Great Nonsense!

I enjoy listening to PG Woodhouse at bed time, especially when Martin Jarvis is narrating.

Galahad at blandings!

Love the Period comedy and drama you get a real sense of the period of time and surroundings, so recommend to everyone who is interested in comedy with no lewd behaviour. Real good old fashioned fun! Can't wait to listen to the next one!

Not the best Wodehouse

I thought that this was a bit stfled, didn't flow as well and was less funny that is usual with P. G. However still pretty good

Peerless

Martin Jarvis has no rivals as a narrator of the comic genius Wodehouse. Every voice is perfect. Wodehouse creates a world that feels as comforting as a warm bath with every word, as Jeeves would say, the mot juste.

Martin Jarvis and Blandings

I have always thought that Martin Jarvis is one of the most talented narrators ever. Many years ago when my younger son was growing up, we listened to him reading the Just William stories and were enchanted by his ability to bring the characters to life by his clever voicings, and the way he gets inside his characters. And here, in the Blandings Castle series of books he does the same. It’s pure genius and will have you hooting with laughter yet in awe of his skills as an actor too. I challenge anyone during these very tough times to pick up a P G Wodehouse, and if an audio is your preference, go for Martin Jarvis’s narrations, they are first class. Thank you Martin, your love for these characters is shown in the convincing way you handle their individuality with humour and affection.

Very enjoyable

Martin Jarvis narrates this yarn perfectly. His inflection of each amusing moment brought tears of laughter at times, and I could see myself there as an invisible bystander.
With experienced actors this would be a superb film. For me at least.
