I loved the book and I loved the audiobook just as much.

What a superb job Timothy West does of reading Trollope. The perfect Trollope narrator, he sheds light on Trollope's dry humor and brings each character to life. I always hate to reach the end of one of his audiobooks.

A continuation of Phineas Finn, this novel is probably Trollope's darkest work, although it is not a dark novel. There are moments of despair and sadness as some characters' lives seem to unravel, and moments of joy and quiet satisfaction as other favorites succeed. Trollope gives us just enough characters to despise and to adore. (And who wouldn't want Lady Glencora as a friend?!)

11/1/11: I'm reading/listening to the Palliser series in order. Started this audiobook again today.
