Audible Editor Reviews

Rumpole, the beloved old British barrister, familiar to listeners from the British TV series, this time, in Rumpole and the Judge's Elbow, defends Charles Hearthstoke, the sleazy owner of a chain of massage parlors, accused of running "bawdy houses". John Mortimer's Rumpole, performed impeccably by the ever-droll Leo McKern, as usual outwits the court by convincing Guthrie Featherstone, an erstwhile client of Hearthstroke's for an elbow injury, to preside over the trial as Judge. With wit, mystery, and a clear sense of the absurd, Rumpole entertains listeners once again.

    "Excellent Rumpole, very enjoyable and entertaining"

    I love Rumpole read by Leo McKern and this is almost as good as any, and is very entertaining to listen to. Fun story, brilliantly written and narrated, good to listen to over and over.

    "An Audio Landmark"

    As an audio book lover I have found Rumpole read by 'the man himself' the late Leo McKern to be one of the landmarks in the audio landscape.
    Is there are more entertaining audio experience than those chronicling Rumploles great wins at the Old Bailey as he teases out some gentle mystery or his lows as his co-inhabitants in chambers, indifferent to Rumpole's talents, pursue their own intrigues, not mention his at times forlorn relationship with his wife 'she who must be obeyed'? A pure delight.
