A big novel about a small town...
When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the 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 facade 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 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.

Originally I checked this book out at the library. I had been on a waiting list for several months and wouldn't you know, it came right when I was in the middle of another book. So it sat on my dresser while I finished the other book. Finally I started reading The Casual Vacancy but had barely begun when the library wanted it back. I search everywhere for a book to buy but at $35.00 I was unwilling. I was about ready to order a used copy on Amazon.com when it occurred to me to try Walmart. I'm so glad that I did. It shipped direct to my house in 3 or 4 days for $1.97 shipping and total cost $20.20. That's less than a used book on other sites!! I will certainly use Walmart online again. It's an interesting story, not pretty. Rather a raw story with raw language and funny realism. I like it a lot and recommend it if you like a story off the beaten path. No one can use words like JK Rowling.

The plot is so drab and the characters are so narcissitic that you just don't care what happens to them.
