    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.

    Oddsfish says: "Great Book, Poor Sound"
    "Great story marred by wretched narration"
    Overall

    An otherwise delightful tale is marred by the painfully twee voices, particularly Lord Emsworth's, which sounds like that of an elderly female invalid. The straight narration, as opposed to the dialogue, had an up tempo wry quality which I found enjoyable, but the overdone hammy voices ruined it for me. I listened to the end, because it's Wodehouse, after all, but I rejoiced when the end came.
