The city of Barchester, awaiting the appointment of a new bishop, has an upsetting awakening with the appearance of Bishop Proudie and his aide, Obadiah Slope, whose unctuous ways polarize the entire community. To hear this story is one of life's treats. As Trollope created the citizens of Barchester, so Stephen Thorne's reading gives these citizens the kiss of life. To find the core of each character is an art, but to be able to illustrate the entire range of the character's emotions is beyond artistry. Thorne obviously studied the book well, for the breadth of his comprehension of the novel makes the plot easier to understand. What a boon for students to hear this classic as presented by Thorne, and what a delight for everyone to enjoy the re-creation of a village. J.P.
