    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little 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 at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    Story
    Would you try another book from J. K. Rowling and/or Tom Hollander?

    Not under these conditions....... the arrogant billionaire. This has more value as a paperwieght in print!!!!!!!!!! The talent for creating a real picture of the world you are reading or hearing is there, but who wants to read this especially from the lady who created Potter. If it had been anyone else, I wouldn't have even bothered to listen much to the story at all and wouldn't do it the first time if I knew what I knew now. WOW... The words foul, repulsive, and tragic (on many levels) come to mind. Yeah she's out of the Potter box but I think she's Pandoras sister. God save us from such.


    If you’ve listened to books by J. K. Rowling before, how does this one compare?

    Comparatively, her other books were absorbing and made one want to hear the story again and again. Not so at all with this. The language was in the words of Dumbledore "disgusting"..Scarred and heartbroken is my reaction.


    What about Tom Hollander’s performance did you like?

    He did quite well......... it was the words he had to perform that was my problem.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like tragic drama with filthy language and lewd and shocking content and you don't care who writes it, this may be your thing. I literally felt like I was wrestling a poisonous snake trying to keep it from poisoning me.
