New book – The Casual Vacancy

10 Oct

Purchased this new book by J. K. Rowling – The Casual Vacancy and it got delivered home today. It so happened that I am half-a-globe away from home and won’t be able to read it for a few days. Thinking of that, I have a huge backlog of books my bookshelf and it may take a while for me to get to this book.

I love Rowling’s previous books primarily because of the way the characters are etched over the seven book series. Even when a book or two is really boring at times, it is compensated by the relevance of its content in the overall scheme of the plot. In terms of writing style though, I didn’t really like her style except for a few chapters here and there. She is not an Agatha Christie or Jeffrey Archer to me, not yet at least.

Given that, the book is going to be in the dust for a while until I take care of my other backlogs. I bought the book, but am not yet excited to read it.
