The Casual Vacancy - J.K. Rowling I read this book as slowly as the events in it. I think the main problem with the book is that it explains ordinary life so well that you wish a wizard would appear and make it all exciting - much like real life. In the end I enjoyed it and I'm glad I read it, but I wouldn't recommend it to friends.
