Here be-eth a forum discussion of review’s about J.K. Rowling’s latest book, “The Casual Vacancy“. Well, reviews are mixed, but I wont be reading the book at all.

Here’s a brutally honest (and funny) review of the book: Oh, for one multi-faceted Severus Snape, with his venomous tongue and his doe Patronus! Oh, for a many-layered Dumbledore with his upright heart and his murky past! Why do the kids get all the fabulously-drawn characters with their wrongs and their rights, their petty hatreds and their monumental graces and we adults get landed with a novel full of nothing but Dursleys?

Oh, the horror of it all! What? Are we adults not allowed to have adult books about magic? Even George R. R. Martin writes fantasy, and his “Game of Thrones” books are strictly for adults. (Even the “Lord of the Rings” was for adults) But why do we have to read this pile of crap? (to be honest, Id rather read “Fifty Shades of Grey” than “The Casual Vacancy“, and that says a lot about my taste in books!)

So here’s the thing; Ms. Rowling, if you’re paying any attention, hear this: we don’t want to hear about any Dursleys; in our heads, they don’t exist. If anything, we want an adult Harry Potter, please.

That is all.

      • Ah, but that book is absolutely nothing like THIS book. Harry Potter is as far from The Casual Vacancy as a Stephenie Meyer book. I always say give a book a chance. If you’re disappointed after starting it, then ditch it. But don’t judge it based on another book. Judge it based on its own merits. But that’s just me. 🙂
