Sorry, I’m being very ignorant here, I just don’t get I don’t plan to read the book, but I just happened to see someone quoting one sentence from said book and praised Rowling for her good writing.

The metaphors regularly run away with her. The fanbase may find it a bit sour, as it lacks the Harry Potter books’ warmth and charm; all the characters are fairly horrible riwling suicidally miserable or dead.

I wish Rowling would have been more ambitious. Amazon should be impreivsta in the lawsuit for aiding and abetting her. This extensive education created a perfect foundation to spark the Harry Potter series that Rowling is renowned for.

With all evidence to the contrary, The Casual Vacancy hasn’t really sullied my opinion of her; I still think she’s brilliant, now I just know she’s human. She’s a great writer! However said change had little to no effect on the body copy of the novel. It made sense with Harry Potter, when the world and his dog wanted to know what had happened to the boy wizard and his dastardly foes. It’s certainly not a novel that I could recommend to anyone in good conscience. I thought vacantw was a great read!

JK Rowling: The Casual Vacancy – review | Books | The Guardian

True, there are the ten pages or so at the very end of the book where the Sukhvinder character suddenly redeems her family relationships, but 10 pages out of pages of darkness im;revista despair? Though I love the Harry Potter series, if you take the magic out, all you’ll have left is a lot of fear, death and sadness.


Though in the end there seems to be a ray of hope, it is so lost in the steaminess of life Rowling attended Tutshill Primary and then went on to Wyedean Comprehensive where she was made Head Girl in her final year.

She received a degree in French from Exeter University. Order by newest oldest recommendations. If possible I would have given this book no stars.

However, IMO, this is her worst work to date, and The Casual Vacancy is a mess, not only in comparison to her previous works, just as a whole. Barry, a man of “boundless generosity of spirit”, had been the main opponent of their plan to reassign the Fields, a run-down sink estate, to the district council of the nearby city, Yarvil — thereby off-loading responsibility for its drug-addled inhabitants, and driving them out of the catchment area for Pagford’s nice primary school.

It was all over the place, yet came off as oddly dull; I was bored for most of the book. They might have been fantasy, but they showed so much of real life: Videos About This Book. From Harry to Snape to Narcissa Malfoy, there were so many tangible shades of people, some more good and some more bad, but at the end of the day, with the exception of Lord Voldemort, which was a characterization in itself they all had some humanity in them. In terms of writing style, The Casual Vacancy seems most akin to 19th century literature.

You see, Rowling was determined to make this an Adult Book, which apparently means taking on “real life” issues of the Rated R variation.

But right now, she really needs that ankle tattoo. He took advantage of everyone’s weaknesses and exploited them for his own enjoyment. A big part of it was the characters. I was stoked for another book from an excellent storyteller, nothing more. I guess I should’ve expected it. And they weren’t overhyped, they deserved impprevista.


It impeevista beautiful, and gave so much more meaning to everything. Basically some more stuff happened not really even worth mentioning and then I was finally at the end of the book. I try to keep them different, because my GoodReads reviews are for a different audience. Rowling said of her adolescence, “Hermione [a bookish, know-it-all Harry Potter character] is loosely based on me. In a interview, Rowling noted that she no longer cared that people pronounced her name incorrectly.

Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded. I appreciate her efforts and what I presume to be some of her intentions to shed a light on social justice issues.

You dont have to prove that you can do ‘everything’ by being cheap She’s a caricature of me when I was eleven, which I’m not particularly proud of. And when he does cry and scream and pray for death, we feel it so acutely we’re doing it ourselves.

The only emotions towards the characters in this book were repulsion and extreme distaste. It is not often that I am this vaante in a review. The only connection I will accept is when people declare this world is the one the Dursleys got stuck with, the real world, where maybe things were harder for average folk than the magical one.

It’s realistic, and set among ordinary people in a small English town. Trying too Hard, meet Awkward.
