Re: WF Book Club - Currently Reading The Casual Vacancy
I've read the Casual Vacancy. I didn't enjoy it much but I did find the bad language quite funny. You got the impression that JK Rowling really got a kick out of being able to finally have the words 'fuck' and 'cunt' in one of her books. I wish she'd used them earlier, to be honest. I think the one missing ingredient from the Harry Potter series is a subplot involving Dumbledore sulking after he hears Harry Potter referring to him as 'a paedo cunt'; in actual fact, it was that little shit Draco Malfoy, who'd used Polyjuice Potion to make himself look like Potter, deliberately allowing himself to be overheard slandering Dumbledore in an effort to cause dissention among the Order of the Phoenix. Apparently the publishers didn't go for it.
