The title says it all: Barry Trotter and the Unnecessary Sequel is Michael Gerber's needless follow-up to Barry Trotter and the Shameless Parody. Who needs a second raucous spoof of Harry Potter? Ask Mr Gerber's publishers and bank manager...
Boy wizard Barry Trotter is now 38 and long married to his over-achieving schoolmate Ermine. With serious hairline problems and two kids (Nigel and Fiona), he's grown quite chummy with his old nemesis Lord Valumart, and is a far cry from the idealised Barry in bestsellers by "JG Rollins":
Not that Barry was a bad fellow--he was always ready to tell a fictitious story, dispense bad advice or lend an inexpert hand. It's just that he was sort of a loose cannon. A very loose, very, very big cannon that fired nuclear-tipped artillery shells. Into heavily populated areas. At dinner time.Now it's young Nigel's turn to endure "The Obligatory Train-Platform Chapter" and become a first-year pupil at the famous wizarding school Hogwash, while his parents tag along for the old students' reunion. Gerber has fun sending up the lake journey, the banquet, the Sorting (sorry, Picking) Hat and other familiar props.
When the current Headmaster comes to a very messy end, it has to be foul play, probably by the author. Barry unwisely takes over as interim head, while Nigel suffers squalid agonies at the bottom of the Hogwash pecking order. The mystery grows deeper, also ruder and grosser, as Barry himself is cursed with "youthanasia"--doomed to become forever younger until he painfully implodes into nothingness. A badly disguised "stranger" on the Hogwash staff is evidently implicated, but as usual our chums are too busy suspecting Professor Snipe...
The farrago lurches onward until, at last: "This is the part in the book where the villain explains his plan!" En route, Unnecessary Sequel offers more sleaze, innuendo, cheap shots, bad taste and bodily fluids than you could shake a broomstick at. If you enjoyed what Bored of the Rings did to Tolkien, you'll enjoy this as outrageous, irreverent fun. --David Langford
Barry Trotter saved the Hogwash school for Wizards from the unwelcome attentions of Hollywood in BARRY TROTTER AND THE SHAMELESS PARODY. But things move on. Barry and Ermine Cringer have got married and have had two relatively delightful children. Their eldest is a skilled magician. But the youngest doesn't seem to possess any ability at all. Have Barry and Ermine given birth to a Muddle? Maybe magic isn't everything after all ...Alle Produktbeschreibungen
I'm not really a HP fan (that's why I got interested in the first place), but HP is at least well written.
In short, I'm disappointed and wouldn't recommend it to any of my friends (and wouldn't even consider it as a gift for someone I don't really like).
I warmly recommend this book to you!! It's ideal for the whole family, even your grand-parents won't be able to stop reading!
So now: Buy this book and enjoy it!!!! :-)

I defninitely recomend this book.
This book has all the strengths of the first "Barry Trotter" installment, and none of the flaws. Where the first book had an unsatisfying ending (by revealing that "it was all just a movie"), this book ignores the unsatisfying ending of the last book, and just continues the adventure as if nothing had interrupted it.
What's also great about this book is that it feels more like its own story. The first book, "Barry Trotter and the Unauthorized/Shameless Parody," was set after the Hogwash days (meaning that it wouldn't be the kind of parody that followed the real "Harry Potter" series by the letter); but it still revolved very much around the real "Harry Potter" series, with Barry and friends rushing to stop the Hollywood movie. In the "Unnecessary Sequel" however, the story has very little to do with spoofing the events of "Harry Potter," and instead pokes fun at the entire concept of Hogwarts and the wizarding world in general.
If you love "Harry Potter," and cartoonish, "low-brow" humor, you must give this book a chance.
