I wanted to like this book so much but it was utterly bland and tedious. The narrator was well chosen for such a waste of time.
I really enjoyed all the characters in this book. Intriguing story and now I am just awaiting the next in the series. Very atmospheric book...I felt that I was there. The characters are so real and I didn't want to leave them when the story was finished.
I enjoyed this story. The narrator is superb. The writing is imaginative and atmospheric. Great escapism.
This book seems to be well written and the narration is excellent. I simply did not enjoy the era.
This is the absolute pits! I listened for about an hour and thought that if I heard about any more slim waisted men with powerful thighs, I would lose the will to live.
A great yarn. The depravity of it all is brought to life by a fabulous narrator. Really good fun.
I listened to this brilliant performance after the completion of the series. The acting and script are excellent. Lots of humour are evoked by the performance and I found it to be highly entertaining and faithful to Trollope's work. Excellent.
This is a social commentary and uses humour and satire to make political points. It is well narrated and the story is entertaining. Not my favourite book but interesting.
The story is wonderful and describes the setting with a perfect amount of detail. The characters are fully developed and their foibles are both comical and infuriating but above all presented as people that we care deeply about as the story proceeds. Money and love play a part in the story. The moral questions of life are sifted and answered and although this all occurs in a time past, the universal nature of such struggles makes this book engrossing for today's reader. The narration is simply perfection.
The series is developed in this story. Human fragilities abound and philosophical problems are presented and examined. Marriage as a love match and an economic and practical matter are found in this and other Trollope novels. Manners and social gender roles are described and this adds to the story. A delightful addition to a fabulous series.
