All of the characters in this book are flawed, some seriously. You will find yourself casting judgement on an individual, only to have your opinion receded by the next chapter.

Gritty and controversial themes are explored throughout. This is a great story-telling. The prejudice, the judging, the conversation behind closed doors, the circumstances surrounding the addiction and poverty and dependencies, all of it, is so spot on.

The complicated inter-relationships of small communities, the clash of cultures that is such a feature of the present day life and the pettiness of some of the local politicking, again, J.

Rowling does an incredible job describing it all. I also loved the Dickensian approach she made here, of telling the story of a town, rather than a character.

It is a marvelous example of just how good an author she is when she weaves a rich tapestry of characters and situations together in a masterful and undeniably thought-provoking way.

Don't pick up this book if you are expecting the same sort of Harry Potter style because it is quite graphic with a lot of swear words.

If you enjoy reading a gritty story with characters anyone can relate to, then this is the book for you. Read it and judge for yourself View all 17 comments.

First off, a confession, I was predisposed to not so much like this book. I had read many positive reviews yes; even so, positive or negative, they all shared a common theme.

That is to say lack of plot. This is character development at its finest and even Pagford the community, comes forward in that undertaking.

Rowling knows how to set a scene, letting it wash over you warm and slow as you read, and learn more about the people that live within these pages.

The author certainly knew them, each and every one, and then set out to draw us, the reader, a picture. It works. You can step into this story and it all seems so easy, a mere sweep of her pen.

Did I have favourites, you bet. They were all ruddy brilliant. It begins with the untimely death of Barry Fairbrother.

We feel it in our gut. Gripped and comfortable with the language, the flow, the pace, the place and the people: comfortable in the claw of a gifted story teller.

Beware though, the only magic you will find here lay in the power of each and every word that pulled me forward. I had to remind myself to slow down, to chew, and to savour.

This is the kind of book that wants reading, feet up, in front of a fireplace, with a glass of the good stuff by your side.

Now with 64 pages under my belt, my personal verdict is in: Did not Finish. It's not a badly written book, but what little I read I found dull and pedestrian, which surprised me more then anything given Rowling's richly imaginative mind.

In addition, the crude language seemed more forced then natural, almost as if Rowling needed to drive I didn't have any giddy expectations for Rowling's first foray into the world of adult fiction, but will admit to being curious as to how she would approach it.

In addition, the crude language seemed more forced then natural, almost as if Rowling needed to drive home the point that she was writing an A.

T piece of fiction rather then have the words make sense within the context of her characters and story if that makes any sense.

And on a purely personal note, I think the inclusion of the c-word in any work of literature not exclusively hard-core erotica is a lame excuse to look edgy.

Must be the new buzz word in the literary world, although to me it always denotes a lack of taste and style. My opinion only. You are welcome to disagree, as I'm obviously not the target reading audience for this genre whatever genre this is.

So take these scribblings more as observations then a proper review, and note that I am assigning no rating to it. My overall take on what little I read is that it's probably a so-so book to the right audience when all's said and done, but would never receive the hype it's gotten had John Smith written this and not J.

My only recommendation to anyone fan or not interested in this book would be to test drive it at the library before forking over your hard earned dough for it, and read some of the reviews coming in from readers who actually finished the book.

Afterwards, you may find you can't live without it permanently displayed on your bookshelves or e-reader. If so, good on you. Or you may find yourself bemused by the hype but glad you saved yourself a few dollars.

The novel is split into seven parts, the first depicting the aftermath of the death of local Pagford Parish Councillor, Barry Fairbrother, who suffers a burst aneurysm in the car park of a local golf course.

The inhabitants of the town share the news with their friends and relatives and chaos ensues. The problem arises in deciding whether local council estate 'The Fields' should remain as part of Pagford, or instead join the local city of Yarvil, a contentious debate in which Barry Fairbrother was passionately in favour of the former option; his death is seen by many as an opportunity to end the debate once and for all.

It took me a while to decide to read this book; I had really enjoyed the Harry Potter books but would not go so far as to call myself a fan of JK Rowling, and why would I be interested in her as an adult-novel writer anyway?

I'd seen a fair amount of negativity on reader loops; people didn't like the swearing, the book was too different from Harry Potter, there were too many characters so the story was confusing, etc.

