This is pretty good, although Stephen Fry's reading of Harry Potter can hardly be beaten
The fact that he let the story come to life without annoying accents or acting
The Casual Vacancy is not a great book, but certainly a good one. Although the descriptions of the Field and its inhabitants are lengthy, they bring home the hopelessness and squalor. Then again, the well-off have problems of their own and are caught in their situations as well as the people in the Fields.
I found the atmosphere thoroughly depressing. That goes to show that this book involves its readers.
