GOREGOUS and so thorough!,
This review is from: The World of Downton Abbey (Hardcover)
I put this book on my Christmas Wish List because I am a huge Downton Abbey fan and thought I would like it "no matter what". When I opened the gift containing the book and leafed through the pages, I was ecstatic! It far exceeded my expectations and is, by far, my very favorite gift this year!
The photos are incredibly beautiful and there are loads of them. Scenes from the series, casual shots on location in-between filming segments, historical photos, etc., etc. The written content is equally rich and wonderful. Lots of interviews with the cast, much information about the house (Highclere Castle), and very interesting sections discussing British history, culture, politics, and so on.
My only caution is that includes a lot of information and photos from Season 2. So...if you haven't watched all of Season 2 and the Christmas Special, and don't want to spoil the suspense of watching them, get the book but don't peek until you've watched all of those episodes.
Other than that....if your a Downton fan, you will LOVE this book!
