Many of you may think that I am anti-feminist, that is not true I am anti third wave feminist. Yes there is a different before anyone says anything, Due to the tantied word for me there’s days I no longer call myself a femmist, I call myself a equalise, because I am a strong supporter of everyone’s rights. I think everyone should have the same opportunities and the same rights.
So if you choose to not go to work today can you make sure that if your job has an impact of anyone’s life or education that you make sure that there is someone to take your place. What would happen is a Doctor, who had to perform a lifesaving opporation today failed to turn up? What happened if a lawyer didn’t turn up and there client ende up going to jail for a crime they didn’t do? They won’t take the day off because they know that them going to do there job has a bigger impact than going to some march.
If I had a child and I found out the school was closing due to this march I would phone up the school and scream down the phone (I mean that’s what liberals do when they don’t get their way) I just don’t think that a school should close because a few woman want to take the day off, it is not right. I think any woman how has a postion of power and take the day off should be fired.
What I find even funnier is that these woman will post pictures on Instagram, twitter, Facebook and all over the internet using there phones and tablets all in support of how the world will crumble without them are using Men’s products to spread the word. Like what?
Let’s talking about something which really matters, in Iran on march 4th 2004 police beated hundreds of men and woman who were planning a rally. They then put hundreds of woman in several days of solitary so that they couldn’t march on the eighth like the did the previous year. They are the people that need woman’s day’ they are the people that you need to go over and march fo to show that Woman are badass.
In countries like Pakistan this day is so show that woman are still be oppressed in this day age and it is to commemorate their own going struggles. They need this day to be able to get people to notice that they are people as well, and it is not just a man’s world. Those are the people I support, those are the people that re fighting for their lives.
Does anyone actually know what the UN has classed this day as this year? because for those who don’t know every year the UN has a theme which is what International Woman’s day is suppose to represent every year. This years it is meant to represent ‘Woman in the Changing World of Work’ How are you meant to change the world of work, if you are not at work? My mother has changed her world of work but turning up every day and making everyone see that she is more than just a woman. She is brave she is powerful and she can make sure that everyone will and can benefits to the impact that she makes.
My mother works for an architect firm and she was the first woman on the board of the directors and she was the fist non-architect. That is her making a difference, by being at work and showing how much her comanpy need her, not by shouting out ove every little thing, be a strong independent woman.
I want to take my time to talk about some people I admire. There are some people like JK Rowling, and Veronica Roth who I admire because of the stories they create. The there are people who I admire such as Emma Watson, Jenifer Lawrence, Andre Garfield and Emma Stone because of the stories they perform. There are people like Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran who I admire because of the songs they write and sing. Lastly there are people like Paul Joseph Watson, Tomi Lahren, Liz Wheeler and of course the infamous Milo Yiannaopoulos who all speak for the right. Now I know our side mess up a lot and I don’t agree with what they say all the time but those four people no matter what hate comes there way are still there, are still fighting for what they believe in and are still good people even if you disagree with there politics.
I watch pretty much all there videos, I actually spent one day watching every one of Paul’s videos as he is a new discovery of mine, he uses facts and humour to get across what he believes in which is something I love. There is also a bonus of him being British and I always do my best to support our own. One of his videos is actually why I wanted to write this it was his video about those celebrities which say our country is not full, that we have plenty of room for migration.
I am going to talk about the place where I grew up, I live in the South West of England in the county of Somerset a place that has a place where 98.8% of the population are white 0.3% are Asian, 0.2% are black. The other 0.7% is a mix of everything else. Now I am going to talk about the school I went to a school which had people of 65 nationalities. A school here twenty percent of the school were international students. I would also like to add it was a school founded by Indian princes. It is also a school which produces more Olympians than any other school not just for Great Britain but for other countries. It is also a school which has produced a number of politicians, both left and right winged. It produced a number of musicians such as Lily Allen, Ted Dwayne (A member of Mumford and Sons) Ella Eyre (She was in the year above me, she is the sweetest girl ever so go check her out)) Also produced James Hewitt (Lover of Princess Diana of Wales) Salem Bin Laden (Yeah it’s Osama’s brother, thought that would amuse people) Chris Robshaw, the captain of the England rugby team. Actors Alex Pettyfer and Nicolette Sheridan. Other people worth mentions are John Sergeant, Mark Forster, as well as a number of royalty from Yemen, Yugoslavia, Egypt, Thailand, as well as India of course. It is a school full of diversity and therefore I think as someone who spent eight years of my life surrounded by people from many different countries I think I probably have a better understanding of those people than most.
