    1 thought on “Barry Trotter and the Shameless Parody”

    1. Ugh, this was abysmal, truly terrible. I moderately enjoyed Nightlight: A Parody so I thought I'd give this a try. This is not even remotely funny, it's just stupid. Just changing the names of things does not a parody make, especially when the name changes themselves are uninspired and humorless. You can find a parody on YouTube that will give you more laughs in 1 minute than the hours it will take you to trudge through this crap. Seriously, you want Harry Potter humor? Just visit Google.

    2. 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 P [...]

    3. I simply cannot compliment the author and the narrator enough. Not only is it a-laugh-a-line funny, but the high-level ventriloquism Christopher uses adds a level of shine that outstrips almost any reading experience. Just wait until you hear and imagine Barry Trotter hit the redial button on his uncle's address book. There are also references to the top actors and actresses of the day, but that doesn't really impede this book's withstanding of the test of time.The book starts off simply, with B [...]

    4. I got to page 70, but didn't get any further because I found it rather boring. What humour there was seemed rather dry and dull: calling Fred and George "Ferd and Jorge" (or whatever it was) isn't my idea of good wit. There was little plot, which mostly seemed to centre around how run-down everything was.I found the original Harry Potter books were funnier. And the stories had more substance. My advice: stick with them.

    5. I read this book and although I was confused (seems to be an extended theme in my reviews) at first if I liked it or not. However as I read on I found it to be hillarious and it's spontaneous way of creating odd situations for the characters. Also the ending really throws you, But it's a good throwing, it took me a while to catch up with the book but toher than that it was a wonderfully funny read.

    6. I'm not gonna finish this crap! And I'm not saying this because I Love Harry Potter and cannot laugh about parodies! It's just stupid and exaggerated! It's like the Author put every thought he had into one big bowl and picked randomly which one to use next!

    7. This was one of the dumbest things I ever read. It tried too hard. It started out funny but got insanely annoying very, very fast. Skip it.

    8. This is definitely the stupidest book I've read in a long time. It was kind of funny in parts, but mostly just ridiculous. Fortunately, it's not very long.

    9. Horrible. Unfunny. "Humour" in this book consists of having silly names for well known people and things. A chore to read. Novelty lasts about 1, maybe 2 pages. [Zzzz]

    10. The Barry Trotter books are parodies on the actual series. They are quite hilarious and worth a read if you have some extra time on your hands. They do however, become a bit wearisome at points, since they, in now way, can measure up to the fabulosity of the original series.

    11. Let me clear a few things before I start reviewing this satire. I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter series. They were the first ever series I read and it was love at first sight, or should I rather say, love at first read. I immediately fell in love with the writing, the plot, the twists, the places and especially the amazing characters. Each and every single detail mesmerised me and left me in awe. For me, it's still the perfect novel (series) ever written. Moving ahead, I bought this parody to know [...]

    12. I rarely rate a book before I finish it but then, I rarely decide flat-out to not finish a book. I can usually at least CONVINCE myself there is a chance that I'm not wasting my time, that I'll get around to it eventually.Not in this case. There is exactly two demographics for Barry Trotter--people who read the first Harry Potter book and didn't care for it (and who have a crude sense of humor), and people who were forced to see the movie and hated it.Every single character is a cop-out, for exa [...]

    13. I could write a really long review explaining the manifold ways in which Barry Trotter and the Shameless Parody was a) stupid b) really stupid c) really really stupid and d) disgusting but I'm not going to waste my time when I can sum it up in a few words: endless toilet humour and sex jokes. Strangely I don't find the idea of Dumbledore pissing on a model of Harry or Hermione's top being turned invisible absolutely fucking hillarious, I wonder why? Maybe because I'm not a thirteen year old boy? [...]

    14. Autor wyśmiewa nie tyle książkę Rowling, co wielką machinę marketingową wiążącą się z ową pozycją. To jedyny plus. Nooo, może jeszcze stylizacja Lorda Vielokonta na Niemca. ;) Reszta to totalne dno. Nie wiem, czemu Internauci uważają tę parodię za błyskotliwą. "Błyskotliwa" to ostatnie określenie, jakie do niej pasuje. Książka najzwyczajniej w świecie jest NUDNA. Powiem szczerze, że pierwowzór bywał miejscami śmieszniejszy. Jeśli autor uważał, że wystarczy kilka [...]

    15. I HATED IT. There are very few books that I will not finish and this is one of them. It bills itself as a parody of Harry Potter. It had the potential to be really funny, but I didn't find it funny. The facet that Gerber changed the names (Harry to Barry) wasn't too funny. He thought that being mean-spirited about everything would translate to humor, which it doesn't. I wish I could give it zero stars.

    16. A hysterical wink and poke parody of the Harry Potter series. Barry Trotter is a n'er do well, a perpetual student at Hogwash. But a movie deal threatens his idylic slacker lifestyle. The humor ranges from sophmoric to sophisticated. Fair warning: this is really for adults only.

    17. [Quick review from memory until I re-read and re-review at a later date:I mean, really. Vaguely funny but a definite rider on someone else's success. Basically fan fiction? I just feel I need to re-read to understand why I bought the next two]

    18. Though it had its funny bits (I still can't get over the name Lord Valumart), all in all it didn't quite amuse me as much as I'd expected it to. But it kept me entertained while I waited for my car to get fixed, so it was worth reading. :)

    19. While trying to be funny, it fell into a sort of annoying crudeness, and the best part about it was getting it over with. Best skipped, I think.

    20. Worst.Book.Ever. I wanted it to be funny so badly because I love good parodies, but this was in no way funny. It was just really lame.

    21. This is a spoof on Harry Potter. It is a short book, but I didn't think it was that funny. I would rather just read any Harry Potter book instead.

    22. *This review was initially published on The Readdicts Book Blog. For more reviews, go here.I have one word to describe this book- STUPID. Honestly, I expected Barry Trotter and the Shameless Parody to be hilarious because well, it's a parody. But instead, it turned out to be intolerable, unnecessary and straight up stupid.Barry Trotter had been lying on my shelf for so long that I finally decided to give it a go. I remember browsing through this book back when I was a teen and my world revolved [...]

    23. Shameless cash grab, honestly advertised as being a shameless cash grab. While I did find some situations in it moderately funny, this is the print version of what would otherwise be a below-average so-unfunny-it-hurts-and-only-sometimes-becomes-funny-again fan fiction.There are a few sentences in this thing - and I'm ashamed to say - that actually made me laugh out loud, but they're not worth fighting your way through the rest of it.It's not funny enough to be a comedy.It's not deconstructing H [...]

    24. Rating - 2.5(Warning, strong language, used completely for comedic purposes. I’m not mad)This book was a complete headfuck. Insanely clever, but in the end- a giant mess.For what it was, I quite enjoyed it. However it’s not spectacular and the story was pretty shit and confusing 70% of the time.The ending was completely fucked and the author even made a side-note to explain that even he had no idea what he was writing.A quick read, and something to consider if you won’t get offended by Pot [...]
