I saw this while loitering in a bookshop and found myself getting all choked up within the first few pages. Bought the Kindle edition. What I thought would be a page turner started to become a but less so as a rather large number of characters were quickly introduced. The middle became a bit of a slog as Rowling's players developed, but in the last half of the book it all starts to come roaring, intensely, painfully, tearfully together. Rowling's story, this town, the people are all familiar to us. We know some, like some, hate some, and, worst of all, turn away from some anr turn them away in their need.
If you're looking for a happy ending, all loose ends tied up nicely at the last, look elsewhere. If you want a good thoughtful, sometimes gritty story, grab a box of tissues amd start reading.
