Read in February, 2009

This is the 4th in the 6 Palliser novels by Anthony Trollope, but I consider it to be the sequel to the second in the series, "Phineas Finn." In this book we continue with "our hero" (as the author rightly calls him) but this time, unlike the first book where we see his meteoric rise, this one is full of woe and is much darker. But it's a wonderful book. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I might look into the rest of the books. But how could they possibly be as good as these two books?

Phineas continues to do the right thing, even though it costs him dearly. But what an example -- especially these days! It all gets tied up nicely with these words: "At last!" You'll have to read the 700 pages to get to that point, but they are well worth it.
