Stephen King has stated more than once his enthusiasm for the Harry Potter series. My daughter LOVES the Twilight books. But, apparently, Mr. King sees it different. King, in a Febuary 2, 2009 interview with Lorrie Lynch in USA Weekend, stated: "The real difference is that JK Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good."
While that seems to have created a small fire-storm among Meyer's supporters, it is nice to know what someone actually thinks! King doesn't lie about his opinions, which means when he says he liked something ou can trust that he actually likes it.
