Product Description

Review

“This extraordinary upstairs-downstairs drama, written by Oscar-winning 'Gosford Park' screenwriter Julian Fellowes, is a dramatic, intelligent, soapy, comic, and wise piece of work.” ―The Boston Globe on Downton Abbey

“There is no mystery about the potency of this series, slathered in wit, powered by storytelling of a high order.” ―The Wall Street Journal on Downton Abbey

“Possibly the best show of the year...'Downton Abbey' is all that 'Upstairs, Downstairs' was, and more.” ―The Los Angeles Times on Downton Abbey

From the Back Cover

From the authors of the instantNew York Times bestsellersThe Strain and The Fall comesthe final volume in one of the mostelectrifying thriller series in years

It’s been two years since the vampiric virus was unleashed in The Strain, and the entire world now lies on the brink of annihilation. There is only night as nuclear winter blankets the land, the sun filtering through the poisoned atmosphere for two hours each day—the perfect environment for the propagation of vampires.

There has been a mass extermination of humans, the best and the brightest, the wealthy and the influential, orchestrated by the Master—an ancient vampire possessed of unparalleled powers—who selects survivors based on compliance. Those humans who remain are entirely subjugated, interred in camps, and separated by status: those who breed more humans, and those who are bled for the sustenance of the Master’s vast army.

The future of humankind lies in the hands of a ragtag band of freedom fighters—Dr. Eph Goodweather, former head of the Centers for Disease Control’s biological threats team; Dr. Nora Martinez, a fellow doctor with a talent for dispatching the undead; Vasiliy Fet, the colorful Russian exterminator; and Mr. Quinlan, the half-breed offspring of the Master who is bent on revenge. It’s their job to rescue Eph’s son, Zack, and overturn this devastating new world order. But good and evil are malleable terms now, and the Master is most skilled at preying on the weaknesses of humans.

Now, at this critical hour, there is evidence of a traitor in their midst. . . . And only one man holds the answer to the Master’s demise, but is he one who can be trusted with the fate of the world? And who among them will pay the ultimate sacrifice—so that others may be saved?

This is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL book based on iTV's Downton Abbey! The publisher certainly didn't skimp when it came to quality and detail!

I wasn't expecting the book to be as long as it is (it's 300+ pages) but I'm delighted that the author took so much time and effort in writing it. The end result is highly satisfactory! It covers both the first and second seasons of the program and delves into every storyline, every character and every social event (be it a tea party or WWI). Estate life is also examined and fictional characters are compared to real-life people who lived in 19th century England. There is an additional chapter at the end of the book detailing all of the Behind-the-Scenes work that goes into filming the series. This book is crammed full of pictures and interesting tidbits concerning both the cast and crew - you'll absolutely love it if you're a fan of Downton Abbey!

I wonder if there will be another book release when the third series airs?

This book was issued after the second season. It provides vast amounts of historical background information on the nineteen ten’s period in Great Britain, especially as far as political and social changes are concerned, and WW2, as they impacted the aristocracy and their servants. Many of the actors give the reader their impressions of what it was like to contribute to the success of this period drama series. We are given virtual reality witness to how it would have been like to be Mary, Matthew, Robert, Cora, Carson, Thomas, etc at that time in the personae and circumstances that Julian Fellowes provided them.

The photographs are plentiful and gorgeous and the text by Jessica Fellowes, the nice of Julian, is vividly informative. Costumes have a prominent place in the contents of the book. The reader will realize what an artistic and logistic triumph the writers, actors, directors, producers, cinematographers, advisors, trades people and grunts accomplished. Several hundred people had to be in their right places at the right times, doing their best and for the most part they did. A must have for all avid Donwton'ers.

This companion book to the tv series is wonderful. Full of great history and information on the time period. Beautiful pictures as well. I am absolutely addicted to Downton Abbey and can't wait for season 3. This book is great to tie me over until then.

This takes me into a world gone by, its structure, its beauty, and its pain. While it is a time long gone, the human struggles of good versus evil, the desire to connect, to make a lasting impact, the quest for love, and the pain of loss remain the same. The World of Downton Abbey touches me at the deepest human part of me.

I originally saw this book on a recent trip to the UK from Vancouver and fell in love with it. Upon my return I purchased it for a dear friend's birthday - as she is also a Downton Abbey fan, she was over the moon. From the beautiful photos to the well written prose, this book is a MUST for any fan of this wonderful series.

I bought this book as a gift for a close relative and she absolutely loved it. She is a fan of the TV show and now enjoys reading about the show and looking at the pictures. She also commented that the writing is excellent.
Thanks Amazon!
