The Casual Vacancy

By JK Rowling

Quite the opposite of Harry Potter, Casual Vacancy is not very fun to listen to. The book is basically a Wes Anderson, dysfunctional family story without a character or two you learn to love regardless. The story is of a small town in England. There seems to be a vacancy around a town hall position that has opened up, though I could be wrong. The audiobook consisted of mini stories of several families. There isn't really a focal point of this story, Fats Wall is kind of the anti-hero. He smokes does the horizontal polka, and acts as "authentic" as possible. I've read that they are making a TV series out of this, I promise it won't be worth watching. This is my first bad book review, sorry to bring you down. Rowling must have wrote this book pre-soul-sell.
