You Would Have Thought It Would Be Better Proofrea

by Dave P on 1/30/2013

Downton Abbey is currently in its third season in the US. The book appears to be primarily for the first season. One could expect a disclaimer or an addendum. That is disappointing, but tolerably so. However, the book was poorly proofread--simple grammar problems seemed to proliferate. If we are to enter into the very proper world of Downton Abbey, surely the description could be grammatically up to the high quality of the production of the TV show. Read More

Excellent Gift Book

Purchased this item as a gift. The book provides additional insight that nicely supplements the Downton Abbey series and captures the world of the early 20th century in prose and pictures from the view of the British upper class. Read More

From the Publisher
Editors Note A companion book to the popular British series, which also aired in the United States on PBS, includes full-color photos throughout.
Annotation In THE WORLD OF DOWNTON ABBEY, Jessica Fellowes offers a behind-the-scenes look at the popular PBS series, a soap opera-like confection about life in a British manor house at the turn of the 20th century. Fellowes is the niece of series creator Julian Fellowes, and she was given full access to the actors and set. She discovers that the actor who plays the chauffeur Branson must drive a vintage auto with a balky clutch and that dining scenes can take some 10 hours to capture on film, among other such bits of trivia. Fans of the show will find much to amuse them, and history buffs will appreciate the many passages on social and cultural history that the author includes.
