I dont have anything against the crudeness of the language, but it somehow does not fit the story in my head!!!
The secret they reveal one could not expect, real life is horrid. When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock. I could not read uba book.
A big novel about a small town, The Casual Vacancy is J. Maybe they’re reading it for the pleasure of self-inflicted pain, but I assume most readers are not in that camp.

Not even a little bit. Even the children in this book are without moral fiber. It was beautiful, and gave so much more meaning to everything.

Not only am I not hooked to the story at this point okay, there’s not even really a story at this pointI find the characters a little repulsive, and the pages are littered with swear words and not minor ones, or just British ones and many uncomfortable “realistic” things–innuendo and worse–that modern authors “have” to put in their books.
When I list it out like that, it sounds worse and dirtier than it is, I think, because while all of these things imprwvista addressed, most of them aren’t developed beyond a glancing mention or a quick scene or two. Rowling’s underclass characters are not bad, ipmrevista they were put together by the richest novelist in history, but it’s a pity that they all use a kind of generalised, Dickensian lower-order-speak, that belongs more to literary custom than anything anyone ever says: I finished it last night and slammed the book shut, angry and disgusted with myself for wasting having spent a couple hours drowning in the cesspool of JK Rowling’s imagination.
The Casual Vacancy is Rowling deciding in her junior year of high school that she doesn’t want to be the quiet good girl anymore, so she goes out and dyes her hair some shade of neon and starts dressing all in black and listening to screamo and leaves her debate club and choir friends for the poetic crowd.
His death creates a “casual vacancy” on the parish council, and the forces of darkness, led by Howard Mollison, the obese delicatessen owner, see their chance to parachute in one of their own.
Rowllng Narrativa Ottobre So here’s to hoping this one will be. She forgot about the humanity in humans. That’s not a bad thing at all; they were written for children, so it was fitting. However said change had little to no effect on the body copy of the novel.
If imrevista no-name author had written this thing, it would have sunk like a stone in the depths of Amazon’s cold ocean. Thoughts I’ve came up with after struggling my way to page. Just a bunch of depressed English folks grumbling about how much they hate each other while all the teenagers are drowning in orwling pheromones. K, you are truly great. Show 25 25 50 All.

Una vacante imprevista Volume of Letras de bolsillo. From Harry to Snape to Narcissa Malfoy, there were so many tangible shades of people, some more good and some more bad, but at the end of the day, with the exception of Lord Voldemort, which was a characterization in itself they all had some humanity in them.
It seems unfair to compare it to that world of magic that made her famous. Rowling isn’t an amazing author, because she is. Cutesypoo attempt at projecting a dull normalcy? Would I have bought this book after reading the description if another name was on the cover? It kills me that she couldn’t do that here. That is, until I found out that absolutely all the characters in this book are like that.
Return to Book Page. The town of Pagford is a picturesque English village in my mind, much like something out of Midsomer Murders. That’s what I vacantw so. Rowling does a lot of character development and little plot development, but when the plot vacabte unfolds, it is all worth it. This review has been hidden because it contains rwoling. I know this is her attempt at serious realistic fiction, but ironically, I feel like there was more realism in the Harry Potter series.
She also could have chosen to simply be more creative instead of trying to be another Franzen or Duncan both good in their own spheres, but this is J. I decided to edit my entire review and start from scratch.

Bad stuff happens, etc. I’ll admit that the only reason that I read this book is because I adore J. And then, like an episode of Spongebob Squarepants, my eyeballs bulged out of my head and exploded into flames from sheer excitement.
And all the conflict was just kind of subdued. I get what she was trying to do here, I just don’t feel that she accomplished it at all.

Mitford became Rowling’s heroine, and Rowling subsequently read all of her books. Rowling was writing an adult book, I was thrilled. The claustrophobic horror is nicely done: Rowling” on the cover. Since I only with a lot of struggling read up to page.
