J.K. Rowling's New Book!

To start off I should say I've never read a Harry Potter book, but today it has caught my attention that J.K Rowling is releasing a new book.  This will be her first novel for adults and it's called 'The Casual Vacancy'.  I'm not sure why but I'm excited about this (maybe it's me picking up the vibes from millions of Potter fans around the world squealing in anticipation of some new fodder?!) 
Okay, so the synopsis courtesy of Rowling's website is as follows;
When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.
Seemingly an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, what lies behind the pretty fa├žade is a town at war.
Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…Pagford is not what it first seems.
And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?

You know what that reminds me of? Hot Fuzz!  Sounds interesting so I shall endeavour to read it and return with a review in the near future.

Bye for now,
