When I first tell you that the author is Robert Galbraith, you probably would think to yourself that either you’ve never heard of the individual before, or yeah, you’ve seen his name before. However, the attempt to remain unrelated with her previous hit series, Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling has been revealed to be the writer behind the pseudonym! The critiques for the book were promising in the beginning, but as soon as word went out that it was Rowling who had written the novel, the book began to skyrocket with success.
The Silkworm is a mystery novel where we have a private detective searching for a novelist named Owen Quine. Like most thrilling stories, there is much more to the story than just a disappearance as a mystery unfolds and the plot thickens. The story that Quine has created ends up being much more important than initially thought as it would ruin the lives of many if ever published.
How do you feel about J.K. Rowling having her identity revealed? Have you had the chance to read the story? What do you think?
It must have been infuriating to have her sly plan of having readers read her story from a fresh perspective ruined. However, it shouldn't have too much of an effect because of how well-written the novel was! I wouldn't have expected any less from the legendary Harry Potter author which to this day still holds a very special place in most of our hearts.
