Publisher's Summary

Cider with Rosie is a wonderfully 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 belongs to a now-distant past.

Wonderful Narration

I read this book as a teenager and couldn't decide whether to buy it anew on my Kindle or go for the audio version. In the end I felt to have Laurie Lee read it to me would be a bit special...and it was! I have listened to the opening section of the book may times as it is one of my favourite passages from literature. A wonderful, evocative book brought to life by its author.

A very special experience

I read this many years ago and remember loving it, conjuring up a whole vivid lost world in wonderfully gentle prose. I wanted to re-read it, but to listen to it instead read by the author was pure magic. A classic, and my best audio book to date.
