Beginning to Read A Casual Vacancy

2 Nov

I’ve read the first thirty-five pages of A Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling, and so far it’s been a bit of an ordeal. It has many characters, so many I’ve started making a list, and I don’t connect with any of them. A part of me is surprised that her first adult novel isn’t fantasy fiction; instead it’s mainstream fiction about an English town full of malicious conflict. On the other hand, if you’re an extremely popular author who made a fortune off movie rights, then you can afford to write in whatever genre you feel like.
