    1. I am definitely hooked on Anthony Trollop. I said in other reviews of his books that the only reason he is not as popular as Dickens or Austen is that his novels are too long and most readers don’t want to tackle that much. For someone who pumped out 47 novels I think he might have wanted to pare them down a little so he could write more. But I can tell he fell in love with his characters and wanted every inch of them revealed and then he couldn’t bear to give them up. This was never so evid [...]


    2. My absolute favorite series of books ever. The Warden is a little slow to start, but once you're in, you're in for good. Bucolic, ecclesiastical, gloves and fans, what else could one want.


    3. Trollope has his typical long-winded writing style that could use a good editor, but his story lines are always intriguing and draw you through the muddle of his explanations. Dissapointing that the main character's fate is told before the circumstances occur. Enjoyable, yet felt like "work" reading this.


    4. I got a lovely Modern Library hardcover edition of this in one of my abundant local bookstores. I've read nearly all of Dickens (who Trollope refers to as "Mr. Popular Sentiment." LOL!!!) so it was high time to embark on Trollope. I've dedicated my adventures on this site to all things Trollope as I could not possibly list all the books I've read. You have to start somewhere.


    5. The BBC production was excellent and the huge cast were a joy to listen to. However, the stories themselves are predictable palour dramas some of which are a tad too saccharin for me. It took me a long time to finish this audiobook because I could only take so much without needing a break. Would recommend to anyone who adores Jane Austen and/or BBC Radio 4 serial 'The Archers'.


    6. I spent the winter of 2002 in a very isolated mountain town where it snowed every day for five months (at least it seemed like it). I read this whole series and not only did it keep me sane, I enjoyed every moment. If you are a Jane Austen lover, you will love these.


    7. I will NOT be reviewing the Kindle edition--but they didn't give an option in actual paper. When I finish the series, I hope to write a complete review detailing the series and why they are important to today's reader.


    8. Very enjoyable series. I'm now a big fan of Trollope. His style is more comfortable than that of Austen or Dickens. These books may not have reached the best by those authors but they are worth spending time with.



    9. Although Trollope isn't a literary eminence, his company is enjoyable, and I certainly wouldn't have read all 6 of these novels if I didn't enjoy his company. Indeed, the secret of his literary charm is his self-presentation as the narrator. What's striking to me about his characters is the degree to which their action is guided by scruples, which, along with their apparent lack of genitals, makes them quite uncontemporary. I liked the last volume in the series almost better than the rest. The w [...]


    10. I've reviewed the individual volumes serially. Old or Auld Rural England and (mostly) its clergy. Not quite as sharp as the Palisser novels perhaps because the social terrain is too narrow. But still a great achievement with a lot of memorable characters, Crawley and Mrs Proudie especially. Trollope is just a little too long winded to get five stars. 4.5 instead.


    11. Long, leisurely readA long, slow read sometimes but so much interest and fun in it. Trollope is wonderful at painting portraits of people to show their best sides but their "realness" at the same time. I thoroughly enjoyed this.


    12. Trollope for me is relaxing bedtime reading. I hope that isn't an insult. I reread many of his works over time and the Barsetshire series is my favorite, of course.These are lovely studies of the politics of a cathedral town and the related people of all stripes of life.



    13. How to review a classic and successfully add something new that will pull more readers to a good book?is review is a work in progress


    14. The Barchester Chronicles is in two parts; part 1 being the warden and part 2 Barchester towers. It is a story that is about a man who is one of the most endearing and loveable characters that i have ever encountered within English literature and someone who holds a mirror up to us all, (that being the one and only Mr. Harding who is warden of Hirems hospital). He is a model of honesty, compassion and gentleness but who is wrongfully charged as a corrupted man and even when this falsehood is rec [...]


