    "get the other one"

    This narrator is awful. The book is Trollope's usual wonderfulness--get the one narrated by Simon Vance.

    "Love, a Little Adventure, a Pig-headed Heroine"

    I have to admit Fro Gibson is not quite my favorite narrator but after a period of time with any reader, it is the story which must fall or stand on its own merits. As long as a narrator is consistent and Fro Gibson is that, I have learned to tolerate and sometimes even like some very singular readers. In this case, I have not quite reached that stage of flawlessness. In any event, Ms. Gibson has the merit of reading books which others pass up. For that, I am grateful.

    How did one man keep all these characters and story lines in order without ever losing a thread or a character? Trollope does know how to keep the story line tantalizingly just ahead of the reader. Miss Lilly Dale is still pig headed and refused a sensible course of behavior. It only took him two or three thousand pages for Pete's sake, but I think I remember the Johnny Eames-Lilly Dale affair finally coming to a conclusion more to my tastes. I bet these Trollope stories sold many newspaper copies to some very interested readers impatient for his next installation. Trollope stories were sold by the pound so speak, the greater number of pages between the opening line and the conclusion, the better because the story could be spread over as many newspaper editions as possible.
