Trollope must be the least indulgent writer I’ve yet come across. He writes straightforward and with absolutely no adornment. Not that he’s bad, it’s just a very economical and conservative style. And it helps because though the plot isn’t overly complicated, there is a lot going on relationship wise to keep track of.

This must have been the soap opera of its day. I do enjoy it.
