Fiction by J.K. Rowling.
Okay. Let's get this out of the way.
THIS BOOK IS NOT LIKE HARRY POTTER.
That said, it is an extremely good book in its own right. But I think Potter lovers might be disappointed.
Ms Rowling might have done better to release it under a pseudonym; it's that different. But in that case I guess no one would have read it, which would have been a shame.
Let's face it: If they put J.K. Rowling's name on a roll of TP people would read it! And if she tried to sell a book with this premise and and unknown name, no one would buy it. (Sorry, but it's the truth!)
Here's the premise: "In a small boring English village the town council is locked in a conflict over the drawing of district lines. One of the important council members dies, leaving a vacant seat that could turn the tide for either faction."
I know! Does that sound like a yawn-fest or what? But it's NOT! It's an awesome book.
This is very definitely a novel for adults. By which I mean, there are cuss words and sex. Oh, and drugs. But still...
This book is a testament to J.K. Rowling's skill as an author. Even without the fancy backdrop of the magical world, she can write characters you are fascinated by.
