I find how she published this, quietly and with no hype, quite amazing. I bet she had her own little adventure whilst dealing with the novel. She got to hear what people thought, without them comparing the book to the infamous Harry Potter series, or having tons of readers give the book 5 stars just because Rowling wrote the words. The way she quietly published the book could also be a kind of experiment on her part. How would people react to this supposedly debut novel?
And, now, the next question. Are there any more of her books hiding out there? (Probably not, but then no one suspected her to have The Cuckoo's Calling hiding in the shelves of bookstores either.) What do you think? Personally, I doubt it. But wouldn't that be cool? I might start thinking of her as a spy-under cover author.
The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith
Publication Date: April 30th, 2013
Genre: Adult Mystery/Crime
What do think of this new discovery?
All I know, is that J.K Rowling will go down in history with many achievements and personal stories. The tale of the Cuckoo's Calling will be one many people remember, and perhaps even admire.
