Orley Farm

Gelesen von Leonard Wilson

(4,611 Sterne; 27 Bewertungen)

Orley Farm is Trollope at his best (as good as the Barsetshire series), which means some of the best characterizations in the English language. Trollope's people are real; the beleaguered Lady Mason, charged with forging a will; the aged lover Sir Peregrine Orme; Madeleine Stavely, deeply but practically in love; the shallow, fickle Sophia Furnival and others are 3-dimensional figures that live and breathe. His satire of the so-called "justice" system is the best kind of satire: he just describes the court proceedings as they really are. The result is as up-to-date as today's newspaper.

THIS DID NOT MAKE THE FAME OF TROLLOPE

(5 Sterne)

His books are always slow, but this one is the slowest. It finally gains momentum around chapter 60. Thankfully the reader is one of the best, else I might have given up. One reader's comment deploring the lawyers of the England at that time rings hollow. Our group of ambulance chasers put them to shame.

(3,5 Sterne)

Great story (stories). I didn’t care so much for the character reading but in all honesty that is probably due to my generally not liking character readings.

(4 Sterne)

Book is good at showing judicial system in England at that time and personal relations in this society.
