Yes. I have enjoyed reading the whole "Palliser" sries by Trollope, but the two books about our hero - Phineas Finn were the most enjoyable. Set in the late 1880's they are a gentle satire about the "game" of politics that resonates today.
Before reading Phineas Redux, readers should try Phineas Finn as this is the story of his first foray into politics, while Phineas Redux is his return.
There were many moments, but the whole book was an ejoyable journey into a different time and palce.
Well written story; well told
While the plot is good; the enjoyment for me is in the telling.
Like many peiople I
The whole series gives a wonderful picture of 14th century England. It is also provides a peep into customs, religion and the basics of forensics and criminal psychology. Reading in chronological order provides a good insight into a civil war not often written about.
