    It may be peculiar in this day and age to love these sweet corny old tales but I do. Anthony Trollope is a master of characterization and Simon Vance is BRILLIANT at bringing all the characters to life.

    Marti Waller is right, Trollope was born two years too soon to actually be the reincarnation of Austen, but he is surely channeling her. This novel is a witty delight with characters you MUST love as much as Trollope does.

  • Marti Waller

    Excellent. Much like Jane Austen but from a man's point of view. Great humor and wonderful reader. You'll love it.
