    Story

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

    This story is tied for first place for all the audio books I've listen to so far. The other book is "the Help".


    What about Tom Hollander’s performance did you like?

    He really brought all of the characters alive for the reader. And in this book, it was all about the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    While the story was gritty at times it was impossible to put down. It was a lot like going past a bad car accident... Impossible to look away from.

    The year is 1984 and the city is Tokyo.

    A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver's enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 - "Q" is for "question mark". A world that bears a question....

    Any additional comments?

    The style of the book was stiff and the story line was equally so. I only listened to the remainder of the book out of the same curiosity that a bad car accident brings on my ride to work. Save yourself from this car wreck.
