    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
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am not sure who would enjoy this book, it was slow and boring and I don't think JK brought it together very well.


    What was most disappointing about J. K. Rowling’s story?

    It was a long story with many characters, but none of them really carried the story and she did not make you really care about any of the characters except Crystal, who had a small part.


    What didn’t you like about Tom Hollander’s performance?

    I dis-like books where the story is read in a basic mono-tone voice with little expression.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment!!!! I excepted a little more from JK.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy the book. I listened to it on audio and out of the 18 hours of story, only about 1 hour was interesting and worth my time. If some you know has already read the book, just have them tell you about and save your time and money.
