another else read J. K. Rowling's new book "Casual Vacancy"? I was disappointed. she has a style that brings her characters to life and has a great sense of humor but both were lacking in her new book. all the characters seemed to be stereotypes with no suprises or deeper levels then what you would expect. the story line seemed to be going somewhere and I couldn't help feeling like I was waiting and felt let down when it got towards the end of the book and I realized there was no getting to the story, this was it. what did you think?
