    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 recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, an intriguing story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Myriad of themes intertwined.


    Have you listened to any of Tom Hollander’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not.


    If you could rename The Casual Vacancy, what would you call it?

    The Ghost of Barry Fairbrother


    Any additional comments?

    You have to "wade thru" the first 8 chapters as your mind is "flooded" with so many characters. Readers will have to work hard at remembering all the characters and which ones belong to what family and how their roles fit into the overall story.
