RFLX Reads: The Casual Vacany by J.K. Rowling

 

TheCasualVacancyPagford is a small, ordinary English town, with ordinary people, who do ordinary things, in ordinary time.  That’s what it seems, at least.  When town council member, Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly , the true nature of this sleepy little town is revealed. Wars of passion, greed, and defiance rage between these seemingly ordinary people and the town council seat, left empty by Mr. Fairbrother, soon becomes the fixation for the towns seemingly ordinary conquerors. Lies, secrets, and revelations color J.K. Rowling’s first adult novel with dark comedy and all the drama she so famously coined in her Harry Potter series.  Her fans will not be disappointed. (Look out for the BBC television adaptation in 2014!)