I am all for immigration, I am so thankful of those eight years. If I had voted for the EU referendum I would have voted to stay in, like that of my parents and brother. I wasn’t really sure at the time about politics so didn’t just want to vote because everyone else around me was voting to stay in. Immigration is a good thing, I have learnt so much about other countries, other religions, just by being around and I think it is a good thing. What I am not for is mass immigration. Not when we have countless people on the streets especially war heroes and pregnant woman. For example I think there should be a cap at 100,000 in this country that is still loads and yes in ten years that would be one million people. I think anyone who comes to this countries and then commits a crime no matter how small should be deported at once. I think the interviews conducted on people who which to move to this country should be done under oath and therefore if they lied then they have broken the law and be deported. The United Kingdom has an issue with over population and something needs to happen about it, I hope that maybe this Brexit thing will help out this thing, but I don’t have a lot of hope. I think the people in power need to be a little harsher when it comes to people coming to our country.
I think immigration is a good thing but I do think those houses being built around the country should be going to our war soldiers. I wish I could help them but I am a student with very little money. I think if you come to this country you have to integrate. Actually that is something else I can talk about. When I was at school we have a lot of people from the Middle East and we had a lot of people from places like China. During lunch time and break times the people from China did tend to stick to one another, I guess it was more so they could speak their common tongue which I totally understand . During lessons and sport and other after school activists they made an effort to make sure they are apart of classes. The people from the Middle East very rarely hung out with each other, sure some of them knew each other from back home and sure said hey and all that shite but they were very integrated within the school. I am now at Uni and it seems to be a very different story.
I am all for immigration like I said, but I don’t think it should be our job to sort and host people from other countries because of the rise of ISIS. I don’t agree with the War that is going on but I think it is needed, I think if America hadn’t gone into to attack them then it could have become much like the rise of Hitler which is not something we ever want a repeat of, but we don’t know which side these people fall on and we are letting them in to our country. I just find it rather odd that we are accepting people from countries which are known to have strong connections with the west’s enemy and are expected to be happy about the whole thing.
I did a little research into looking at Germany in the 1940’s where German Jews left their homeland. Countries like France, Holland, Belgium, Australia, South Africa and even Canada admitted Jews into the countries, the total being around 23,000, and there was expected to be around 500,000 Jews in Germany. Britain didn’t want to take anyone nor did America incase there was a spy. These were people who were being murdered for who they were and yet America and the UK didn’t want to help just incase. Yet that was thought to be right in that time because Nazism was thought to be the most horrid thing in the world. Some sixty years later Britain has pledge to take in more people than they can afford. Britain wants to take in 20,000 people from Syria a country which is under control of ISIS. Yes I understand that not everyone in the country has ties with ISIS, the population in 2000 of Syria was thought to be around 22 million. As I am writing this it is just over 18 Million and you can follow the population in a link below. Now around five million people from Syria have be housed in another country. According to the UN we have to house another 13.5 million people from Syria, you know that country which is controlled by ISIS. They are in theory saying that a country which is control by ISIS the same way Hitler controlled Germany and the same way North Korea is controlled it’s population, but they are saying more than half that doesn’t support ISIS at all. Like what? They would have been brainwashed whether they know it or not is a different story. I just think everyone is a big hypocrite when it comes this subject. ISIS even said they were sending spy’s yet that is not enough for Great Britain and the rest of the world to say no we don’t trust you. We welcome everyone. I just think it is stupid.
Like I said get everyone to take an oath so they have to promise to integrate and contribute to society and if they cause violence or scare those who live in this countries then out they go no exceptions. Come to my country follow my laws. That being said you do that and I would love to talk to you because I believe learning about other countries is so important.
