    To say that Augusten Burroughs has lived an unusual life is an understatement. From having no formal education past third grade and being raised by his mother’s psychiatrist in the seventies to enjoying one of the most successful advertising careers of the eighties to experiencing a spectacular downfall and rehab stint in the nineties to having a number one bestselling writing career in the new millennium, Burroughs has faced humiliation, transformation and everything in between.

    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.

    The Casual Vacancy is one of the most absorbing books I have listened to. In that way, it is still like Harry Potter - the plot is so intricate that I can't pause while reading it. The reading performance really helped me because it sounded so British, and I liked hearing how the names and words sounded.

    It is also at times one of the most upsetting books I have listened to. There was some extremely tough subject matter in it.

    My favorite parts were the funny parts - JKR can still be a very humorous author. I would definitely recommend this book to Potter fans because it still has a very intricate plot, and still has great characters and wit.
