True Confession

I just, finally, started to read the first Harry Potter book. (I saw all the films, but didn’t bother much with the books.) I decided since I’m thinking of writing a YA Fantasy novel, I should study under the master, as it were.

Y’no, she really is as good as advertised. I don’t regret waiting so long to read it (partially because I know I don’t have to read the whole set unless I feel like it, as I already know the ending) but I am really impressed by her ability to build up a second world on top our own and make it come to life. J.K. Rowling really does have incredible talent for worldbuilding, even if logic may later take a few leaps out the window…

One thought on “True Confession

  1. The first book was charming. Being a sucker for wordsmithing I was biased to like it. And it was just the right length. No comment about the rest.
