What made the experience of listening to Cider with Rosie the most enjoyable?
Listening to Laurie Lee read his memoir, Cider With Rosie, is like slipping into the early part of the last century. His voice, and his wide ranging use of metaphor, simile, and extensive vocabulary take one deep into the heart of an isolated Cotswold village, and it's tight knit (incestuous) community. A different time, and looked at from today, one that was far from perfect. Still, it is evocative and a world that is lost; and therefore worth recalling.
What about Laurie Lee’s performance did you like?
Hearing LL read his own work is like listening to Eliot read his. A treat.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?

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.

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.
