Last week I started reading The Casual Vacancy by J K Rowling. I've been curious to see how she would do writing outside of the Harry Potter world, and I have to say, so far it's not bad! This week my tease is from the opening paragraph of the novel.
"Barry Fairbrother did not want to go out to dinner. He had endured a thumping headache for most of the weekend and was struggling to make a deadline for the local paper. However, his wife had been a little stiff and uncommunicative over lunch, and Barry deduced that his anniversary card had not mitigated the crime of shutting himself away in the study all morning. It did not help that he had been writing about Krystal, whom Mary disliked, although she pretended otherwise."
-The Casual Vacancy, by J K Rowling
