Why don’t you like the Harry Potter books?

It’s too corny, too oversimplified and too contrived. It’s corny and soppy. Especially corny.

Anything that could go right, will go right. Anything that could go wrong, will never happen. Anything that does go wrong, will be quickly averted.

Examples of amateur dramatics

  1.
