So as you all know I am a massive Potterhead. And like most Potterheads when the news of a new book written by J K Rowling was announced, I waited with baited breath.
Along came The Casual Vacancy. I like many others was there, faced pressed against the window of the bookshop, desperate to get my hands on the latest Rowling Book!
I read it that day and found at first I was disappointed, the first hundred pages were SO slow and difficult. I didn’t want to admit this! But after the initial struggle, a truly glorious novel came alive.
Then like always when the book is finished us fans are left with that empty feeling of not knowing when the magic of being able to start a new unexplored book will be ready.
Today I found out that J K Rowling has only gone and written a book, and wait for it, we don’t even have to start a count down!
Its available NOW!
Wait, what? I hear you say!
Well Rowling released the book under a different name!!!
HOW EXCITING IS THIS????
So the book is called The Cuckoo’s Calling and it’s under the name Robert Galbraith. Its a classic crime book likened to Ruth Rendell.
Now as you probably know by now I adore crime books and I also adore J K Rowling so I’m expecting brilliant things. Because let’s face it the lady KNOWS how to write a good book.
Here is the the cover, and isn’t it amazing!
Here is the blurb;
‘When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed she committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in Private Investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case.
Strike is a war veteran – wounded both psychically and psychologically – and his life is in disarray. This case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model’s complex world, the darker things get – and the closer he gets to terrible danger…’
It sounds terribly exciting and I cannot wait to be back in the pages of J K Rowling’s words.
So I’m now off to hunt down the book as I don’t think I can possibly wait for it to be delivered. But if you can manage here is the link to order a copy;
