I read The Warden once (45 years ago) and the successor Barchester Towers multiple times. Barchester Towers is a comedy masterpiece, and would probably work great as an audiobook with the right reader. I'm trying to imagine an audio of The Warden.

The reading is by Hugh Fraser (of Poirot fame) and is quite amusing. He is delivering the story with dry wit and a pleasant pace.

You've inspired me to request a BBC Radio 4 dramatization of the complete Barchester chronicles from the Ottawa Public Library.

I recorded them when they were initially broadcast. Enjoyable, but very much truncated, of course.

I'd wondered about how much pruning would be done to make it work as a dramatization. Trollope could be prolix, but also so witty when he was on.

The whole series is 20 x 1h plays, the first two of which comprise "The Warden". It's well worth listening to - very enjoyable.

FYI, the recording of The Warden alone is 10hrs. So, yeah, serious truncation.

It's a dramatisation of the book, though, not a reading of it, so different considerations apply. I dislike abridged readings, but dramatisations can be very good, and this one is.

I remember The Warden as being a bit svelte, relative to Barchester Towers and Dr. Thorne.

Didn't she start out as a lounge singer? If I'm not mistaken, she's classically trained.
