This substantial text is the fifth in what is known as Trollope’s Palliser Novels, but one needn’t wait to enjoy THE PRIME MINISTER‚ for it doesn’t require an understanding of the earlier installments. Initially, this audiobook may intimidate the listener with its lengthy sentences and majestically voiced narrator. However, before long, the listener will be immersed in all the elements of good storytelling, especially Simon Vance’s superior narration. Vance’s performance underscores this timeless study of human nature with its interwoven subplots, social commentary, political intrigue, and well-developed characters. There are subtle notes of humor and irony as well. Vance’s character distinctions are nuanced and effective, much like Trollope’s prose style.
