The Casual Vacancy

Some people love it, some people hate it: let's drop our expectations for another Harry Potter and find out what J.K. Rowling's novel for adults is really about.

The book is 512 pages, but has been called "an insanely compelling page-turner."

If you don't finish it, join us anyway!

There is a small parking lot right in front of the Wine Encounter. When you go in, head past the bar and you will find us in the back room.

    If anyone wants to know the next book is "snow child" I've already started it- it's GOOD! :)

    Ladies, I am so sorry I can't make it tonight, especially after this was my recommendation. I too am only about 50 pages in, and I'm hoping it gets better! I need to help a friend tonight, or I would be there! Enjoy!

    I stopped reading the book because I was not enjoying it hence why I won't make it to the meet up. I look forward to seeing what our next book will be

    Another book club has resulted in a conflict. As I have heard about this book but not the other, I have to choose between them - ugh and boo!

    Is anyone else having a hard time getting "into" the book? I've read about 30% of it and I'm having a hard time staying interested. I'm wondering if any of you other ladies were experiencing the same thing...

      Oh no! I haven't started reading it yet. How disappointing!

      I started it months ago and had the same feeling. This group looks like a ton of fun, so I'm giving it another try. Maybe JK's just not as fun when writing about muggles?
