I'm sure by now you've all heard the buzz that J. K. Rowling has written a new novel for adults titled The Casual Vacancy. It's being released later this year on September 27, 2012 and will be available in hardcover, ebook and audio editions. Watch the above video news feed about J. K. Rowling's new novel from the Wall Street Journal for more information and insight about The Casual Vacancy.
Are you planning to buy and read The Casual Vacancy? I don't plan to read her new novel myself. I have not even read any of the Harry Potter novels. I do wish J. K. Rowling all the success in the world with the release of her upcoming novel and hope the transition from children's author to adult author goes smoothly for her.
Just in case you haven't heard what The Casual Vacancy is about, the product description on Amazon states the following:
When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.Until my next post happy reading!!
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 town’s 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?
