Wodehouse's Utopia seems effortless to the reader and yet the complexities of character and situation reveal a master storyteller at work. There is little more delightful for the listener than being transported into the prelapsarian aristocratic world of Wodehouse's plots and sub-plots.
This recording does more than justice to Wodehouse's genius. Martin Jarvis is unmatched in his ability to convey humour, emotion and drama in a full cast of characters, and the four CDs in this production are masterpieces of the audiobook art. No car journey will seem long with Heavy Weather playing and no afternoon will be so rewardingly spent as that shared with Wodehouse and Jarvis.
Quite simply a pleasure and delight from start to finish.
