Publisher's Summary

Anthony Trollope's classic novel centers on Mr. Harding, a clergyman of great personal integrity whose charitable income far exceeds the purpose for which it was intended. On discovering this, young John Bold turns his reforming zeal toward exposing what he regards as an abuse of privilege, despite the fact that he is in love with Mr. Harding's daughter, Eleanor. Set in the world of the Victorian professional and landed classes he portrayed so superbly, Trollope explores the complexities of human motivation and social morality.The Warden is the first of the six classic Chronicles of Barsetshire novels, Trollope's best-loved and most famous work.

1950's Trollope

Oh dear. Why does Simon Vance feel impelled to make all the characters sound as though they have stepped from a 1950's British film? Eleanor is made particularly unattractive, with priggish clipped vowels at their worst. A pity, because it is a good book and he's not a bad reader in many ways.

Another wonderful tale

Another wonderful tale from Trollope. At about half the price of the Timothy West reading I found Simon Vance more than adequate as narrator.
