A quintessential British butler reflects on his life in service.

I'd seen the beautiful movie based on this title before, but decided to delve into the book after it was mentioned as a character's favorite in Syed Masood's The Bad Muslim discount. This book is considered a modern classic by many for a reason. The writing style is so simple yet effective. The main character is so emotionally stunted yet so relatable. He devotes his life to a purpose only to wonder what it all was for, and to yearn for a relationship that never quite was. This is an extraordinary book, with spot on narration on the audio version.
