The Casual Vacancy
At the end of the day, it was just ok. All right. Nothing spectacular. I haven’t read any of the Harry Potter books, so I can’t compare or contrast the writing styles and storylines, though I’m sure you can find approximately 5000 people doing that on Goodreads alone.
It earns about 3.5/5 stars from me. It’s nothing to write home about and better books are definitely available that deal with similar subject matter.
