As for what it was about, it seemed to be about several things. There were themes relating to repressed love, and to a man compulsively loyal to his work and unable to live a life of his own. The most interesting was the question as to whether it was acceptable for a small group of wealthy elite men, hosted by the butler's employer, and presuming "superior judgment," to influence affairs of state through private meetings outside the boundaries of government--affecting such things as England's relationship with Germany prior to World War 2.
The movie was also very good and it was helpful to have seen it before reading the book.
This is surely one of the best 100 books of all time.
