Stephen King Slams Twilight And Fifty Shades But Has Love For Harry Potter

Kayleigh Falvey Staff Writer

Stephen King has praised JK Rowling and called Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga “tweenager porn”, in a recent interview with The Guardian. King told The Guardian that the series is, “really not about vampires and werewolves. They’re about how the love of a girl can turn a bad boy good. I read Twilight and didn’t feel any urge to go on with her. I read The Hunger Games and didn’t feel an urge to go on. It’s not unlike The Running Man, which is about a game where people are actually killed and people are watching: a satire on reality TV.” King also described Harry Potter author JK Rowling as a “wonderful storyteller”. “The writing is better than in any of the Harry Potter books, because it’s sharper.” The author also praised Rowling’s 2012 novel The Casual Vacancy saying, “It’s f**king nasty. And I love it. The centre of the book is a dinner party from hell and you say to yourself, ‘These little people in the town of Pagford are a microcosm not just of British society, but western society as a whole, of a certain class.’ The fact that she set it around this little election that nobody cares about in a sh**t little town is fabulous.” The author, who is set to release his 56th novel, also revealed that he has read best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey. King said, “I read Fifty Shades of Grey and felt no urge to go on. They call it mommy porn, but it’s not really mommy porn. It is highly charged, sexually driven fiction for women who are, say, between 18 and 25. But a golden age of horror? I wouldn’t say it is. I can’t think of any books right now that would be comparable to The Exorcist.” Stephen King’s 56th novel Dr. Sleep is released today (24th September) by Hodder & Stoughton. http://www.Twitter.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.tumblr.com http://www.SoundCloud.com/PopWrapped http://www.Facebook.com/PopWrapped http://www.Instagram.com/PopWrapped http://www.Pinterest.com/PopWrapped http://www.YouTube.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.wordpress.com http://www.PopWrapped.com
