Reviews

Simon reads Anthony

(5 stars)

Mr. Evers’ narration of Trollope is so natural that it’s not hard to imagine the two could’ve collaborated on this very interesting story. The tale of an Englishman settling his family in the harsh landscape of Australia is one of Trollope’s most enjoyable books. Highly recommend!

Excellent!

(5 stars)

Just when you think you have Anthony Trollope figured out, he writes something totally different. Fascinating portrait of a lonely man and his fears, with a Trollope happy ending. One of my favorite works by one of my favorite authors. As usual, Simon Evers does an excellent job.

A glimpse into life in Australia

(5 stars)

Anthony Trollope is a master story teller and Simon Evers is a master of reading. Thoroughly enjoyable.
