The third subject to receive the benefit of the author's moral outrage is the hypocrisy and narrow vision of the landed gentry in the person of the Marquis of Trowbridge, who treats his tenants as serfs and whose social code appears to be 'might is right'. The common sense of the pragmatic protagonist, Frank Fenwick, apparently very like Trollope himself, is a joy to hear.

Excellent story, very well narrated
Would you listen to The Vicar of Bullhampton again? Why?
I will definitely listen to this book again because it is a good story, well read.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I do not have a favourite character.
What about Peter Newcombe Joyce’s performance did you like?
His intonation was excellent with only one error in emphasis that I noticed. He performed the characters well, each with their own easily recognised voice. My only slight reservation is his tendancy to slightly slur his words and the appalling drawl with which he announces the chapters.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Given that this is a 22 hour long recording, it was too long for that.
Any additional comments?
I would highly recommend both author and narrator. I am very pleased with this purchase and would definitely buy more Trollope books read by this narrator. "He Knew He Was Right" could sorely use a good narrator, for instance.

How I missed Timothy West
I have enjoyed most of the Trollope novels narrated by Timothy West and have listened to them several times. I did not find the narrator as engaging and there seemed to be a thinner plot line than some of the other novel
