More About the Author

Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) was born in London to a bankrupt barrister father and a mother who, as a well-known writer, supported the family. Trollope enjoyed considerable acclaim both as a novelist and as a senior civil servant in the Post Office. He published more than forty novels and many short stories that are regarded by some as among the greatest of nineteenth-century fiction.

About the Author

As young adult, Trollope endured seven years of poverty in the General Post Office in London before accepting a better-paying position as postal surveyor in Banagher, Ireland in 1841. The years in Ireland formed the basis of his second career delineating clerical life in small cathedral towns. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars PITY ABOUT THE BAD SCANNING 28 Oct 2011
By lbeagle
Format:Kindle Edition
How can this terribly badly scanned version have been allowed to be published? The errors are initially amusing, then irritating but finally infuriating. Anyone who scans text - especially old-fashioned text - knows that there can be problems. But this takes the biscuit!

Excellent story, of course, but even the author would have been embarrassed by this version of his work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Belton is belting 23 April 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although seriously under-proof read, and full of literals, this is a fine novel. The book itself is superbly produced with a feel of quality about it-and a most attractive cover. There is a sarcastic thread which runs through the portrayal of all the characters. Involvement in the unfolding biographies of the characters is absolute. The future mother-in-law is a grotesque dragon, full of self regard and superior attitudes but completely unaware that she is anything but a model to emulate. If you like Trollope you will love this book. The usual fault of Trollope is an over complex plot, with numerous superfluous characters being introduced-this work, refreshingly, does not suffer from this, although we have the usual annoying double negatives...'not unadjacent to','not dissimilar to..' Still, we can't have everything! Buy it!Michael Harris/Birmingham.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good Trollope read. 16 Feb 2012

Another good Trollope read, full of family disputes and will they, won't they love entanglements. However, it all works out in the end. Very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Belton Estate 6 Aug 2013
By Keen Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER
I've read this book quite a few times over the years, and it always interests and engages me. The story is deceptively simple, as so many of Trollope's works are, but it is the characters, their motivations and their actions that tell the story. Trollope's characters are thoughtful, motivated, emotionally attached to their lives and it is the mulling over of thoughts, actions, and their consequences that make these stories so timeless, and yet so of their time, late Victorian England.

In this story, Clara Amedroz is destined to be homeless and without portion on the death of her father, as her brother has killed himself and the entail of their estate must therefore go to her distant cousin, Will Belton. She has some prospects of a small entitlement, but the misunderstandings, miscommunications, pride and ambitions of others may well stand in the way of her ultimate happiness. Will she become the bride of Captain Aylmer, or will she continue in her belief that "I think it would be well if all single women were strangled by the time they are thirty" as she tells her aunt.

The characters in this story are wonderfully brought to life; Clara, her father, Will Belton and his sister, Captain Aylmer and his family, and Colonel and Mrs Askerton play the parts they are destined to play, and do it so well that the reader is enthralled from start to finish. This story is full of social detail from Trollope's time, and his play on the social mores of Victorian England, and the way in which the reader is drawn into the times and the circumstances make this another Trollope classic. Totally recommended.
