Frank Campbell begins his review of Michael Chabon's Gentlemen of the Road rather elegantly in this morning's Weekend Australian/Review:
Harry Potter, that vast liquid cyst bloating the belly of literature like a mock pregnancy, invites misconceived admiration. If it's a real Quest you be wanting, me hearties, and not a sac of diluted Tolkien and Blyton, try Michael Chabon.

Nice metaphor! Kind of reminds me of the wonderful China Mieville calling Tolkien "a wen on the arse of fantasy literature."
