In spite of Dickens popularity, I think Trollope the better writer and these 6 novels show him at his best. Amazing value - I would have paid considerably more for the individual books.

This should form part of everyone's library as an example of great plot lines, excellent characterisation and most of all, the books are really hilarious! Although the minutae of Victorian Church politics is now long forgotten, it is interesting to remember that this hotbed of political intrigue was supposed to be devoted to God and good works - and in fact most of the time was spent jostling for position and money!

I loved the tv serial and am enjoying reading the books. Anthony Trollop is an excellent author and for the out of copyright price of 49p it is doubly good!

A glimpse into another world where politics is still politics and hasty moves still bring disaster. If you enjoy reading Dickens, you'll enjoy this.

What a treasure. I have tried to start this series so many times and stalled. However, having pushed through I finally get Trollope. The gentle humour is wonderful, and I love how so many much loved characters keep popping up in each book. It will stay with me all my life. I'm going to start the Palliser series next

To have the temerity to critique anything by Trollope is above my abilities but, if you love the Barchester Chronicles as I do then this is the volume for you. The complete works are here at a nominal price which allows anyone to have them on tap, so to speak. It cannot replace having the volumes in your own library but so much easier to just dip in and out when in Kindle form.

Not finished reading yet, according to my Kindle it is over 68 hours of reading. Not to everyone's taste in style or content but I am really enjoying it. Set in the world of mid 19th century ecclesiastical life in a fictional west country town it chronicles the day by day petty church politics and relationships in great detail. It just strikes a chord with me (who knows nothing about that world) but I doubt if it will work for many in the 21st century. Parts of it are actually very funny in a droll kind of way. And it only cost about £0.78 so great value as far as I am concerned. Some may remember the TV serialisation many years ago starring Donald Pleasance and Alan Rickman amongst many others.

Trollope is witty and incredibly insightful; his humour is at times pithy, at times droll. I love the way his characters are so real.

Plenty to read and first class fiction will keep you reading for ages. Trollope dose not disappoint all his novels are very satisfying and his characters very believable and to be found in our society today
