I am reading "Casual Vacancy" by J.K Rowling. I was not one of those who loved her Harry Potter books, however I did enjoy reading the way in which she crafted her stories. When I learnt that "cobble stone paths" and "villages" featured in her new book, I decided to get a copy. The story is a lot harsher than lovely English village life and would not usually be my kind of book, as I read to enjoy a happy escape into loveliness... but I am intrigued and will finish the book. She has pulled together many characters effortlessly and I think that she was very brave to branch away from Harry Potter.
This book won't keep me up as late as my last book did: 6pm to 6am the following morning!
