I'm a Wodehouse fan, but the Charlton Griffin narration is horrendous. Complete with tinkling 20's ragtime background music, this production is cheesy and grotesque.
After listening Frederick Davidson's elegant and understatedly humorous readings of other Wodehouse books, this came as a very bad surprise.
It was just too corny, campy, cheesy. A good narrator should disappear into the background and support the written word. Griffin's performance does the opposite. And--I wouldn't have thought this possible--ruins the stories.
Please have Frederick Davidson narrate this!
