A Casual Vacancy: Review


Oh, J.K. Rowling, you really know how to get me.

Let’s be real here… I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan. They’ve helped me through many very difficult parts of my life including depression, moving, lack of friends, high school, my parents separating, college. I owe a lot of my successes and hanging on to Rowling and her characters.

That being said, this novel is a completely different beast in and of itself. Please read it as such. I happen to really love Rowling’s writing, she captures her characters under such a real light that I can’t help but be entranced and drawn in. And the subject matter is politics, so it really takes a good writer to keep me interested!

Don’t let my Rowling love deter you, though… the novel is a really incredible account of how one man’s death can affect an entire town. It’s worth checking out if you’re looking for your next novel!
