Wodehouse has been narrated hilariously by a number of readers in the past few years, and John Wells now takes his place among them. He narrates the body of this work in measured British tones, but when he voices a character, he becomes another man (or woman). His aged Lord Emsworth, for example, is breathtakingly dotty, sounding perfectly vacuous and dazedly confused by everything. Even the women come across well, from Lady Constance, to the young love interests. The story is another Blandings Castle tale of impersonations, misunderstandings and upper-crust hauteur. With Wells' skill together and Wodehouse's humor--this audiobook is irresistible. D.R.W. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
