163. Life Below Stairs

Meh.

As a fan of Downton Abbey (although I was late to the viewing party), I was looking forward to reading Alison Maloney's Life Below Stairs and learning a little bit more about the intricacies of the Upstairs Downstairs set.  To be honest, I had to force myself to finish.  I didn't learn anything that I didn't pick up from watching Downton Abbey or other programs mainly found only on PBS stations.  A good book for someone who might know nothing about a life of service in Edwardian England but if you've even one episode, skip it.
