I've seen that a lot of you are readers. I am reading a book that mentions "trollope" whose name I recognize but I've never read.

I am looking for good novels to read. Is trollop one of them or are others good too?

Yes, he's jolly good. by ambrosen (4.00 / 1) #1 Fri Oct 05, 2007 at 11:11:09 PM EST
If you need to know about middle class 19th century England, he's your man. Austen, Elliot and the Bront√ęs are all about people and emotions, and Dickens is too much social commentary, but Trollope covers smaller injustices. He does explore people though. There is a point to his fiction.

"The Way We Live Now".  Long but easy to read.  Bit of an epic or soap opera type feel, as I remember.  Liked it, will probably read some more of his sometime.

Captain once asked if he could get him some trollop; Flashman was disappointed to hear she's an author.

to read Trollope - so you can say "I enjoy going to bed with a good Trollope."
