WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Synchonicity: I was walking to the Library and on the way met my friend Bobby and we were discussing BookCrossing. Bobby thought it a brilliant idea. Bobby for many years used to own and run her own bookshop, The best second hand bookshop in Farnborough.
Synchonicity: The table on which I found the book was where I met my lovely Czech friend Iva almost one year ago to the day. One year and one week from the day we met she will be returning from Prague.
Anthony Trollope was one of the first English writers to write a series of novels that formed a series.
I had to study The Warden by Anthony Trollope for English literature when I was at college and it put me off Trollope for life.
I hated the book. I remember lending my copy to my Grandmother and her telling me she found it a very interesting book, but that was not my impression.
And that was how it would have been until I heard a dramatisation of some of the Trollope novels on BBC Radio 4, in the Classic serial slot.
The Warden is about the infighting for a stipendiary post of warden.
The Radio 4 series brought it all to life, the politics, the snobbery, the corruption, of life in the church. I found it fascinating. It brought about a reappraisal of Trollope and he went up in my estimation.
My college experience though shows how introduction to the wrong books can easily destroy a love of books, love of reading, love of good literature.
Fortunately for me, it did not turn me off good literature, but is could easily have done so.
