I so prefer Anthony Trollope female characters! I find Dickens prefers his ladies to look down and keep quiet.

Reminiscent of 'Star Trek'. A lot of suspense and fun. The narrator was a bit over the top at some points but overall well done. His style did suit the character. A great listen.

The story is good, entertaining, somewhat original (the 'sick' did remind me of zombies), but what really stood out were the characters. Just loved them! A great, fun listen!

I liked the Plantagenet Palliser storyline in that people today must deal with decisions regarding life quality versus job prestige.
I was a bit disappointed with the Ferdinand Lopez storyline. I really did not feel that it was characteristic of that type of character to choose that way of ending life. I think that he would more convincingly have taken some others with him.
Nevertheless, as always, a very entertaining book! Well read by Timothy West.

This book validates that well worn phrase "the luck of the Irish". The great metropolis, London, is Phineas' oyster. This poor, son of an Irish doctor, has prime ministers, beautiful wealthy women at his feet. What a guy, what a story. I just loved listening to it. Thank you Mr West for the great narration and thank you Mr Trollope for the great and so witty story.

Incredibly entertaining. I felt he gave away a bit of the plot mid-novel but all in all a good listen.

Great ending to a great series!
The narrator did have quite a chalenge: so many characters and so many dragons to give voices to.
I was very happy with the way Paolini painted out the aftermath of the final battle...but I would have liked a different ending for the Nasuada/Mortag story line.

As usual, I was completely entertained with the narrator as well as the story of this Anthony Trollope novel. The characters are so alive. I usually listen to books-on-ipod when I am sewing: I found myself stopping just to really listen to the action of this novel!

I can only download Part 1 of this book. I've tried over and over again to download the second and third part but they refuse to import! What to do?
