Trollope, Anthony: An Eye For An Eye. v1. 21 Aug. 07
Here's a light read by Anthony Trollope, and not very long - by his standards.
Here's one quote about the book:
"Normally, I would recommend that a new Trollope reader would start with one of the longer novels like BARCHESTER TOWERS or THE WAY WE LIVE NOW. Although it is atypical for a Trollope novel, AN EYE FOR AN EYE is short, rather elegantly written, and a good book to read if you have no intentions of tackling the entire 47-novel Trollope canon."
This is a somewhat minor novel in Trollope's canon, so if you haven't read anything by him and have been curious about his novels, I would recommend this one or The Warden that I assembled earlier. It's available in the Upload area.
And here's another quote, one that goes into detail about the plot:
"Eye for an Eye has an immature young man making rather a mess of his first entree into adult opportunities. The book is a jaunty, interesting run to a conclusion--a reminder that immature behavior by a young adult can have unforeseen consequences. Many of the devices of Trollope's comic novels are here, but they subserve a plot which resolves in a decidedly non-comic fashion. A light read, an interesting commentary, and a social frankness that does not seem at all old fashioned. Trollope was not always an ardent critic of his own social order, but he understood the problems, as this book shows in a non-preachy way."
I hope you enjoy it.
P.S.: I'll be assembling all the Trollope I can find.
