Running Grave, Part One: A Ring Reading

Reading Rowling’s Latest As If It Were a Dickens Novel Serial: First Thoughts about Chapters

I confess to being of at least two minds with respect to how I should read Rowling’s latest novel.

want to read it the way I read any book I like — straight-through, one sitting, all-nighters as often as not. I miss a lot that way, of course; I’m reading for plot points only and the imaginative immersive experience, not for structural and artistry fine points which are essentially invisible in a speed read. I have read the six Fiona Griffiths novels by Harry Bingham that way last month and Lou Berney’s brilliant Dark Ride just last week.
