Anthony Trollope's Small Affairs

This is a BBC production. What else could better express the excellence of this audio book? The music and performances are perfect. This version is even more accessible than the unabridged audio book. I think this is a result from the slimming down of the original while remaining true to the storyline. The story includes The Warden, Doctor Thorne and The Final Chronicles of Barset. This production fairly zips along without losing any essential element of the story during the dramatization process. It is an ambitious undertaking and faultless executed.

From one point of view, this is a story with strong willed women and is peppered with men with their usual failings. There are delicious misunderstandings about who is to marry whom. The intramural quarrels were fortunately conducted without resort to swords, axes, guns or bombs. In particular, I loved the proposal scene where Mrs. Bolts slaps the face of the odious Mr. Slope. If any man deserved a good solid slap, it was he. This is a thoroughly enjoyable performance to the very last line.

Excellent!

If you like Jane Austen and are looking for something funny and engaging, I think you may enjoy this. The dramatisation works very well and the actors are uniformly excellent.

Who would have thought I'd like this?

I never read Trollope, although I have read most of his contemporaries. He just never seemed very interesting - and the idea of books about church politics - in the 19th century - in England!, well, it didn't seem appealing. But the BBC always does good work and I was desperate for a good read.
Eureka! This is a wonderful set of 'dramatisations' - the characters voices are well differentiated and the story is engorssing. If you like Dickens or Eliot - I think you'll like this.

The complete Barchester Chronicles

As I love the TV adaption of the Chronicles of Barchester I looked forward to listening to this audiobook. I didn't realise the TV show just covered the first part of these chronicles. The fact that I was familiar with the story made the first Chronicle more enjoyable - I loved it. Now I plan to listen to them all again as I think the more familiar one becomes with the story the more one can follow the many characters.

Great AudioBook

A Great listen, I throughly enjoyed listening to this book. All of the characters were distinctly individual. Loved the way all of the stories were smoothly intertwined. The romantic entanglements and life dramas were a listening pleasure. I will listen to this book again and again.

Fantastic

I listened to this brilliant performance after the completion of the series. The acting and script are excellent. Lots of humour are evoked by the performance and I found it to be highly entertaining and faithful to Trollope's work. Excellent.

Well dramatized

Witty, sweet, bucolic British dramatization of all 5 of Trollope's Barchester books. Easy listening but without the detail and nuances of the full books. An excellent and lovely, although severe, abridgment.

Life never changes..

The narrators and actors were very good. I could not believe I was riveted by the story. I am now looking for more Trolope. Excellent story teller
