Audio Book Summary

Orley Farm is Trollope at his best (as good as the Barsetshire series), which means some of the best characterizations in the English language. Trollope's people are real; the beleaguered Lady Mason, charged with forging a will; the aged lover Sir Peregrine Orme; Madeleine Stavely, deeply but practically in love; the shallow, fickle Sophia Furnival and others are 3-dimensional figures that live and breathe. His satire of the so-called "justice" system is the best kind of satire: he just describes the court proceedings as they really are. The result is as up-to-date as today's newspaper. (Introduction by Leonard Wilson)

    This was one of the best ones I’ve read & the narrator is excellent. The beginning was a bit confusing with so many characters but it kept my attention right to the end. Great job.

    The narrator makes this book interesting. He did a great job. Overall, I liked it very much though it lags a bit with all of the descriptions and keeping track of the characters was a little confusing. Despite that, I didn’t want to miss a word snd I found the story very interesting. As a liberated woman, I cannot imagine being ruled by a husband and being so concerned as to the opinion of others that it would destroy one. Glad I live now!

    Even though the story line was intense almost without relief, Leonard Wilson performed the reading so well that I was immediately drawn into the characters and the plot. Well done!

    Over 32 hours was a little daunting, but didn't take long to get into the story and the characters. The narrator did a perfect job and kept the interest going.
