Avatar ImageHP_lives_on_4ever says: Finally finished it and I can't wait for the next installment of the series. The ending was a bit of a shocker, but well worth the wait.Avatar Imageavada kadavra crucio says: LOVED The Silkworm. Got it as an audiobook instead of Amazon as they are being so weird about Hachette right now. Avatar Imagecarry-o-line says: I have both the eBook (Nook) and the hard back. I love it. Not finished yet, but I will be soon. And then I'll be ready for the next Strike book.Avatar Imagesqueaker3 says: I'm about half way through (I'm not a fast reader) but so far think this one is even better than the first! Cormoran Strike rocks!Avatar ImageG.Weasley says: I didn't know that it was published until a day after it came out and then my dad took me to the book store and bought me the book so I'm excited to read it!Avatar Imagepolly-xx says: I pre-ordered from Amazon, and it was delivered to my Kindle right on the release date. Now I just have to find time to read it! Avatar Imagegambyt says: Read it.... LOVED it.... next pleeze!Avatar ImageRogue_Hermione says: I thought the best part of the first book in what is now a series was the two main characters and their interaction. In this book the interaction didn't really begin until the middle of a rather long book. While I thought the plot of the first book was a bit gimmicky this one was more straight forward. However, I think Rowling was being too safe, writing about people in the publishing business, something she surely knows well. I would like to see her take on a bigger story, perhaps involving organized crime or some other major criminal enterprise that a private detective might get involved with. There is a rather odd error on the book. This book seems to be set in 2010. An unimportant background character who is celebrating his 90th birthday got to know the uncle of another character while doing national service. Someone who was born in 1920 would have been just the right age for World War II. I don't think it was ever referred to as national service.
