Book Review: Mr Justice Raffles

Mr Justice Raffles by E.W. Hornung
Sadly this ‘Raffles’ novella is meritless material. A young man has distress and fear due to getting into debt with an ill-natured moneylender and his rat trap mouth. Raffles and Bunny who rarely opt for convention pour bile on the moneylender who they regard as inherently repellent. This leaves one mystified and confused as to how this story is so bad. Raffles and Bunny do very poor behaviour and worse without betraying any visible emotion. This novella is a dry muchy wad that is a monotonous trudge to get through. It isn’t even fleetingly interesting and has numbing prose.
