Listener Opinions

    " Whether he's on the telly or in a book, I just love Horace Rumpole. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank | 9/25/2010

    " A nice read, although it's impossible to envision Rumpole any differently than as portrayed in the Mystery! series.

    Short stories joined together by a loose thread of details. Very nicely done.

    I regret not picking up a few other volumes at the thrift store. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cait | 9/5/2010

    " I read these, only to grasp my utter lack of understanding of the British legal system. Still: these are basically charming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 4/20/2010

    " Lots of fun if you like, say, Wodehouse-style British humor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Art | 3/14/2010

    " One of the truly great characters in mystery fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 12/18/2009

    " The writing is light and fun. Rumpole is quite loveable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug | 5/19/2009

    " Not much point to this, really -- just reworkings of the TV episodes, which are much more entertaining by themselves. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn | 5/17/2009

    " Funny. Charming. And the legal stuff is insightful and done with an extremely light touch. This is the first of 15 story collections or full-length novels. I will be reading more of these ... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 2/18/2009

    " Very fun book. I look forward to picking up another Rumpole when I need something light with sarcasm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 1/20/2009

    " Great English detective mystery. Good read with some twists "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Menner | 8/7/2008

    " Absolutely delightful. Wonderful humor. I love how Rumpole refers to his wife as "She Who Must Be Obeyed". It's witty, well written, and subtle. Highly recommended. "

    " I LOVE Rumpole! No better reading for the summertime. "
