    Like most of his stories it's interesting, but just feels too short.
    It occupies this weird space where it's not quite a one shot but not quite a full story.

    It was a fun ride, but I'm left saying "That's it?" It's a fun first year rehash, but it's still a first year rehash.

    4/5

    Whaa. . ? It's over?

    Man, I was hoping for a lazy!Harry Hogwarts epic that I could look forward to for months. Then again, I see that BajaB hasn't done that type of story in over three years, so I shouldn't be surprised.

    Well, it was fun while it lasted.

    4/5

    I enjoyed this a lot, and I would read a sequel if it ever came out. 4.25/5

    I'm with the 'I'd read a sequel' group this time. I've enjoyed this story and looked forward to its updates to the point where I actually let out a NNNOOOOOOOOOO when it finished.

    4/5

    Pers has it right on the money. 4/5.

    The even chapters were great. The odds weren't as enjoyable, but overall it was a good read with some truly amusing moments. I'm disappointed it's over already but it is better for it not to come to the point where it's old. Like Pers said, hopefully the odd omake covering other moments in the series could be written in the future if Baja gets some inspiration. Definitely belongs in the Library.

    Pft. I'd say it's a 5/5 for me. Well done, and made me laugh a few times.

    4/5. It's good for a laugh and it’s a fanfic I would be happy to read again. I'm just wishing it was longer. <O:p</O:p

    This was quite interesting. I liked the idea overall and I was assuming that he was going to do a full seven year like he did with Almost a Squib, but I don't think it would have been possible to drag the story that long and still make it a fun read.

    I am not particularly fond of canon rehashes but I rather liked this one, perhaps because the focus was not on the plot, which was very thin but on Harry's extreme take on laziness. I really liked all the stuff BajaB came up with to demonstrate Harry's attitude. It was very interesting how the author showed Harry's increasing competence and creativeness as Harry sought a more leisurely life.

    It was fun reading the story. I will give it a 4/5, one of BajaB's better stories.

    Solid 4/5 -- I enjoyed reading it. Whatever it may be I think it's definitely what the author set out to write judging by the note at the end of the last chapter.

    Very light-hearted and not at all serious, but what might have been a flaw in another story is just part of the point of this one, I think.

    I found the end rather... dull. Not sure if its the mood I was in while reading it, but only the 2nd chapter really resonated with me. It's worth the recycling bin, I guess. 3/5.

    I agree with rand32085 it feels the same for me. I'm sure with a little work and imagination it could be made in to a decent sized fic. But the omake type of writing appeals me better, for a Lazy!Harry it is especially hard to write a decent antagonist, because by his nature only hard work is his enemy.

    Fun fic to read, only just want to see how lazy Harry would deal with Umbridge and her blood quill and the rest of the books

    4.5/5

    4/5. It was fun while it lasted, and I was sad to see it end, but then I thought that if he were to drag it out, it'd probably get boring after a while. So yeah, it's better that it ended now.

    Really enjoyable fic. The way Harry creates new stuff is cool.....His vision in the Mirror of Erised is my life's ambition...

    The description of Harry as a lazy person is not at all reliable.

    Really, bro?
    But, he's right I suppose. Hufflepuff 2 is so far a pretty lighthearted read and no less enjoyable than its predecessor.

    Could a mod update the first post to contain the new link?
