The original title of the book: Barry Trotter And The Unnecessary Sequel (GOLLANCZ S.F.)

Barry Trotter saved the Hogwash school for Wizards from the unwelcome attentions of Hollywood in BARRY TROTTER AND THE SHAMELESS PARODY. But things move on. Barry and Ermine Cringer have got married and have had two relatively delightful children. Their eldest is a skilled magician. But the youngest doesn't seem to possess any ability at all. Have Barry and Ermine given birth to a Muddle? Maybe magic isn't everything after all . . .

The title says it all: Barry Trotter and the Unnecessary Sequel is Michael Gerber's needless follow-up to Barry Trotter and the Shameless Parody. Who needs a second raucous spoof of Harry Potter? Ask Mr Gerber's publishers and bank manager...

    I enjoyed this book immensely but it's not as good as "Barry Trotter and The Shameless Parody" which I found far funnier. Maybe it's because I knew more what to expect. One word of warning: Do not read this book without having read at least one of the Harry Potter books otherwise you won't understand a lot of the jokes.

    I bought this book with high expectations because I loved the first book and I wasn't disappointed. The book is set 11 years after the first book and Barry now has a wife , Ermine Cringer (Who would of thought it?, and 2 children Nigel, 11 and Fiona, 3.Whilst Fi has the magic tough Nigel is practically a Muddle but Barry being the big-head he is bungs Nigel on the Hogwash Depress and off the Hogwash School of Wizardry and Witchcrap and the chaos begins. Dorco is now the Headmister but dies (yet again) after a tragic accident and Barry and Ermine are appointed as Headmister and Headmistress much to the dismay of Snipe and Mumblemumble (the new Dork arts and craft professor).I won't tell you anymore (buy the book) but they are LOTR references and much more of Immortal the mouse, Timothy. The writing is witty and pokes fun at whatever was left from the first book (except for OotP because it was wrote before its release)Altogether a good book and an enjoyable read.

    I found this in a charity shop for a couple of quid and decided it would be worth a try. It laid gathering dust on a bookshelf until a few nights ago.I read a few pages as I was bored, then suddenly realised that I just HAD to read on! One may think that mocking a book as large as Harry Potter would be disastrous at its best, but Michael succeeds with such ease. Extended jokes are plentiful and almost never end in an anti-climax. A plot is shown throughout despite the blatant temptation for the author to stray off topic, with a few various things occurring around it. It is very funny and additionally very absorbing and is certainly worth a read.Credit to J.K Rowling for allowing these types of parodies to be published though.

    Brilliant story, very clever use of spoofing on the part of the Author. His parodies are such that even though they rip the hell out of the real stories, they never seem dull.Infact these parodies are possibly as far from the original as possible while keeping the ideas and imagery similar but in new ways without seeming cack.Fantastically read by voice actor Chrisopher Cazenove (Zulu Dawn, Knight's Tale) who is sadly no longer with us.His protrayals of the parodied characters are fresh, innovative and down right hilarious as they are supposed to be.Well done to Mike Gerber, keep it up and write some more!

    A pretty disappointing affair considering the comical scope the writer had and he definitely didn’t use it to the best of his ability. The story line is weak throughout and in honesty short on laughs, while highlighting a writer who continually tries to be too clever. There is the odd moment that’s fairly comical but I thinks it’s a case of someone making a lot of money on the back of J.K. Rowling.

    a bit silly but silly enough to laugh at bought these in my early adulthood and still read them once in a while

  • By Waltzer on 17 December 2013

    Read the first few pages, definitely not for me! I didn't find it funny or absorbing, a total waste of effort.

    In pretty good condition and completes the trilogy for my friend, who has the other two books.
