Oh Dear !!!,
This review is from: The Casual Vacancy (Paperback)
There are some authors whos books I look forward to knowing that I will get a good interesting informative read. Iain Banks was one and Ian McEwan is a wonderful story teller. JK looks to be a one trick poney with the Potter series. This is sub Tom Sharp without humour or story. It heads into the worst of Irvine Welsh territory. None of the horrible characters, (and the book is full of them) gets their come uppance at the end, a child drowns, a teenager deliberately overdoses, a man has a heart attack and is obviously going to die. The writing is sloppy as well.
Actually this book is foul. I wish I had not read it.
