  2. I have to agree and disagree with you.
    I agree that I don’t want to know more about Harry because I happen to enjoy fan theories and fanfiction and sometimes what I hear is upsetting and should not be said, i.e. Ron and Hermione would have issues. However, hearing about, say, Dumbledore’s younger years would be amazing. See a Marauders story unfold as it really happened, not from anyone’s biased perspective would be pretty great. I’ll read The Cursed Child because, well, I’m a Potterhead, if the info is out there I need to know it. However, I’m not as excited about it as I am Fantastic Beasts because Newt is one of her favorite characters so this had to truly be a labor of love for her.
    However, I think you have gotten some of your information about her other books wrong. People did sort of sunned A Casual Vacancy, which I actually liked, possibly because it wasn’t like Harry Potter at all. But the story, which was pretty butchered in the miniseries, was a good one and I’d actually recommend it with the warning that it starts a bit slow. As far as I know the Comoran Strike novels have done very well. I finished Cuckoo’s Calling and was ecstatic to receive The Silkworm as a gift. It’s possible that you don’t hear much about it because she tries to keep Galbraith and Rowling separate, I would assume to prevent the constant comparison to Harry Potter. However, from what I’ve heard from the mystery novel community, Comoran Strike was very well received, by critics and readers alike. There was even quite a bit of buzz on her Twitter feed when the third novel’s release date was announced. I don’t know if you’ve actually read the books but it was quite enjoyable.
