Start your review of Una vacante imprevista Write a review Shelves: reads J. Just look at my t-shirt in my profile picture. I would also redo medical school in a heartbeat if only Hogwarts offered a med school curriculum. Later we have iron-pumping Dudley hang out at deserted playgrounds, taking pride in physically abusing small children. Okay, having got the Potter references and tasteless humor out of my system, I can start my actual review.

The Casual Vacancy is a book about a seemingly quaint English town of Pagford which, to the dismay of many well-meaning citizens, has a less than desirable area known as the Fields you know, one of those neighborhoods filled with drugs, drugs users, drug dealers, and terrifying poverty.

That kind of neighborhood. What the rest of Padford sees the neighborhood of the Fields as. So the well-meaning town officials are locked in the battle that involves either keeping the Fields or shuffling it off onto a neighboring town, and also whether to keep or to close a local methadone clinic.

And when Barry, one of the town councillors, dies because of an unfortunately timed brain aneurysm, leaving a town council seat unoccupied, the real ugly of small town politics rears its head.

Add to the mix surly teenagers, drugs, sex, casual rape, bullying, domestic violence, lies, cheating, indifference, prejudice, self-mutilation, neglect, verbal abuse, desperation, almost-murder - and you have some idea of what The Casual Vacancy is about. And none of it is even remotely magical.

It is really just a sketch of a bit of small-town English society, quite nicely done. But hey - if character studies are not your cup of Earl Grey, you will definitely doze off over the plus pages of this novel. Luckily for me, this is a genre I enjoy. It was never intentional. They simply had very different notions of what ought to take up most space in life.

Get off my lawn, I scream, get off my lawn! Everyone else, whether antagonistic or repulsive, felt firmly set on their unremarkable chosen road; Fats, on the other hand, was caught in a spiral of finding himself while quite deliberately hurting people around him, and I found it to be one of the most painful parts of the book. Authenticity, as Fats Wall, a middle-class suburban teenager, sees it. Rowling is definitely NOT a one-hugely-popular-series wonder.

No, this woman can definitely write very well and with properly placed punctuation! Her prose is well-chosen, simple, and very non-distracting. As a writer, she never demands attention, never jumps out with a writing gimmick, never over-emphasizes her cleverness; she instead tells her story in an even and well-modulated voice, occasionally full of sadness, occasionally humorous but never overwhelming.
