What the Critics Say

"A brilliantly funny writer, perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has yet produced." (The Times [London])
"In this superb volume of short stories featuring some of his favorite characters, Nigel Lambert sounds as if Wodehouse himself directed him. His timing is flawless, his characterizations masterful....This is a great comic interpreting the work of a great humorist." (AudioFile)

    "A Treat"

    This is a truly wonderful Audiobook
    It is warm, funny, brilliantly observed, and superbly narrated by Nigel Lambert who misses neither shade nor rib tickling nuance.
    Not to be missed.

    "Wodehouse brought superbly to life"
    What did you like most about Lord Emsworth and Others?

    Echoing the other reviews - have always loved reading Wodehouse, but Nigel Lambert is absolutely brilliant ! Its rare to have a reader do male and female voices, young and old equally well but he is just perfect.

    "Beautifully read!"
    Would you listen to Lord Emsworth and Others again? Why?

    Yes. I love Wodehouse.


    What does Nigel Lambert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His characterizations are superb, especially the women.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could have done but it's a series of discrete short stories, so I savoured each separately.

    "Unmissable"

    I've always been a big fan of the dramatised PG Wodehouse audiobooks, but Nigel Lambert does an equally brilliant job portraying dozens of different characters, from doddery Lord Emsworth to forceful Lady Constance, taking in numerous nieces and ne-er do wells along the way with apparent effortlessness. The stories are a summery delight. Fans of Wodehouse should definitely not miss this.

    "You must download this"

    I have long loved PG Wodehouse - and now I feel the same about Nigel Lambert who is unutterably superb as the reader, the bringer to life, of this lovely collection of stories.
