    I m halfway through this book but I m finding it hard to battle on I bought it because I m a huge Downtown Abbey fan and I love historical novels in general I don t mind a slow moving plot if there s deep characterization and atmospheric description along the way, however, this book has nothing to offer in those terms either A big disappointment I feel compelled to finish it because I very rarely abandon a book once started I keep hoping for a miracle that it will pick up but 55% into the book that seems to be less and less likely.

    Another winner from the creator of Downtown Abbey Very interesting reading about secrets and lurking scandal among high society Mr Fellows really knows how to draw out a story depicting the class divisions and distinction that existed during the Victorian era This story brings together two families from very different backgrounds One is wealthy and old aristocracy, born to the manor, the other a self made millionaire from trade, not exactly welcome in the drawing room of aristocracy I found it very interesting It held all the elements of a good read, believeable characters, suspense, light romance and murderous intent Highly recommended.

    Love the TV series which so far 3 episodes in is very true to the book I just couldn t wait to find out what was happening I can t put my finger on it but I think the way that it is written seems to be for older teenagers in very easy English Nothing wrong with that at all, I just felt that it lacked something Good storyline though told better on screen.

    I enjoyed the story but, like some other readers, found it took quite a while to get going I actually didn t mind that but felt it was spoiled by the very rapid way the story all come together towards the end It just felt too rushed after the leisurely start.

    Julian Fellowes has written two terrific modern comedies of manners Having also been a fan of Downton Abbey, I was very excited about the prospect of Belgravia, but sadly it turned out to be a huge letdown A penny dreadful novelette plot, with two dimensional characters A previous reviewer went so far as to suggest that this may have been ghost written, and I wonder if there s something in this, as, being familiar with Mr Fellowes style, it certainly didn t read like one of his novels, regardless of the era in which it is set.

    I loved this book so much that I ve bought it for several of my friends.It is one of those books that the first few pages are a little slow and then once you get into it you feel very sorry it s about the finish and you start reading slowly so that it doesn t finish I loved it Julian Fellowes is an excellent author and I can t wait for his next oeuvre.

    I read this book over three evenings and whilst a good story it was somewhat a waste of time What parents, during that era, would not have rushed out and checked the validity of their daughter s marriage in the first place So rigid where the times Having said that I think it will adapt well to screen and I look forward to watching it It also wouldn t be Julian Fellowes without the downstairs element.
