P.G. Wodehouse
Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, (1881–1975) was a British novelist, short story writer, journalist, playwright, poet and lyracist, immensly popular for his sense of humor and mastery of language.
Best known for his Jeeves series, Wodehouse created the most resourseful and competent servant in literature, the word "Jeeves" itself has become part of the vernacular. Wodehouse also had great success as a musical theater lyricist, making contributions to "Show Boat" and "Anything Goes".
Born in England to a noble family, Wodehouse's writings reflected his background, a truly humourous perspective on the upper class. During a stay in Manhattan, Wodehouse met his wife and settled in New York, with a brief adventure in Hollywood to write screenplays. Living into his nineties, Wodehouse enjoyed the fruits of his labor and acclaim worldwide, a happy, funny man.

Great stories, too bad the narrator is an idiot

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Wodehouse never disappoints, but the narrator's mannerisms can be distracting. I would recommend it with that caveat. The stories are fantastic. Maybe another recording with a different narrator.

Would you be willing to try another one of David Thorn’s performances?

NO. He rolls his "r's" in his normal speech. If he was doing it to illustrate a character, that would be one thing-- but the affectation of rolling "r's" is just too distracting. And seriously annoying.

Brilliantly narrated light reading

A lovely comic light reading. The book consists of several independent episodes, ideal for when you want some short "bedtime stories".

The narrator is brilliant.
