An accurate simile I suppose. Here, Taylor has sited the popular book and film series penned by J.K. Rowling, and juxtaposed a recurring character and theme against his / her exam revision trials and tribulations.
Some people are bitter. Like how most people in the world hate Twilight. But Harry Potter is a classic, whether you hate it or not. Twilight… not so much. But my point remains, lol. I liked it when I was younger, and I still appreciate it now, even though I haven’t read the last 4, or seen the last 4 movies. I dunno, I guess I will always respect J.K. Rowling and the series C:
“A classic stands the test of time. The work is usually considered to be a representation of the period in which it was written; and the work merits lasting recognition. In other words, if the book was published in the recent past, the work is not a classic.”
I guess I see the term classic differently. It’s respected worldwide, and translated into a large number of languages, and has won countless awards. To me, that’s classic. I guess I should have clarified, my bad!
