Just William | [Richmal Crompton]

Just William

Now as famous on radio and audio as they are in print, the adventures of that irrepressible and ageless schoolboy William Brown have been delighting both young and old for decades. Perpetually scruffy, mud-stained, and mischievous, he is a lovable scamp whose pranks usually end in disaster, for his harassed elders at least. With friends Ginger, Douglas, and Henry (The Outlaws), and the angelic, lisping, thorn-in-his-side Violet Elizabeth Bott, William has rightly joined the literary, and radio, immortals.

      "Fun!"

      What a fun book. My 7 year old son loved it as well (I just hope he doesn't get any ideas...)

      "Delightful!"

      William, the rascally English boy, is at it again. Richmal Crompton has written some delightful stories, but Martin Jarvis, an excellent narrator, has turned them into classics with his wonderful performance. These stories are not written for young children. My high school children and I delight in listening to the William stories.

      "Wonderful story, beautifully read."
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      Absolutely. The whole family listened to Just William stories on a very lengthy car trip (15 hours drive). The time passed quickly, with my 7 year old boys, my mother-in-law, myself and my husband entranced by the stories. We roared with laughter at Williams antics and at times the car literally shook with laughter.

      The stories are so simple and yet extremely clever and the reading is wonderful. My husband still repeats some of the phrases sometimes: "I'm just bein' plite" says my husband in his best William voice when he does something especially annoying...


      What was one of the most memorable moments of Just William?

      Every story was just so wonderful it's hard to pick a favourite moment. I'd say my best memory was looking around at the faces of my family, the seven year old boys and their grandmother sitting togethor, eyes bright with joy, at one, roaring with laughter.


      Which scene was your favorite?

      All!


      Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

      Laugh, and laugh and laugh some more. At one point, we were rolling around the floor (in the Shakespeare story) weak with laughter. The boys didn't get all of it, but they did get the 'ham and eggs and bacon' jokes.


      Any additional comments?

      You will love, love, love these stories. I have already told my mother off for not giving them to me as a child. But I can still enjoy them now!!

      "Be Prepared to Laugh - Lots!"
      Would you listen to Just William again? Why?

      We enjoyed this on holiday, as a family,.
      We had to pause the story a time or two as the adults were in fits of laughter and the story could no longer be heard. ☺
      I think this would be our favourite Just William audio, thanks mostly to the excellent narration by Martin Jarvis - that man is an artist!

      "Not for us"

      We thought this would be an intereseting series The stories have a little rascals in England twist to them but the story lines did not captivate my 7yr old son's attention and he was lost in all of the english phrases.
