      Http://allthebookblognamesaretaken.blfacebook/AllTheBookBlogNamesAitter/SarahsBookNookRating: 3 StarsI have a problem when I see a book about a topic I am extremely interested in - I pretty much buy the book without much thought, if it is what appears to be a decent price.

      This was a very short book, only 17 pages. I already knew a lot of the information in the book. I am fascinated with the Biltmore mansion. This book offered a brief history of the house.

      See this wonderful house yourselvesI have visited Biltmore and plan to go again soon. This is a place of dreams. I had visited The Breakers and The Marble House in Newport and loved them especially because they were built on the ocean front. So much to see and admire.

      Very informative. Short. I need to find a book on the Biltmore and George Vanderbilt that is longer. I feel that this read only captures the hot spots or the most popular points of the Biltmore Estate.

      Not much of a book. Misleading, ripoff. But interesting.

      Good general summaryA good general summary of Biltmore with great photos of the house and incredible grounds. The spring and fall colors are awe inspiring.
