The Casual Vacancy – J.K Rowling’s New Book for Adults

jkrowA few weeks back we got to know that the author of Harry Potter is aiming at adult readers for her upcoming novel. Now her publisher — Little Brown U.K — has revealed the title, release date, and the subject of the book. The Casual Vacancy, which is possibly the most anticipated book of 2012, will be released on September 27th. This time Rowling deals with small town politics and focuses on passion, hypocrisy, and surprising twists.

Rowling’s editor Neill Denny is exited. “This is not a traditional crime novel but something more interesting”, he says. While some people are apprehensive about Rowling’s success in the world of adult fiction, most of her fellow writers are confident that she will hit the bull’s eye with her new book too. They argue that writing for children is a harder task; they will stop reading if it’s not a real page turner. And Rowling knows how to tell a story.

But yeah, Rowling has definitely got critics too. Internet has an awful lot of people who are shouting that the book will be crappy, but people will buy it just because of who wrote it. Some people are even branding the book as the next version of Desperate Housewives. That’s too bad. Some biased minds will not read the book simply because Rowling wrote it and will call it the worst book of the decade.

Meanwhile, Rowling has reasons to smile. Harry Potter ebooks have sold over £1 million in just 3 days. Let’s see if Rowling’s smile broadens later this year.
