Publisher's Summary

The usual suspects, including Lord Emsworth and his prize pig, the Empress, line up at Blandings Castle for a Wodehousian caper that sees members of the upper-classes getting hot and bothered over a nude painting they all want to get their hands on. This is wit at its very finest, read by one of our superlative actors, who reads Wodehouse with the requisite style and panache.

    Story
    "Fun listening for fans"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I wouldn't change anything, as Wodehouse remixes all his standard characters and plot devices for another humorous romp.


    Would you be willing to try another book from P. G. Wodehouse? Why or why not?

    I am looking forward to other Wodehouse books read by Martin Jarvis.


    What does Martin Jarvis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings a cadence to the dialogue and a brisk breezy pace which set a proper tone.

    "Very Good"

    This is another good Wodehouse story. Some readers might get tired of Wodehouse's use of the same plot devices over an over, and this would be a fair criticism. There is very often a case of mistaken identity and someone trying to steal something in order to avoid some embarrassment. And yet the characters are always good, there is always a decent amount of Wodehouse's dry wit, and a good human touch. Martin Jarvis is a great reader who adds a special dramatic touch to the characters and events. So all in all, great entertainment value. And this is, after all, what Wodehouse is generally about.
