Publisher's Summary

The Collected Blandings Short Stories.

Blandings Castle is the home of Lord Emsworth, who likes nothing better than to potter at home in his enormous castle garden. But his rural idyll is once again set to be disturbed in these nine hilarious fables. No peace is possible when his sister Constance is let loose, and she is constantly trying to reorganise the household and its inhabitants! Without great success....

The nieces are unhappy, McAllister leaves at a difficult time, and then The Empress of Blandings - Emsworth's prize pig - goes off her pig-food! Put all this against the continuing complicated love affairs of Freddie Threepwood, not to mention Lord Emsworth's own love interests, and the stage is once more set for classic Wodehouse hilarity!

    "Wonderfuld stories and narration BUT"

    Star rating refers to stories and narration, recording leaves much to be desired.

    Wodehouse never fails to amuse and Martin Jarvis never fails to get the characters` voices right BUT, Oh dear! Whoever arranged them for Audible download needs their head examined! No sooner has a story reached the end than the title of the next story is announced. No gap - almost no time for a breath! There should be a gap of at least two seconds - as it is there is no time to pause one`s Kindle in order to cease listening until the `next time`.Really, really aggravating.

    Story
    "Magical collection of the best of Lord Emsworth!"
    Where does Lord Emsworth Acts for the Best rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The combination of P.G. Wodehouse's sublime prose and the brilliant narration and characterisation by Martin Jarvis is simply too good to miss. Pure joy.


    What other book might you compare Lord Emsworth Acts for the Best to, and why?

    Martin Jarivs has narrated a number of P.G. Wodehouse books. Get them all.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    There are scenes of great humour and farce, fabulous plot twists, wonderful characters and, finally, a few scenes that are really touching.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    These stories put you into a World you don't want to leave.
