Review

Praise for THE CASUAL VACANCY:

"A positively propulsive read."-- Wall Street Journal

"I had come under the spell of a great novel....A big, ambitious, brilliant, profane, funny, deeply upsetting and magnificently eloquent novel of contemporary England, rich with literary intelligence....This is a deeply moving book by somebody who understands both human beings and novels very, very deeply." Lev Grossman, "Time""

"A vivid read with great, memorable characters and a truly emotional payoff....Rowling captures the humanity in everyone, even if that humanity is not always a pretty sight." "People"""

"This book represents a truckload of shrewdness.... There were sentences I underlined for the sheer purpose of figuring out how English words could be combined so delightfully....genuinely moving." "Washington Post""

"A positively propulsive read." "Wall Street Journal""

"An insanely compelling page-turner....The Casual Vacancy" is a comedy, but a comedy of the blackest sort, etched with acid and drawn with pitch....Rowling proves ever dexterous at launching multiple plot lines that roar along simultaneously, never entangling them except when she means to. She did not become the world's bestselling author by accident. She knows down in her bones how to make you keep turning the pages." "The Daily Beast""

"Rowling knows how to write a twisty, involving plot....She is clearly a skilled writer." "The Huffington Post""

"The Casual Vacancy" is a complete joy to read....a stunning, brilliant, outrageously gripping and entertaining evocation of British society today." "The Mirror" (UK)""

"Rowling has written a grand novel...a very brave book." "The Bookseller" (UK)""

Book Description
