Early reviews of J.K. Rowling's "The Casual Vacancy are starting to come in:
"[W]hereas Rowling's shepherding of readers was, in the Harry Potter series, an essential asset, in The Casual Vacancy her firm hand can feel constraining. She leaves little space for the peripheral or the ambiguous; hidden secrets are labelled as hidden secrets, and events are easy to predict." - The New Yorker
"Even with its moments of humor, it's a hard story where some people just don't get saved, because really, they never had a chance. It's filled with often-unlikeable people, some of whom cross the line into terrible." - The Associated Press
