5.0 out of 5 stars Trollope in the City, 28 Feb 2009
This great book is truly Trollope's masterpiece. The different lines of plot and characters will keep you enthralled. The central personality of Augustus Melmotte is interesting and complex - at times almost Lear like in tragic implications. Here Trollope demonstrates his knowledge of the world, human motives and psychological situations par excellence. A truly great read, and also a very contemporary theme with todays financial scandals in the headlines.

Interesting and colorful personalities described here. The writing though is rather labored and repetetive. Anyone interested in the roaring twenties and beyond in London will find it informative and amusing.
