The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Rowling really tapped into personal types of experience in this novel, whether they belonged to her or not, they were vivid and completely believable. I think her ability to create such credible points of view is what made the Harry Potter series so very good, her characters a very close to real, in that we might all know someone like them.
While I enjoyed reading this book, I can understand how slower readers might never gather any momentum with it. I do think it is worthwhile. It is very slice-of-life (chunk, more like). Very human. I can't wait to see what she does next.
