Book list for October 2013

Not so much a book list as a book entry, but hey.

The Casual Vacancy. J. K. Rowling*

How was it? It didn't get very good reviews.

You know, I had a whole paragraph written about it in a notebook somewhere and I just didn't even feel like typing it up. The characters were real and some of them were sympathetic, but I don't want to revisit a single one of them. It was a good book, and an interesting book, but it wasn't very enjoyable. And if I'm going to read about a small gossipy English village then I want to enjoy it! She clearly had a lot of things to say, and I understand choosing the vehicle she did, but what I don't get is the *why* of it all.
