Because my kids own books and films, I've been through the Harry Potter experience from go to whoa.
Aside from overwhelming feeling that J K Rowling's success is based upon slick marketing rather than good writing, I have one serious issue with her books:
I get a strong impression that two different writers are involved.
Maybe it's a deliberate ploy of Rowling's and she's much cleverer than I'm prepared to see?
Has anyone got any comments in this vein? Is it possible that Rowling, like Dick Francis, has her very own Chamber of Secrets?
The subject is obviously out there in some form - there's even a betting market on it here - with odds of 25:1 against her having used ghost writers.
