Four stars

Good rather than great. Verbose on occasion but more often witty & wise. Fine narration.

a delight

A charming story--witty and insightful. Beautifully read as well. This novel is a perfect introduction to Trollop's works and to the world of Barchester.

Not the best of the Barchester series.

What did you like best about The Warden? What did you like least?

Trollope is wonderful. The characters at the center of this story aren't particularly interesting, however.

Would you recommend The Warden to your friends? Why or why not?

I would recommend The Warden to anyone who likes Trollope. Despite certain weaknesses, as the first book in the Barchester chronicles, it is worth reading. The later books in this series are more interesting. Don't give up on the series as a whole, if you don't find The Warden to be particularly compelling.
