Author: Slow Reader

Rating: 5

Review: I am not an avid reader and find it hard to get through a novel. The Rumpole Omnibus is a collection of short stories, each one being different to the previous one although the main characters are the same. Easy reading to pass an hour away.

Review: In the current world this book is like a trip back to past times, gentler times and more agreeable times. I read it accompanied with a large glass of Scotch, l suppose it shou!d have been plonk but l am not a wine drinker.
