The Vicar of Bullhampton

Gelesen von Angel5

(4,227 Sterne; 33 Bewertungen)

This little-known but engrossing Trollope novel, published in 1870, centers on a feisty small-town clergyman, his cantankerous neighbor, the miller, and the women in both their lives. A murder, a trial, a feud, a fallen woman, and a complicated romance are woven together in an exploration of the limits of our ability to truly do right when we involve ourselves in the lives of others, even with the best intentions.

Classic Trollope

(4 Sterne)

Overall a very enjoyable book and very well read. I have read or listened to most of Trollope's novels and, I must admit, I do find most of his heroines annoying, especially as many are persistently stubborn when they are pursued by highly eligible suitors. For example, Mary is stubborn and a real pain. She is pursued by a gentleman who is a wealthy squire, agrees to marry him, but jilts him because she loves her rather pathetic cousin. She is penniless and relies on being supported by her relatives. In reality, this is not really plausible. Anyway, despite this, I really did enjoy listening to the book. Thank you to the volunteer.

Great Author!

(5 Sterne)

Anthony Trollope is an author I had never heard of before I started listening to LibriVox books. I am never disappointed with any of his stories. The character development is On Target, the plot line is always interesting it holds your attention, and just his way with words is wonderful. This is a family-type story that you're sure to enjoy if you like this genre. the reader is excellent, I enjoy her different dialects and her style of reading is very relaxing to The Listener.

Enjoyable love story/character study

(4 Sterne)

This was quite a fun book - full of interesting characters that many of us have met in the modern world. The chapters are short and move quickly, so I had trouble "putting it down". Angela did an excellent job reading this solo project. I noticed some popping on my car CD player and I'm not sure if that was due to dirt on the CD, or if the dB of the files was a bit too high.

enjoyable

(4 Sterne)

Not one of Trollope's best, for me - though perhaps more realistic in being less satisfying, with none of the characters in the main love triangle quite fitting a positive or negative romantic stereotype? Plus it seems to pander to a harsher morality than I usually associate with Trollope. Enjoyable nonetheless. Thanks to the reader.

Trollope at His Best

(5 Sterne)

With excellent narration and a good long story this is highly enjoyable. I’m so impressed with the narrator for reading such a long tale.
