Rowling says ‘Career of Evil’ is Her “Best Planned Book” — Is It a Ring?

f39171174Have you finished Career of Evil yet? When you have or when you’re curious about what she¬†may have meant in 2014 when she said her planning for the book was “insane,” head on over to CormoransArmy.com, where I’ve posted my first take on the book’s structure.

f42033126In brief, my working thesis for your collaboration or debunking efforts is that the chapters featuring the killer as narrator mark the beginning and end of each one of the book’s seven parts, that Career‘s beginning, middle, and end Parts, 1, 4, and 7, conform to ring composition formula, and that the novel is a turtle-back ring as well, it’s other four Parts, 2 and 6, 3 and 5, echoing or reflecting one another across the story axis.

Which would be consistent with the scaffolding of Casual Vacancy and the first two Strikes.
