Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee

About the book

This is a vivid memoir of childhood in a remote Cotswold village, a village before electricity or cars, a timeless place on the verge of change. Growing up amongst the fields and woods and characters of the place, Laurie Lee depicts a world that is both immediate and real and belonging to a now distant past.

Reviewed by Between the Leaves

Our group was split 50/50. Half thought it was a delightful, evocative picture of a time gone by, never to be again, warts and all! The other half thought it dragged, bordering on boring with nothing of substance. Personally I thought it was WONDERFUL.

  1. Review by Milford U3A
    Beautifully written, a master class in description. Not a page-turner. Life was not the rural idyll, all sides of life were shown. Mixed reactions from group members.
    Star rating: * for page-turner and **** for description
