Author I wish people would read more.
Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling)
I’m sure many Harry Potter fans were much like myself in that we were extremely excited when we found out that JK Rowling was writing another book. But were then disappointed to find out that The Casual Vacancy was slow and boring. Therefore when The Cuckoo’s Calling was released we didn’t read it assuming it would be just like The Casual Vacancy.
I was wrong. I was so wrong. I don’t even like murder mysteries and I enjoyed this book. It was funny, interesting and you will be guessing who the murderer was right to the end. One problem I did have is it feels very like Sherlock Holmes, however I have not read the original Sherlock Holmes books so I can’t say how alike they are.
I should probably add that I got The Cuckoo’s Calling as an audio book originally and it was fantastic. If you are able to find a code for a free audio book on audible (hint: youtubers give them out all the time) you should totally get the Cuckoo’s Calling.
