Rowling Fans, be ready !
After the huge success of The Cuckoo's Calling, J K Rowling, writing under the pen name of Robert Galbraith, is back with her second book in the Comoran Strike series.
The book's name is The Silkworm. The main protagonist of the novel, Cormoran Strike, is seen walking through one of the dark alleys (of, I Guess, London) in search of an answer for a mystery. And how keen are we Rowling fans to follow him
Rowling, we all know, is immensely popular for the Harry Potter magic. However, last year she published a book under the pen name Robert Galbraith.
Titled The Cuckoo's Calling, the book was widely praised for it's polished writing and exquisite story telling. Only later did the janata stumble upon the fact that it was Rowling herself at work. After that, the book flew off the shelves, thanks to her dedicated fan followers.
I was one of them.
To put things in perspective, this was the only book I loved reading the whole of last year. This was the only book which I could not put my hands off, once I started reading.
The mystery was superb, the writing was distinctly refined and the story telling immensely mature. The characters in the book were quirky yet affable. And the plot was a great whodunnit.
And now with Rowling coming with the second book in the series, I can't wait to get started with the reading.
The book is expected to the available in stores across India around the 20th of June, 2014. Flipkart and Amazon have already started accepting the pre orders.
Happy Reading to all JK fans, across India and the world!!
