    Ebook á Habits of the House PDF Æ Habits of PDF \ habits free, house kindle, Habits of ebok, Habits of the House EpubExpecting Downton Abbey at 17 Belgrave Suare is not a reality in Habits of the House I'm probably one of the few that cannot give this book a good rating Fay Weldon is certainly an accomplished writer; she's written some twenty successful books and is to be admired for her talents But the comparison to Downton Abbey is completely exaggerated and misguided for Downton fans We love Downton because of the luster of the intimate characters the sweeping romances and the immediacy of the twists and turns of their lives And we grew to love them faults and all In Habits of the House the characters are like black and white portraits on a wall and pretty much unlikeable Lady Rosina is practically a caricature of arrogance I found Arthur to be so self absorbed and obnoxious I really didn't care if he married or not which is the thrust of the story Isobel and Robert Dull as dust and nothing near the endearing elegance and sensitivity of Cora and Robert Grantham at Downton And the downstairs

    Ebook á Habits of the House PDF Æ Habits of PDF \ habits free, house kindle, Habits of ebok, Habits of the House EpubIs this trash Probably so I can't think of much redeeming value here It will most likely slip through my brain like water through a sieve leaving not much behind But it was an incredibly enjoyable few hours of reading and that says something Hurray for trashJudith Krantz and John Jakes and Jackie Collins visit Downton Abbey; Habits of the House is injected with historical sex and scandal As a novel Habits of the House is simply written with short punchy sentences The characters are like little prizes in the Christmas cake; as you eat your way through the deliciousness you keep finding new characters to rea

    Ebook á Habits of the House PDF Æ Habits of PDF \ habits free, house kindle, Habits of ebok, Habits of the House EpubEver since reading and watching the TV series ‘The Forsyte Saga’ in my teens I’ve had a passion for late VictorianEdwardian British stories I was very excited to receive a copy of ‘Habits of the House’ set in 1899 The story revolves around the household of the Earl of Dilberne He himself is deeply in debt from both business ventures gone badly and from trying to keep up with his friend the spendthrift Price of Wales; his wife Isobel daughter of a tradesman who brought money to the marriage spends on clothing and dinners His daughter Rosina spends her time going to lectures of the leftist kind and despises the moneyed class while enjoying the advantages it offers His son and heir Arthur cares nothing for business

    Ebook á Habits of the House PDF Æ Habits of PDF \ habits free, house kindle, Habits of ebok, Habits of the House EpubIf I may use writer terminology A great uite vast deal of telling in this book and not a lot of showing Many conversations are the author telling us what Rosina said rather than letting Rosina come on stage and say it This creates a distancing effect which is uncongenial As a result it is difficult to care about the characters Nor does it help that there is not a great deal of action; the pace can best be described as glacial All the action that does occur is of the most uotidian I long for alien bombardment with death rays or camo clad commandos attacking the breakfast room with AKs and flamethrowers or a character from Charles Dickens to come barging in being colorful and stealing t
