Which Trollope next?

75 Books Challenge for 2017

Now that the group reads of Anthony Trollope's 'Barchester' and 'Palliser' novels have been wrapped up, there has been some interest expressed in going on to some other of the author's (many!) novels.

A group read of the expanded edition of The Duke's Children is already slated for later in the year, September or October.

It would also be possible to slot in another Trollope read in June or July, if there was sufficient interest.

Other than his two famous series, the 'imperative' Trollope novels are usually considered to be He Knew he Was Right and The Way We Live Now.

Other suggestions made so far include:
- The Bertrams
- Orley Farm
- The Vicar Of Bullhampton

Meanwhile, my own obsession with 'in order' naturally suggests The Macdermots Of Ballycloran.

If you would be interested in reading more works by Anthony Trollope, please say so here; and if there is a particular novel you would like to suggest, feel free to add it to the list.

Because I have an unread audiobook of The Way we Live Now I would like to read that next, but since most of Trollope's works are available free or cheap as ebooks I'd happily go with any other!

I am more interested in reading The Way We Live Now or He Knew He Was Right than the other more obscure works. I may or may not join in on some of the lesser known works, but I will definitely join in on those two.

I'm interested in all of the ones listed with the possible exception of The Macdermots Of Ballycloran (sorry Liz). Although if you do read that I may try it anyway.

You cut me to the heart. :)

Okay: from input here plus suggestions offered elsewhere, I am going to propose a group read of He Knew He Was Right in July.

Please let me know if this does / does not suit you.
