Casual Vacancy in the bookstore in Warsaw

Casual Vacancy in a bookstore in Warsaw

So, there are christmas sales here in Poland. And special christmas premieres – products aimed to be launched during a perfect period, when hype rises along with demand for items that are not bought very often. Like books.

And in one of the biggest bookstores in Warsaw, Poland, there is a special stand with the latest novel by J.K. Rowling – The Casual Vacancy. The sign suggests it’s “the best present”.

If you were going to read this book, I assure you it’s worth it. But don’t buy it to anyone for Christmas. Why, you’d ask.

Well, some people see nothing wrong in buying someone a book on eugenics as a present. Even I bought one for my girlfiend! But many people wouldn’t find it suitable to put under the christmas tree a book about:

  • rape,
  • drugs,
  • rape again,
  • domestic violence (tough one),
  • disilussion,
  • and so on.

This book really is for adults only. And it doesn’t go well with christmas atmosphere.
