When Lord Emsworth asks Galahad Threepwood to Blandings Castle to help him deal with a host of unwanted guests, Galahad finds burglary and matchmaking among his assignments. Listeners will hear the smile in Martin Jarvis's voice as he delivers Wodehouse's combination of oddball dialogue and odder situations. Jarvis narrates with a calm, dry wit that belies the frenetic events, while providing appropriate voices that convey the befuddlement, snobbery, obnoxiousness, or deviousness of Wodehouse's broad characters. Wodehouse's most famous characters are nowhere to be found, but his usual cases of mistaken identity, miscommunication, and petty concerns appear in full force. With Jarvis's reliable reading, Wodehouse fans won't miss Jeeves and Wooster. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
