    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 fa├žade 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 try another book from J. K. Rowling and/or Tom Hollander?

    Based on this story probably not. The story is drawn out, the juicy details are left out. Took me the 1st 6.5 hours to get into it.


    Has The Casual Vacancy turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'm not even sure what this genre is . . . . Boring? Pointless story?


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked the enthusiam in the readers voice. I didn't like the story


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Casual Vacancy?

    the 1st 6.5 hours of it.


    Any additional comments?

    DON'T WASTE A CREDIT ON THIS!!!!!
