    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Casual Vacancy to be better than the print version?

    Reading and listening are personal preferences so I would never say one is better than another. However, when you have Ton Hollander narrating, it's not to be missed.


    What other book might you compare The Casual Vacancy to and why?

    Freedom maybe? It's a soap opera but with a bigger meaning


    What about Tom Hollander’s performance did you like?

    His versatility with accents and attitudes.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, just great appreciation for J.K. and her relentless creativity
