My favorite part of reading a J.K. Rowling book is getting to know the characters, whom Rowling describes vividly and gives fantastic histories. Cormoran is no exception, from his missing leg to his obsession with Doom Bar beer. I also loved the way Rowling wrote this sprawling mystery that introduces so many plotlines that it can’t possibly come together at the end, but it just manages to with a surprising and tense conclusion. Recommended for fans of literary mysteries.
