Heavy Weather | [P. G. Wodehouse]

Heavy Weather

Galahad Threepwood is causing scandal again...this time by deciding to NOT publish his potentially humiliating high-society memoirs. His decision causes rifts in the ranks at castle Blandings and all involved split into three camps: those who want the book suppressed, those who want it published, and those, who for some reason or another, that have been sent to steal it.

Publisher's Summary

P.G. Wodehouse is hailed by many as one of, if not THE best of the British comic authors. With a devoted following and a sharp farcical wit, Wodehouse continues his famous Blandings series with lashings of all of the fantastic quirks and quips his fans love so dearly.

Galahad Threepwood is causing scandal again...this time by deciding to NOT publish his potentially humiliating high-society memoirs. His decision causes rifts in the ranks at castle Blandings, and all involved split into three camps: those who want the book suppressed, those who want it published, and those who, for some reason or another, have been sent to steal it.

A very British restrained chaos inevitably ensues, and a listener can expect a whole host of the usual confusion, blackmail, robbery, and of course, the odd bit of pig-kidnap. The Empress had better watch her back....

Veteran Wodehouse reader Martin Jarvis never fails to please, with marvellous characterisation and an obvious respect and passion for the author and his works.

What the Critics Say

"This recording does more than justice to Wodehouse's genius. Martin Jarvis is unmatched in his ability to convey humour, emotion and drama in a full cast of characters...no afternoon will be so rewardingly spent as that shared with Wodehouse and Jarvis. Quite simply a pleasure and delight from start to finish." (audiobooksreview.co.uk)

    "Oh, those fateful memoirs"

    This is the next chapter, so to speak, in the saga of the Hon. Gallahad's memoirs and follows SUMMER LIGHTNING. It is a wonderful romp, in true Wodehouse fashion. One I know I will be listening to again and again.

    "Hilarious - and this is a really good reading, too"

    Martin Jarvis isn't always my favourite Wodehouse reader - I tend to prefer Jonathan Cecil - but I have to say that in this edition of Heavy Weather, Jarvis does a fantastic job.

    He does particularly good voices for Lady Constance and Lord Emsworth, which is important because their hilarity often lies more in the tone of voice than in the actual words.

    According to iTunes, I've listened to this (all 4+ hours of it) at least 6 times in the past 2 months. While I find this somewhat disconcerting (perhaps I should spend less time with my earphones), it's also a good indication of the fact that this audiobook is a must-have!

    "Heavy going"

    "Heavy Weather" by P.G. Wodehouse is Heavy Going, unlike other P.G. Wodehouse titles. Difficult to hold interest. 'Nuff said.
