    "Not Trollope at his best"
    What did you like best about Linda Tressel? What did you like least?

    Loved the setting and the albeit limited descriptions of the house and of Nuremberg from another time. Trollope writes insightfuly from a womans perspective . The religious fanatacism of the Aunt strikes a chime with contemporary society. Thought the plot was thin when compared to other Trollope novels and that some of the twists and turns felt contrived. One for die hard Trollope fans only. The narration is not good...


    Would you be willing to try another book from Anthony Trollope? Why or why not?

    Yes, Yes, Yes! Trollope is a literary genius and must reads are all the Barchester novels, 'Can You Forgive Her', and 'The Eustace Diamonds'.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narration was poor. Sounded speeded up and digitally altered. The characters were not sufficiently differentiated. Linda Tressel sounded like a wimp...but was in fact a courageous young woman.


    Was Linda Tressel worth the listening time?

    Yes...for me, but I am a huge fan of Trollope.


    Any additional comments?

    Only if you want to listen to everything Trollope. Definitely not for newbies.
