    " How does Trollope do it. I was enthralled to the last page, all the while completely sympathetic to the situation of one of the most craven characters I have ever read about. Poor Cousin Henry. "

    " Not my favorite Trollope. Sadly lacking in AT's amazing subplots. "

    " I remember liking Trollope in highschool, but I didn't like this much. I found the actions, motives and logic of both main characters very hard to fathom, even with the fact that they are 19th century characters. They didn't behave in ways that seemed at all logical or realistic to me "

    " A wonderful classic dealing with guilt and obsession. As much as I love the classics, I can't always say I coultn't put it down. This one, though, I really couldn't. This one doesn't get a lot of mention, but it should. "

    " This is an 'easy read' classic book. It's about a disputed will of a squire in Wales. "

    " It's okay. I just hadn't read any Trollope. Interesting character study. Heavy redundancies from being paid by the word (I assume). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita | 5/3/2013

    " Marvelous short novel. Good for a taste of Trollope. And for its time and place, a remarkably interesting character study of conscience. Crime and Punishment, it ain't, but some of the themes are the same. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tabitha Ormiston-Smith | 4/24/2013

    " A wonderful, although very sad, book about the folly of cowardice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 4/6/2013

    " Even though I really enjoyed the expert character development and subtle personality traits portrayed in this book, it failed to capture my interest as thoroughly as Can You Forgive Her? did. I guess I'm more of a love story fan than a fan of stories about a dead man's will. "

    " Cousin Henry is Anthony Trollope's "thriller." A good short read that is much more suspenseful than his other novels. "

About the Author
Author Anthony Trollope

Anthony Trollope (1815–1882) grew up in London. He inherited his mother’s ambition to write and was famously disciplined in the development of his craft. His first novel was published in 1847 while he was working in Ireland as a surveyor for the General Post Office. He wrote series of books set in the English countryside as well as those set in the political life, works that show great psychological penetration. One of his greatest strengths was his ability to re-create in his fiction his own vision of the social structures of Victorian England. The author of forty-seven novels, he was one of the most prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era.
