Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheri | 2/16/2014

    " Certainly not a Rumpole - very different. She wanted to "do some good in the world", but is was a funny way of going about it! A light, easy-read, but not much depth and rather improbable in many places. I just got cross with her. And as for her father the Bishop - well, I've worked in the Church of England, and far-fetched just doesn't go nearly far enough! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Domingo | 2/2/2014

    " one of the best books for light reading. LOVE IT! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 1/25/2014

    " A quite witty look at social liberals and their misguided goals. Also a sting to the Church of England. Very enjoyable with very little foul language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Conrad Haas | 1/19/2014

    " Mortimer offers offers separate views of an interaction between two people, one aimed at helping others and another coming out of prison in an current English setting. So far, their different perceptions are quite revealing and interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lena | 1/18/2014

    " I loved Mortimer's earlier works, and Rumpole and his Chateau Thames Embankment are part of my everyday life. However, this novel was rather disappointing, and had it been by anyone else I would not have read past page 10. It was simply boring and rather dated. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arianne | 1/15/2014

    " Starts well, but I did look at the end of the book. Not a good sign. I am struggling a bit but will probably finish it. Maybe the middle bit will get better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 1/9/2014

    " An enjoyable bit of frivolous spoofing, when Lucy Purefoy (who wants to do good in the world) and Terry Somebody (a career thief) fall in love. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaethe | 12/17/2013

    " Long Way Down or How to Be Good are better on do-gooding "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maggi | 12/3/2013

    " I suppose I like my Mortimer either as Mortimer, or as Rumpole. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue Stead | 12/3/2013

    " A short, amusing novel which was fun to read. Totally unrealistic but fairly entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noria | 11/29/2013

    " A very interesting, at times funny and at a few moments a bit predictable story but very pleasantly read by Beth Goddard and Marc Warren. They get the characters they're reading quite well and even manage to make the characters they're sharing sound quite similar. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chuck Bradley | 7/30/2013

    " Brit humour at its best. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kenneth | 5/27/2013

    " An entertaining, plot driven book. This disposable thoughtless look at quirky people, their interesting relationships, and astounding 'britishness' was the right combination of movement and wit to make it worth an airplane read. Don't expect much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 4/9/2013

    " Quirky story. Good, light reading book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 tana | 1/25/2013

    " quite silly "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dreamer | 12/8/2012

    " Didn't finish this, lost interest.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roy | 10/24/2012

    " It was a relatively mindless read that served me reasonably well on a transcontinental flight. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 10/23/2012

    " Nice quick, easy, breezy read. Not great literature, but good for the weekend. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana | 5/29/2012

    " I really looked like a Brit on holiday while reading this book by the pool! It was predictable but OK. The UK writing style and language took some getting used to, but it wasn't terrible, just not my type of book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 5/12/2012

    " Quite amusing, quite British, quite forgettable. Do-gooder gone wrong, lots of bumbling and fumbling and not very bright characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charity | 1/30/2012

    " Light fare. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christine | 8/13/2011

    " Quite honestly, I could not finish the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don | 8/12/2011

    " This is extremely light, even for John Mortimer, whose fiction is always light. A fairly enjoyable and quick read, but I'm sure I won't remember a thing about this novel a month from now. "
