For Trollope fans, not Trollope newbies

First of all, I'm okay with Flo Gibson narration, almost having an affection for it, but she's not for everyone.

That aside, I found the story largely dated, feeling it likely appealed to a Victorian audience more than it would to a modern one. Not a very suspenseful plot, with the ending pretty much what I'd expected earlier on. Reminded me a bit of Poe's "The Telltale Heart" almost as though Trollope had gotten his idea after reading that book.

Trollope not at his best

Thin story. Seems to go on and on and it become a rehash. Should be limited to one rather than six hours.
