    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.

    cristina says: "I was surprised by how much I liked it"
    "Epic Story on small town life..."

    Story
    Would you listen to The Casual Vacancy again? Why?

    No. Because I already know the story!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rachael Weiden because of how sad her story was.


    Which character – as performed by Tom Hollander – was your favorite?

    Fats


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Rachael tried to protect her brother from being taken from their family because of neglect.


    Any additional comments?

    Only downside is that there were so many characters that the book gets a bit confusing when you don't listen for a whole weekend - trying to remember who is who...
