    Paperback à Barchester Towers eBook ß barchester download, towers epub, Barchester Towers MOBIThis is hilarious The odious Mr Slope slimes his way through the upper class elements of the church looking for power and patronage and love in a village where nothing ever happens It's not so much a question of will hewon't he how much will he dare and who will fall for it? There's also an interesting character reversal in the Bishop's wife Mrs Proudie a strict sabbatarian who seeks to convert others to that practice However her esteem for the Church is far less than her esteem for herself and she does the right thing but for all the wrong reasons Lots of frustrated love upright characters getting their just rewards the unworthy slipping on their own grease and everything wrapped up in a tidy parcel just made for a BBC costume drama4 and a half stars Recommende

    Paperback à Barchester Towers eBook ß barchester download, towers epub, Barchester Towers MOBIThe 2nd Barchester novel Some of the church politics is rather too esoteric but less than The Warden but mostly it is charming astutely ascerbic and amusing yet also a little twee But Eleanor is a feisty and somewhat unconventional heroine for a male writer of Trollope's time The names of most minor characters are too comic for the style of the novel eg farmers Greenacre Topsoil Drs Fillgrave Rerechild Lamda Mewnew Omicron Pie Revs Brown White Grey Green aspirational Lookalofts Rev Quiverful with 12 children diplomatic Mr Plomacy loud Mrs Clantantram attorney Vellem Deeds some aren't even characters just names on a guest list Yet the main charact

    Paperback à Barchester Towers eBook ß barchester download, towers epub, Barchester Towers MOBIIt is with great regret that I assign my dear Trollope a mere four stars—really four and a half stars To me the most shameful part of being slightly disappointed in Barchester Towers was just how much weight is given to the novel not only in terms of Trollope’s own oeuvre but in terms of Victorian literature generally With that said though having read around and dappled in work of his both in and outside the Chronicles of Barsetshire I found Barchester Towers lacking in what for me is what makes Trollope such an extraordinary writer—namely his pacing and the way in which he engages his readers right from the start in

    Paperback à Barchester Towers eBook ß barchester download, towers epub, Barchester Towers MOBITill we can become divine we must be content to be human lest in our hurry for change we sink to something lower Barchester Towers Anthony TrollopeThis was lovely Barchester Towers in probably Trollope's best known and most popular work It could stand alone but really should be read after Warden as book 2 in the Barsetshire Series six books Trollope's prose is beautiful but his characters good and bad pretty and plain are sketched with such nuance and understanding that two books in I feel like many of them are familyThis year I committed to reading

    Paperback à Barchester Towers eBook ß barchester download, towers epub, Barchester Towers MOBII have just finished the second and probably best known of the Chronicles of Barsetshire and I enjoyed myself very much indeed I love Trollope's observations of the foibles of his characters and while some verge on caricature most have strengths and weaknesses as do we all There is great fun in loathing the villain Obadiah Slope and how could he not be villainous with such a name Eleanor Bold is the central female character and how much interesting a person she is than nearly all of Dickens' insipid female heroines Of course I have a soft spot for her because she shares my name However it is hard to go past Mrs Proudie the Bishop's wife as being the star turn of the book She rules the Bishop and everyone else with a rod of iron After a minor rebellion encouraged by the aforementioned Slope he was brought safely back under his lady's thumb and Trollope's comment on this was Oh husbands oh my marital

    Paperback à Barchester Towers eBook ß barchester download, towers epub, Barchester Towers MOBIThere is perhaps no greater hardship at present inflicted on mankind in civilised and free countries than the necessity of listening to sermonsA new bishop comes to Barchester Accompanied by his domineering wife and ambitious chaplain they thoroughly upset the way things are done in the sleepy cathedral town Old vs new High church vs low Battle lines are drawn and a power struggle between squabbling clergymen beginsLess dry and amusing than expected Archdeacon Grantly is a personal favourite Marriage means tyranny on one side and deceit on the other I say that a man is a fool to sacrifice his interests for such a bargain A woman too generally has no other way of livingThe savagery I love it

    Paperback à Barchester Towers eBook ß barchester download, towers epub, Barchester Towers MOBIWith this his fifth novel and second in the Barsetshire series Trollope hits his stride This is Trollope at his best It is the favorite novel of many Trollope nuts and certainly one of my favorites If you read the Barsetshire novels in order as I recommend you do you will start with The Warden a much inferior novel but fortunately one of Trollope's shortest but when you get to Barchester Towers it will all have been worth it
