Title: The Casual Vacancy
Author: J.K. Rowling
Publisher: Little, Brown Book Group
Release Date: September 27th 2012
When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock.
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.
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 first seems.
And the empty seat left by Barry on the
parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town
has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion,
duplicity and unexpected revelations?
A big novel about a small
town, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults. It is
the work of a storyteller like no other.
Why I am waiting:
I'll be honest, I really want to read this just to see how she changes from the Harry Potter world to an adult book.
