    "Timeless Classic!"
    What did you like most about A Few Quick Ones?

    Again, Woodhouse at his best. This collection of short stories has it all and encompasses all the Characters we love so much. The stories are concise and each as absurd as the next. Had me chuckling and in places laughing out loud uproariously - bit embarrassing in public!


    What other book might you compare A Few Quick Ones to, and why?

    ANY other Woodhouse book, I am personally a Jeeves and Wooster chap, and can't get enough.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Cecil’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Cecil is a GENIUS! I have heard many readings of Woodhouse including the fantastic Ian Carmichael - but he should stick to Peter Whimsy. Cecil brings Woodhouse to life, and the characters jump off the page - or in this case out of the speakers, into your living room.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't help it! Once you start, you can't stop. I also listen to all his books over and over, picking up small bits I missed or just enjoying the timeless hilarity.


    Any additional comments?

    A MUST LISTEN TO...
