I really wanted to love this book. Julian Fellowes appears to be the man of the moment after the recent success of Downton Abbey(which was amazing), but...

For me it was too long a wild goose chase leading up to 'the incident', which wasn't such a big deal in my opinion. Maybe I'm missing the significance of the time & the subtle manners and rules that society was only just breaking free from. It did pick up a pace towards the end, maybe that was in part due to the fact that a man's life was on the verge of ending.

I am relieved that the person the narrator was searching for was revealed in the end. However, I don't understand what the purpose of not revealing the name/identity of the narrator was.

So overall, I liked it, but wasn't gripped by it.
