Anthony Trollope's classic novel centers on Mr. Harding, a clergyman of great personal integrity whose charitable income far exceeds the purpose for which it was intended. On discovering this, young John Bold turns his reforming zeal toward exposing what he regards as an abuse of privilege, despite the fact that he is in love with Mr. Harding's daughter, Eleanor. Set in the world of the Victorian professional and landed classes he portrayed so superbly, Trollope explores the complexities of human motivation and social morality. The Warden is the first of the six classic Chronicles of Barsetshire novels, Trollope's best-loved and most famous work.



Audie Award Finalist, Classic, 2007
"Critics found The Warden a new voice among novelists; the book was acclaimed as clever, spirited, and promising much for the author's future as a writer of significance."(Donald Smalley, Anthony Trollope: The Critical Heritage)

7 hours of sheer pleasure

It is not only owing to the indisputable quality of this classic novel that the present recording is to be heartily recommended - the lively and inspired reading is equally to be praised. Simon Vance is recreating the characters as only an actor could be expected to do, his pleasant voice and beautiful clear diction, his fine hints of irony and ever changing timbres while he presents us with the different characters make for a reading that could not be equalled by any other medium. Don't miss this audiobook, it is really a treat !
