Publisher's Summary

Meet Psmith, with a silent 'P' as in psychic. A gallant, charming individual, Psmith has a gift for getting into awful scrapes, and when he takes over a gentile journal known as Cosy Moments with the aid of Billy Windsor, its sub-editor, he turns it into a radical publication...with alarming and hilarious results.

Terrible quality

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

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.

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!

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.

Ah Psmith

Psmith is an amiable force of nature wrapping all about him up into his schemes. This is an odd duck in the Psmith cannon with a light social concern for New York tenements paired with antics. Be warned there are some unsavory racial slurs tossed about in the colloquial manner of his day and locale.

Remarkable!!!

Here is Wodehouse at his peak power! No such a thing as a bad Wodehouse book! Nevertheless, in all Psmith stories you get, Wodehouse, whole Wodehouse and, nothing less.

Well it is 100 years old

There are many great lines here, and the comic tension between artist Psmith and the New York works pretty well. I wish the racism had been excised (easy to do). The least of the dozen or so Wodehouse works I've listened to or read. For fans only.

Another great Psmith book

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.

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.
