Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I don’t see any reason why it should ever come to an end, and everyone I know is always dreading the last number.” Elizabeth Gaskell, English novelist, in 1860, praise for the series
“As if some giant had hewn a great lump out of the earth and put it under a glass case, with all its inhabitants going about their daily business.” Nathaniel Hawthorne, American novelist, praise for the series
“Narrator David Shaw–Parker uses his rich, resonant voice to establish and differentiate the characters through tone and accent, giving the impression of a full-cast performance. He excels naturally at male voices…[and] effectively establishes a personality for the story’s narrator—ingratiating, tolerant, amused—who is also a character. Occasional slowness and repetition in the text are offset by Shaw–Parker’s acting ability, his expression of sense and feeling, and his ability to imbue his reading with emotional warmth. The story, and Shaw–Parker’s performance, are deeply involving. Most listeners will find themselves caught up and entertained throughout this long audiobook.” AudioFile

Author Bio: Anthony Trollope

Author Bio: Anthony Trollope

Anthony Trollope (1815–1882) grew up in London. He inherited his mother’s ambition to write and was famously disciplined in the development of his craft. His first novel was published in 1847 while he was working in Ireland as a surveyor for the General Post Office. He wrote a series of books set in the English countryside as well as those set in the political life, works that show great psychological penetration. One of his greatest strengths was his ability to re-create in his fiction his own vision of the social structures of Victorian England. The author of forty-seven novels, he was one of the most prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era.
