Book-to-Film: The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling

The Casual Vacancy is being adapted for a BBC miniseries, and the first episode was released February 15th.  Though not an ideally romantic Valentines weekend show, I still am very interested in checking it out, though I haven't seen it yet.  Are you?




From People:

The first trailer for J.K. Rowling's inaugural foray into TV has arrived, and it offers a glimpse into the small English town of Pagford, where the series is set. 
Seemingly idyllic on the surface, "Everyone's got skeletons rattling in their cupboards," a voiceover intones.
"Behind the pretty facade," reads the show's official description, "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."

  1. I'm not sure, lol. I started the book last year, but then lost my steam about 100 pages in. I want to try reading it again some time. Maybe, the series would help me.

    1. You know, although I'm glad I read this book, I did not always enjoy the process of reading it. There are a LOT of heavy topics, and it can get really heavy. So I get that this book will really not be everyone's cup of tea. But, nevertheless, I am interested in the miniseries. Let me know if you watch any of it!

    1. You know, it's really not for everyone. Would you be interested in the miniseries, even if you're not interested in the book?
