I read it about 2 years ago.... And I got a headache after the first 10 chapters lol.

I think it was because Harry was so OOC.... And the voice I associated with him in my head I just found irritating

I saw "fan fiction of Harry Potter" and decided I was not going to read it no matter what.

I have, one of the most important readings, too. It teaches you or rather introduces you to advanced rationality. It is written by a child prodigy in mathematics who is now affiliated with academic studies on artificial intelligence and advanced rationality. Every month or so, a new chapter is released, so there were new chapters after the ones I read, but I'm waiting for them to stack up before I read them.

It's a beautiful book and a must-read.

That's rather silly of you. This book is not meant to replace what Rowling said, but teach a good portion of Advanced Rationality and Modern Philosophy in a simplified and creative way. This really was one of the best books I've ever read, and I hate it when superficial people go for the "but it's fan-fiction" nonsense.
