    Description

    The final book in the landmark Cazalet Chronicles, recently broadcast on BBC Radio 4.

    It is the 1950s and as the Cazalets' beloved matriarch, the Duchy, passes away, she takes with her the last remnants of a world - of great houses and servants, of class and tradition - in which the Cazalets have thrived. Louise, now divorced, becomes entangled in a painful affair; while Polly and Clary must balance marriage and motherhood with their own ideas and ambitions.

    Hugh and Edward, now in their sixties, are feeling ill-equipped for this modern world; while Villy, long abandoned by her husband, must at last learn to live independently. But it is Rachel, who has always lived for others, who will face her greatest challenges yet...

    Events will converge at Christmas at Home Place; on which a new generation of Cazalets will descend. Only one thing is certain, nothing will ever be the same again...

    Commentaires

    "Elizabeth Jane Howard is one of those novelists who shows, through her work, what the novel is for... She helps us to do the necessary thing - open our eyes and our hearts" (Hilary Mantel)
    “Reassuring without becoming dim-witted or simplistic, largely because Howard is such an astute observer of human behaviour. She conveys volumes with tiny, brilliant touches ... I found myself at one in the morning, weeping over a death-bed scene, unable to put the book down. This is Howard’s true magic: her humanity transcends the individual. All Change really is the gold standard of comfort reads” (Lucy Atkins, Sunday Times - plus featured in their 'Must Reads' section)
    “Beautifully written and utterly engrossing” (Fanny Blake, Woman & Home)
    “Reading All Change is like turning the pages of a marvellous vintage photograph album ... a novel to gobble up like a soufflé and then marvel over at leisure” ( We Love This Book)
    “It was almost enough of a joy to have had four volumes of Elizabeth Jane Howard’s great saga about the Cazalet family ... so to have a fifth volume is a huge treat and you do rather hope she will go on forever ... It is in fact all wonderful. Please let there be a sixth book. Verdict 5/5” (Jennifer Selway, Daily Express)

    Howard finished strong

    Although this fifth novel in The Cazalet Chronicle was written nearly 20 years after the first four and near the end of the author's life, the mastery of tale and character is still there. At the end I cried because the characters are so real - so human, painstakingly drawn and psychologically credible - I came to love them as did the author.

    The beloved Cazalets

    This is my second time listening to the series. I can’t wait for enough time to pass so I can enjoy it all over again.

    This is the story of an English middle class family that covers the period from 1939 to the late 50s. The story and cast are brilliantly sustained and developed in Elizabeth Jane Howard’s telling, which is unfailingly insightful, full of pathos and humor. I live inside that world as I am reading.

    One reads different books for different things, making it impossible (at least for me) to say of any book: this is my favorite of all. But for a five volume family saga depicting the era between the wars in England, the Cazalet Chronicles are just perfect.

    My all time favorite series

    Where does All Change rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 5, along with the other 4 books in this series.

    Any additional comments?

    Finding that Elizabeth Jane Howard wrote this one last book in the Cazalet Chronicles, available on Audible just a few weeks before she died, was like a precious gift.

    I’ll miss the Cazalets

    I loved this entire series and will miss the family, even the unlovable Edward and Diana. It was a great weed with a little bit of food for everything I love in reading - history, solid characterization, a good story arc, details about the period decor, food, and fashion, wit and intelligence, multiple perspectives. Just a really good series. I enjoyed it even more than the Forsyte saga.

    I will miss the Cazalets

    This was a great book; however, there are too many loose ends! I love a happy ending with all the knots tied. I am going to miss this family and wish that there could be one more book that would provide answers. What happened to Edward - did he stay with Diana? What about Louise - did she find love? Did Hugh live? It will be one of those “Gone With the Wind” things - you’ll always wonder.

    A bit of a let down after the marvelous first ones

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes. The last quarter of the book is retelling all that we already know. It is too maudlin and not as interesting as the fist 2/3 of the novel. Remember, I am saying this as one who had reread all of the Cazuelet series. I am big EJH fan.

    Would you recommend All Change to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. It does little to add to the original series. It only makes one want MORE - at least in the beginning and we are not sated.`I can

    What does Penelope Wilton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I can only listen to books as I am visually impaired. She is a good reader. I rather missed the original reader, but this woman is more than adequate.I

    Could you see All Change being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I do not answer such questions. I read books. I have no interest in movies or TV shows.

    Any additional comments?

    There was far too much emphasis on Rachel. She, of all the characters, is not only boring but hard to take in. What intelligent woman would sacrifice her own life and pleasures for the likes of a family of disparate brothers? Give me a break. Rachel is most unlikeable.
