The Warden - David Skilton, Anthony Trollope I read Ralph The Heir, which Trollope considered his worst novel and I really enjoyed it. This book is the first in the series called the Barsetshire Chronicles, which are considered his "best" books. I have to say that I didn't find it as funny or engrossing or as insightful as Ralph the Heir. I still liked it, but I think RTH is a hard act to follow. Nevertheless, I'm moving on to the next novel in the series and we'll see if it gets better.