Just going to add something a little happy on here because I am trying to work about politics but I am just going around in a circle so I am going to take this from my old blog and put it on here.
So a review on the bravissimo swimwear. Also, a great excuse to show off my body because let’s be quite honest I have a good body for someone who doesn’t work out. When I got to about 14 my boobs just suddenly got bigger but I didn’t gain any weight. I think I went up four cup sizes in a year. Although my band size (26) doesn’t actually exist in most swim wear or bras this brand does however make slightly tighter band sizes which fit me perfectly (it does change on the style as some are a little loose) so since there I’ve struggled to find pretty and big bras. My mum was told about this brand a fair few years ago as I have seemed to inherit her big boobs, so after failing to find my size on yet another shopping trip my mum told me to try this brand. Most of my bras are under £20 as I get them in the sale and well my boobs are still growing so do not want to spend more than that on something very few people see. This was swimwear I brought last year, mix and match another thing I like about this brand you don’t have to by the set if you don’t want to. Your bottoms may still fit you, but the top might not and vice verse. They are comfortable, stylish and fit well. The one thing I will say is some brands fit certain boobs shapes better than others but that’s more of a guess thing, they do have a return policy so always worth a look before you buy anything. If you find a brand that fit well stick to it changes of coming across a bra that doesn’t fit well is slim. This website also have there own sizing chart which you should follow before buying one. 90% of people wear the wrong size. I spent much of my life wearing a band 32 which was far too big for me. They have the most accurate sizing guide I’ve come across, worth the look. I give this brand a 4.5/5
I believe that question is a good summary of why I have a huge issue of the whole transgender movement. When asking people about why the feel they are born in the wrong body the answer tends to be a bunch of social stereotypes. Here are an example of what female and male characteristics are…
I have grown up with a mother who does all the DIY and a father who is a better cook. Thoses are two social stereotypes so if we are going on the theory behind why transgender people feel that way then my mother should be a man and my dad should be a woman. When I was at prep school (look at me I am posh haha) at the end of every year they gave out prizes for every subject, I won three out of four times in the subject of design and technology which according to social expectations that is a male subject. Does that mean identify as male? NO IT DOES NOT. I grew in a family that you can act and dress like you want and that will compared to how I am meant to behave according to my sex.
i just think changing your gender is so pointless when we have been spending years trying to close the gap of social expectations. If you are born a female and believe you have the characteristics of a boy, so fucking what? That does not mean you were born in the wrong body it just means you have more of a male personality. I have more of a male personality but that doesn’t mean I would change everything about myself just to align my body with my mind. I wish my boobs were smaller, and wish that guys clothing did my size because I’ve always thought it was better (and cheaper) than that of girls. None of thoses things mean I am a man in a woman’s body. They just mean I’ve come to accept that it doesn’t matter what you look like you can be anything you put your mind to it without having to go through surgery and such.
While I am writing this I am currently watching the football, Arsenal vs Sutton if you want to know which game. I am an arsenal fan you could say me having an interest in football is in fact a male trait but again that doesn’t mean I am a man. I have no issue if you are a boy and want to wear make-up. I have no issue if you are a woman and you want to play rugby but I don’t think just acting like a stereotype means you are that gender. By changing your gender or attempting to, you are actually making those social expectations a whole lot worst and so I honestly don’t like the whole movement of transgender people. This is coming from a girl who may like my dresses but my personality and character is a lot more of a male stereotypes than that of a woman’s.
Stop conforming to social expectations and stereotypes of what characteristics you should have and relate it back to your sex.
I would just like to say if you can give me an answer to the question why do you think you were born in the wrong body? Without talking about stereotypes then you are more than welcome to have a go at what I have said.
Now I am all for freedom of speech, I use this blog to tell my viewpoints but what I don’t do is go out of my way to find people who disagree with me and hate on everything they believe. For example me saying ‘I think President Trump is a complete idiot and I will not accept him as my president because he is a horrible human being, a racist, a bigot, a fascist and will destroy america’ that is hate speech. Saying the words ‘I am not overly a fan of trump as I disagree with his politics and i question his character but I must learn to come to accept that he is the president and trust that if he does a bad job we have the impeached system in place’ Both those things show a similar message but one is hate speech and one in not. I am all for people showing their opinions but do it like the second one rather than shoving mean insults and hate in their direction.
