Read the summary, that's pretty much the book in it's entireity right there. And if you're debating about reading the book, that summary should take care of that and save you some time.

When I started reading this book I seriously debated stopping so many times, it was just so boring. I guess this should be a good indication I should never go to England and try the art of society climbing. Luckily about a quarter to half way into the book the story finally picked up a bit and I didn't feel I had to give it up.

I'll give Fellowes credit, it didn't read like a script (since that's what he's been writing until this) and both the language and characters were rich and full. The only thing lacking was a continuous push in the story, a nice flow.

I gave this book a C because in my opinion it fell as mediocre. I honestly think that anyone else can pick up this book and will either love it or hate it. It's such a toss up, so if you want to give it a try, don't let me stop you.
