Reviews - What do customers think about Harry Pouter And Phil O'dendron's Stone?
Bah... Mar 8, 2007
What a horrible parody. It's not even remotely funny.
Go for Barry Trotter and the Unauthorized Parody... now THAT'S a good parody.

Hey...The book is written as it is because the author is Czech. So you must appreciate the efort he gave to this book. In the author's mother tongue, the book is great and I can't complain about it. That's all I want to say. Thanks, bye.
Spam email needs a much better writer Feb 1, 2006
The spam email sent out seems to have been written by someone for whom English is a recently acquired language, or perhaps even auto-translated using an online translation service.
While I wish all struggling authors well, please use this as an example of things to avoid in marketing your book.
I could forgive a spam email, as I have purchased a similar book by a different author, so it is targeted. But I can't forgive one that is so poorly written.
A parody should be funny, the spam mail should have been witty and funny. It should definitely have included a few sample paragraphs from the book so we could get the flavor of the book. Show us, don't tell us.
Illiterates promoting a book Jan 31, 2006
I'm with "Hatespam". My spam filter actually dumped the email about this book into my trash but I fished it out and looked at it. this site shouldn't even be carrying this crap - not because it's an alleged parody but because it's an alleged book. The email was illiterate. The senders could not spell half the words they used, which is NOT a good sign. Words by the way that inlcuded "Huckleberry" and "address". spam is not acceptable promotion. Don't buy this unless you believe that sending spam to promote a book, and the inability to spell are acceptable. They aren't here.
Worthless book promoted by spam. Don't buy. Jan 28, 2006
I also received the spam promoting this book. I'd love to know how they got my email because, unlike they imply, I don't frequent book chats.
This is the lowest form of promotion. Don't fall for it.
It's also funny that a spammer needs to resort to using other peoples ideas (Harry Potter) for a book idea. Pretty pathetic.
