Summary

Distraught when an author withdraws his manuscript from publication, the publisher, Lord Tilbury, sets about retrieving his fortunes, never guessing that his final obstacle would be in the rotund form of a prize pig.

Absolute pleasure

Jeremy Sinden, the narrator, is an absolute pleasure to listen to. I have liked his rendition of Heavy Weather so much that I went on to get his other readings of PG Wodehouse's novels. Would highly recommend!

Wonderful

Best of Wodehouse. Hilarious, clever and narration is so so good.
Been listening to this to get off to sleep, instead I’ve kept the whole house awake by laughing out loud. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

A sunshine filled joy!

The sun always shines at Blandings Castle, true there are storms and 'Heavy Weather' but eventually the sun will come out again and shine upon the inmates of the castle. If you are already a fan of Wodehouse, then you will love it . If you are new to the delights of Blandings, I would suggest starting at the beginning with 'Something Fresh'. Although to be fair it doesn't really matter too much. A complete joy from beginning to end.

With a contented sigh

Jeremy Sinden has captured P.J. Wodehouse so very well in Heavy Weather.

The plots and subplots are delightfully entwined and keep Galahad on his toes.
While would be high profile personages are plotting to steal Galahad's ms, others see a fortune in publishing same. Meanwhile the Earl is determined to prevent his neighbour stealing his award winning pig. And then some.
A most enjoyable listen. I would like to hear Sinden read more of Wodehouse.
