    The Ickabog is a fairy tale set in an imaginary land which JK Rowling says is ‘about truth and the abuse of power’How dare she claim to write a book about truth and the abuse of power when she is abusing her influence and power to spread hate and liesAnd while I highly doubt there is anything explicitly obviously hateful contained within the pages of this book things slip in whether consciously or unconsciously and I think that is very dangerousThis whole issue with Rowling's transphobia is very nuanced and complicated Here are some links you may find helpful➵ What JK Rowling has done➵ Does JK Rowling's Transphobia Ruin Harry Potter?➵ Is JK Rowling Transphobic?➵ Is JK Rowling a Transphobe? Trans guy reacts➵ The Science of the Transgender Issue VS the Pseudoscience Surrounding Gender and BiologyI will never condone hatred or condone attacking authors nor is that what I am intending to do here But JK Rowling's hate and hypocrisy must be recognizedIf you need someone Please click here to find other hotlines | Goodreads | Blog | Pinterest | LinkedIn | YouTube | Instagram

    Yeah on reflection I’m not going to be able to keep reading this The author keeps doubling down on transphobic rhetoric that’s harmful and I can’t in good conscience enjoy a lighthearted children’s story in that context

    Oh My Sweet Jesus She's written another


  4. Rheanna Rheanna says:

    Welcome to CornucopiaBeing uarantined sucks but with the ueen for Magic telling a serialized story for 7 weeks is sure something to make you hold onFirst Chapter makes you travel without the precautions of no travelling in the Corona Times to Cronucopia with a beautifully describing for this fictional country and its citiesSecond Chapter is where we learn about the Legend of the Ickabog


  7. Daniel Daniel says:

    It is not a bad book but it is written by a transphobic author so I advise you not to read this bookNot support this personAnd don't forget trans women are women


  8. Samia Samia says:

    I’m currently on chapter 20 and while I usually refrain from rating a book till I’ve finished it “The Ickabog” really is that good despite being a fairytale aimed for younger children it has not failed to capture my imagination I loved the detailed and fascinating descriptions of the Kingdom of Cornucopia as well as the flaws in the characters which are portrayed as though through the eyes of a child I love how simplistic and no nonsense the plot is yet it’s so twisted that it keeps you guessing what could happen next The building of the story has been phenomenal so far Enjoying it thoroughly


  9. Tatevik Najaryan Tatevik Najaryan says:

    I don't even know what would be my response for readers who rate the book without reading it and just saying that they started to hate Rowling for her behaviour I didn't read the latest news about her as I didn't want anything to have even a little influence on my feelings towards the writer who created my escape world I love her as an author not because of HP but for being the contemporary author I read no matter it's crime fiction or children's literatureThis book was a little surprise and kind of appetizer before Strike #5 is out It's a good story I don't think I would be that captured if I were 10 11 it seemed a little long for that ageNo matter what I enjoyed it immensely


  10. Siwa Siwa says:

    I all ready know that this is a new bestseller in making The Ickabog captured me right from the first sentence just as all J K Rowling’s books have the tendency to do
