This is a great book for diehard fans of Downton Abbey with lots of pictures and history of the characters. Unfortunately the book was written at the beginning of season 3 so there is a great deal that has happened since its publication but it was nice to revisit previous storylines. Along with the fictitious characters there is a great deal of information about England and the aristocracy during the same time period of the 1920's. The actors add their impressions of the person they are portraying and I found it interesting to read their input. The photos are lovely and there are quite a few pages of objects, magazines, and fashion from the era ( )

Again, great reading for Downton Abbey fans, of whom there are legions. This will help bridge the gap between seasons. ( )

Very interesting time period. I love the PBS show. I love reading about the contrasts and differences between the up-stairs and down-stars lives. Lots of cool pictures. Would reccomend to my friends. ( )

First words
Over the last two rather extraordinary years, at the risk of sounding vain, I have often been asked why I thought Downton Abbey has been quite such a success. (Foreword by Julian Fellowes)
Lord Grantham -- Robert -- has many good qualities: he is kind, loyal to his family, loving to his wife, adoring of his daughters, a fair employer and generous to those around him.
