Wanneer Barry Fairbrother onverwacht sterft, zijn de bewoners van Pagford geschokt. Pagford lijkt een idyllisch Engels plattelandsdorp, met een charmant marktplein en een oude abdij, maar achter die fraaie façade gaan grote conflicten schuil. Rijk tegen arm, tieners tegen hun ouders, vrouwen tegen hun echtgenoten, leraren tegen hun leerlingen...

In Pagford is niets wat het lijkt. De lege stoel die Barry achterlaat in de gemeenteraad is de aanleiding tot de grootste strijd die het dorp ooit heeft gekend. Wie zal zegevieren in deze verkiezingen vol opportunisme, valsheid en verbijsterende onthullingen?

Then I saw that HBO was making a mini-series out of it and I didn't want to watch it before I read it. What an incredible character study. Rowling connects the citizens in Pagford to one an...

4.5 Modern Austen
So I was a little slow getting around to reading this book. Honestly, it’s because the last four Harry Potter books felt, well, bloated to be honest. Well, this isn’t Harry Potter. It’s Jane Austen with teeth. And not vampire teeth either. It’s the claws that ...
