The Casual Vacancy

Yep, I'm reading it. The Casual Vacancy. J.K. Rowling's new book. I imagine I'll have a whole post about it when I'm done, but right now all I'm gonna say is...

Dobby, I don't think we're in Hogwarts anymore.

Naturally I'm pulling my Teaser Tuesday (hosted by Miz B from Should Be Reading) from this book. So without further adieu...

She could still see Howard and Maureen behind the counter, the one immense, the other scrawny, and in her mind's eye they were looking down at her from a height as they told her that her friend was dead. With an almost welcome gush of fury and hatred she thought, They're glad. They think they'll win now. (page 40)

Have you read The Casual Vacancy? I'm interested to hear others' thoughts on it.

  4. Thanks for the teaser, haven't read this one either.


  5. Haven't read it--I've gathered, however, that it doesn't quite have the same roller coaster must-read-all-in-one-night-NOW plotting that HP did.

    But. I haven't read it yet, so what I just said could be totally wrong.

    Even if it's true, I can see why Rowling would take a more literary pace in a different genre, and I'm glad to hear some of what I love about her writing in your quote. :)

  6. It's on my TBR list, looking forward to your review post :)
