Publisher's Summary

Jimmy Crocker, a.k.a. Piccadilly Jim, is a lively young American ex-newspaper man who meets Ann Chester, the girl of his dreams, in London. Problem is, Jim once wrote a bad review of her first book of poetry. They set sail to New York together with Ann still not knowing he's the dastardly critic! Add a brilliantly colourful Manhattan setting, an unlikely butler, odd spies, eccentric 'tecs, scientific secrets, plus an odious boy called Ogden, and the ingredients are here for one of P.G. Wodehouse's most dazzlingly comic feasts.

Wonderfully funny listening that keeps up a swift pace, thanks to the classic combination of Martin Jarvis reading Britain's finest comic writer, P.G. Wodehouse.

    "New Wodehouse characters and a very good story"

    Another great story from the incomparable Wodehouse, a new set of intriguing characters, getting themselves in unlikely muddles and brought to life so well by Martin Jarvis. You can foresee the disasters coming, but as you can be sure it will all work out happily in the end, relax and enjoy with a gentle smile on your face.

    "I really enjoyed this one"

    I first listened to Leave it to Psmith and liked it. I liked this one even more. For anyone that likes the writing style of Wodehouse you'll like this one.

    "Wodehouse and Jarvis: The perfect combination"

    You simply cannot go wrong with Wodehouse and a narrator like Martin Jarvis. I would go ahead and say that Jarvis is the definitive narrator for Wodehouse. Piccadilly Jim is a great example of this. Brimming with wit and narrated with equal aplomb, this is a marvellous audiobook. A true must-have.

    "Laugh Till The End!!!"

    My first with PG Wodehouse and surprise it's one of the Classic literatures. But it doesn't stop me to love the story so funny and full of adventure.
    I love to venture another PG Wodehouse's works available at Audible.

    What a combination! Wodehouse wit and Martin Jarvis's perfect delivery. Guaranteed to cheer you up. Warning: may cause laughing out loud on public transport. Be careful!

    Story
    "Deliciously Convoluted"
    What made the experience of listening to Piccadilly Jim the most enjoyable?

    Martin Jarvis as narrator is an inspired choice, easily my favourite actor for reading PGW. He brings the words to life with such evident enjoyment, giving each character an accent so finely tuned to their own idiosyncrasies you are never lost in this dense plot of intrigue and counter intrigue. Piccadilly Jim is a comic classic with many unlikely escapades to keep the reader highly entertained


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot is constantly delivering new trips and twists to keep the action flowing


    What about Martin Jarvis’s performance did you like?

    He is a master of comic accent, his Americans are particularly fun and well realised.


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

    Theoretically you could, and I might do on second and third sittings in future.
