I'm glad we've got at least one Trollopian here, Sirena. I'm still at the same level as Hamlet in that I've always wanted to tackle the Barsetshire Chronicles, one after another, as I did with the twelve Anthony Powell books once, but I've somehow not revved up enough to start and have plenty of other literary things to occupy my mind, being a literary translator. But as a translator, it is important to read good literature in the language you translate into, British English in my case. So one day I will pick up "The Warden" and read it cover to cover. Whether I will ever read all 47 of his novels is doubtful, but I did enjoy his autobiography, over half of which I have read, for its clear style. I believe Trollope also sorted out the Irish Post Office, when he wasn't writing novels, and seems to have travelled widely.
