gone, replaced by a mainstream, gross-out humor. Wanna hear about men washing their hair with dung? Or people eating pig vulvas for desert? No? Then skip this book.
2.) It's hardly a "Barry Trotter" book at all. It doesn't aim to spoof "Harry Potter," and it doesn't focus on its own stars from the first two books. Instead, it revolves almost entirely around Barry and his first girlfriend, an original character named Bea, who is bland and un-funny. I never thought "Barry Trotter" of all things would fall victim to the dreaded Mary Sue, but here it is. If Gerber was trying to deliberately spoof the Mary Sue, he failed, miserably.
3.) When Gerber isn't being disgusting or indulging in his O.C. Bea, his jokes and plot-twists are trite and predictable. Spoiler: Barry's shrink is Lord Valumart! Bet no one saw that coming! With what great villains Henratty and Blumblemore were in the last book, I was very disappointed to be treated to a Valumart cop-out this time.
4.) No new "Harry Potter" spoofs (that were funny). The gold of the last book was that we got to see even more characters from "Harry Potter" given hilarious parody equivalents in the "Barry Trotter" universe. With this book, I was anticipating spoofs of Tonks, Moody, Luna, Rita Skeeter, and other characters that didn't make it into the first two "Barry Trotter" books. Well, the only two new "Potterverse" characters to be introduced were Luna and Moody, and neither was funny. Gerber didn't even bother spoofing those characters; he just made some puns out of their names, and tacked generic personalities onto them.
Michael Gerber, you let me down, major.
Luckily, your first two books were hilarious enough to compensate for this abomination.
