    • Sophie Campbell sets out to explore the typical English social season. She attends events such as the Chelsea Flower Show, the Royal Ascot, and the Henley Royal Regatta. Along the way, she also interviews people involved in these events about their historical significance. This book outlines her experiences. I particularly enjoyed the pictures, which really helped me visualize the different events.The author chose twelve different events, so none of them gets covered with a large amount of detai [...]


    • An interesting romp through 12 events in the English summer season. The author, a travel journalist, attends all 12 events and also gives a history of each event and how it started.


    • 3.5 stars. "The Season" is a look at the English Social Season, which takes place during the summer and acts as a who's who guide to English society. As a Yank and an Anglophile, I've been fascinated by the social season. We really don't have anything comparable on any large scale here in the States so I was interested to learn a little bit more about these customs.Ms. Campbell takes us through the entire social season and all of the various sets of customs for each event. These events include h [...]


    • A whirlwind indeed! Campbell takes us on a breezy tour through the English aristocratic social events of the "Season" - giving the reader a taste of the fashion and flippancy and also the historical development and importance of events such as the Chelsea Flower Show, the Royal Ascot, and the Henley Royal Regatta. It was a great introduction for me, an anglophile on the more historical side, and showed me that the "period drama" shows that I enjoy so much on TV really still have a modern equivil [...]


    • The premise of the book caught my attention, but the plodding prose and dreary historical rambles made this book into a slog. I think the author didn't really get behind the scenes or into the privileged ranks of British society to give us any more than the briefest of glimpses or the dullest of observations about the social Season.


    • Cricket, horses, tennis, gardens, lawns, operad a healthy dose of history to tell us how the English social season began, adapted, and morphed into what it is today. Very interesting for Anglophiles like myself who would love to be part of the crowd but live across the pond.


    • I won this in a first reads giveaway. All in all I found this to be an enjoyable book-as the jacket said it is a description of the English Social Season. I think the book would have been better if it had gone into more detail about fewer events but that is my only real complaint.
