    " It's sometimes sad to come to the end of an enduring pleasure, as has been mine in the reading of the Barchester Chronicles. All six books were a pleasure and a delight and I came to know the inhabitants of the region like neighbors and freinds. This book was a fitting end, as it had about it the sunset glow of a summer's day. I know I will re-read the whole chronicle again and again. "

    " Last read this 30 years ago and couldn't remember anything much about it. Really enjoyed it and found the plot gripping. My only complaint would be that all was resolved very quickly, but then they didn't have email when Trollope was writing. If that had been the case, there would have been no story! "

    " Really enjoyed this book. I have now started the Palliser series which Trollope wrote after the Barchester series. "

    " I do love to immerse myself in Trollope's world but have to admit that the Last Chronicle had me inwardly urging him to 'get on with it'. Perhaps I'm just over-Trolloped. Nevertheless there was the usual delight in Trollope's close observation of societal norms in mid-19th C. England and the trouble adhering to them cause his cast of characters. "

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.
