Full Moon

To be compelled to play host to his younger son, Freddie, was enough; add his sister Veronica and a chap called Tipton Plimsoll and you have a situation at which the doughtiest earl might quail...

    Story
    "Full Moon + Jeremy Sinden = A Full Hand"

    Like Frederick Davidson, Jeremy Sinden gets the inner meaning of Wodehouse, extracting every drop of irony, sarcasm, mock-melodrama or just plain humor from every single line. His vocal portrayals are pitch-perfect; one gets a visual image of every character. His timing and pacing are impeccable. His diction is downright Harovian. Or Etonian, take your pick.

    But then again, like any actor with a great script, Sinden has a lot to work with here. Full Moon is one of the highest spots in the Wodehouse bookshelf, a tumultuous romp through the spreading park lands and messuages of Blandings Castle, where:

    Veronica Wedge ("the dumbest blonde in Shropshire") and Tipton Plimson ("rather a self-centered young man") find love

    Colonel Egbert (complete with service revolver) and Lady Hermione Wedge (who looks like a cook) find a rich son-in-law

    Bill Lister ("Blister" to his pals) finds he isn't cut out for the life artistic but is cut out for life with Prudence ("that little squirt") Garland

    Lord Emsworth ("that woolen-headed peer") finds peace when everybody finally clears out of his house and leaves him with his prize porker, Empress of Blandings and his favorite reading, "On the Care of the Pig", by the great Augustus Whiffle

    And the Hon. Galahad Threepwood finds he can make it all come about with an adroit mixture of lies, half-truths, tall tales, brisk staff work...and putting the Empress in Veronica's bedroom.

    Don't worry, I haven't given anything away. In Wodehouse everyone--at least, all the deserving ones--get exactly what they want. The fun--and there is a great deal of fun here, served up with no unstinting hand--is seeing how they get it. Jeremy Sinden makes Wodehouse in your ear buds even better that Wodehouse off the printed page.

    "Easy and entertaining."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Full Moon to be better than the print version?

    No, P G Wodehouse's genius can be appreciated more fully in print. However this audio edition is a very easy and entertaining listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    If you read or listen to P G Wodehouse's stories of Blandings Castle all the characters connected to it become like old friends.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this audio book. It is typical Wodehouse, the story is light and humorous and Jeremy Sinden's narration is very good.

    "A triumph!"

    This book is truely P.G. Wodehouse at his best. An excellently observed study of characters and truly laugh out loud amusing. Jeremy Sinden's rich tones make it a joy to listen to. A must for any Wodehouse fan, and if you have not tried him before, I would recommend you try this - you are unlikely to regret it.
