Its not a book i would have bought or read if someone else had written it but curiosity meant i had to.
Its a harsh book. Its a bit over crude at times. Its like the author had a list of the antisocial spectrum and was trying to tick them off one by one and in some cases it was done with the subtlety of Ron Weasley at a house elf convention.
I found bits of it difficult to read due to the content. And i'm worried some ill advised parental units might buy this for the kids thinking it can't be that bad when in all honesty it'll warp there fragile little minds.
But I did enjoy the book. For its crudity in parts which felt a little forced Ms Rowling is a good writer and very good with characters. The characters wether likable or not are well drawn and fit into a decent web of a plot . The ending is not pleasant but there is redemptions of sorts mingled with the misery which is core to the book and peaks at the climax.
Worth a read for those curious or who want to be involved in the literary debates . Its a big move from the HP series but its not a bad book .Definitley not one for her old audience
