This is my (semi-)monthly repost. This review was originally published in 2015.
Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality (HPMOR) is one of the best-known pieces of fanfiction ever written, meaning it was even read by people like me, who otherwise despise fanfic. This is my (spoiler-free) review.
I should begin with the caveat that I hardly remember most of HPMOR. Like much of internet fiction, it has updated very slowly over a long period of time. I started reading HPMOR over three years ago, and I know because there’s something in my blog archives about it. Frankly it would have been better suited to reading over a short period of time rather than a period of years. But this is hardly relevant now, because the fanfic has now been completed and you can read it at your leisure.
