This is a beautifully written story, reminding us once again how easily things can go wrong, even when we're minding our own business, thinking we're living good lives. Not only is the warden a good man, but he does everything he can to make up for the wrong he's accused of doing, In some way, he's the "everyman" who is going about his life in the best way he can, when someone else comes along and spoils it. Intertwined relationships only send the suspense higher. I enjoyed listening to this story partly because the narrator is excellent. I'll be looking for other books by Timothy West, and I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys authors like Anthony Trollope. I'm going to listen to all the Barchester Towers series.
Would absolutely listen to it again, a wonderful story about mid Victorian life in an English Cathedral city..
Too many to count, was all great.. Sadness at the ending was well written and performed..
Loved the way it was all done but he made the Rev. Harding so much like I'd picture him, he made him seem really sympathetic and a truly Christian man..
It's long but yes I would.. Love it so much and am slowly getting the rest of the Barsetshire Chronicles as audiobooks read by Timothy West..
Nothing except I have found a new classic author to love :D
I would like to read the rest of The Chronicles of Barsetshire The characters are interesting and the story and issues have relevance to current events. Although this book is fairly short, it was a bit long-winded, and I found that I had to listen carefully to capture all the nuances.
A splendid story, with splendid narration. Utterly enchanting from beginning to end. Trollope is timeless. No one wrote with more wit, understanding, and capacity about both politics and religion.
The archdeacon was done to perfection.
Impossible to do so with Trollope! This is a book meant to be savored, and listened to again and again.
Reading a book is always better than listening to it. No question. But who has the time? I am thrilled to have discovered Audible.com because now I can go through the whole of the world's great literature - while I am doing other things I have to do! In the case of Trollpe read by Timothy West, it doesn't get much better than this.
I love Trollope's intelligent, natural dialogue. And of course his humor, and his morality.
West is a great actor, absolutely superlative.
Goodness and Folly
Not really. I'd love to have longer, better poetry selections to choose from. Josef Brodsky, Anna Akhmatova, Baudelaire. WITHOUT music and commentary!Thank you.
