A FEW QUICK ONES

by | Read by Jonathan Cecil

Fiction • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

Once again Jonathan Cecil shows why he's the perfect choice to narrate P. G. Wodehouse's works. Cecil understands that the humor in these 10 stories comes not just from the pithy observations about British society, but also from their pace, tone, and interplay of dialect. Cecil's narration shifts for each character, sometimes in mid-word, as when one character interrupts himself, or is shocked by the actions of another. These stories bring back many classic characters, such as Jeeves and Oofy Prosser, for more fun, and Cecil manages to sound both straight-faced and tongue-in-cheek at the same time, a crucial factor in reading this collection appropriately.
