Jarvis does a great line in Woostering, for me he the ideal narrator for the works of Wodehouse. It's part way between dramatisation and a verbatim read, the broad canvas of voices he uses adding to the enjoyment. I also like that is read quite fast, other samples I've listened to and slightly ponderous and I think it has to be fleet to ready hit the comedy. Horden and Briars, often on BBC radio is my other favourite.
I've always known about Wodehouse, Wooster and Jeeves. These books were always in my father's library. Listening to them now brought back that golden age of England's aristocracy and memories of my father's smile as he sat reading them. But the book in itself is so enjoyable, the delivery is excellent, bringing the characters to life, each in its own excellence. I was laughing out loud as I listened to them come to life.
The pranks are amazing, the style of writing excepcional and so specific to Wodehouse.
Any scene where Wooster is confronted by a new problem sends me laughing. Poor man!
I laughed out loud many times! My husband came to ask what was I laughing about. I'm even smiling now!
Thank you for this amazing book. And please convey my deepest gratitude and appreciation to the performer.
"FUNNY! HILARIOUS "LOL""
Yes, wish I could speak like that and maybe, listening to it more than once could rub of on me.
Mrs Pendlebury has given you a somewhat to hungry expression, a little like that of a dog looking at a distant bone. Very funny.
