Publisher's Summary

The acclaimed BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Anthony Trollope's classic story of provincial life. One of the most respected, successful chroniclers of 19th-century life, Anthony Trollope is still widely read and much-loved today, and The Barchester Chronicles - witty moral comedies with a wonderful range of characters - are among his most popular tales. The Last Chronicle of Barset sees the most popular characters from Trollope's earlier novels, including the Proudies, Lily, Mr Harding, and Archdeacon Grantley, reunited in a moving tale of honesty triumphing over hypocrisy.

Perfect Trollope

These BBC dramatisations of the Barchester Chronicles are all very well done, with a great cast, fine production and excellent abridging, particularly of the slower episodes in the books. If you are new to Barchester then book two (Barchester Towers) is the best starting point, but for me this final one is the very best of the five and has had the most repeat listens since I bought them about 6 months ago.

If you are buying all 5, then the single edition audio book is better value than buying them individually from Audible.
