J.K. Rowling's New Book

As many of you have probably heard, J.K. Rowling, famous for her Harry Potter series, recently released a book under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith called The Cuckoo's Calling.

Although the novel was released on June 1st, the official word of Rowling being the author didn't hit until little under a week ago. This has come as a surprise to many fans and readers across the world; in fact, CNN reported that "on Amazon.com, sales soared more than 507,000% after Rowling acknowledged being the author." However, Rowling wasn't even expecting the leak herself, explaining that she trusted her lawyers with the knowledge of her secret novel. After one of the lawyers told his wife's best friend, the news trickled onto Twitter... and from there, well... chaos ensued!

The AADL's copies of The Cuckoo's Calling are now on high demand, but you can still put your name on the list to read Rowling's mysterious novel about supermodel Lula Landry. Be prepared to fall into a world of "multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers" (dust jacket).


Good book.

looks like a great read

I'm actually really excited about this book. J. K. Rowling is a really good author!!!

Yet another thing to be "mad" about.

interesting. I wonder if we using a pseudonym has had an effect on the reception of the book. has anyone read it?

i haven't read anything by her yet

Looks good! Can't wait to read.

Good author, so it will be a good book too.

My fellow Harry Potter fans will be interested to read this article (click on the link below) that compiles many of the announcements Rowling made about what happens to the books' characters after the final Battle of Hogwarts.


It's too bad that the leak happened, I'm sure Rowling was hoping to see how well her non-Potter writing would do without the name attached.

I read her other adult book, it wasn't very good. Maybe that's why she used a pseudonym for this one.