Another thing I would like to talk about is the protests, because I think they these are highly connected. Like I said I am all for Freedom of Speech what I do not accept is violence in any form no matter who you are. I don’t understand why some republicans can killed people bashed on race and religion. I do not understand why some Liberals have destroyed property and hurt innocent people just because of who they choose to support in terms of politics. I do not understand why boycotting in a thing when it comes to politics and think that both sides of politics are just as bad as each other if you look as single cases.
I live in england, so some people will be like ‘why is this british chick talking about my politics?’ Well it fasanties me how there can be so much hate between people and I try my best to look at all the facts, something which I regularly talk about. I don’t know much about the mass shootings which happened in america, that being said it is an argument that the left often bring up that it is always the republicans that cause the mass shootings. there might be some sort of link between politics and whether you feel the need to go and kill and hurt people but i would like to think that there isn’t. For example in this year the biggest mass shooting was done by a guy called Esteban Santiago, who was not a republican. For those who don’t know who he is he was the one who is thought have done the florida airport shootings. This is in america by there way. My source is here. For those who wish to just look at the list.
Even though I have said that republicans or right winged people have a harder time accepting people. I am saying that by using the information i have about the ALT Right when it comes to british politics. UKIP, is our far right party which main focus is getting rid of immigration, illegal ones and stopping others from entering the country. I believe in that to a degree, I honestly think around the world the vetting process is rather poor. I honestly believe that the world is overpopulated and I don’t think we need a mass of people moving into certain countries. I believe that if you move to another country you may take your cultures and traditions but you must integrate with the population and take on their traditions and cultures. I believe that the religion should not be shown or practiced in public except for churches and temples etc. I just think in the current climate it would be best, this includes wearing anything religious such as crosses. I am an atheist and therefore I found the whole idea of religion as a little bizarre.I just think it would be better if religion was left out of the world, for the time being just until we manage to restore some trust into the rest of the population. Carry on practising but as someone who doesn’t believe in it I don’t like the fact someone is trying to convince me I am wrong the whole time and of course with the issue that the muslim population have at the moment of being branded as terrorist even though most of them are simply lovely. Theses are my views as someone who is slightly right winged.
The left is something I always thought I was because I thought Obama was pretty brilliant granted I just liked his charisma. Which is a little worrying considering that was compared to of that of Hitler’s but let’s not talk about him at the moment. There are a couple of things that I wish Obama had done one of which I have talked about before. I can’t remember the exact quote I used because it was something along the lines of… The african american population are killing each other and if obama had accepted that and said we are killing one another he would have been incredible. He was the first black president and he seemed to have made the gap between the white and the black a lot bigger than it should be. I would also like to talk about cultural appropriation, if i decide to wear a native american costume, do not tell me it is inappropriate unless you are native american. If I decide to wear my hair in dreadlocks you cannot say it is inappropriate because as a white British european I am a descendant of Germanic tribes who were wearing them around 3000bc along with vikings, celts and people from egypt. If i decide to wear a kimonos you cannot say anything unless you are from japan. I am fed up of people saying they are offended for other people’s cultures. if it is not your own culture keep your mouth shut because you are making things a lot worst.
Speaking of those protests, I have no issue if you want to do that I mean it is freedom of speech but as soon as you start physically hurting people and property i have lost all my respect for you. I was okay with listening to the left but shall I tell you with what I am not okay with? hurting a child because he is wearing a MAGA hat. Watch the video here. This kids is getting abuse thrown at him for wearing a hat and believe in his president. He later gets punched and suspended from school because of his view. Now why weren’t these boys and girl suspended? they were in the wrong and that is my issue with the left that no matter what they seem to do they seem to be able to say it is freedom of speech and hurt someone and still get away with it. As soon as you expect that both sides have people who have done bad things the sooner I will less likely to a horrible person.
