Read from August 24 to October 21, 2011

Done!!! This was my first Trollope (which is a fun thing to write) and I really liked it. I had gotten it into my head that Trollope was going to read like Dickens, with whom I have a love/hate relationship, and so I've been avoiding Trollope. Actually, Trollope reads more like an extended Jane Austen novel. I was not expecting so much wit and giggle-worthy one liners. One thing I will criticize though, this book could have been about 100 pages shorter. Trollope apparently had a self-imposed word count goal per day and never went back and re-read his previous work, so he repeats himself. A lot.
