    Story
    "So That's Where "Upstairs, Downstairs" Came From!"

    Having either read or listened to a number of the Blandings Castle stories, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Lord Emsworth and his looney family. I guess this book was probably written early in the series, before Freddie's marriage and the introduction of "The Empress". Although it contains many of the same plot elements of other Blandings sagas, there is a lot more action "below stairs" in this one which really does make it SOMETHING FRESH.

    "Great Story. Well Read. but. . ."
    Any additional comments?

    The only thing wrong with this is that the quality of the recording is poor. The reader does a fantastic job, but the sound is as if this were copied from a worn tape.

    Story
    "Bad narration further weakens a middling Wodehouse"

    I am a big Wodehouse fan but this is not one of his best novels. Still, it's an enjoyable story. It could have been lifted to be even better had the narrator been any good. Inexplicably, the producers went ahead with a narrator who can ONLY do funny old men voices. Thus, the young men sounded like old men, the young women sounded like old men, the Americans sounded like old British men, as did the servants, you get the idea. This was such a problem that I literally could not figure out which character was speaking during many of the scenes. I really cannot understand why the audiobook was allowed to be released in this condition.

    Story
    "Fun Fun Fun"

    I can't say much about this book except that it's not to be missed. It's great fun built around a sweet story of comical characters.

    Take a break from self-improvement, vampires, how [name here] beat drugs with Jesus and the latest anti-Obama conspiracy and give yourself a real light-hearted treat.

    This book is just fun and a vacation from the real world.

    I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    Chris Reich, BizPhyZ

    Any additional comments?

    PG Woodhouse books are just plain fun! This is a good one: mystery, romance, and a dash of upstairs/downstairs.

    "Funny Listen"

    I wasn't to optimistic about the laughing out loud claims made by commenters about funny audiobooks, but I am happy to say that they were right! This book is hilarious. I am not even finished; just had to write this review. You will not regret getting this listen!!

    "Terrible, old fashioned, just not worth listening"

    This is just an old fashioned book, the narration is not good and it was just boring. I bought it based on reviews, boy I was mistaken
