    Description

    The first novel in Trollope’s Chronicles of Barsetshire, The Warden is a compassionate portrait of the gentle, thoughtful warden and precentor of Barchester Cathedral, Mr. Septimus Harding.

    Loved and appreciated by all with whom he works, Harding lives an ordered, regular life in his protected religious environment. Then one day, a young reformer feels he has uncovered a mismanagement of funds and Harding is held to blame. The accusation comes as a shock not only to Harding himself but also to the cathedral community. It then comes to wider notice when the cause is taken up by a national newspaper.

    Trollope’s insight into character, his abundant imagination, and his sheer narrative skill are at their peak in The Warden.

    I kept waiting for something to happen

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The plot, such as it was, proceeded at a glacial pace, particularly in the beginning. Perhaps someone who appreciates the beauty of language as much as or more than the plot.

    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something were the pace moves a bit more quickly!

    So many words, so little story!

    I was looking forward to this story based on reviews of Trollope's other books. Very disappointed.
