Move Over Harry Potter: JK Rowling Has An Adult Novel

And many Harry Potter fans will say that they are adult enough. Well, Harry (and Hermione) certainly growed in the course of their saga. And the books were favourites of millions of adult readers. But, this new novel, The Casual Vacancy (which is, by the way, a great title), is aimed at (and certainly sounds for) adults.

The Casual Vacancy

When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.

Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.

Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils...Pagford is not what it first seems.
