    1 thought on “The Third Round

    1. In The Third Round, Sapper s third book about Bulldog Drummond, there is an interesting shift in direction In the first two books, Drummond is battling against Bolshevists and Jews In this outing, the villains are capitalists, and not even foreign capitalists who are out to undermine Britain either.The capitalists in question are prominent members of the diamond industry who are appalled when the absent minded Professor Goodman devises a means of manufacturing diamonds in his laboratory Faced wi [...]

    2. I LOVE the other Bulldog books The first two, however, have of Bulldog himself This one was too much from the perspective of the bad guy Bulldog is wonderful because of the dialogue ing specifically from Bulldog himself And because of the ladies Irma or whatever her name is in each book is fantastic Especially interacting with Bulldog, and I always like a little romance So, darn it, there needs to be of Mrs Bulldog I needed of both ladies and the Bulldogesque dialogue to have loved this one t [...]

    3. I m happy I discovered these entertaining stories about Bulldog Drummond, a former British soldier who retires and goes rogue, solving crimes that baffle the authorities He is clever, witty, compassionate and ruthless with no tolerance for the bad guys This story in the collection is about a chemist who discovers how to create flawless diamonds, but the diamond syndicate wants to put him out of business As I ve said before, it s James Bond without the sex.

    4. In which an elderly scientist develops a method for creating priceless diamonds for next to nothing unscrupulous businessmen, failing to buy him off, employ villainous Carl Peterson to silence him and our hero, Bulldog Drummond, pits his wits and his enormous strength against his arch enemy Loads of fun and entertainment via the magical voice of Roy McMillan.I ve listened to this a number of times and still enjoy the humour of Sapper s writing.

    5. This is a lovely old fashioned English crime story written in the 1920 s There s plenty of well paced action, twists and turns, humour and wit I have not read the previous two books in the series, but this didn t interfere with my enjoyment of the story and understanding of the characters A great audiobook for a long journey.

    6. In this 1924 adventure, Bulldog Drummond is again pitted against master criminal Carl Peterson in a plot involving a new method of artificially creating flawless diamonds for around 5 each Great undemanding fun.

    7. So, for some reason, I decided to take up Bulldog Drummond again, and I have to say, it s rapidly become tedious The first was silly and improbable The second was good enough that it tempted me to try the third This one was tedious and I kept wishing it were over It wasn t horrible, just not very good Were I able to give s and s, this would most definitely be , or likely, Anyway, Bulldog Drummond finds himself locking horns with the world s master criminal, Carl Peterson, aka Comte du Guy, aka [...]

    8. Another fun story featuring the infamous hero Hugh Drummond Sapper writes fast and accessibly so one needn t be too frightened to read the book, besides the occasional suspension of belief regarding an overly complicated plot This one sees Drummond s take on cracking down on a diamond pyramid scheme, seen in other such thrillers like Diamonds Are Forever He was an influence after all There are sometimes too many characters but at least the dialogue is witty , in fact, I m sure that s the only re [...]

    9. A bit of a change from the two earlier books, Peterson s plans are all spelled out and the book spends at least as much time with him as with Drummond, Drummond himself has also changed a bit he talks less Wodehouse ian rot and rather than blundering into situations with fists flying he seems to be using at least a little brain power All this said though it s still a rattling good old fashioned adventure.

    10. Another meaningless romp through the playground of good guy vs criminal mastermind If you are looking for light fun reading, here it is If you are looking for deep insightful drama, you might be better off looking somewhere else This reads like a 007 movie than a 007 book.

    11. What an author The writing is gripping It maintains fascinating forward momentum to the very end Great use of descriptive verbiage Great sense of humor Her, very well written.

    12. Bulldog Drummond is back No longer actively seeking adventure, he is nonetheless pulled into a mystery by one of his friends The trail, of course, leads to his old nemesis Carl Peterson This volume is less action oriented than the first two and, in my opinion, is a better story for it.

    13. Felt there was a little too much concentration on Carl Peterson rather than on Bulldog Drummond and that s the only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 For me it came to life completely every time Bulldog was in the scene Still loving the books
