This is a delightful collection of Rumpole stories. Tony Britton is a perfect narrator for this. He has a gently sardonic attitude and a rich voice. If you like Rumpole, this is a must-listen.
Si hoc legere scis nimium eruditionis habes.
This is one of the very best audiobooks I have ever bought. I loved Leo McKern as the irascible, quintessential Rumpole and thought no-one could ever come close. I was mistaken. This narrator was superb. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
The reader did just fine, and I found everything I wanted in this reading. There was nothing distracting, the audio was fine, and the writing was funny and entertaining. I'd highly recommend it to anybody who appreciates John Mortimer.
clever, witty, engrossing
Mortimer has a wit and charm that just can't be beat.
speaking with Hilda
Rumpole--a real character
I can recognize the talent in this writhing but am not a fan of the english writing but one who is would find it more enjoyable
