The Warden

Anthony Trollope, read by David Shaw-Parker. Naxos AudioBooks, unabridged, six CDs, 7.5 hrs., $41.98 ISBN 978-1-84379-686-2
This first novel in Trollope’s classic Chronicles of Barsetshire series pits reformer John Bold against Septimus Harding, the precentor of Barchester Cathedral and warden of Hiram’s Hospital, an almshouse supported by a bequest to the local diocese. As Bold works to expose the fact that more of the charity’s income goes to Harding than to its bedesmen, he begins to take a romantic interest in Harding’s youngest daughter, Eleanor. In this audio edition, narrator David Shaw-Parker delivers a winning performance that keeps listeners engaged throughout. With a deep, accented voice Shaw-Parker brings this 19th-century novel to life. His timing and tone are spot-on and he creates distinct voices for the book’s many characters. (Apr.)
