Book Excerpt: 
. . .It's close quarters, Bunny; we shall have an expert eye upon us for some time to come. But I should rather enjoy that than otherwise, if only Teddy hadn't bolted in this rotten way."

Never had I known Raffles in so pessimistic a mood. I did not share his sombre view of either matter, though I confined my remarks to the one that seemed to weigh most heavily on his mind.

"A guinea to a gooseberry," I wagered, "that you find your man safe and sound at Lord's."

"I rang them up ten minutes ago," said Raffles. "They hadn't heard of him then; besides, here's his cricket-bag."

"He may have been at the club when I fetched it away—I never asked."

"I did, Bunny. I rang them up as well, just after you had left."

"Then what about his father's house?"

"That's our one chance," said Raffles. "They're not on the telephone, but now. . . Read More

Quite entertaining - but almost more of a tease, as there are references to other adventures that make me wish this was an omnibus! Now I'm going to have to ferret out the others! (Yes, cricket lovers would have added incentive to read this.)Raffles is smart as a whip and keeps his friend (and me...more

Meskipun aksi Raffless kurang menggigit. Ada satu pesan moral yang saya dapatkan dari novel ini yaitu pencuri dan rentenir sama-sama salah. Keduanya bukanlah pekerjaan yang pantas ditiru, apa pun alasannya. Setiap orang punya potensi melakukan apa saja, baik atau buruk. Tetapi, setiap diri punya...more

Great

All 4 books are really good, all of good quality. I enjoyed this book as much as the others, i am only sorry the adventure has come to an end.

Some characters work better in short stories. Raffles seems one of these. The novel is overly long, overly labrythine, and dear Raffles does not seem to behave entirely like himself, branching out from some gentlemanly burglary to deeper crimes, including extortion and kidnapping. Unless, like my...more

Fans of the amateur cracksman, A.J. Raffles, will likely want to read this final installment of his adventures. The change in format, though ... going from short stories to a novel ... works against it.

It is impossible not to sense the similarity in style between the Raffles stories and those of...more

I can see why the readers were disappointed when this novel first came out, but it's not bad really, just less of a typical Raffles theft story and somewhat drawn out. There's more place for character development though and I especially liked the rarity in a Victorian novel - a strong female char...more

Mr. Justice Raffles (Pencuri Legendaris dari Inggris) merupakan satu-satunya sajian novel yang mengisahkan A.J. Raffles. Sebelumnya, kisah A.J. Raffles hanya disajikan dalam bentuk cerpen saja. Ditulis oleh Ernest William Hornung, pertama kali diterbitkan pada tahun 1909 oleh penerbit Smith, Elde...more

Raffles is a good read

I enjoyed reading about the adventures of Raffles and
Meanders and how Raffles got out of his problem with his enemy.

An interesting read....the very British phrases and words made it a tougher read than expected. His style of writing is unusual compared to most of the authors I have read before this. I missed some of the action and some of the play-on-words while winding my way through this book. But, it was a...more

First i want to say that A.J. Raffles and Harry "Bunny" Manders have the most beautiful friendship in book that i ever read! Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are have a beautiful friendship too but A.J. Raffles and Bunny friendship is on different level in my opinion. In this book, the story start...more
