5.0 out of 5 stars Darker than Phineas Phinn 29 July 2006
By Roman Clodia TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the sequel to Phineas Phinn and part of the Pallisers series, but can still be read alone. Phineas - attractive, passionate and ambitious - faces his worst trial when his enemy is murdered and he himself is accused of the crime which he could so nearly have committed.

Excellent on Victorian society, politics and law, with fabulous female characters, this is one of Trollope's best, most emotional and under-rated novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something rotten in the kingdom of Victoria 27 Aug 2008
By Didier TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Let me start right of by saying that this, the fourth novel in Trollope's Palliser-series, is to my mind the best in the series so far (I still have the last 2 to read of course). It is on the one hand everything one comes to expect from a good Trollope-novel, and on the other hand is clearly different.

At the start of the story Phineas is living a respectable but uneventful life in Dublin, working as a lawyer. His wife Mary has died giving birth to their still-born child, and Phineas must acknowledge to himself that he misses the thrill of his earlier career as an MP in London. So when he is asked if he will stand again in the elections he jumps to the opportunity, although fully aware that his money will soon run out unless he can obtain a job in some or other government office.

Phineas is elected and finds himself back in Parliament, full of high hopes and grand ideas (misguided, as he will duly learn) to participate in the democratic government of the country. But before long, things start to fall apart: in his election campaign Phineas pleaded for church disestablishment, only to find that his party opposes the very same measure, which leaves but two alternatives for Phineas,neither of them very attractive: either to vote with his party (in other words go back on the promises he made in his election campaign), or to vote against his party (which would probably keep his conscience clear but ruin his chances of obtaining a government post).

In his private life too, not all is as it should be. Whereas his easy charm used to make him the favorite of all the noble ladies in London society, his relations with them now seem to have become difficult and awkward.

4.0 out of 5 stars Phineas Redux review 4 Jun 2013
By douglas
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having followed the earlier exploits of Phineas Finn, this a must-read title in the Palliser series.
The book is one of the best in the series having, in addition to the inevitable romantic element, politics, crime and a trial. The overall story has much more cohesion than some of the other Palliser books where there seems to be two or more parallel plots having quite tenuous connections and separate conclusions. Dickens, by contrast always managed to bring his plots together in a neat, if not always happy, conclusion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Phineas Resurgent 8 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
Trollope's direct sequel to Phineas Finn, The Irish Member (English Library) has the eponymous hero face a series of difficult challenges, the culmination of which is his being on trial for murder. It is therefore a far darker novel than the first, and far more enjoyable for it. Either book can be read as stand alone novels as the plot of the first is neatly concluded, and the second contains sufficient reminders and references to the first as to make it unnecessary to read. Political and personal jealousy lead to Finn's arrest. And rekindled rivalry among his female suitors similarly makes his widowhood an uneasy burden. As with the novel Phineas Finn, we learn more of the motivations and thoughts of these would be lovers than Finn himself. For that, we have his apparent stoicism and politeness towards each woman. Teasingly, there are occasional hints that Finn considers marriage as a means of helping his political career. A sub plot of Phineas Redux is the battle between fictionalised versions of Disraeli and Gladstone over disestablishment of the Church of England. Trollope has Disraeli propose this action to the annoyance of his own party, forcing the Liberals to oppose it (a gentle satire of the parties' similar positions over the Second Reform Act).

5.0 out of 5 stars anthony trollope 14 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Phineas Redux is another of Trollope's interesting books--made up of several interwoven stories. It gives a good insight into life at the time. I find it hard to put the book down. However, one has to be in the mood to deal with some of the political stuff, especially if one has forgotten some of the historical background

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous 1 Feb 2001
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Having followed Phineas Finn through his earlier ups and downs it is a real pleasure to see him again. I love his quirkiness. He is such an unlikely hero, in that he moves in the world of politics and power but always tries to remain true to himself and his struggles are fascinating. He is so human because you can see how tempted he is and how many demons he has to fight. This novel has a fitting end to his struggles with love blossoming with the equally unconvential Madame Max. The characters in this series get better and better and my favourite, Lady Glencora, gets a great role in this book.
