Publisher's Summary

His beloved wife having died in childbirth, Phineas Finn finds Irish society and his job as a poorhouse inspector dull and unsatisfying, particularly after the excitement of his former career as a Member of Parliament. Back in England, the Whigs are determined to overturn the Tory majority in the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Since Finn had once been considered the most promising of the younger set, he is encouraged to run for office again. Bribery, romance, and murder are peppered throughout this Trollope novel.
The fourth novel in the Palliser series, Phineas Redux stands alone as a compelling work of political intrigue, personal crisis, and romantic jealousy.

Old classic still resonates today.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I have enjoyed reading the whole "Palliser" sries by Trollope, but the two books about our hero - Phineas Finn were the most enjoyable. Set in the late 1880's they are a gentle satire about the "game" of politics that resonates today.

What other book might you compare Phineas Redux to and why?

Before reading Phineas Redux, readers should try Phineas Finn as this is the story of his first foray into politics, while Phineas Redux is his return.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were many moments, but the whole book was an ejoyable journey into a different time and palce.

For all lovers of the Victorian novel

What did you like about this audiobook?

It doesn't get any better than this. It will be good if you have listened to the other novels in the series, most importantly, Phineas Finn. Timothy West is the very best reader of these novels -- how can he do all the voices so expertly? He helps you appreciate the language far more than you could if you were reading.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

Yes, immensely.
