"Wodehouse at his best."
Hilarious vintage Wodehouse, superbly rendered by James Saxon. The stories had me chortling, and Saxon's readings just hit the spot. Superb stuff.
I misrakenly thought all the stories would be based at Blandings with the usual cast of wonderful characters. However many of the tales related to adventures in the US with less interesting individuals. I would not have chosen this one had I realised. Good narrator.
"More than just Blandings"
The book starts with Blandings, Lord Emsworth, the Empress and a scary battalion of powerful women. Classic Wodehouse set amongst the aristocracy. The wit is sharper then Lady Constance's voice. The second part of the book contains Mr Mulliner stories, which are less well known and set in Hollywood, where Wodehouse worked writing scripts. They are not what you would expect if your only experience of Wodehouse are the TV series. Thoroughly recommend, a book to listen to again and again.
