    Story
    (99)

    Uncle Fred, or to give him his full title: Fredrick Altamont Cornwallis Twistleton, fifth Earl of Ickenham, is considered by some as a "splendid gentleman, a sportsman to his fingertips". Mr Twistleton, nephew to Earl, and otherwise known as "Pongo" to his friends, has a differing view. He simply describes his uncle as "being loopy to the tonsils".

    Patricia Marino says: "Perfection"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Uncle Fred in the Springtime the most enjoyable?

    Jonathan Cecil brings this book to life with his many voices and expressive reading. With its twists and turns, unlikely happenings that always seem to happen in PG Wodehouse's books and the wonderful narration this book had me laughing out loud much to the consternation of my family. When I had it playing out loud I would find my husband and daughter hovering around to hear what was going to happen next.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the humour, sub plots and ridiculous situations PG Wodehouse's characters find themselves in and eventually extricate themselves from. Lots of good clean fun.


    What about Jonathan Cecil’s performance did you like?

    Jonathan Cecil is absolutely brilliant at bringing all the characters to life. I don't know how he keeps track of all the different voices he does!


    If you could take any character from Uncle Fred in the Springtime out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would bring Uncle Fred out to dinner as he seems a charming, eccentric and fun individual.


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone wanting a bit of gentle fun and a good laugh out loud.
