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.
