  The Vacancy by JK Rowling was depressing

| | See all seventiesgirl's reviews (1)

I recently bought The Vacancy to take away on holiday. Never having read any of the Harry Potter books, I knew that The Vacancy would be well written and it was. The characters were very well drawn and utterly believeable. I also thought that the book would have a happy ending, all the characters 'getting what they deserved' but it was not to be. I was utterly shocked and disappointed and quite frankly, saddened at the ending. Don't read this book if you like happy endings!!

  buy it!

Just finished this book and really enjoyed it.

I feel people have been out to knock this book before it came out without giving it a chance. Even though i am on the opposite side of the political scale to rowling it has still made me think twice about certain situations and you can always pick out your own and other peoples traits and faults in characters in this book. Her description of characters and life is so in touch with the current times even if people don't want to admit it.

Dont not read, I couldnt read it any more as it was so boring. First few chapters do nothing but describe a boring old town and a man who died. I wish I had never paid 14 pounds for it! Such a disapointment after Harry Potter!!

  Suprising yet good

This is compltely different to the harry potter books, but is also good. im only about 50 pages through but im enjoying it already and think that everyone should atleast give it a go. however this book is not suitable for younger readers who enjoyed harry potter due to the language and sexual refrences.
