“A needle-sharp and darkly comic expose of today’s class-ridden society . . . A highly readable morality tale for our times”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Rowling’s first release post-Potter and received mixed reviews. Even now it’s a love or hate book. I bought it in paperback because I couldn’t live with that pink dust cover. So I got it home and began reading it but by the time I got to around page 50 or so, I’d had enough and put it in my hated pile, which isn’t all that large in reality. Anyway, a few months later, I decided to give it another go, and I’m really pleased I did.
