I did actually recommend it
No. It isn't a terribly bad read, but I have to say it was a bit boring.
Richard has a nice voice and I enjoyed listening to the book read by him. However, I don't think he necessarily added anything extraordinary to the story other than the "British" touch with his excellent voice.
This isn't a book I would want to read/listen to again.
The writing was smart and witty with the perfect amount of British dryness while still appealing to the American reader. I felt like I was listening to an old classic rather than a modern novel, though, language was modern enough to be accessible by anyone. It was quite the enjoyable, well written read and will be recommending!
Amusing, Brilliant and insightful
The enagement party.
no, his voice put me to sleep.
I believe its a perfect title
A quick summer read.

A novel about the manners about the "haute bourgeois" and the british aristocracy, Fellowes is following the footsteps of Austen, Trollope, and other 19th century novelists, and doing it very very well. The book is humorous but not hysterically funny, but is also, in my experience, true. The behaviors, concerns, desires of the characters repeat themselves in the US as well. I have a few minor literary quibbles, but repeat, minor. Its also exceedingly well read, with much subtlety.
