    When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early 40s, 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 facade 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.

    Michael says: "Don't have expectations!"

    Where does The Casual Vacancy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Absolutely spellbinding, the best yet


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Casual Vacancy?

    the whole story is an intermingling of various lives, pulled together in Rowling's inimitable style.
    There was no best moment, as the whole book is a best moment.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely, but listened to it spread over a few days. It is a book I shall listen to again quite soon.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a little bit prudish or find sexual innuendos hard to deal with, then be aware in the book there are many references to this type of behaviour and ferocious swearing.
    These are not inappropriate, as this reflects the way many people live, It is a poignant story, I would liken it to a modern day Dickens, making observation on life.
