2.0 out of 5 stars The cardboard box was the most fun thing here!!, 12 April 2010
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Not impressed - bought for my 8 year old daughter - she was bored after 5 minutes. I could have picked up the pebbles off the beach and painted them for a fraction of the price - not to be recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read - good bedtime book!!!!, 12 April 2010
Needed:
1. More colour photos
2. At least three volumes instead of one to incorporate more detail
3. Nothing much else - a good read and good, if limited, information

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 April 2010
Was slightly disappointed with this tome as I felt it left out many details and even many well known authors (mainly 20th Century female authors). Was occasionally dry and boring and seemed to jump around between chapters. Not really to be recommended to general literature readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Succinct and Informative, 12 April 2010
Good, short, to the point handbook on the most common aspects of british architectural styles over the ages. Doesn't cover in much detail but good to be used as a basic reference guide to dating buildings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative but slightly confusing, 12 April 2010
Lots of great information from English history but set out in a slightly confusing and very chauvanistic manner (women did exist in Ye Olde England you know!). A good bedtime read but the subject matter is too great for one volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great taster for the full diaries!, 12 April 2010
I really enjoyed this small pamphlet style booklet. Lees-Milne is a scream and an absolute prime example of his vintage. Some say that he is very snobbish and upperclass with dreadfully old fashioned opinions - well, of course he is and that is why his diaries are such a success - he was writing about his own kind - but with a humourist twist. Can't wait to finish reading all the other diaries. Lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read, 12 April 2010
I love this book. I bought it years ago from a National Trust shop and I've returned to it again and again. It is a truly readable and entertaining book written with much humanity. It is the story of a house, its restoration, the fmaily who owned it, but mainly the servants who staffed it. A very easy yet informative book.
