I have not read much of Trollope’s work but I recently started The Way We Live Now and intend to get to He Knew He Was Right sometime in the near future.
Book- It’s really the first two books of the Chronicles of Barsetshire, The Warden and Barchester Towers. I admit I could not get into these two books very much. I found the kind Mr. Harding adorable and the archdeacon funny but John Bold was annoying (apparently even the author hated him!) and I did not really get involved in the love story. But I liked the villains, Mr. Slope and the Stanhopes to be the most interesting. 7/10
1982- I liked it more than the books, I think. Eleanor’s constant praise of her baby was downplayed and Alan Rickman was an excellent Mr. Slope. 8/10
The Way We Live Now
Book- Too long. Some parts were good. Others I found too draggy. 6/10
