    "Lily & co"

    Trollope writes the most wonderful women characters - far more varied and three-dimensional than Dickens - and makes them speak with individual voices. Timothy West manages to present each one so sympathetically and distinctively that it seems hard to believe they've been 'dead' for a century and a half or thereabouts. And he does the men just as well...the world-weary Adolphus, the testy and inarticulate Squire, the elderly but enthusiastic Earl and the half-baked but endearing not-hero, Johnny Eames.

    This novel is less political and less satirical than the others in the Barchester cycle, and you just surrender to the enjoyment of letting Trollope and West, between them, engage your sympathy and interest in these memorable characters and the drama that flows from them. Wonderful.

    "Great story and characters"
    Where does The Small House At Allington rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoyed listening to this, Timothy West is a great narrator, I got to know the characters and was upset when I reached the end. They were all real, sharing their emotions and thoughts and didn't want to lose them.

    I listened to it while on the bus going to work as I can't read while travelling - it makes me feel sick. The journey passed all too quickly.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Small House At Allington?

    Lily's reaction to the news of Adolphus in London. Most people might think it wasn't proper but I could understand how she felt and why.

    "Great Story - Well Read"

    Amongst my favourite audiobooks. Timothy West seems very well suited to reading Trollope and I would recommend this alongside all the others in the Barchester and Palliser Series. Other favourites are Ian holm reading The Wiman in White and Martin Jarvis's telling of David Copperfield

    "Brillant"

    I have come to Trollope late in life (as many people seem to to do) and am now an absolute fan. This may have something to do with Timothy West who is the perfect narrator. Excellent.
