    When the concierge of The Alexander, a historic Atlanta apartment building, invites his fellow residents to join him for weekly screenings of Downton Abbey, four very different people find themselves connecting with the addictive drama, and - even more unexpectedly - with one another.... For Samantha, Claire, Brooke - and Edward, who arranges the weekly gatherings - it will be a season of surprises as they forge a bond that will sustain them through some of life's hardest moments - all of it reflected in the unfolding drama of Downton Abbey.

    Jean says: "Orlagh Cassidy makes this story a joyful read."
    "Couldn't Stop Listening"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of While We Were Watching Downton Abbey to be better than the print version?

    The narrator, Orlagh Cassidy, definitely added to the spell the book cast. She was amazing with her voices.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how the author wove Downton Abbey into the story line. She also added a lot of contemporary detail which added to the story. I enjoyed the character development.


    What does Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voices definitely brought the characters to life and added to the weaving together of the Downton Abbey story line with the main character's story lines.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I couldn't put the audio book down, so to speak. It was like 'reading" a good book that keeps one from one's daily tasks.


    Any additional comments?

    Downton Abbey fans are definitely the target audience. I think it helps if you have seen the program. There are definitely spoilers in the book if you haven't.
