I love Rumpole

If you could sum up The Trials of Rumpole in three words, what would they be?

I'm completely biased.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It kept me settled way back in my easy chair. Like listening to an old friend.

What about Bill Wallis’s performance did you like?

I had no sense he was seeking my approval. In this respect, how like the great barrister himself. A lot of mumbling under his breath as to the Old Bull.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love it when Rumpole allows himself to feel real affection for,

Any additional comments?

I have heard a number of narrators do Rumpole and somehow I've been able to get very comfortable with all of them.

A very enjoyable read

Where does The Trials of Rumpole rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It has become a familiar favourite, I have listened to this book several times.

What other book might you compare The Trials of Rumpole to, and why?

It is a good book, most of the other Rumpole books are as good.

Have you listened to any of Bill Wallis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

He is an excellent narrator and this book is as good as his other readings.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have done if I'd had time, but it splits easily into parts so I was able to listen in chunks.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book very much.

A perfect voice for Rumpole

I love this title. The stories are witty and clever and Bill Wallis provides a perfect voice for Rumpole.
