East Valley Book Club March Meetup

For March, we have chosen The Casual Vacancy, by author JK Rowling. Here is what Amazon has to say:


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. See you there! Shelly Y. Hughes

    Sorry, I won't be joining you this time. I have had a really hard time finishing this book - the writing is good, but found the subject matter a little too depressing to make me want to keep reading. I don't want to come w/out having finished.

    I'm bowing out on this one for multiple reasons, one of which is that I tried to read this book awhile back and I just didnt' feel interested in it. Had I not had other reasons though I probably would have tried again. I don't own it, but I read part
