Description

First, a warning: If you haven't read any Trollope, start with The Warden; it's the first in a series of which Barchester is second. Next, a rather shocking warning: Trollope may be as addictive as a soap opera. It has plenty of the right ingredients-archly drawn characters and plots that enmesh the listener in the daily ups and downs of those characters' lives. Of course, the great crevasse that divides your average daytime soap from Barchester Towers is the elegance and skill of the writer and the witty invention from which he draws his charming and classic fantasies.

Professional reviews

"With his "Barsetshire" series, set in a fictitious west-country county, Anthony Trollope established the novel sequence in English letters. BARCHESTER TOWERS, the second book in the series, concerns the struggle for diocesan control between the archdeacon's cunning chaplain and the wife of the new bishop. Very funny stuff--to Victorians. Narrator Timothy West has the technique, versatility and sense of place to give a fine, idiomatic performance, but not quite the strength of personality to make us give a hoot about the characters and their concerns.
