Unbelievable price, excellent quality, looks and feels like a royal book! Top it with an amazing story and you get this product :)

Unbelievable price of INR 124 including delivery charges (INR 40). My best purchase yet on Flipkart! The hardcover edition of this book has an almost velvety feel to it. The font size is apt and the paper quality is very high with those smooth-at-touch but rough textured pages. A must buy if you get… (View complete review)

Nice book

It is not a fast paced book, no thrill no suspense no romance no action, it is full of life... the way people live, some secrets ,some guilt, small joys, big sorrows, I loved this book to the core. And would suggest all those who love reading.

Got a great offer from flipkart for this one. a…

Buy only when its on sale

I bought it for 100 bucks on flipkart. I KNOW. ITS CRAZY. But it was worth the money. I adore her writing and im not someone who is going to compare this work of hers with HARRY POTTER cause both are completely different genre's written by the same author which doesn't make HER disgusting :P

good & bad

well... lets face it. The only reason I'll pick up a 700 page drama on the backdrop of a council election in a dreamy English hamlet is because its written by her. and so i did.
I started the book with no biases and no expectations however, and was prepared to treat it as what it was.
I must say, the book was not disappointing.I loved the way she develops the characters, builds up the plot and slowly plunges into the story. She follows it up with some steamy suspense and drama and finishes with a whirlwind of climax, joining all the lose ends at the end - not very different from her classic Po

Not upto the expectation

When JKR said this book is for adults she really meant it. Full of drugs, sex, child abuse and politics, this book can give nightmares to her usual Harry Potter fans.

But whats disappointing in this book is not the adult content, but the insufficient or late description of the characters which doesn't help a reader in visualizing the character properly. Also the story has too many sub plots of people trying to screw each other.

No wand to wave the magic of hope!

THE CASUAL VACANCY, the much talked about novel of the renowned author J.K. Rowling, is nowhere similar to Harry Potter except the naming of one of the character - Barry Fairbrother (whose name Harry had taken in HP7 during the wedding), around whom the story of the fictional town of Pagford revolves.
The novel is a 503 pages of tormented lifestyles, drugs, abuse and adulteration. When J.K. Rowling said that she was writing a novel for adults, what she actually meant was, she is writing an Adult Novel - a novel full of sex and life. Not a single character in the novel could be called as a ro

Just. Great.

The fact that there wasn't a speck of Rowling's style in the dark-humored literary volume dearly anticipated by many, suggests one of having done an exceptional job at being an author. And to know that the fiction itself didn't disappoint; being put mildly, I absolutely adored every instance, character, scene and the final outcome gathered. Hats off to you, Jo.

My first badge of gratitude: our dear Flipkart. I received my order ON the date of release, which was more than I'd dared to expect.

Well, it might not be easy to lay down precise words to summarize all of which one can garner ou

Expected more from Rowling! Received less !

I bought this book by October 25th,2012 after almost 90% of the people completed it. I mean both the so-called-Rowling fans as well as the adult fiction lovers, with me being the second one.

I wanted to know why it has been given quite a mixed review. So I bought it and read it.
It took me a week to complete it as my office timings were tight.

I would like to tell you that the book has no story at all!!! No Story!! Trust me!!

I am the kind of reader who loves screenplay very much and it is quite good in this book up and until Part five. After that, it becomes a huge disaster!

Dissapointing, Morbid & forced

This is JK Rowling trying far too hard to create a story. It was arduous to read through 500 pages of too many characters, disjointed sub-plots. I was extremely dissapointed after having enjoyed reading the Harry Potter series. Utter waste of money & time! Time for Rowling to retire perhaps.

On time delivery by flipkart!!!

The saga begins with Barry after everyone's favourite Harry. Thanks to flipkart for pre-booking and timely delivery. This book is surely not meant for children this time but the children who have grown-up reading Potter series are no more children in 7 years time. So J.K.Rowling getting the same targeted audience in The Casual Vacancy.

Lets Begin

Pagford, the place for the action, just turned to page 5...and the story starts to unfold...looking pretty dark by the use of words..totally not a potter story..it wasn't supposed to be one..the cover is amazingly good...those who are expecting potter like writing are set to be disappointed..this is something entirely different..more dark and cruel..do not go by the reviews on guardian or telegraph...this is a different world altogether..

Best avoidable

I wish this was not by JKR, I am finding it difficult to move from one chp to another....honestly regret buying the same and am putting it back on the book self 'not even half read' the book really tests one's patience, one expects JKR to be fast paced...no way close to Harry Potter series...guess the expectations were high from JKR
