Marion Fay


Read by Arnold

(4.5 stars; 27 reviews)

Marion Fay (1882) offers a pair of romances, each involving a match between one titled personage and one commoner. The misalliances lead to the typical strains between parental desires and romantic wishes of the young. The novel’s primary characters have such noble dispositions that Trollope was impelled to create several far more interesting minor characters who either threaten mayhem or provide amusing diversions.

Reviews

Highly Enjoyable!

(5 stars)

While long this typical Trollope story is wonderful with its in-depth character development. It has lots of humor to offset the very sad parts. Highly recommend.

Good story.

(3 stars)

The usual Trollope yarn... Sad, philosophical, long but interesting. Reader was better on this story. Thank you.

Anthony Trollope does it again, but even better. Touching love stories, one ends in grief. You feel he understands the nature of men and women so well. You feel concern, respect, endearment, hostility, anger, desire for exposure, punishment, happiness. No spoilers here. Arnold the narrator helps make the story what it is. A real treat! Real romance, no sex.
