A bit of a tome this one, so couldn't lug it everywhere. But very enjoyable, gave me a better idea of the many-layered man that Trollope was. A loud, awkward man, perceived either as 'vulgar' or 'honest and straightforward' depending on the person, o ...more

Five stars for sheer fun and adrenalin. This guy could ruin you for 'good' literature. As usual, Jack Reacher finds himself in an impossible situation with a strong, beautiful woman (with a bad leg). Who has kidnapped them? Who have they actually kid ...more

Fascinating stuff for Trollope fans. He talks with honesty of his unhappy childhood, being bullied at school and his early misery working at the post office. In his later years he tells very little of his personal life, but writes extensively of his ...more

Jane Austen
“She was nothing more than a mere good-tempered, civil and obliging Young Woman; as such we could scarcely dislike her -- she was only an Object of Contempt”
Jane Austen, Love and Freindship and Other Early Works

Anthony Trollope
“This habit of reading, I make bold to tell you, is your pass to the greatest, the purest, and the most perfect pleasure that God has prepared for His creatures. It lasts when all other pleasures fade. It will support you when all other recreations are gone. It will last until your death. It will make your hours pleasant to you as long as you live.”
Anthony Trollope

Anthony Trollope
“What on earth could be more luxurious than a sofa, a book, and a cup of coffee?...Was ever anything so civil?”
Anthony Trollope, The Warden
