The Claverings

The Claverings by Anthony Trollope
By: (1815-1882)

"I consider the story as a whole to he good, though I am not aware that the public ever corroborated that verdict." - the author
The Claverings is the best wrought of the novels designed for The Cornhill, and as surely conceived as any book he ever wrote." - Sadleir.
"It is a novel of atmosphere, and the atmosphere is of that sort very dangerous for the English novelist, the atmosphere captured so supremely well by Thackeray the green-lighted, close-scented gambling rooms, the shabby adventures of half-deserted spas, the shelving beaches of foreign watering-places, concealed accents, stolen passports, impoverished counts and impertinent ladies' maids.... Trollope's most serious attempt to escape from his own personality." - Walpole

Subject: Mostly grwat
This is a great book with mostly great readers. There is one american gentleman that breaths in so loudly that it is hideously distracting!
