J.K. Rowling is the author of the enduringly popular, era-defining Harry Potter seven-book series, as well as several stand-alone novels for adults and children, and the acclaimed Strike crime fiction series written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. Many of her books have been adapted for film and television, and she has collaborated on a play continuing Harry's story on stage, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and a new series of films inspired by her series companion volume Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Anmeldelser

«This is a wonderful novel. JK Rowling's skills as a storyteller are on a par with RL Stevenson, Conan Doyle and PD James. Here, they are combined with her ability to create memorable and moving characters to produce a state-of-England novel driven by tenderness and fury»

Melvyn Bragg, The Observer

«A needle-sharp and darkly comic expose of today's class-ridden society . . . A highly readable morality tale for our times»

Emma Lee-Potter, Daily Express

«The Casual Vacancy is a stunning, brilliant, outrageously gripping and entertaining evocation of British society today. [J.K. Rowling] has done a rather brave thing and pulled it off magnificently»

Henry Sutton, The Mirror

«A big, ambitious, brilliant, profane, funny, deeply upsetting and magnificently eloquent novel of contemporary England . . . This is a deeply moving book by somebody who understands both human beings and novels very, very deeply»

Lev Grossman, Time Magazine

«One marvels at the skill with which Rowling weaves such vivid characters in and out of each other's lives»

Christopher Brookmyre, The Daily Telegraph

«Heartbreaking - turning the page seems unbearable, but not as much as putting down the book would be»

Deepti Hajela, Associated Press

«An exquisite and occasionally moving black comedy . . . The acid test - I suspect it would do well even if its author's name weren't J.K. Rowling»

David Robinson, Scotsman

«Insightful, meaningful, daring and resolutely challenging to tabloid assumptions regarding the moral worth of individuals»

Scotland on Sunday

«The action bowls along compellingly, most of the characters are vividly drawn and there are some sharp - often very sharp - observations about their social pretensions . . . a bold and distinctive effort»

The Sunday Telegraph

«This is a novel of insight and skill, deftly drawn and, at the end, cleverly pulled together. It plays to her strengths as a storyteller»

The Economist

«The Casual Vacancy is a brilliant novel, entertaining, intelligent, moving, passionate and hard-hitting; touching on familiar subjects but approaching them with great originality and skill. Moreover, it's unputdownable . . . The novel is a triumph»

Irish Times

«Rowling is a great storyteller with a clear eye and a warm heart, and The Casual Vacancy is a moving and immensely pleasurable novel»

Sunday Business Post Ireland

«Wrestles honourably and intelligently with big moral and political questions . . . a study of provincial life, with a large cast and multiple, interlocking plots, drawing inspiration from such writers as Trollope, Gaskell and, perhaps most of all, George Elliot . . . [the plot] is big, engrossing, and runs like clockwork»

Guardian

«Rowling weaves a web of connections that resonate long after the book ends»

Daily Express

«This is a book with a social conscience . . . Much lurks behind Pagford's idyllic facade»

The Times

«Rowling once again shows her skill at laying bare the best and (more often) worst of human nature»

Star Magazine

«A perfect holiday read»

Best Magazine

«JK's first grown-up novel is an eminently-readable tale of small minds in small-town England»
