5.0 out of 5 stars So much better than expected, 1 Jun. 2014
This review is from: The Edwardian Country House (Hardcover)
My heart sank when this arrived as I hadn't read the other reviews and don't own a television so had know idea this was related to a TV series. But I must confess, the book really surprised on the upside. A thoroughly scholarly book by Ms.Gardiner, and in the end I even found myself intrigued by the bits about the TV show. Hilarious to read about the Bolshiness of the servants (what exactly did they expect?), and of the ludicrous attempts at authenticity. For example the Butler trying to impose a no-talking rule in the servants hall. As anyone who knows anything about the period this was absurd. Even made me want to watch the series, but perhaps I'd be disappointed.

A very good read. Interesting, well laid out and with pictures and 'side information' stratigically placed. One couldn't ask for more

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT READ, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fabulous book based on the television series of the same name. It includes a lot more information than they were able to fit into the programme and is a fantastic tool for anyone interested in the Victorian/Edwardian periods. BRILLIANT!!
