entertain trolls any longer4 I m sorry to all the people who have been kind and respectful whether they agreed with me or not You can just ignore these pointsThings you should know 1 Ms Rowling filled my childhood and early teen years with magic I love Harry Potter and I confess to only adding this book after I found out she was the author 2 I did not go into this with the intention to compare it to Harry Potter I did not expect magic or wizards and I fully anticipated this being very different to the HP books 3 I have read and enjoyed many mysterycrime novels in the past My favourites being by Tana French and Gillian Flynn So there was no reason why I couldn t have enjoyed this book simply because it wasn t magical Potterland But I didn t and after putting a lot of thought into this I think I finally understand whyHere s the sad truth I can t stand Rowling s writing when she writes for adults I actually find it painful to read Let s be clear from the beginning I started and never finished The Casual Vacancy because the opening didn t grab me and there was something about it something which I couldn t put my finger on that made it an effort to get through A certain style to the writing which didn t agree with me I thought perhaps it was a one off because I d read all her other works and never had a problem with her writing style That s why I jumped at the chance to try another adult book by Rowling and sort out what was evidently a bout of silliness on my part What this book did give me was an answer to why neither of Rowling s adult books worked for meRowling writes in an unusual manner It s not uniue to her work for adults Harry Potter has it too but the effect had on both is very different Rowling s style of writing including the dialogue between characters is formal to the point of being old fashioned Part of me wants to compare it to Austen but I m cautious of doing so because of the amount of people usually including myself who might read that as a compliment Rowling s formal style doesn t work for me when using it in an adult mystery and pairing it with profanity and grisly murders It feels out of place and weighs down each page with tedious descriptions that use too many awkward similes metaphors and adjectives face the colour of corned beefthe snow fell with soft fingertip plunkslong snouted camerasHer descriptions all felt a bit off to me And I particularly didn t like the unsophisticated use of big words It s like when inexperienced indie authors go crazy with thesauruscom using clunky words like exacerbated and exorbitant in casual sentences that don t benefit from it The characters in this book never check the time or look at their watches they consult their watches Think I m being picky Try reading whole pages where every sentence replaces the obvious words with complex ones and see how far you get without your brain starting to scream And it felt like every single noun had at least one adjective before it Not only that but Rowling repeats similar adjectives when referring to the objects again In one sentence we are told she climbed the steel stairs and in the next she s continuing up the metal stairs WHY And also WHYYYYYYAnother example of Rowling s old fashioned style is her freuent use of expressions like oh my and goodness expressions I m sure some of you will recognise from Harry Potter characters What is this It s like Mary Poppins or Little Women or I don t know Little House on the Prairie And maybe it works fine in all of those same as it works fine in Harry Potter but none of those also had a side helping of profanity and very adult themes They do all however share the formal language styleAnd while I think people were silly to say things about The Casual Vacancy like ohmigod this had like noooooo magic and even fewer dark lords when Rowling clearly said it was an adult mystery book and I wanted to say to those silly peopleI still think it s entirely relevant to compare the two when looking at Rowling s writing style and the reason why sometimes it works and sometimes it really doesn t The formal tone with simplistic language like in Harry Potter is okay but dense descriptions and over complicated sentences made it hard work and tedious in this book It s like a very formal letter with the occasional random swear word thrown in And it doesn t work Not for me anyway The style simply doesn t fit the content there s swearing and murders and people rescuing others by grabbing their breastsI m not even going to talk about the story beyond saying I found it a standard mystery that could have been good if I d not had these other reasons for not liking it The killer is not hard to guess for anyone familiar with crime mysteries but that isn t usually what I care about most in crime mysteries anyway Plus in this case I m just too blinded by my dislike for the writing sigh I think it s fair to say that I m finally done trying to enjoy Rowling s adult booksPS Yes I did get a little overexcited when I googled Mary Poppins gifsBlog Leafmarks Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr Right Girl (Wrong Girl, #2) used some Mary Poppins gifs to make my point in

FREE READ The Cuckoo's Calling

