    Rowling proved that she can finish what she begins. Not only that, her writing improved from the first Harry Potter book to the last. I'm anxious to see what she writes in a more adult venue.

    More of a maybe for me. Not really into adult novels much, but I LOVED the Harry Potter series. So I will at least try it out and see what it's like. But then...I still have yet to finish the last Harry Potter book haha!

    She is a terrible author. I couldn't make it through half of her first book.

    I finished the Potter series because I was invested, but I don't really care much for her writing. Good for her for continuing with what she loves, but I'm not excited to read it.

    Hmmm. Interesting. An adult novel. I'll probably check it out just to see how well she can do in that genre.

    She's better than Stephanie Meyer by a long shot, and I enjoyed Harry Potter. But I really don't have much time to read these days.

    No..., it just means the books are not aimed at children.

    After her successes in H.P., I'm sure people would buy just about anything she writes now... the first time.

    I sure wish she'd stop using that hyper-scrawny photoshopped publicity photo, though. It makes her look like an alien.

    She's a good writer, but Harry Potter wasn't the best thing ever. I'll read her new book.

    See, problem is I have got an illness, one that as I become more exposed to relentless flaunting of the 'latest greatest' films/books, the less and less I want to see/read them.
    Gimme William S. Burroughs any day.

    Rowling had not only had one age when writing Harry Potter, but she gained so much readers from those books, and capatived so many readers since then. Her writing improved from Harry Potter and I'm really happy and excited for her who is now writing more on the outside world besides HP. I'd love to get my hands on this book!

    I think she is a wonderful writer and if I'm not mistaken, Potter books went above and beyond being a 'kids' book...many adults love Harry Potter. (I have yet to REALLY give them a shot but I know many of my friends look forward to the books and movies)

    That woman could write about someone picking their toenails for 500 pages and I'd read it. She's so talented.

    When it is out, I will borrow it from the library. Didnt enjoy the Harry Potter series, too old when it came out. Too much of Harry Potter was Tolkein & Romanism revisited

    She's a good writer. I enjoyed the Harry Potter books, well the first 2/3 of them especially. I really dislike how she ended the series. They are her books but felt it was kind of a slap in the face to fans.

    They should have a "Maybe" choice. I'm not going to read the book just because some famous Author wrote it, I need at least the general summery. I've never read any of her Harry Potter books, so I can't just determine from that... Maybe GIF

    I like her work with Harry Potter I really don't know how she will do as a writer of adult novels with that being said I believe I will dust off my Harry Potter books.

    J.K. Rowling will create gold in the form of liturature. Harry Potter was only the begining of what will be some of the most influential and iconic work of this generation.
