Remember when books were full of information? They would teach people or provide interesting commentary, insight and ideas? Short of that they were a way to escape into another world. Unfortunately I now want to escape into another world because of a book and that is NOT a good thing. It’s because I do not want to be in a world in which this is an actual book. This thing was published. It’s on the site of a world-known bookseller. Even if it’s only in an online format. AKYL, literature.
Twilight was bad enough. The fact that I even have to italicize its name because it really is a published best-seller should make humanity weep. A book that teaches young girls that if the guy they like leaves them they should go into a catatonic state of whininess and cease to exist until the guy comes back? I’m all for having less annoying people in the world but essentially giving up on your life because a sparkly vampire is no longer in it is almost as ridiculous as this hair “book.” Can we call this a book? This is a collection of poems and letters which includes an homage to Justin Bieber’s hair. This is not a joke. However, the lives of anybody who reads it and the lives of the people who wrote it most definitely are. There are no words. There are no words that can express how I feel about the fact that this is happening aside from ‘crucio’ and ‘avada kedavra.’ This is the future of literature, world. Somewhere, in a stately castle on the British countryside, JK Rowling is weeping. AKYL.
This was sent to me by Horen. I sincerely hope Horen did not get this book. If you have an AKYL to submit email firstname.lastname@example.org. Judgement is free…. for now.
