    "A Veritable Smorgasbord of Wodehouse"

    This volume has everything: Blandings Castle, Mr. Mulliner, Golf Stories, Freddie Widgeon of the Drones and three of the best Ukridge tales Wodehouse ever wrote. The only dimension of his imaginary universe that's missing here is Jeeves and Wooster. But what's here is all so good you don't notice the gap. Oh, and then there's Nigel Lambert's perfect performance of these nine stories. (So why haven't you clicked "purchase" yet?)

    Bought this one on cassette years ago and listened till the tapes wore out. It's good to have these screwball sagas again, in a far more portable format and at an unbelievable reasonable price.

    "The Pinnacle of Wit"
    Any additional comments?

    If you are a fan of Jeeves & Wooster stories, you'll definitely one to give this one a go. While it's a mixed bag of characters, every sentence of every story carries that patented P.G. Wodehouse wit, which is a pleasure to the ear and never fails to bring a chuckle. There are a fair number of golf-related stories in this volume too, if that tickles your fancy.
