Mrs. Bindle

Gelesen von Don W. Jenkins

(4,855 Sterne; 38 Bewertungen)

Herbert Jenkins' most popular fictional creation was Mr. Joseph Bindle, who first appeared in a humorous novel in 1916 and in a number of sequels. In the preface to the books, T. P. O'Connor said that "Bindle is the greatest Cockney that has come into being through the medium of literature since Dickens wrote Pickwick Papers". The stories are based on the comedic drama of life at work, at home and all the adventures that take place along the way. It becomes clear as the stories progress that Bindle would not be who he is without Mrs. Bindle, and this book seeks to tell the stories of the Bindles from the distaff point of view.

it would be worth listening to this book ONLY to listen to the reader perform Mrs. Bindle's favorite retortsm! I have listened to this book easily a dozen times. it just gets funnier. belly laugh funnier. the writing of the Bindle series is fabulous, but our dear reader who performed all three(!) makes it hilarious, though sentimental in spots . oneof my absolute favorites!

And now we hear from Mrs. Bindle

So Mr. Bindle has had his fun, now it is time for the Mrs. But, as you recall, she's a bit of a stuffed shirt. People are always trying to make trouble for Bindle by stirring up issues with his wife. Oh but what a finish! I hope you enjoy the stories as much as I have. :-)

Don W Jenkins , doing all the voices, poor old Bindle.
