I just love Anthony Trollope. Oh, and Miss Dunstable! All of these characters have become my friends, especially with Simon Vance as the voice of Trollope.
There are really 5 separate books. The relationships between each are tenuous at best. I found myself looking for the threads rather than enjoying the story.
Would not recommend
A Classic story told by the Classiest Reader. Thoroughly enjoyed The Foundation Series so many years later.
After downloading and listening for a while, I searched to see what else the narrator had done. It turns out this was read years ago, I guess before narrators really became accomplished actors.
I'm afraid to say I did not even finish the first volume. Maybe I'll give Dickens another chance with a more modern reader.
Believable until the climax, but really enjoyable listening.
Whether it's personal knowledge from his time in government, or just a great imagination, the author has a fascinating insight to our very near future.
This book is a wake up call reminding us that all of the risks involved in the internet which we've all come to love, hate, and depend on, are still unimaginable.
