I was disappointed with the book content. I greatly enjoy reading Borrow's Wild Wales and, as I was doing research on the Romany way of life, I thought it would be interesting to read a contemporary account from Borrow in The Romany Rye. However much of the content is pedantic, immaterial to Romany life and frankly rather boring. It's informative when giving accounts of customs and habits in Victorian times, but wasn't what I expected.

A book I first read many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed then, now, reading it again it has given me even greater pleasure. It is a pity that George Borrow is not much better known and appreciated.
