Phineas Finn is the fourth in Trollope's series of six Palliser novels. At the end of Phineas Finn, the second novel in the series, Phineas had returned to Ireland and married his childhood sweetheart after having left the House of Commons. As Phineas Redux opens, Phineas is working as a Poorhouse Inspector in Ireland. His wife having died in childbirth, he finds his existence dull and unsatisfying. Phineas' returns to England; his career advances and his romantic adventures continue, while we encounter many familiar characters including Glencora and Plantagenet Palliser, Madame Goesler, and Lizzie Eustace and her husband the Reverand Mr. AEmelius. (Summary by Karen Merline)

Reviews

a glorious ride

(5 stars)

This, book 4 of the 6 book Palliser series, takes up where the earlier Phineas Finn novel ends. If you are reading this review I don’t have to ring its praises...you are already hooked. The characters are sympathetic and the plot lines so rich, it is perfect escapist fiction. I am thrilled to have two more books in which to sink myself into the world of Plenti-Pal the Duke of Omnium. 5 enthusiastic stars for Trollop as well as the readers.

PHINEAS REDEEMS HIS PHOOLDOM

(5 stars)

It is said that heaven watches over phools. Phineas is a prime example, but he is now safe with his lady love. This is another enjoyable and compelling book in this series.

Trollope at his best

(5 stars)

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series of novels. Cannot wait for the next in the series.