    15. I read all six of these novels over the past few months, the first 3 while travelling in Italy and France. I’m not going to review them individually, as they make a more-or-less coherent whole and their similarities are numerous. Overall I quite enjoyed them, although there were places where the overlapping tales got a little too similar. The wry look at the social lives of rural ecclesiastics in mid 19th century England is mostly amusing, but Trollope is capable of deeper insight as well. I w [...]


    16. Very sad to finish all six of these novels which take place in the fictional town/county? of Barchester. I was really immersed in the lives of so many of the characters - Lily Dale, John Eames, Eleanor Bold/Arabin, Bishop and Mrs. Proudie, Dr. Thorne, Grace Crawley, Archdeacon Grantley too many to name. Some of the main characters from one novel reappear later in another. Some of Trollope's characters are too good or too bad to be true, but most of them are somewhere in between. If you love long [...]


    17. Love, love, love these books!I am sorry to have discovered these books so late in life because I have fewer years to reread them. The characters have become dear to me and I will miss them terribly now that I've finished their story. The books are gems; so beautifully written; so compelling. I don't understand how a book in which almost nothing happens can be a page turner, yet the author has made the everyday lives if ordinary people unforgettable. These books will go on my favorites shelves wi [...]


    18. Sick with a bad cold--this sort of thing is perfect, entertaining but not too demanding. A man who knows how to write well, and sheds light on an earlier era. Rather dispiriting for a woman, tho.Decided to label it unfinished. I will never finish this book--it's just too slow, too much time spent on repetitious speculations that add nothing to the plot. People complain that Jane Austen thinks only of marriage. The same could be said for Trollope, except he's not as witty as she is, and certainly [...]


    19. Selon moi, l'auteur a essayé de copier Jane Austen, mais du point de vue d'un homme. Il décrit en détails minutieux les aspects les moins intéressants de l'histoire, la législation, décortique le cheminement de la pensée des personnages, mais uniquement sur les aspects non-importants. Telle une tragédie grecque, tous les moments importants se passent hors scène et sont coupés. L'auteur se croit obligé d'être omniprésent pour défendre ses stupides personnages. Très belle prose.


    20. I have finished reading the first of the Barchester Novels, The Warden. I had watched these as movies on BBC and enjoyed them. I wanted to get the "full version" so I am reading the books. Mr. Harding, the central character, is a very likable person. Anthony Trollope spends a lot of time talking about side issues, so sometimes it takes a little perserverance to keep going, but his stories are interesting.


    21. I've gotten through two of the six and will be taking a little break. I really like Trollope's ability (somewhat like Dickens) to capture a time with his often two-dimensional but aptly symbolic cast of characters each representing a role in the grander scheme, but (also like Dickens) having been paid by the word he often rambles on a bit with more thoughts on the political and social issues of his day than I care to follow.


    22. I am halfway through this series, and I'd give it a 4 or 5 if I didn't sometimes think Trollope was being paid by the word! There are entire chapters that could be condensed to a few pages without any loss of literary value. Otherwise, Trollope is amusing and certainly not shy about making sport of people's foibles.


    23. The language is typically Victorian: circuitous and verbose. There is often a lot of detail that's not particularly necessary for the story line - a modern editor would recommend a lot of cutting. Nevertheless, it's worth enduring these faults for the sake of the rich character descriptions and story line, and Trollope's deep understanding of human nature.


    24. I totally enjoy anything by Anthony Trollope. I had first watched the Barchester Chronicles in the video version, which I highly recommend. Simon Raven wrote the script; he's a brilliant screen writer and novelist.


    25. Very good BBC dramatisations of all the Barchester novels. Thoroughly enjoyed them all. The characters are great - Mrs Proudy is as unfogrettable as a Dickensian character. His women and men are pulled between duty, conscience and their hearts.


    26. Wickedly hilarious, but sharply observed and not without a message. Was there ever a better or more aptly named set of characters? The slippery Mr Slope, the haughty Mrs Proudie, the child-overburdened Mr Quiverful?
