Very good as usual,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Chronicle of Barset (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
My review is slightly different than those already here in that I thought this was the weakest of the Barsetshire novels. This was not my opinion for the first half or two thirds (at that stage I agreed that it was one of Trollope's best)but I found the final chapters to drag considerably. However the characterisation throughout is as unimpeachable as ever and that alone elevates the novel above the competition.
I concur with Trollope own realisation that in drawing his Barset chronicles to a close with this book it had clearly become time to move on to something new.