I get death threats on facebook because of my viewpoints and opinions. Yet I don’t attack people I just say I don’t think that is fair or right for you to be saying all theses things when the left have hurt people because of who they support. Hate me if you want, I really don’t care because please don’t ever lay a hand on anyone no matter what they believe in. Well unless they are trying to kill you, self defense and all that.
I watched Trump’s spontaneous speech yesterday, I actually read it out to two of my housemates, both of them are a lot more left than I but once I read it out they said the words, I do believe he is trying to cover things up but if he does everything he says then at least he is trying to do a lot of good.
A lot of that speech was about fake news, now I have probably talked about this before because it is something I am passionate about because I do believe the media shouldn’t lie, but often it is the lies that make the money. When I read an article I check to see if there are sources, if the words ‘some sources’ are used then i looked for a different article because you need to actually know who says what when it comes to articles. For example I could say, sources tell us that Donald Trump has a green penis, that doesn’t mean it is true. I remember when i did history I would always have the words, “Which sources?” In the margins whenever I used the words “some sources tell us”, you need to actully use infomation that is creditable.
If it isn’t bogus facts, which are fucking up the public perception it is also the fact that they media are telling half truth, the immingration control for one thing. According to the New York Times, around seven hundred people were held by immigration officers over the first fourty eight hours of this immigration control. I have not checked this number but it does seem to have caused the most outrange so I thought I would use it. Now that number is not huge in compassion to the year 2013, it is actually not that bad. On average 1200 people per day were held in dententions in the US, that is nearly double the amount of which happened when this order was implemented. Having gone to a boarding school I know plenty of people who would be questioned when coming back into the country. It may not be fair but they just want to double check those who fit the apperence on those who do wish to harm the population. By all means say that seven hundred people have been unfairly questioned but then also compare it to other infomation, because let me be honest the general population are thick.
I have an IQ of 124, which puts me in the top 91% of the population, I am smarter than the average person but that doesn’t mean that the average person needs to believe everything that is put in front of them. I like to check a lot of the facts that I use because I don’t want to become someone who uses there platform to in theory brainwash people in order to believe what they believe. We have got to be the moment in the time where all our media seems to be very left wing, I don’t actually trust most of the right winged media so I am left somewhere in the middle not wanting to believe bias news and not wanting to believe manipulated news. What can I do? Not a lot.
I don’t have the power to preach to the masses, I may have a few hundred followers on here and on my twitter account and few thousand on my Instagram but they are following me because of my boobs not my blog. I want to make a difference but the only way I can get notice will cause a thousand different people to sent me death threats. I already get enough.
Saying the words I am a white conservative is like wanting people to suddenly hate you. I live in a world where I am allowed to express my opinions and I know not everything I will say people with agree with, I don’t even agree with my parents when it comes to politics. I was against Brexit and I supported Gary Johnson but I have very little issue when it comes to trump. I am not make sense all the time but I am a twenty one year old girl, I don’t even know who I am how can I know how i feel. If i see someone bashing Trump I try and get them to see the good, if I see people bashing Hillary I try and let them see the good she has done. Everyone has a good and a bad side to them and sometimes one is shown more than the other when it comes to the media.
I am a stronger believer than you need to give people a chance to show their true colours. I am the person who thinks the death pentaly should be scrapped. I think prison should be focused on educating people. I think that people who have an attraction to children but do not act on it should be helped and given dolls in hope of helping them with their condition. I believe that people don’t need to say they are transgender and try and change everything about them, I believe they should just wear and act how they want without saying “I am a male born in a female body” I believe that people choose to be offended. Regarding the whole Karrie Kloss thing and her dressing up as someone from Japan, unless you are from that country or have relatives from that country you cannot say you think what she has done is offensive to people of Japan. I have read the comments of a lot of those articles and most of them don’t even care, those who are actually from tha country. A few number of people (Most of which no nothing about Japan or it’s culture) made comments on twitter and studdenly the media starts saying that it is inappropriate.
In that theory white chicks is inappropriate, how dare two black guys dress up and two white blonde girls, that offended me SO much. Just to let know know I don’t care because it is a funny movie. Karlie did a good job showcasing another cultura and she should be praised for letting the fashion industry see that rather than getting bashed by the media due to a few people on twitter saying it is inappropriate, who aren’t even from that country.
