Making Masterpiece: 25 Years Behind The Scenes at Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery! On PBS by Rebecca Eaton
I actually finished this book a while ago, and I'm only now getting around to posting the review. I don't normally read non-fiction. For example, after this book I tried reading The Monuments Men by Robert M. Edsel, and I got about 60 to 100 pages in before I skipped to the epilogue and then ditched the book because I lost interest. I'll just watch the movie.
Eaton intentionally writes in a conversational tone; despite this conversational tone, there are some passages that become tedious. The chronology of events recounted within some passages can be confusing when she starts at one point in time and then backtracks in the following paragraphs to elaborate on how she ended up hiring a certain consultant, for example.
This is both a personal memoir and a history of the Masterpiece series. Fans of PBS and Masterpiece will enjoy this book.
