Summer-reading? What do you look for? Something light and easy to get through. Something long and absorbing? Something challenging? Something familiar?
The BBC has suggested a list (attached). But which Trollope’s would make your Summer reading list?
For me it would have to include:
Barchester Towers because it is a favourite for its satire and the downright hilarious scenes of would-be suitors trying to “land” Eleanor.
Phineas Finn for the trials and tribulations Phineas undergoes in his efforts to carve a political career
The Eustace Diamonds for the sheer joy of Lizzie Eustace’s wiles and schemes
The Fixed Period for some futuristic dystopian light relief
