    "Hard to hear"

    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.

    "Very bad sound quality"

    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.

    "Terrible quality"

    I'm with Frank. I love Wodehouse and Jonathan Cecil but I can't listen to this.

    "Poor sound quality in format 4"

    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.

    "AUDIO QUALITY PERFECT NOW!!"
    Would you listen to Psmith Journalist again? Why?

    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.


    If you’ve listened to books by P.G. Wodehouse before, how does this one compare?

    This book is great. But, 'Leave It To Psmith' is still the funniest ever.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Cecil’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Outstanding as always!

    "Psmith Journalist"

    Sound quality not up to standards. Don't waste your time. Just too english for my taste even though I'm a fan of the author's other works.

    "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
