Checking in!

SandyC (sandyc88) | 1117 comments Hello! I got this from the library so I can start any time. :-)

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3110 comments I plan on getting the audiobook but I don't have it yet. I have to wait until the 5th to get credits

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3110 comments I lied. I have it now. So whenever you guys want to start I'm game. It's not a long book so it shouldn't take too long to read it.

Tomorrow works for me. But i will be reading 50 pages a day.

SandyC (sandyc88) | 1117 comments Tomorrow would work.

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3110 comments Tomorrow it is!

I'm very excited about this book , my sister has been recommending one to me for ages.

message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

I have no idea what it is about though . I have this weird habit of not reading the blurbs of books i have been recommended by people i know will suggest good books.

Somehow like starting on a complete blank slate.

SandyC (sandyc88) | 1117 comments Loved the movie with Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson

I didn't know there was a movie too. Will watch it after the book.

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3110 comments I like going into a book with only a vague notion of what it's about too.

I had no idea it was a movie either. In fact I've never even heard of the book until it popped up on the BR thread. I'm excited to get started on it

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3110 comments I've started and so far so good. I like the narrator.

I have started too . And since i just watched the latest epi of agent carter , somehow I'm hearing mr Jarvis's voice in my head as I'm reading it.

Its a nice beginning! Seems interesting!

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3110 comments The audiobook has him sounding more like Colin Firth.

I'm done for tonight upto pg 28 when he checks into the guest house

Like i said it's more because of me just watching the show.

Good night !

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3110 comments 50%-ish (view spoiler)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 1117 comments Just read about 20 pages.
I am a huge Downton Abbey fan and this book has that same kind of atmosphere. In my head, I am hearing Anthony Hopkins and Mr. Molesley from DA when I read.

message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

I have seen 2 seasons of DA. Am looking forward to seeing the rest.

I'm not reading this today. I'm having very bad cramps and pms and just want to read some fluff.

Hopefully be better by tomorrow and get back to this.

Feel better soon. Watch some DA! :-)

Thanks Sandy! I wish i could but i can barely get out of bed .

So it's just ebooks on my phone and trying to sleep.

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3110 comments Sorry you aren't feeling well, Karen.

Well, I'm finished. It was more slowly paced than what I generally go for but I still liked this. Stevens was quite the character. I can't imagine being so removed from my own emotions. I enjoyed the flash backs of him and Miss Kenton. But when it started getting more into politics I got bored. I paid just enough attention to the scenes so I could get the gist and not miss something important but honestly I wanted to skip those parts.

Now I'm going to have to look up the movie!

SandyC (sandyc88) | 1117 comments Done.
