The creator of Harry Potter is back with her first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy. When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly, the empty seat he leaves on the town’s council becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the seemingly idyllic town of Pagford has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity, and unexpected revelations?

Blackly comic and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy arrives September 27, 2012, but you can pre-order your copy of the Kindle book now.

  1. US$19.99 for a Kindle book? Ouch. Amazon is listing the hardcover at US$21.00. I’ll wait until my library has it.

    • I know. I don’t spend $19.99 on any ebook, with the exception of omnibus editions — like The Lord of the Rings, which was $21 when I bought it — it’s now about half that. Still, I very rarely spend more than $6 or $7 on an ebook, and usually between $1.99 and $3.99. For a book I’m really dying to read, I may spend $10.

      It doesn’t even appeal to me particularly. If I read it, I’ll check it out from the library.

  2. It seems rather expensive at the moment, and I have to agree that I’ll probably get it from the library, too. Judging from the summary, it’s a very different kind of book from HP.