Robert Galbraith Î 6 CHARACTERS READ ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Î Robert Galbraith FREE READ The Cuckoo's Calling Sister the legendary supermodel Lula Landry famously fell to her death a few months earlier The police ruled it a suicide but John refuses to believe that The case plunges Strike int. A first time author who goes by the unassuming name of Robert Galbraith comes out with a mystery novel called The Cuckoo s Calling The book receives favourable reviews and is wholeheartedly accepted by the fraction of the populace that reads itAnd then and this I borrow from reliable old Wikipedia the Sunday Times scratches it s stubbly chin and wonders how a first time author with a background in the army and the civilian security industry could write such an assured debut novel So after much sleuthing and an inuisitive followed by a generous bit of loose lips launching the ueen Ship it was revealed that Robert Galbraith was in fact JKRowlingI could almost imagine Tom Riddle s wand swishing blood red curlicue letters in the air Robert Galbraith is JKRowling JKRowling is Robert Galbraith Ofcourse all hell promptly broke loose after that I am also pretty sure that Madame Rowling went Loki at Comic Con in the privacy of her tastefully done up living roomFor me laying my hands on the book courtesy the best Hufflepuff in the magical and muggle world Mith was nothing short of the Almighty smiling benevolently down at me with a new commandment Thou shalt read the new Rowling tablet Forsaking all others thou shalt not stir till thou has reached ye last page Thou shalt be rewarded for thy loyalty And believe me it was a wholly rewarding experience SYNOPSISSuper Model Lula Landry has plunged to her death from her posh Mayfair balcony While the media has pegged it down as a suicide by a troubled star her half brother is convinced that she has been killed And so he hires Cormoran Strike a down on his luck detective to investigate the caseAs Strike aided by his new albeit temporary secretary Robin gathers clues gets sidetracked and traverses the length and breadth of London to unravel the truthhe faces his own demons and realizes that things can get really ugly really fast REVIEW The Cuckoo s Calling is a delightfully straightforward murder mystery And at it s helm is the eually delightful Cormoran Strike Cormoran is not your conventionally good looking lit cheroot hanging seductively from his lower lip lady slaying Private Eye He is a massive rugby player sized man not so easy on the eye and burdened with a prosthetic leg Mad Eye Moody lives a vindictive ex a grimy family background and dire finances But hell s bells he is plain out adorable His innate decency his blustering efforts to not sully the sexual waters with his attractive new secretary his attention to detail and his flashes of vulnerability make him a well rounded main leadHe is not a fabulously perfect hero and so I have the biggest crush on him And therefore if the book translates into a movie please please please I would fervently hope that Nathan Fillion would fill Cormoron s shoes I mean yes Fillion is a dreamboat but he has the whole clumsy yet suave air down to a tee and we have already seen how perfectly adeuate he looks cast as a film noir detective in CASTLE s The Blue ButterflyI mean look at himComing to Cormoran s new secretary Robinshe is an absolute star Robin is freshly engaged to a very proper young man and is gooey eyed enough to settle for a two point five existence But she craves excitement Not the sordid excitement of a secret fling but the childish glee of solving a mysterious mystery And she s the perfect foil to Cormoron s elegant hippo act Infact with her strawberry blonde hair and her transparent need to Run with the Doctor Detective she reminded me of Amy Pond Will love transpire between Robin and Cormoran If it does I for one will be knitting booties for their bonnie babiesThe Supporting cast of characters is rich and varied I loved each one of them From the coke snorting Tansy to the meticulous security man to the slightly unhinged half brother to the wolf masking wearing boyfriend and prime suspect to the ego boosting Ciara Porter to the larger than life rapper to the maliciously camp designer I loved all their character profiles Everyone had a solid role to play and everyone was infinitely readableMinion kisses for allFor all the Britophiles out there this is a treat Modern day London effectively wears the garb of a smoky 1940s lamplit whodunnit You are utterly charmed and steadily soak in the atmosphere like a comforting soak in a hot tubAs for the pace of the plot it is slow and steady There are no cliff hangers the staple of mystery novels at the end of each chapter There are no high octane moments There are no unexpected plot twists And yet you carry on Your interest never wanes The story builds up steadily from a strong skeleton to a steady fleshing out of detail coupled with a handful of sinews worked in with precision and finally the end result is a fully functioning thriller The story is no great shakes If you have been a mystery enthusiast you will figure out the baddie pretty soon But the joy of reading a good crime novel is to rub your hands in glee as you poke your head over the long suffering detective s shoulder and go in your head Ooh ohhI KNEW IT Rowling s writing is flawless witty and generously peppered with some choice abuses Ron Weasley would approve Her skill is strong as ever and shorn of any pretensions Her observations on human fallacies are uncomfortably accurate She holds what could be a rambling storyline together purely on the strength of her intuitive grasp on her characters emotionsAt the end of the day she justifies her right to the Writing ThroneI come away utterly and completely enchanted
