5.0 out of 5 stars Charming, 9 Oct 2004
This review is from: The Green Lane to Nowhere: The Life of an English Village (Paperback)
I feel that I should call the author Mr Rogers, as he comes across as such a gent it would seem wrong to address him otherwise. This book is a charming look at the nature of the village, with the real beauty coming in Mr Rogers' taste for detail, the tiny things and observation. I had read one of his previous books and having read this one makes me want to seek out all of the rest. Harks back to a style somewhat lost in newspaper and literary writing, as does all of his writing. Concise, correct and utterly enthralling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crafty Welshman gives England the 'once-over' ! !, 6 Sep 2010
By 
Mr. R. French "Ron French" (Northumberland, UK.) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Byron Rogers does it again, in this very incisve and yet laidback view garnered over 25 years of life in this Northamptonshire village. The patchwork of short articles written at different times in his time in the village, makes for a nice leisurely look at life there and the changing face of society, even when rural.
Like his recent Biography 'ME'... I read it cover to cover,right off on receiving the book. The chapter headings are a delight.
Highly recommended to nostalgia buffs and all others, anyway.
Ron French, Wooler.
