Cannonball Read V: Book #1/52
I think this book is best read by going into it without thinking that it was written by J.K. Rowling. I know it’s been said to death, but this is definitely not Harry Potter. The Casual Vacancy starts off with the death of Barry Fairbrother. His death was sudden and now everyone is plotting to see who will get his seat on the town council. There’s a lot of politics in this book, which is probably why I didn’t like it as much as I wanted to.
