Oh my gosh this book was terrible I suffered through 2 disk and had to give up too many characters just too confusing.
If you loved Dr. Thorpe and Phineas Phin, you'll devour this one whole. Trollope was Austen in pants. The portrait of Crosby and his vicissitudes is riveting. I'll not say a word about Lily Dale though I'm mad to obtain whatever subsequent book contains a note on her ultimate fate. At any rate, an extremely satisfying read in every respect and full of the restless movement that foreshadows the coming modern age.
Delightful story. After finishing Austen's Sense and Sensibility (a wonderful read or listen), I was looking for something in the same genre. Although Trollope does not have quite the same biting humor as Austen, he tells a good story with compelling characters. It got off to a slow start, but I was quite drawn into the story by the end of the first CD. It does end happily for most characters, and I was sad to say goodbye after 19 CD's.
