Don't buy this if you're expecting it to be like the TV series.

While I can see how the TV series pull events out of this book, they're hardly alike.

If you're coming to the book with an open mind, I found it very enjoyable. A very unique style of writing, leaning more towards historical recounting of life in a hamlet town based on the author's own childhood. Glancing through I thought that the lack of definite story-line would make reading a bore, I was so wrong! One I started, I found myself slipping through chapter by chapter before I knew it. Unlike any book I have read before.

I have completed the first book in the trilogy, and though I agree with another reviewer that it has the same kind of feel as the "Little House on the Prairie" and "Anne of Green Gables" series' (all of which I love), I don't think I would put this in the same age range as either. The "Little House" series was something my friends and I read starting in elementary school, and my daughters did the same. The "Anne" books were more junior high to high school, and we have enjoyed them as adults as well. Though Thompson's books have the same rural, homey feel to them, I think the lack of an ever-present storyline would make them less appealing to the average youth today who is used to instant gratification and constant entertainment (I know I am generalizing). I'm sure there are some youth that would love them, but they are much more an insightful, descriptive look at country life with stories scattered here and there and I believe they will appeal more to adults. I find them fascinating and I think the people who used these books as a basis for the PBS series have done a brilliant job of creating a consistent storyline from the threads of narrative Thompson has woven together. If you have watched the series and loved it, don't approach the books as "the script" for what you have seen. View it more as background material and enjoy a deeper look into what made the people who they are. If you have read the books and are just considering seeing the series, don't expect to see what you have read. They are both wonderful examples of their own art form. Let each stand alone and appreciate them for what they are.

ETA: I have now completed the book and have seen all four seasons of the PBS series. I love them both, but would still caution people not to expect the movies to be an exact visual portrayal of the books. I admit that I am one who has been upset at times when I have seen a movie "based on" a classic book that has taken great liberties in their portrayal and completely changed characters who are critical to the storyline. However, I had not read these books before seeing the first three seasons of the PBS series, so the show was my introduction to the stories and characters. I still thoroughly enjoyed the books and thought it was fun to see what had inspired many of the stories in the TV series.

Very different from the BBC Series of the same name, but just as wonderful. A fabulous, interesting read. You may even read it again. I read and researched enough to know that it was not a written version of the Television Series, Lark Rise to Candleford, which I have watched over and over, and never tire of it... But you will not be disappointed and you will learn even more about the time and the history of country living and the changes from one century heading into the next. And towns turning into places almost unrecognizable to those who grew up there. Beautiful Trilogy.

Not a heartbreaking work of staggering genius, but a record of the writer's girlhood in rural Oxfordshire. The protagonist is named Laura, hence the flippant title for this review, though it has just as much in common with "All Creatures Great and Small" in that it mouns the loss of a slice of rural England and records what it was like as it does with the "Little House" series. In fact, the first book of the trilogy is more like cultural anthropology than fiction. I have read elsewhere that it it's extremely uncommon for an insider to write about farmworker life in England, so that make this unique -- she wasn't a farm laborer, and neither was her dad, but she grew up in a settlement (hamlet) where just about everyone was a farm laborer, making the same wages and living the same life. She becomes a postal clerk at age 14 (all the girls in Lark Rise go "into service" about that age -- their parents can't afford to feed them, and their schooling is over) and moves to a nearby market town, and in the meantime witnesses the lives of her neighbors. There's a wonderful BBC series based on this trilogy that brings these characters to life that you should seek out if you like this book. (It's on Hulu, Netflix and DVD.)

What a wonderful book (trilogy really). More a memory than a story (until the third part), this really evokes a time and place. Surely a golden- hazed memory but reality of life is there, even thought gentley presented. Just so happens this describes the life of my ancestors and ho lived just a few miles away, but anyone would enjoy these boos who love old ways and things of. The earth.

I love this trilogy and will be reading more of Flora Thompson. The story takes you back to another era when life may not have been easy but people were hard workers, loved and cared for their families, and were happy and contented with little. It is charming!

I was first introduced to this book by the TV series, from Britain, shown on PBS. I fell in love with the characters, the place, the history of the piece. Characterization is excellent; the people seem real and one is transported to the British countryside in the 1800s. A look at the postal system and how it evolved is just a side trip that I found interesting.
A wholesome read. Don't expect a plot or twists and turns, just the remembrances of time long ago and what we may miss from time to time in our modern world.

Keep in mind this Illustrated Lark Rise is ABRIDGED. Something I did not know until I received the book.
