Big Money | [P. G. Wodehouse]

Big Money

Most of the big money belongs to Torquil Paterson Frisby, the dyspeptic American millionaire--but that doesn't stop him wanting more out of it. His niece, the beautiful Ann Moon, is engaged to "Biscuit", Lord Biskerton, who doesn't have very much of the stuff and so he has to escape to Valley Fields to hide from his creditors. Meanwhile, his old school friend Berry Conway, who is working for Frisby, himself falls for Ann--just as Biscuit falls for her friend Kitchie Valentine. Life in the world of Wodehouse can sometimes become a little complicated.

    Story
    "Another Dry Martini. Another Perfect Souffle."

    Someone, one of those big-brained chaps no doubt, like Darwin or Shakespeare or Thomas Hardy, once said that trying to describe the pleasure of reading Wodehouse was like trying to describe the perfect dry martini. Similarly, someone else equally brain-burdened likened any attempt at criticizing a Wodehouse story to taking a spade to a souffle.

    Just so. Therefore I'll limit myself to saying this story is standard Wodehouse fare, which means it's a cut above most other humor you're likely to find out there. Another tour of life among the inane and the earnest, the lovelorn and the broke. Of course, it all comes out right in the end. The fun is seeing how that happens. And the fun is also hearing Jonathan Cecil narrate how it happens. Like Frederick Davidson, Cecil gets Wodehouse and never overdoes it, giving the words and the humor the right, light touch.

    Story
    "Wonderful, unless laughing aloud is unacceptable"
    What made the experience of listening to Big Money the most enjoyable?

    British storytelling at its best, with a big dose of humor. A must read for anyone who believes, or once did believe, that dubious schemes to get rich without much effort will succeed. I plan to listen to it again soon.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Cecil’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Superb, one of the finest I have heard.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Where is that mine?