And then when this novel won the Goodre Where I got the book: my local library. And then when this novel won the Goodreads Choice award for , didn't that just mean that JKR won the popularity contest?

Wasn't I just letting myself in for a disappointment after all the hype? And so on. I take it all back. Let me say three things at the outset: - this novel is officially my Big Surprise Read of ; - it goes on my list of the best novels I've read this year; - and, after all these years, I will now identify myself as a fan of JKR.

And one more note: I will not apologize for discussing the Harry Potter series in this review. I hope I can raise enough points to claim that The Casual Vacancy is completely consistent, artistically, with its much more famous younger cousin.

If you're having trouble with this book and you're American, I don't blame you. I've lived here long enough to understand that the dialect, the swearing and the peculiarly English way of viewing class may make this novel difficult to relate to.

It's an extremely English work; never, as far as I can recollect, has JKR made any concession to the huge and lucrative market across the Atlantic in her books.

Harry Potter worked in America because it's based in a fantasy England of steam trains, school uniforms, tuck shops, quaint villages and dark, mysterious olde-worlde London.

Not many Americans would be familiar with the Enid Blyton stories that provided such a vast pool of inspiration for Harry Potter, but I believe they would instinctively clue into that earlyth-century image of England as what they want England to be, rather than what it is.

The Casual Vacancy gets a whole lot closer to real England and therefore loses much of that advantage of instant accessibility.

Well, I'm a great many words into this review and I still haven't said what the book's about. It begins with the sudden death by aneurism of Barry Fairbrother, a Parish Councillor for the small town of Pagford.

Parish Councils, for those who don't know, are a basic unit of local government in non-urban England; their powers can have a considerable effect on the infrastructure and life of a country town.

In Pagford, the bone of contention is a low-income housing estate, the Fields, which by historical accident has ended up as a part of middle-class Pagford rather than being absorbed into the more urban conglomerate of Yarvil where, as far as most Pagfordians are concerned, it belongs.

They don't want what they see as a bunch of no-hopers sending their kids to the "good" Pagford schools and consuming an inordinate amount of the available social services and unemployment benefits.

A related issue is the survival of the addiction clinic, whose clients frequently come from the Fields; again, why support a service that is a burden on the middle class citizens of Pagford, who are far too upright and clean-living to need such help?

The death of Fairbrother--who grew up in the Fields and was a passionate advocate for its children--leaves a "casual vacancy" on the Parish Council, and the two sides of the debate over the Fields and the clinic muster their candidates.

While the adults in the novel's cast struggle with fitting local politics into their already messy lives, their teenage children have problems of their own.

Andrew's home is a nightmare because of his abusive, violent father; Fats's casual cynicism and pursuit of what he perceives as authenticity but most of us will view as shallow "coolness" will have a destructive effect.

Sukhvinder struggles with being the only academically weak member of a high-achieving Asian family and the self-loathing brought about by her victimization at the hands of classmates, Gaia is miserably displaced from her London home, and Krystal, who lives in the Fields, struggles to keep her junkie mother clean and look after her little brother.

The plethora of story lines means that JKR has to keep character development on pretty clear and unambiguous lines, so there's not a whole lot of nuance or big surprises in store.

Every adult has a predictably messy life and the adults, to my mind, are not as clearly or as sympathetically drawn as the teenagers.

The real star of the novel is the underdog Krystal Weedon, half-literate, neglected and abused but determined to make her life better in any way available to her.

Like Harry Potter she's both underdog fighting hero and sacrificial victim; unlike Harry she is, after Fairbrother's death, virtually friendless in a world where there's no magic to be wielded.

Out of all the characters I think this is the one that JKR really invests with complexity and pathos, and ironically Krystal, with her near-feral dialect and her f-bombs, will be the least accessible character to many readers.

It's a credit to JKR that she underscores Krystal's personhood and at the same time paints an accurate picture of how the middle-class characters see this courageous, powerless girl as a threat or an object of half-disgusted fascination.

In Harry Potter JKR magnifies class conflict into an all-out war between competing factions; in The Casual Vacancy the action is small-scale and the teenagers rebel and protest in very middle-class ways--getting drunk, smoking cigarettes and a little weed, scoping for sexual experience with that laser-like hormonal focus we probably all remember.

