Also, it seems deliberately, intentionally disgusting and cruel. As far as I can figure out, the only reason people are reading it is because of Rowling’s name. And there’s even rowping description. Not to say that this should not be included, but there is more to life and HOPE is a part of it.

So I knew there was going to be a book. Second, why all the comparisons to Harry Potter? I feel bad comparing it to Harry Potter, because it’s a totally different novel. How far into the books do I have to go to get me interested?
They call it “denial marketing”: There were so many characte I really don’t have too much to say about this book. Petty small town politics, gossip and soap opera-like romance? Sadly, there’s not much of that in this novel.
