    One thought on “The Second Rumpole Omnibus”

    1. I have probably read thousands upon thousands of books in my lifetime, but I have to say that my all time favorite literary character is Rumpole If I were stuck on a desert island and could only choose one book, a Rumpole omnibus would be it I ve probably already read this book a dozen times in the past twenty five years, but over the past few weeks I have picked up Rumpole again because he offers a particular kind of comfort during difficult times he reminds me how important, and sometimes how [...]

    2. An interesting book that should have been a short read but how can anything with over 600 pages be a short read It s a bunch of short stories with a quick beginning, middle and end They seem to be sequential with references to various events in previous stories However, each story stands on it s own with Rumpole coming out on top every time.

    3. A fantastic collection of stories about the irascible, indefatigable barrister Horace Rumpole as he defends his clients and tries his best to stay out of office politics.

    4. This omnibus edition contains Rumpole for the Defence , Rumpole and the Golden Thread and Rumpole s Last Case This is a marvellous collection of short stories and I have read and re read it many times since it was first published Rumpole is as ever on good form with various fallings out with She Who Must be Obeyed AKA Hilda Rumpole and plenty of disagreements with judges, especially with Judge Bullingham.Rumpole is always in search of the truth and sees possible defences where other people may o [...]

    5. Oh, how I love thee my sweet Rumpole Wittily and snappily written, John Mortimer ex barrister and ex colleague of Geoffry Robertson , tells the story of the successes and failures of an old London hack who, after work, subsides into Pommoroy s Wine Bar to partake of the esteemable Chateau Fleet Street , only to be harassed by She Who Must be Obeyed ie the wife when he arrives home Excellently played in the television series by Leo McKern pictured on the cover of this book , the characters are sh [...]

    6. Rumpole a classic and hilarious view of the English criminal legal system through the eyes of one of its practitioners, the fictional Rumpole, and as written by a barrister, John Mortimer I think even those unfamiliar with the system would find these entertaining.

    7. The classic old Bailey Hack created by the genius playwright John Mortimer One of the most beloved and funny charachters created in modern times Became a hit TV series now available on DVD as is the First Omnibus

    8. Whether you re a lawyer or not Rumpole is great Tremendously funny and irreverent too The barrister who never lost a case well, he might have done, but to know that for sure you d have to read his stories something I would recommend.

    9. This is the second Rumpole I have read and it was as good as the first I missed the TV shows from several years ago so his adventures are all new to me Good entertaining book, not heavy, beach read, air travel read, etc.

    10. These are all delightful short stories around 30 pages They are all quite clever and the writing is really good.

    11. Great lunch break reading, I loved the stories Funny, but I also like Rumpole s defense of the legal system.

    12. Three books 20 short stories 667 pages, all good fun My first encounter with Rumpole of the Bailey, but surely not my last

    13. These were great stories Haven t read them for years No longer have the books Maybe not literary masterpieces, but very funny and enjoyable.

    14. I LOVE Rumpole so I know this will be great Perfect reading for the deck with an icy beverage in hand EXCELLENT

    15. There is nothing comforting than to share in Rumpole s waxing on about the golden thread of justice down at the Old Bailey.
