Beschreibung

Exclusively from Audible
Doctor Thorne is the third audiobook in Anthony Trollope's series known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire. Long regarded as one of Trollope's greatest works, it is a complex story of love, greed and illegitimacy. Set in fictional Barsetshire, it concerns the romantic challenges facing Doctor Thorne's penniless niece, Mary, and Frank Gresham, the only son of the impoverished squire of Greshambury. Mary falls in love with Frank but he is constrained by the need to marry well to restore the family fortunes and Greshambury estate. Despite the promptings of his family to consider a Miss Dunstable, heiress to a fortune, Frank's affections persist, and the humane Doctor Thorne, as Mary's protector, must confront the prejudices of the mid-Victorian society.
Timothy West's narration enhances all the wit and satire that one expects from Trollope. Full of snobbery and hypocrisy, it is a social comedy full of some of Trollope's most brilliant characters.

Kritikerstimmen

"Doctor Thorne is engaging, witty, profoundly moving, and full of emotional strands that seem as relevant today as when it was written. I love it." (Julian Fellowes)

Marriage and Money

Classic Trollope, beautifully rendered by Timothy West. A high song on Victorian values now all but forgotten. Critical of rank without heart and money without merit. Highly recommended!

Lady Arabella - Masterful Spin Doctor

Würden Sie Doctor Thorne noch mal anhören? Warum?

Timothy West ist ein wundervoller Sprecher und Anthony Trollope ein großartiger Geschichtenerzähler mit Anmutungen von Long-Form Journalism. In diesem Buch 3 der Serie ist nicht so viel davon drin, dafür könnte, was Lady Arabella so von sich gibt, auch dem ausgebufftesten Spin-Doctor noch was beibringen.

Sie ist eine Meisterin in der Kunst mit Hilfe von vollkommen wahrhaftigen Tatsachen zu lügen, daß sich die Deckenbalken biegen. Einfach Wundervoll, ein Hör- oder Lese-Muss - je nach Geschmack.
