    (The Shooting Party) PDF KINDLE ↠ Isabel Colegate I struggled to get through this book and it is less than 200 pages To me reading it is like standing in pointed toe shoes in a long reception line of people you barely meet but feel you must remember their name as they will pop up againI neither could relate nor befriend any of these characters Really shouldn't there be at least one likeable character per novel???

The Shooting Party

review The Shooting Party The Shooting Party review ✓ 3 download ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ã Isabel Colegate Up of men and women gather at Sir Randolph Nettleby's estate for a shooting party Opulent adulterous moving assuredly. I read this book many years ago when I was uite young and still believed in fairy tale true love We humans love to tell stories and believe them for all sorts of reasons SPOILER ALERT The hero and heroine will never marry and form a family unit however the heroine s husband is silently aware of their lifelong liaison and even approves the hero s bloodlines This is an acceptable form of behaviour in their set This book severely challenged by youthful illusions but I came to realize years and years later that we get out of life if we stop wishing for fairy tale endings stop living a magazine lifestyle and just stay in touch with reality and with the admittedly mundane aspects of every day life Monogamy as practiced by birds and other species that mate for life serves a purpose the continuation of the species Ironically for some birds not all of the eggs if any belong to the male who is helping to keep the nest intact and raise the young Cowbirds are famous for laying their eggs in other species nests So while I still love to read a heart warming novel with a dash of romance it is a good practice to stay grounded in reality The realistically drawn flawed characters in The Shooting Party rightly or wrongly make the best of the cards they were dealt are we any happier as humans now that we have so much choice and freedom regarding who we choose as our mates Aren t most of us still trying to conform to a cookie cutter life doing what is expected of us A very good read and one that will stay with you for so many different reasonsThe 1985 movie adaptation starring James Mason was EXCELLENT

Touted as the book that inspired Downton Abbey in an ugly and annoying sticker that I can t peel off of my book without a mess I m surprised I m not seeing people reading this book It really does read like a BBC drama for anyone looking to get a dose of a British country house in Edwardian England The story revolves around one weekend when a shooting party is held on the Oxfordshire estate of Sir Randolph Nettleby There are affairs to be considered when doing the seating plans and rivalries to deal with on the shoot Colgate s world reveals what was wonderful and ridiculous in society in this era Here is a conversation that I particularly enjoyedOnce she said to him Supposing there are some other people somewhere people we don t knowHe had looked at her seriously What sort of peoplePerfectly charming people Really delightful intelligent amusing civilizedand we don t know them and nobody we know knows then And they don t know us and they don t know anyone we knowBob had thought for a moment and then he had said It s simply impossible But if it were not impossible then I don t think I should want to know such people I don t think I should have anything in common with themDefinitely a book to add to your Edwardian TBR list
