I always enjoy Wodehouse and especially read by Jonathon Cicil, however, the quality of the recording is terrible. Need a quite road, crank the volume but adjust the bass and treble and at the same time turn down your player to minimize static.
My enthusiasm for P G Wodehouse stories caused me to overlook the reviews. The sound is muffled and very hard to hear. Do not purchase this audiobook.
I hope the enhanced version is better. I almost couldn't finish this in format 4. The sound was very muddy and I often couldn't understand what the narrator was saying (a sin in a Wodehouse story). Love Jonathan Cecil and Wodehouse, but not this recording.
Although the book is overall great, the racial slurs against african americans, italians and the irish are very disappointing. Because I love P.G. Wodehouse, it makes me sad to see this side of his character.
This book is great. But, 'Leave It To Psmith' is still the funniest ever.
Outstanding as always!
The Psmith books are my favourite of all the Wodehouse classics and the narrator is excellent. This is a must get for any Wodehouse fan.
"Across the pond humour"
This is a wonderful book which deserves to be better known. The mix of English oxbridge and New York underworld is brilliantly handled with the usual Wodehouse flair for language. Jonathan Cecil reads all parts well
"Psmith is let down"
Although Psmith Journalist is a terrific novel, the recording of it is too muffled to make easy listening. I gave up
"Jonathan Cecil delivers again"
Yes. Not only is the book an early gem - one of the only Wodehouse novels that attempts to tackle contemporary social issues such as slum housing and organised crime in New York - it is, as ever, extremely funny and very well read by Jonathan Cecil, who is for my money the best reader of Wodehouse's work on audiobooks.
It is comparable to Wodehouse's other stand-alone work (A Damsel in Distress, Hot Water, Summer Moonshine and so on - there are a few other novels featuring Psmith but they're their own thing) and other semi-comical social commentary, such as John Lanchester's Capital.

Organised crime and corruption have a new enemy - and its name is Cosy Moments.
"Great book! Well read"
Psmith Journalist is one of the best Wodehouse books. I love this series and this is one of the best.
Psmith travels to America and takes over a quiet housekeeping magazine. Hilarity ensues.
Jonathan Cecil is always good, but if you find a very posh voice annoying, avoid. It suits Wodehouse though.
