Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 2/10/2014

    " A wonderful little book, full of pathos yet somehow uplifting, a tribute to an ordinary man who lived a pleasant and fruitful life. Thoroughly recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara Shupe | 2/9/2014

    " Nothing amazing, but very enjoyable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 2/6/2014

    " This caught my eye on the library shelf this morning and I realised that although I knew the title, and indeed what it was about, I'd neither read it nor seen the famous 1939 film with Robert Donat in the title role. It's a lovely little tale of a long-gone era of England that I found almost unbearably moving. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaeli | 2/2/2014

    " So far a very good old fashioned 'teacher' story. I am reading it while my students labour away on their SOL tests. A touching read! I also just watched the 1939 movie. Wasn't as good as the book, of course. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip | 2/1/2014

    " Just re-read this for the I-don't-know-how-many-eth time . . . seldom has a good story been told so well, so simply, and so enjoyably, with such unforgettable results. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/27/2014

    " Recommended by my 5th grade teacher who I now correspond with through written letters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don Gubler | 1/20/2014

    " Do we value our teachers for what they have given us and who they are? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Wolf | 1/15/2014

    " A tear jerking novelette. Hilton says just enough perfectly, and the room that he spares tests the limits of the reader's capacity for human compassion and deference towards the devotees of children and their education. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristine | 1/10/2014

    " Very sweet, tiny little book. I think, in this case, my enjoyment of it was actually enhanced by the movie that I saw many years ago. (I think there is more than one version. The one I saw had Peter O'Toole and Petula Clark.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Hankes | 11/23/2013

    " Really enjoyed the supreme storytelling of this book. So nicely written. Character-driven and easily identifiable. Beautiful, sweet story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ivan | 10/11/2013

    " Entertaining, but not at all brilliant. A very simply story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Temoca | 8/22/2013

    " A classic. The life of a professor from an all boys school in England. Not always interesting, but there are humorous parts. It is from the professor's point of view and it is interesting to hear how he endured for so long and then kept in touch with the school. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pandora | 1/21/2013

    " This was one of my books I read for English at school.....way back when! So I guess it's time for another read!!! I have always thought of it fondly though, and all my other books that were essential reading for English at school! Which seems like another lifetime ago!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Bullock | 11/28/2012

    " An engaging, endearing and sentimental story. Very readable and enthralling for quite a short novel. You immediately feel a part of his life and you don't want to stop reading. Very enjoyable but also quite emotional. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary-Jane | 11/28/2012

    " Not especially recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zeta T. | 9/20/2012

    " Read this aloud with the sweetheart on a week away near the beach... so cozy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Esme | 4/19/2012

    " Quite enjoyable. Pleasantly nostalgic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kiara W | 1/5/2012

    " Mr.Chips was an old professor. He was very inteligent and resevered man. Even though he was old his doctor said he was healthier than he was. All Mr.Chips students loved him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candice | 12/24/2011

    " The movie is actually better than the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/22/2011

    " I absolutely LOVED this story. You feel as though you are taking tea in a quiet country inn somewhere in England. It is endearing and uplifting - definitely worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evan | 7/18/2011

    " A flawless, sad little novella. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maura | 5/19/2011

    " A sweet quick story about an "average" person's life. Almost more a series of vignettes than a full-fledged story, but very well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 4/25/2011

    " Really enjoyed the supreme storytelling of this book. So nicely written. Character-driven and easily identifiable. Beautiful, sweet story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sasha | 4/17/2011

    " It was sappy in a disconnected kind of way. That's possible, right? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mayde | 2/18/2011

    " Hmmm.I found the writing to be rather simplistic and disjointed. Nothing offensive, just not a favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steph | 1/23/2011

    " Was prompted to reread after catching the last half of the film on TV. Found book to be simple but eloquent. Guess that's why it's still around. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miss Grady | 12/27/2010

    " Nice quick read...my students would have issues because of the language. Sweet book about a teacher and how they influence and change lives!!! Inspiring! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kiara | 10/5/2010

    " Mr.Chips was an old professor. He was very inteligent and resevered man. Even though he was old his doctor said he was healthier than he was. All Mr.Chips students loved him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 9/14/2010

    " This is a sweet little novel full of 1930s flavor and a bit of British humor. It's a must-read if you like classics from that era, and worth trying out even if you don't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 7/30/2010

    " A great, feel-good book. It was shorter than I had expected (since they made a full length movie out of it), but perhaps part of the beauty of it is that so much could be expressed in so few words. Definitely a book to add to my permanent collection. "
