Barchester Towers

Winner of the 'Pick Up A Trollope' vote for the most popular Trollope novel. We read it together on Zoom from October 2020 to January 2021.

Professor John Bowen, editor of the Oxford World's Classics edition of Barchester Towers led the concluding seminar.

I am delighted that so many people have voted Barchester Towers as their favourite Anthony Trollope novel. It is the most wonderfully funny and satisfying read. Its cast of characters include some of the most memorable in all his books and they experience the full range of human emotions from grief to jealousy, to anger and love. They offer so much for everyone to discuss in the online book club meetings that the Trollope Society will run.