My rant now is over, as I can’t be bothered to type anymore, just make sure you check those sources.
Today I spent the day just like I would normally, I got up, I had a shower I did some work and I watch some god awful day time TV. With just minutes until the end of this day I thought I would write this. I hate valentine’s day. Now before loads of people just say you are bitter and single, I do and fact have a boyfriend, he just happens to live on the other side of the country. He sent me a message earlier asking me if I was watching the football and I said no, my housemate is spending time with his needy girlfriend. I know that sounds harsh, I live with two couples, one spent the whole day together the other treated the day just like any other day.
I honestly don’t see the fucking point in the day, if you feel the need to celebrate this so called day, then is your relationship really that good? If you need to throw all your emotions to the person you ‘love’ once a year, why don’t you do it every god damn day.
I grew up in a home that this so called day wasn’t a big deal, sure my parents gave each other a card and my dad brought home flowers but shall I tell you what my dad would randomly buy flowers throughout the year no matter the day.
I wanted to get this out because I honestly don’t get the whole thing about the day, to me it is only there just for companies to make money out of you. It wasn’t until the fourteenth century till Valentines day was even connected to love and romance. I just don’t want to be apart of a holiday which is about nothing more than money. It is not needed, like I said if you love each other you should be showing that every day not on this day.
You should be getting/giving flowers every other week. You should be going out on dates when ever you have time, you should be expressing love through letters and words. Why do you let it all out on this day? because like many people everyone has become so manipulated by the media and by the world that they feel the need to get absorbed in to consumerism.
HAPPY EVERY OTHER DAY
I am twenty one years old and therefore I have no idea who I am, I am not sure if what I think now will be the same in a few months let alone a few years. I often get sent hate on Facebook because of my age that because of it I can’t possible know anythingg that I am in fact thick and clueless. Look I know I come from a privilege background you don’t need to throw that into my face in a way to prove that my point means very little. I would also like to remind those people that in one of my classes, economics to be exact that I was the only person in my class who was English and actually lived in England. My teacher was ex mitary. There were two Russians in my class, one America, two people from China but lived in Hong Kong and another English person who lived in Dubai. Lastly a third English person who lived in France. So my class was made up of people from the four most powerful countries in the world and although i failed the class what I learnt from it still sticks to me today. I learnt about different countries, I learnt about how it doesnt matter where you are from or what colour your skin is we are all human. We had huge conversation about Russia and how in theory communism was a good thing. How that niether America or China can ask for their debts back without going under themselves. That if America and China did go under that England and Russia would be the power of the world in terms of finances anyway, which is pretty damn important.
Those who follow my blog posts will know that i agree with 65% of Trumps politics, one thing I would like to add is that you do not have to like someone to agree with their politics. I agre with Hillary 43% and Gary Johnson 68% of the time. As you can tell I am central but leaning right. What people seem to get confused is you don’t have to like the person to like their politics.
I think Trump is a dick but I seem to spent a lot of my time denfending him, I personally think he will be impeached but at the moment I have no issue with him in terms of politics. I am going to link to two videos which are a little right leading, one is from a member of the US Miltary based in Iraq and the other is a conversation between a liberal and a conservative.
The first one is a conversation between a liberal and a conservative,
I have a lot of respect to Milo and although he is a little too right for me a lot of what he says makes sense and it is always good when a brit manages to get their point across. I like this video because it is not a normal conversation you would expect to see. I am all for fight for rights but dont fight for people when you know nothing about them. I like the quote which is something like this, If Obama said we are killing each other and said we have a problem in the African American community he would have been phenomenal, or something a long those lines. That is a quote from a black guy, not me so dont you dare send me hate, he has a lot of good points and all those people who are trying to protesting for black lives matter, watch this. Watch what your own man is saying, he is taking responsibility for his own actions and I am so sick of everyone trying to blame everyone else.
