©2008 Julian Fellowes; (P)2009 BBC Audio
Loved it. In my opinion, every character was memorable. I have always loved and enjoyed British writers and novels. I am a britishphile at heart. Oh, oh, oh, the narration will make you wish the book was much, much longer. ENJOY!
author fills out a layer of society most don't get to experience and compares two distinct time periods: the Sixties and the present
some observations of cultural mores were spot on and, though it was "frightfully verbose" in the way only Brits can be, I wanted to see who the woman turned out to be. Great character studies
I love everything Julian Fellowes does and I think a modern piece like this would be great to see on film. The 60's would be as far back as it goes but then again that was a long day at time ago. Another age as well.
Boring, boring boring!! Way too much description & history instead of getting on with the story. I simply gave up listening after 3 hours. If you must read this, upped for the abridged version.
