If you are a kid, do not go out and buy The Casual Vacancy. It’s an adult book…at first when I heard that, I thought it meant in the sense that even Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and all the HP books that come after it could be considered adult, but no. This is legitimately an adult novel.

Now I’m kind of wondering how she managed to keep Harry Potter so comparatively hopeful and upbeat while this stuff was also inside her head.
