About the Author
Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series and The Casual Vacancy.
"One of the books of the year."—USA Today
"Robert Galbraith has written a highly entertaining book... Even better, he has introduced an appealing protagonist in Strike, who's sure to be the star of many sequels to come.... its narrative moves forward with propulsive suspense. More important, Strike and his now-permanent assistant, Robin (playing Nora to his Nick, Salander to his Blomkvist), have become a team - a team whose further adventures the reader cannot help eagerly awaiting."—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
"Rowling switches genres seamlessly...a gritty, absorbing tale."—People (3.5/4 stars)
"[Rowling's] literary gift is on display in this work. She
crafts an entertaining story [and] comes up with an ending that I'll
admit I was surprised by. . . . A fun read, with a main character you
can care about and one you'll want to see again in other adventures."—Washington Post
"An extravagant, alien, fascinating world for its characters to explore...great pleasures."—Slate
A Very Large Expanse of Sea was different than my normal reads for many reasons: 1) it dealt with modern politics and tensions 2) it dealt with racism, bias, and cultural interaction. Mafi's book challenged my way of thinking about other cultures and people. (It will probably do it to you too.) I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn problems in our society. - Kaitlyn, customer age 13
