GoodReads.com has nominated J.K. Rowling’s first adult novel The Casual Vacancy for the Best Fiction Book of 2012.
As we reported previously, The Casual Vacancy received mixed reviews from critics and fans alike, but for fans of Harry Potter the book was a far cry from the setting of the Hogwarts Saga while still possessing that flavor and touch of brilliant storytelling from the accomplished author.
When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.Seemingly an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, 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 if 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 revelation?
