    While Blandings Castle sleeps in the summer sun, the Hon. Galahad Threepwood, brother of the Earl of Emsworth, is busily engaged in writing his Reminiscences, and they look set to be as warm as the weather, if not warmer. For Galahad has led a thoroughly misspent life, and his acquaintances can all too easily recall their past follies in his company. Reputations are at stake and even the nobility and gentry are beginning to panic.

    Story

    I will agree with the other reviewers that the sound quality and narration for Summer Lightning are both sub-par. I often found myself missing phrases and more often found myself cringing at the narrator's high pitched voices, particular the women's voices in this story. I didn't find the sound, however, to be so bad as to ruin the book for me. Summer Lightning features a fantastic, looping plot and is just brimming with wit. Listening to this version of it takes a little more work that the normal audio book does (and should), and hopefully some version will be put out eventually to replace it. But Wodehouse fans shouldn't miss Summer Lightning, even if it takes suffering the less pleasant aspects of this recording to do so.
