04 Feb Stephen King: Rowling Rocks, Meyer is Teh Lame
Yet another in a long line of comparisons between the two best-selling authors JK Rowling (Harry Potter-do I even have to mention?) and Stephenie Meyer (Twilight). The fact that they share little more in common than reproductive organs and fat bank accounts matters not. Someone, somewhere decreed from on high that the world must be divided between Potterheads and Twi-hards, and lo it came to be. So pick sides, if you haven’t already. But choose wisely.
If it helps, Stephen King says in a USA Today interview, “The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.”
Oh, yeah, and Rowling was just made a knight of the Legion of Honor Tuesday by French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
