good & badwell... 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.

Not upto the expectationWhen 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.

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.

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.

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.

Dissapointing, Morbid & forcedThis 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.

Amazing workGot the book last evening...Thanks a ton Flipkart for it...Haven't been able to stay away from it since then...It is no Potter...but it never was supposed to be...her natural flair for storytelling in unbelievable...You have to read it to experience it...Another bestseller on its way...

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 BeginPagford, 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 avoidableI 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
