Trollope, Anthony: The Last Chronicle of Barset [Barset 06]. v1. 05 Aug. 07
The Barsetshire Chronicles are now COMPLETE. This is the sixth and last volume of the series. I want to thank rjnagle who asked for some Trollope. Perhaps you got more than you wanted!!
Here's a quote about this book:
"Anthony Trollope was a masterful satirist with an unerring eye for the most intrinsic details of human behavior and an imaginative grasp of the preoccupations of nineteenth-century English novels. In The Last Chronicle of Barset, Mr. Crawley, curate of Hogglestock, falls deeply into debt, bringing suffering to himself and his family. To make matters worse, he is accused of theft, can't remember where he got the counterfeit check he is alleged to have stolen, and must stand trial. Trollope's powerful portrait of this complex man-gloomy, brooding, and proud, moving relentlessly from one humiliation to another-achieves tragic dimensions."
And from another source:
"The Last Chronicle is the longest of the Barsetshire novels--and the best, considerably better in style than the more popular "Barchester Towers." Trollope's characterizations are, as usual, superb, among the very best in all literature. He skillfully interweaves all the various strands of the novel into a very satisfying whole."
And finally, one other source sums up my own feelings about Trollope in general:
"Trollope is...one of the most entertaining writers the English language has produced."
I hope you enjoy it.
P.S.: I just realized I saved myself $12.00. Plus, I like mine better than Connect's!
