The Way We Live Now

The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope
By: (1815-1882)

The Way We Live Now is a scathing satirical novel published in London in 1875 by Anthony Trollope, after a popular serialization. It was regarded by many of Trollope’s contemporaries as his finest work.

One of his longest novels (it contains a hundred chapters), The Way We Live Now is particularly rich in sub-plot. It was inspired by the financial scandals of the early 1870s, and lashes at the pervading dishonesty of the age, commercial, political, moral, and intellectual. It is one of the last memorable Victorian novels to have been published in monthly parts.

I enjoyed the story and the reading, although it seemed a bit repetitious. The characters and the plot held my attention.

Long story, but memorable characters and a tireless reader with a voice I was comfortable with. It isn't a serious novel. Originally a serialization, it is romance and family life and finance. Despite the age it was written, there are women with minds of their own. I liked that. :)
