"The funniest writer ever to put words to paper" - Hugh Laurie
P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) was a British novelist and humorist who achieved great commercial success with his Jeeves and Wooster and Blandings series.
It's getting harder and harder to find mediocre recordings of Wodehouse's "Jeeves" novels, and this new one merely adds to what is already an embarrassment of riches. First published in 1923, this book contains ten loosely connected stories that retain their vigor and hilarity nearly 80 years later. Among the wonderful characters introduced are Bertie's perpetually love-struck pal, Bingo Little, and the latter's eventual bride, Rosie M. Banks, author of such sentimental slops as A Red, Red Summer Rose. Best of all, however, are "The Great Sermon Handicap" and "The Purity of the Turf"Äunforgettable tales about unlikely gambling competitions, in which JeevesÄas alwaysÄcomes out on top. Frederick Davidson's reading of Wodehouse is getting even betterÄif that's possibleÄmaking any library's purchase of this audiobook as near a "cert" as a flutter on the Rev. Heppenstall's sermon on "Brotherly Love."ÄKent Rasmussen, Thousand Oaks, CA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
* No one can do the milky, imperious voice of a marriage-brokering aunt like Martin Jarvis. What a good egg he is! The Observer * Wodehouse brightens up the dullest day and lightens the heaviest heart. So give yourself a tonic by listening to this comedy classic. audiobooksreview.co.uk * Martin Jarvis brings the madcap world of Bertie Wooster and his brilliant valet Jeeves to life with canny comedic timing.
