Known for her Harry Potter Series, this is J.K. Rowling’s first adult fiction novel. Readers should be aware that there is no magic to be found here. Subjects delved into include poverty, drugs, and broken families. This book has the familiar character development Rowling’s readers have come to enjoy, but with a darker, more gritty feel. Some would even say that the characters in The Casual Vacancy can be described as unlikable. Readers who enjoy interconnectedness of characters and relationships between both adults and teenagers may find this novel appealing.
