Encontrar a manta, aquecer o chocolate, ligar o aquecedor…
Find the blanket, melt the chocolate, turn on the heat…

Desligar o telefone, apagar a televisão…
Turn off the phone and the TV…

E ler um livro.
And read a book.

Casual vacancy (a.k.a. Uma morte súbita, 2012), J.K. Rowling

Acolhido com enorme expectativa, este surpreendente romance sobre uma pequena comunidade inglesa aparentemente tranquila, Pangford, começa quando Barry Fairbrother, o conselheiro paroquial, morre aos quarenta poucos anos. A pequena cidade fica em estado de choque e aquele lugar vazio torna-se o catalisador da guerra mais complexa que alguma vez ali se viveu. No final, quem sairá vencedor desta luta travada com tanto ardor, duplicidade e revelações inesperadas?
Um livro a não perder.

When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little 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 town’s 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? Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.
