Review

"Like a visit of an English country estate: breezy, beautiful, and charming." 
- "The" "New York Times Book Review"
 
"[A] guilty pleasure of a novel [that] seems authentic down to the wallpaper and the Wellingtons. Hilarious sharp, entertaining, and unforgiving."
- Anna Quindlen ""Snobs," by Julian Fellowes, is an hilariously snobbish novel about hilariously snobbish people involved in a society scandal. Froth at its best. His writing is as stylish as his story. Mr. Fellowes knows his turf well."
- Dominick Dunne
"I couldn't put "Snobs" down: Who could resist a great story of a beautiful, ambitious girl on her climb to the turreted top of the castle-hopping set? As witty as he is smart, Julian Fellowes is the Oscar-winning, Oscar Wilde of the minute." - Plum Sykes
"Julian Fellowes's witty, wise depiction of the lives and lunacies of upper-class English life is just my cup of tea...."
- Jane Stanton Hitchcock
""Snobs" is everything you wo

4.0 out of 5 stars Fellowes on Snobs Dec 27 2012
By Nancy Talbot Doty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a two-novel volume by the creator of "Downton Abbey". Both stories are set in a post WWII era. When I began to read these books, I realized that I had read the second story, "Past Imperfect" previously. Sometimes this is a good idea. As a gobbling sort of reader, I charge through my new books in search of story-line and plot. A second reading gives one a chance to really appreciate characterization and style. I cannot describe my admiration on re-reading of Julian Fellowes familiarity with, and satirical style of recreating, the attitudes and biases of the British upper classes--the aristocracy and the upper middle-class strivers. His portrayal of the "Outs" trying to get in and of the "Ins" trying to keep them out is a literary delight. Bring us more, Julian!

Vintage Julian Fellowes. Very interesting and entertaining. He does have a way with words and one learns about customs of the era.

4.0 out of 5 stars Snobs review Oct. 22 2012
By wildflower girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Julian Fellows is not only a good screenwriter, but a sharp social critic, especially of the upper English classes. "Snobs" follows one woman's odyessey into marriage into a rich family, with unhappiness as a unforeseen side effect. "Past Imperfect" follows one wealthy middle age man, as he helps a dying rich friend (whom he really hated when young) try to find out what woman he slept with (there were many) bore his child, so he can leave that person his estate. I'm slogging through, towards the end. It's a little too long. But that ocassional outburst of humorous criticism makes me press on!
