The fifth book in The Palliser series.

The fifth book in The Palliser series. Readers interested in the political life and maneouvering of Victorian politicians will find it fascinating. There is no better writing among men; if Trollope penned a thousand volumes, I would find the time to read them all. The Prime Minister is the fourth of five of the Palliser series. Start with the first.

The Palliser novels are six novels by Anthony Trollope. They were more commonly known (before the BBC aired a television adaptation) as the Parliamentary Novels. The common threads throughout the series are the wealthy aristocrat and politician Plantagenet Palliser, and his wife, Lady Glencora. The plots involve British and Irish politics in varying degrees, specifically in and around Parliament.

Plantaganet Palliser, Prime Minister of England - a man of power and prestige, with all the breeding and inherited wealth that goes with it - is appalled at the inexorable rise of Ferdinand Lopez.

But when the interloper makes a socially advantageous marriage, Palliser must decide whether to stand by his wife’s support for Lopez in a by-election or leave him to face exposure as a fortune-hunting adventurer.

Even Lady Glencora, the wife of Plantagenet Palliser, prime minister of England, supports the exotic imposter.

The fifth book in The Palliser series. When I started this I thought it was going to be the best book to date but the story fell away at the end. The main character Ferdinand Lopez is a wonderful villain. He's immoral, manipulative but in some instances oddly vulnerable. This is the only book in the series to date where a male character has overshadowed his female counterparts.

I found many of the characters surrounding Ferdinand to be gullible and a bit irritating, particularly Ferdinand's wife Emily Wharton. Also felt that there were shades of "Can You Forgive Her" on offer here regarding Emily, Ferdinand and Arthur.

Did enjoy catching up with characters from the previous novels, particularly the delightfully scheming Lizzie Eustace.

A veritable cornucopia of local color, impeccable narrative and preciously meticulous character depiction. Maybe not my most favorite Trollope novel......but could it be because I've gone into his work with a vengeance ....reading his work one after the other in a veritable feast of Trollope fiction? Favourite moment? The fantastic description of the train at the busy junction! Priceless!

I have to start by saying that I am not a big Trollope fan, a heresy to many friends. However, I thought this novel of the Palliser series was I bit more interestingly constructed than most. But once again, I thought the characters were unnuanced, and not particularly likable or interesting.

The Prime Minister, one of Trollope's series of Palliser novels, is a well-constructed and very interestingly developed novel, deservimg to be read more widely than it is by today's readers. Readers interested in the political life and maneouvering of Victorian politicians will find it fascinating.

There is no better writing among men; if Trollope penned a thousand volumes, I would find the time to read them all. The Prime Minister is the fourth of five of the Palliser series. Start with the first. You will likely be compelled to continue, as I am.

If you like books in the Jane Austen vein, then you will enjoy this book immensely! I stumbled across this author and have been pleasantly surprised and delighted by his writing!

Of the six Palliser novels, this is the fifth and least entertaining so far, in my opinion. Much ado about nothing for our heroine.
Beautifully developed characters, the commentary on the times and the place of women. I have ordered the whole series.
