Reading PG Wodehouse is like eating candy--perhaps bonbons. And the narrator, Jonathan Cecil, does a brilliant job bringing Wodehouse's already so animated characters to full life. The only unfortunate part of the experience was the quality of the recording--often the sound is muddled--not so much that you can't hear, but if sound quality is important to you, you will be frustrated at times. Still, with that caveat, I can assure you that listening to this, Wodehouse and Cecil will bring you much joy--in the morning or any time of day you choose to listen.
Dumas and Lee make a fabulous pair. While this is an incredibly long book, the payoffs are worth it. Listening to this I felt that Dumas must have had as much fun writing this as I was having reading it. A complete joy.
An exquisite read, a beautiful story. One of the best books I've read in years. I was completely taken by this book. Both Verghese and the reader, Malhotra, do a wonderful job bringing this rich tale--and its complex, kind, funny, honest, troubled characters--to life in vivid detail.
