November Book Club Selection: The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling

  • Delicious

Our November book club selection is…..

Released on September 27, 2012 as JK Rowling’s first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy has been getting some serious buzz.

When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little 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 façade 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 town’s 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? Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.

We hope you’ll join us for this month’s book club selection! For those of you who have heard about this book, are you excited to read it? What do you think of Rowling’s departure from her novels geared toward young adults?
