Listener Opinions

    " Rumpole is just a great character in the legal profession. I really regret I couldn't locate Pommmeroy Wine Bar on my last trip to London.
    As the stories are not too long it makes for a very convenient read. "

    " Rumpole certainly has a way with words. He's an easy character to get attached to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pugsykat | 12/28/2009

    " Essential lifetime companion book to turn to when you need a comedic lift. I have been reading rumpole since I was 15, never tire of it and still sometimes find myself quoting him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 11/5/2009

    " I love Rumpole, I might go straight and femme for him. What is it about him, the sly wit,the Wordsworth quotes or his interest and observations of the quirks of mankind? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 8/25/2009

    " The basis for the old BBC/PBS series "Rumpole of the Bailey." Rumpole is an eccentric English barrister (lawyer, with the wife famously referred to as "She Who Must be Obeyed." Mildly amusing series of "cases", especially enjoyable for Anglophiles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 7/19/2009

    " His thoughts drift to Wordsworth...keep it in my desk. The stories are about 20-50 pages each "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 6/28/2009
