Doctor Wortle's School

Read by Angel5

(4.5 stars; 68 reviews)

Anthony Trollope’s fortieth novel, published in 1881, concerns a respectable Christian boys’ school whose proprietor unknowingly hires a woman who apparently has two husbands: a devoted English scholar and an abusive drunkard from the American South. The book interweaves a sensitive and realistic exploration of Dr. Wortle’s moral dilemma with a humorous look at small-town gossip and--of course--a romance involving the doctor’s beautiful young daughter.

Trollope Triumphs Again

(5 stars)

Excellent reading! Typically wonderful Trollope. The novel is somewhat shorter than others from Trollope’s pen, but the characters and their interactions are well-developed Definitely worth a listen for those with a taste for Victorian Lit.

Great little sample of Trollope!

(5 stars)

I loved this book; it’s like a condensed version of what Trollope can do with his longer novels. The narrator was excellent.

(2.5 stars)

probably a nice story but it is read very fast. How much better it would have been to slow down and let one digest the story.

Well read!

(5 stars)

Since I love stories about schools, I'm glad that I found this book. Enjoyed this book and the narration.

Most enjoyable!

Great story, characterization and reader...though she would be SUPER if only she would slow down a bit!
