The Prime Minister by Anthony Trollope
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is the fifth novel in the Palliser series. It was a favorite of Tolstoy, and readers may notice the similarity of an incident in The Prime Minister to what is perhaps the most famous incident in Tolstoy's fiction. (It appears that each man wrote his rel ...more

A great novel, perhaps Trollope's best. But it's not the one I usually recommend to those who have never read Trollope and want to try him. For one thing, it's very long. For another, it's pretty dark. There are a lot of characters in this novel, and ...more

Harry Heathcote of Gangoil by Anthony Trollope
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is the first of Trollope's Australian novels. In fact, it is arguably his only novel set entirely in Australia, since the other claimant, The Fixed Period, is a futuristic novel whose setting could have been anywhere in the world -- anywhere where cric ...more

Lady Anna by Anthony Trollope

As I write these Trollope reviews, I realize how similar so many of his novels sound if they're just described in a few sentences. If you read them, however, the differences come through. Trust me.

Like so many of Trollope's novels, Lady Anna

Clear rating
This is the third novel in Trollope's Palliser series, although the Pallisers themselves are largely offstage in it. The main characters in this novel are schemers and cheats of one sort or another. To the extent Trollope means to suggest that standa ...more

The Golden Lion of Granpere by Anthony Trollope
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is another of Trollope's shorter, single-plot novels set on the Continent, like Nina Balatka and Linda Tressel -- this time in Alsace-Lorraine. The plot is the well-worn will they/won't they get married theme. (The "Golden Lion" of the title is an inn, run by ...more

Ralph the Heir by Anthony Trollope

Entailed estates often figure in the plots of nineteenth century novels. (Who can forget the entail of the Bennetts' home on the loathsome Collins?) They crop up in several of Trollope's novels.

Here, Gregory Newton's estate is entailed up
