The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling.
A big novel about a small town...
When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock.
Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.
Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils...Pagford is not what it first seems.
And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity, and unexpected revelations?
Now the first cover is pretty simple. Yellow and red with white lettering and a black x in a check box. Very simple. The second though is the US Paperback version and it's a bit different. We see houses, and the font is different. There's different colors going on to play.
I really don't know which cover I would choose. I think I would go with the second one (although the UK paperback version is so cool) but what do you guys think? Vote down below and let's see which is the winner!
