The acclaimed BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Anthony Trollope's classic story of provincial life.

One of the most respected, successful chroniclers of 19th-century life, Anthony Trollope is still widely read and much-loved today, and The Barchester Chronicles - witty moral comedies with a wonderful range of characters - are among his most popular tales.

The Small House at Allington explores the power of devotion, in the form of Lily Dale's love for self-seeking Adolphus Crosbie. Download and start listening now!

    " This was a very long and slow procession and it turned into something that I finished partly for curiosity about the ending and partly for a stubborness to finish what I'd started. I didn't not like it but I wouldn't recommend it. "

    " Anthony Trollope is a master at writing characters you want to slap upside the head, but he is so nice about it at the same time. His characters, both men and women, are multidimensional, even the comic ones. (He has time to develop them, because his books can get massive.) Sure, Lily is irritating, but the book is constructed well, and Anthony's casual yet nuanced storytelling style is really endearing to me, if not everyone. "

    " The 5th Barchester novel. Lovely (but too good to be true?) Lily Dale, vacuous Augustus Crosbie (the "swell"), hobbledehoy Jonnie Eames. It just stops, with very few threads resolved, and most of the characters unfulfilled, if not actually unhappy. Is such an ending clever or frustrating? "

    " This has definitely been my favorite Trollope book yet. He takes the typical story of two sisters' romances and turns it on its head. One is engaged right away and jilted and the other rejects the ideal suitor for a penniless one. Lily Dale in particular is great as is John Eames, for whom this is a coming of age story as well. I also liked how he didn't make Crosbie a flat character but made the jilting a temptation to him and then continues his storyline, rather than leaving him simply as a villain. The only negative thing is the edition--very poorly copyedited--unclear paragraphing in dialogue and typos galore. "
