Description

A big novel about a small town...

When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock.

Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.

Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils...Pagford is not what it first seems.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity, and unexpected revelations?

A big novel about a small town, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling's first novel for adults. It is the work of a storyteller like no other.

The other side of JK Rowling
By: Nadia Karina

This is totally different from Harry Potter. It’s very dark, very dark. It’s not for children obviously. But I love it. Because it still has the mistery, the wondering, and plot twists like in Harry Potter. And very complex. Very good writing

Too serious and dark
By: Isti Maisaroh

This is the book from Rowling that I didn't expect to give such a not-so-nice review. Maybe because I was still hooked with Harry Potter Series, that it seemed too serious and adult for my liking when I finished reading it. With many people' stories told here, it seems that the main character of this book is the town itself. It occurs to me that Rowling doesn't tell anyone's story here, but she tells the story of the town as a whole. Hence, you will find various stories of people living in the town. Complicated, but very interesting subject if you want to analyze it, you know with English-Lit style. Any English Lit students must understand what I mean...
