JK Rowling review: The Casual Vacancy breaks Harry Potter's spell
by Allison Pearson (from The Telegraph)

It's a three-star review, but by golly it's persuaded me I want to read the book! Can't wait to see the reactions from inattentive parents who merrily let their little kiddy Potter fans read it, and from Americans. Just Americans -- their moral reaction will be essentially of the level of kids, I expect.
