It's such a dilemma. Jonathan Cecil does a far better job reading the PSmith books, but the Frederick Davidson recordings have much better sound quality. Davidson presents PSmith as if he is essentially a wordier Bertie Wooster. His tone is all snide-ness and knowing. But PSmith is a far more intelligent, and a far FROM hapless, creature. He is stylish, to be sure, and somewhat affected, but more-than-perfectly competent. Cecil nails the tone, and in his various readings, makes each of the two characters clear, and different. I'm going back to the Cecil.

I love Wodehouse stories. The narration left something to be desired. Many times the narrator sounded tired or bored. And, it was not fluid. There was a lot of repetitive reading. Maybe the editing is to blame. It was not as enjoyable to listen to as some of the other Wodehouse book.
