Publisher's Summary

ASBOs may be the pride and joy of New Labour, but they don't cut much ice with Horace Rumpole - he takes the old-fashioned view that if anyone is going to be threatened with a restriction of their liberty then some form of legal proceeding ought to be gone through first. When one of the Timson children is given an ASBO for playing football in the street, Rumpole soon realizes something fishy is going on.

Rumpole at His Finest

What made the experience of listening to The Anti-Social Behaviour of Horace Rumpole the most enjoyable?

I have been a longtime Rumpole fan. Loved the idea of "she who must be obeyed" becoming a barrister.

What other book might you compare The Anti-Social Behaviour of Horace Rumpole to and why?

All the other Rumpoles are just as entertaining. I recommend them all<br/>

Which character – as performed by Bill Wallis – was your favorite?

I do love Hilda. She is a powerful force.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nothing extreme. Rumpole is always good for a chuckle.

Like visiting an old friend

Rumpole is my most favorite non-conformist. He never takes himself or his colleagues too seriously. Rumpole's sense of humor is high-browed yet universal so anytime I get a chance to hear one of his cases, I take it.

Sheer Genius

Bill Wallis really makes Rumpole come to life and the character vocalisations are fantastic.



As usual this is Rumpole at his best, I can't recommend this book enough, it is sublime!
