GUYS I ASKED JO ROWLING A QUESTION AND IT WAS THE LAST QUESTION AND IT WAS ABOUT DEATH AND NOW I CAN DIE HAPPY.
I had a ticket for this but couldnae go due to university and now MY SOUL HAS BEEN CRUSHED BY A THOUSAND KNIVES OF STEEL AND SHITCAKE!
Can we settle an important question? How do you pronounce your last name?
It is Row-ling. As in rolling pin. (mimics rolling action)
So if any of you hear someone pronounce her name "Rohw-ling", you have my permission to hit them over the head with -- not with Order of the Phoenix, that would be cruel. Something smaller, like a fridge.
Or more so even, without Hermione, for instance, Harry and Ron would’ve died in the Philosopher’s Stone. They would’ve been crushed by the devil’s snare. She was probably more powerful that like, a 1/3, of the Death Eaters as well.
She’s a bit like CJ Cregg actually. This seems out of the blue but I just woke up from a wee nap and my brain is jumping like a child pumped so full of E-numbers it could be used as a metaphor for consumerism in Bourgeois culture in theSocialist Worker, so bear with me here.
J.K. Rowling’s new book is called The Casual Vacancy:
The Casual Vacancy
When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.
Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade 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?
Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.
