    The chief pleasure of a Trollope novel for me is her believable dialogue and her effortless construction of characters.If it wasn t for these two outstanding talents I don t think I could put in the effort to get through a whole novel about people I can t bring myself to like or care much about One or two of the cast interest me including James, head of the household of rather random individuals in Richmond Villa and Joss, who would be his step daughter ...

    ,Not a single endearing character,ha ha But that must be the point from the teenager to the 30 s 40 s 60 s and goodness beyond all groping through life half dazed with momentary snatches of victorious insights You want to dive into the scene, shake someone up, belch your opinion, guide, direct and scold them all for their selfishness, weakness, indecisiveness And just when you think the characters have got it all together, and that ...

    I don t think I ve ever read a book in which all the characters were so vile or at best, boring They seemed to utter something racist, fat phobic or downright rude every other page Was it necessary to have 2 characters regularly tell a 14 year old girl she was stupid I skim read the l...
