As a die-hard Harry Potter fan, I was very excited to hear that J.K. Rowling was released a new book, this time for adults!
Now, the publisher has annouced that the title will be The Casual Vacancy and is going to be released worldwide on the 27th September! I’m so looking forward to it!
We even got a plot summary from Little, Brown:
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.
And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?
Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.
I’m very torn about Rowling releasing a new book, as I know it will never be able to live up to people’s expectations, but I can’t help being excited about it as well! If she can write children’s books that swallow adults all over the world whole, what will her adult books be like?
