Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[P. G. Wodehouse] is known for numerous popular stories and novels about his whimsical upper-class characters: the Honorable Bertie Wooster, Psmith, Mr. Mulliner; Jeeves, the valet, and assorted peers. Much of the humor stems from the idle gentleman. The books contain fantasy, affectionate satire, and the absurd comic situations of farce. The style is very elaborate, full of verbal ingenuity, mock pomposity, and unexpected slang.” The Reader’s Encyclopedia
“Wodehouse is the funniest writer—that is, the most resourceful and unflagging deliverer of fun—that the human race, a glum crowd, has yet produced.” The New Yorker, praise for the author
“He who has not met Wodehouse has not lived a full life.”  San Francisco Chronicle

Master of Humor

This book had me chuckling out loud to myself. P. G. Wodehouse is undeniably the master of hijinks and shenanigans. His characters always find themselves in absurd situations, and the way they handle them is hilarious. Yes, this is very British and dated, but that doesn't make it any less funny. This was one of the better narrations I've heard of a Wodehouse book as well. There are some floating around out there that have terrible audio quality or just plain bad narration, but Jonathan Cecil did an admirable job. If you like social satires, comedy of errors type stories, or just good entertainment, get this audiobook.

Author Bio: P. G. Wodehouse

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
