©Trustees of the Wodehouse Estate; (P)1990 Chivers Audio Books
I have to agree with the previous reviewer. This is a poor quality recording compared to most other books I have downloaded from Audible. Very sad because I think the narrator is wonderful, but the recording is distorted and blurred, impossible in the car and distracting any other place. I downloaded it twice just to make sure I had the best quality and there were no other problems, but they are the same. Hopefully, this can be corrected.
If you love classic British humor, and you haven't stumbled upon Wodehouse yet, you are missing out. The storylines are all similar, impossibly soap-opera-like and hilarious. The characters are mostly bumbling, not too bright aristocrats, with the occasional level-headed character that gets them out of their scrapes.
I found the recording of this book to be somewhat unclear, and recorded in too low a pitch to hear well in the car, even when the volume of the stereo was turned up all the way. The narrator's voice was slightly blurry, I'm not sure if this is due to the actor or the recording quality, but it definitely took away from the enjoyment of the novel.
Everyone should listen to it. I have played it several times already and I find it excellent.
"Very enjoyable but spoilt by recording"
voice and accent perfectt but fluctuations in volume spoilt it. Otherwise one of the best. .
