I was at dinner with a bunch of authors the other night and I speculated that because it is Rowling, it could be six hundred pages of the word "What" and it will still hit the bestseller list.

But Paolo reminded us that because it is "Adult" it won't just be that. It will also have the word Balls.

What? Balls. WHAT? BALLS! What. Balls. What? Balls?

Well, to be fair, the Harry Potter books were actually pretty well written. She had good stories, strong characters and decent pacing. I thought the extended camping in the last book got long, but everything else was pretty decent, especially considering it was juvenile fiction. Not the best books I ever read, but pretty good overall.

I agree, though, she'd probably make a mint off a book that just said 'What? Balls!'.

The last book introducing the whole 'three super special magic items' including the Wand of Awkward Binding Logic angle, then using it as the final end of the whole series felt like a cop out.

There's a line in the book about a "conveniently unguarded vagina". The Washington Post review even said there's be instant Internet slash porn called "Harry Potter and the Conveniently Unguarded Vagina".

Every person associated with that franchise has done their damnedest to dissasociate themselves from it. No one wants to get typecast as the Harry Potter Person. I don't know why Rowling would be any different.

She is a very good writer, after all.

Published in the U.S. by Little, Brown and Company and in Britain by Little, Brown Book Group, "The Casual Vacancy" is scheduled to come out Thursday and has been held under tight control, with media outlets required to sign non-disclosure agreements before being permitted to see the book. The Associated Press declined to sign such an agreement and instead purchased a copy early.


What's the over/under that fully-DRM-removed ebook versions appear on the Pirate Bay before the Thursday release?

Nah, I thought the pacing was ok... It could have been worse. Ever tried to read Anne Rice? It's like she writes her stories, gets finished, realizes that she's about 75-100 pages short, and then adds the shiat about 2/3 of the way into the book, so they take these random, lumbering detours, and then get back on track later on. Far worse, IMHO.

You know, I didn't see any evidence on her part that she was able to write "a rural comedy of manners that, having taken on state-of-the-nation social themes, builds into black melodrama." and I am most likely going to read it because it's going to be like watching a toddler drive a Harley.

Deathly Hallows is running neck and neck with Chambers of Secrets as my least favorite book in the series. Yes, the Wand of Awkward Binding Logic angle basically said screw your education, it's the wand that matters. Also did they really need to kill that many characters. Thankfully it was still readable, unlike the final third of Mockingjay.

Is this going to be like when R.L. Stein of Goosebumps fame wrote that god awful "adult" novel called Superstition?

Because that did well.

/Spoiler: it didn't.
// No, I'm not seriously comparing these two writers.

His wand? I thought she just wrote 7 adult novels about a young man discovering his wang?

I liked how the big finale took her 7 book morality tale about the perils of bigotry and rendered null and void by saying you can tell if someone is evil by age 11 and/or by what house they get sorted into.
