It’s not Potter.

So as we all know J K Rowling has brought out a new book to be released at the end of the month. It has been long awaited and reviews will definitely be varied. The Casual Vacancy is Rowling’s first foray into the word of writing for adults and it has been rumored that she is trying to move as far away from ‘Harry Potter’ as she can. Personally I think that is a bad move as it’s Mr Potter who has made her what she is today.

I still don’t know whether I am going to read the book. I think I probably will because I do like to have an opinion and I will then be able to see which reviewers are just jumping on the ‘I Hate JK’ bandwagon.

In the meantime here the first review you will probably read and to be honest it is not bad.

Oh PS – I’m VERY disappointed in the cover. It’s horrible and boring and even though you shouldn’t judge a book etc etc it doesn’t inspire me in the slightest.

  • I don’t know why she didn’t write it in a slightly different name to stop children wanting to read it. Even if she only changed to it Jo Rowling. She could have still publicised it, just not on the cover, as her book and pen name.

  • Tell me what you think