Next video is about the travel ban, before this video is played I would like to add that in 2013 around 441,000 people were detained in the USA. One of my friends was one of that number, he is British born and raised but he doesn’t look British if that makes any sense. Anyway that number average at around 1200 a day. Now Trump said 107 people were detained, then the numbers got pushed up to 200+ and then New York post posted number of around 700, all those numbers were less than the average in 2013 when Obama was president yet not one single person seemed to be protesting back then hen it was the average person. Yet because Trump openly target seven countries where he is going to be doing extra checks. Talking of my British friend he quite often gets detained when coming back into England as did a few of my friends from school. Yes it is slightly rainiest that they tend to target middle eastern loooking people but they are trying to stop terrioists which yes make up a small group of people but as this video shows the normal person in Iraq would kill the average America, why would that change just because they are in a different country?
Hope you like my post and here I was thinking I was going to be writing about fashion and shite, anyway hope you like.
To be fair I wasn’t going to move this over from my other blog because frankly I wanted to review things which weren’t really well known, but then again I thought it would be a waste not to move i over and frankly as you guys probably have notice I have a huge obsession with Harry Potter so I felt like this needs to be on here wheather it is popular or not.
As you know or you don’t, Harry Potter it was the first book series I wanted to read, you see I suffer from dyslexia and I also have his thing that I should try anything that I know I am going to fail at, enter this thing called reading. When I first got into the Harry Potter series my mum use to read them to me, she did this up to the fifth book. I also had the audio books and I use to follow the words. It takes me about thirty minutes to read the first Harry Potter because of the audio books having in away brainwashed me over the years and I can simply scan the books without really looking and I know the words.
The reason I am saying all this is because my dream is to be a film producer (the ones who cast and get all the funding for the film. My parents are both accountants and they always joke about how even though I am determined not to follow there route I still what a job where I have to deal with budgets) I didn’t watch the first or the seven film in the cinema no idea why I just know I didn’t. Harry Potter made me interested in the making of a film, the behind the scenes aspects. I’ve probably watched the special features as many times as the films them selves so to say the least I was really excited for an eighth Harry Potter book.
The good thing about this, is for people like me who struggle with reading having it in play format is perfect it makes it easier to read each word rather than having a blurry mess of words which the other Harry Potter books have caused. I have studied Drama in the past so I am use to this sort of format, my brother no so much. It annoyed him a little he is far more academic than I am, he actually enjoys reading and although he has done a bit of acting in the past, but he is not use to this format. I do agree this story lacked the detail that it needed, the reason Shakespeare works so well is because it is beautifully written and has plenty of detail. This script lacked it and due to a thin story it doesn’t come across as well. Then again I shouldn’t really compared one of the greatest writers to Harry Potter but then I can be a drama snob. Well I can be a snob full stop.
The next bit contains spoilers. There are parts of this story really well planned out, the friendship between Albus, and Scorpio is probably a better friendship than the original trio. Although I understand Ron and Hermione fighting all the time, that does tend to happen to people who are trying to remain friends but clearly like each other. Most of the time it was over being jealous of someone. That being said Harry and Ron’s friendship annoys me at two points, the first being Ron spends weeks hating Harry for thinking that he put his name in the goblet of fire, yet he believe Harry at once for Voldemort return and he walks away from Harry and Hermione in the last book. He also believes Harry is not the heir of Slytherin. Those three things I think are all related and well Ron does one, then he does the opposite, then he goes back again. If they were really best friends then I doubt it would be so all over the place. It might have been jealously though. See that was the redeeming quality of this book the bad points are long.
The whole concept of the time thing just seemed really pointless and also broke rules which JK Rowling had already set out. The Time Turner doesn’t change time because after all it has already happened. If that makes sense Harry even says that in the third book. So these two boys go back and change the past which has broken one of the main rules that were already set out. It’s really annoyed me and thus made the whole book more like a bad fan fiction. The whole Voldemort having a daughter just seemed cliché as fuck.
There were nice moments sure, but you have that even in the pile of crap of Fifty shades of grey (which let’s be honest is a book about stalking) the plot was weak and almost needed the detail which the books have, maybe just maybe it would have been decent then rather than wtf is happening. Anyway it’s poor in harry potter terms but better than some of the crap theses days so gets a 3/5
I originally gave this a two but I think that was just the incail shock about how bad it was frankly it is not bad, it is simply average in my opinon.
