The new book of Harry Potter writer receives the first reviews
September 26, 2012
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling lunches her new book, of the hit and generally received good reviews.
The new book titled “The Casual Vacancy” has nothing to do with the supernatural adventures of the little wizard with glasses, but it is a novel with characters earthly, real situations that can occur anywhere in the world, as it was published in ‘Hollywood Reporter’.
The newspaper added that “If Harry Potter fans are expecting something similar will find a big surprise.”
‘Associated Press’ said: “This is a hard story where some people can not be saved simply because never really had a chance. It’s full of unfriendly people which often cross the line into some terrible. Everyone is unhappy in one way or another, can be critical, petty, violent … Some are damaged beyond repair. But what could have been a garbled story becomes in the hands of Rowling thanks to his gift of making her characters complex and very human.”
The harshest criticism was for New York Daily News, saying: “Sorry, we do not agree with the prediction of a bookseller who said it would be the best novel of the year. This book is not terrible, but it’s just boring.”
