J.K. Rowling never disappoints with her story writing. And The Casual Vacancy is just as amazing as the Harry Potter series. As her first adult book, she chose to write about things that other authors shy away from. Finishing this book for the second time I still was left with a lingering sense of loss and sadness for the characters. The story is so well written that you get attached to certain people and start to dislike/hate other people. I hope you decide to pick this book up and give it a try. But you have to remember that this is an adult book, not a Harry Potter book. So don't expect it to be something its not.
I hope you enjoy the book if you read it.
