What a great book. It gave me hope that there might be a way out of the muck that most of corporate America is currently in. This lead me to loads of interesting work in related fields, and I'll always be grateful for having listened to it.
Mostly the narration - it was terrible.
Not unless it was read by Geoffrey Howard (the previous narrator) or someone equally good.
While he has a fitting British accent, he has no ability to differentiate between characters, and becomes very monotones. He does not bring the story to life.
The this story is as well crafted, and almost as much fun as most of the other 6 Feathering novels I have read, but I don’t think I’ll get any more unless the narration goes back to someone with more skill at it.
I would definitely get another PG Wodehouse, but never another Nicolas Coster.
As with most Wodehouse, the descriptions the main character uses to paint a picture of people and situation are hysterically funny. But you'd never know it from the performance here.
No one- he's terrible.
Jonathan Cecil is the best narrator for Wodehouse books.
Though the actors are decent, this radio version is badly edited and seems very truncated. Although it was not expensive it was still not worth the price.
If these stories are ever recorded in a more complete and professional manner they might be interesting.
Having heard many PG Wodehouse recordings, I was disappointed with this narration. There are other, much better versions of this same story available.
Yes because I've read a number of other Feehan works which were quite good.
Maybe, but not for a book of this type.
I think the combination of the thin delivery, and shallower then usual characters combined to make it hard to even get through this one, let alone enjoy it.
