The Casual Vacancy

The Casual Vacancy - J.K. Rowling I was a bit apprehensive about reading this book, because I had enjoyed the Harry Potter books so much and was afraid I wouldn't like this one. But, oh, my, was I wrong. As in the Potter books it is clear that Rowling knows how to tell a story, and how to create characters that seem so real that you expect to meet them in the street. It's not that I liked all the characters in The Casual Vacancy, but I could sympathize with many of them and I completely understood what they did and what they said. At certain points it felt as if I was with some of them in a room, looking on.
I really, really loved this book, perhaps this will be my book of the year 2012.
