I can well believe that (though I haven't actually read TCV yet). The Harry Potter books include a strong mystery element, so she has a natural aptitude for that, while TCV seems to have been written out of political conviction more than anything else.

The sequel to The Cuckoo's Calling just came out last month, has anyone read it yet? As always, it is extremely hard to snag a copy of her new books whether it be at the library or in the bookstore, so I ordered it online but it's taking a while. I should hope it's as good as the first!
yep i finished the sequel last week. i really liked it but some of the things in it were so weird, it was hard to imagine that it was written by the same person who wrote Harry Potter. i liked the mystery though and the end was super suspenseful, i couldn't stop reading.
