The Casual Vacancy....En route (2)

I'm still reading JK Rowling's "adult" novel, The Casual Vacancy. I wanted so much to love it, and it is very well written, but I must admit that I find the plot mundane. I'm hoping that when I'm finished, the characterization and depth of detail provided will make it one of those books I'm glad I read, a book that stays with me. But, I cannot lie. Right now it's moving like molasses through a snow drip - slow.

  3. Well, it could still pick up - don't worry. Literary fiction takes time to really grab a reader - it isn't a "quick read"....
