5.0 out of 5 stars brock-lovely
I love all things Victorian and found this book stirred the imagination leaving the reader with no doubt what life was like for everyone living under a Victorian roof.A very good read which was hard to put down.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring
Sluggish read, prodded like an uninteresting documentary. Felt it was very sketchy and did not flow well, not a good read.

really enjoyed this insight into something i knew very little about and so glad i was not born into an age when this type of hardship had to be endured by the working class employed as staff.

Quite interesting, gives a broad look at the differing attitudes of people from middle class and upper class to the servants in their household. L.k. Fraser

3.0 out of 5 stars very one sided, 2 Feb 2014

This review is from: Life in a Victorian Household (Kindle Edition)
The title of this book is misleading. It deals entirely with domestic service in the nineteenth century, but has very little to say about the employers of these servants. It is a one dimensional version of a very complex subject and consequently rather dull. There are other books which deal with this topic in a much more rational and far more interesting fashion

Not what I expected, such a boring read, I didn't even finish it and that is very unusual for me not to finish a book.

There is always a fascination for Victoriana. We have lots of historical information but we want to know how ordinary people lived their lives. This book goes some way towards filling in the gaps in our knowledge.