The adults in the novel are the ones who do the abstract thinking; the teenagers simply do , and their superior knowledge of computer skills allows them to take part in the parish council election in a retaliatory fashion that's effective because they understand their parents' weakest points and worst hypocrisies.

There's a touch of that role-reversal that we see in Harry Potter and, in fact, in many young-adult stories on TV and in film; the teenagers take control of the adult world from their useless, clueless parents.

The wish-fulfillment of the powerless? Only, in The Casual Vacancy there's no ultimate triumph. Above all I found that JKR's ability to tell a story and imagine a world kept me reading on for page after page when I'd decided I really was only going to read one more chapter.

A few days after finishing the novel I can see the points where I can criticize, but while I was reading it I was spellbound.

I've heard that this is the novel JKR really wanted to write and I'll concede that it probably wouldn't have stood a chance of being published back when she was an unknown.

If she had begun her career now, she might have self-published it and achieved a measure of success because it's well written and engaging, but she'd probably have remained an obscure English writer in the realist tradition.

Harry Potter has given her the chance to shape herself into, not necessarily Dickens as some of the hype has suggested, but certainly into a powerful force for social criticism in the form of readable, entertaining novels.

Gritty, realistic, layered portrait of a small town in crisis. In the fallout of parish councillor Barry Fairbrother's death, the stories of a diverse cast of unhappy people are woven together: some likeable, most not.

The upcoming election for Barry's empty council seat fuels a sea of pettiness, gossip, and self-interest, and long-simmering resentments come to a head.

Let me start off by mentioning, as everyone else has, that this is not Harry Potter. Muggles only. In addition to the conspicuou Gritty, realistic, layered portrait of a small town in crisis.

In addition to the conspicuous dearth of wizards, it lacks the kooky charm, sentimentality, and optimism of the other series.

Rowling is pretty unrecognizable. That said, as an adult novel that tackles sobering subjects like drug addiction, child abuse, and rape, it's bound to be a bit denser.

I didn't find it as shocking as some people did, though. Yes, there is profanity. Yes, there is violence. Yes, there is sexuality.

But it is never excessive or graphic or gimmicky. I got the sense that Rowling just wanted a no-holds-barred look at life in Pagford from all angles.

Omitting swear words or the more disturbing events would have seemed far less raw and honest. Multiple perspectives can be hard to pull off jarring, choppy, etc , but the transitions are executed smoothly.

The realistic, distinctive internal dialogue is the strong point of the novel, creating fully-realized and 3D characters you come to know very well.

But there are also some fundamentally well-intentioned but flawed folks that I enjoyed following around and seeking to understand Andrew, Parminder, Fats, etc.

All the characters feel, as Fats would say, authentic. The novel is slow-paced and drags sometimes , but it carries a sort of slow burn.

You detect certain tensions building and building and wonder what the culmination of those tensions will mean.

Every action has consequences that echo through the rest of the book. Ultimately, it's a fairly dark novel, but all the same, I felt reluctant to let the characters go at the end.

Which is always a good sign. View all 4 comments. Sep 27, J. I admit it! I gave up! Here's why: The reason we're all reading this book is because it says "J.

These goals would not be affected if one member of the GRC left, Mr Chan added. However it did not cater for instances where the minority race MP vacates their seat hence the SDP filed a suit to clarify the matter.

As of [update] , the New Zealand House of Representatives has 70 seats whose members represent geographical constituencies, and a further 52 seats selected from party lists.

A vacancy in any of the 70 "electorate seats" is filled through a by-election. The writ for the by-election must, in most circumstances, be issued within 21 days of the notification of the vacancy.

A by-election is not required if Parliament is due to expire within six months. By contrast, a vacancy in one of the "list seats" is filled by the next available candidate on the list submitted by the party holding that seat.

The term "casual vacancy" is not commonly used in the United States. A vacancy in the House of Representatives is filled by a special election.

The Constitution requires the executive authority i. The seventeenth amendment provides that vacancies in the Senate filled by an appointment by the governor unless the legislature of the state concerned has passed a law providing some other means to fill the vacancy, such as a popular election.
