I enjoyed reading JK Rowling outside of the Harry Potter series. I admit I was a bit taken aback with the language, however I think it was in keeping with the characters.

For awhile I read most anything written by or about Ms, Rowling. I'm an adult reader of the older ilk, and I also have to admit to a love for well-written chidren's fairie tales i.e., The Hobbit, recently out. I was quickly entranced by the first book of Harry Bown's. Now after 7 books, all very enjoyed, I find the woman who wrote them a true mystery. Everything about her is admirable. She took her imagination and came up with a great and thrilling story. How is she? How did she get the strength and courage to raise a young child and write this complex, well-plotted book(s). This book by Sean Smith gives a fair sized amount new knowledge of J, I only wish he had gotten into who she is right inside that part of her that dreams her characters, her plots, her twists and turns. What a fascinating life she must secretly live in her imagination. I would have liked to know more about her inner life. What it must be like to live such a long time writing about this fascinating world. It make our old corrupt world seem so dreary. If you feel as I do, buy it, only I wished I could have known JK better.

So far I have been unable to even get into this monotonous, poorly written book. Don't bother with this book.

With Rowling as the subject matter, how can it be bad!? The author, if good, could almost "phone it in" and still have a hit!
