Agree with other reviewers that the narration was quality and also that the plot was predictable. Family secrets within secrets, carriages, descriptions of gowns, haughty peers - all the expected & satisfying elements are there. I rate this as OK -- mainly because there was so much repetition -- the characters' drawn-out and ultimately exasperating rumination about "should I say something about this or not?"

If you like Downton Abbey you will love this book!

The story is somewhat predictable, but still fun, and the narrator, Juliet Stevenson, is superb.

A worthy follow-up to the ever-so-popular Downton Abbey for Dear Uncle Julian. Much romancing, intriguing and self-consciousness over social rank throughout, with strong female characters and the occasional despicable cad.
The denouement struck me as particularly predictable in a classic, Shakespearean Comedy sense, but the journey there featured some fine prose and unexpectedly poignant internal moments.
Lastly, the narrator does a fantastic job. Pip pip, cheerio and capital good!

Absolutely mesmerizing story which goes to greater heights with Juliet Stevenson's narration - brilliant interpretation of Fellowes' sweeping story.
