Reviews

(4 stars)

The oldman reviewer said it perfectly. This is a witty collection of sayings & stories. If you want to read something with a central theme then this isn't what you should be picking. I listened before bed when I prefer something like this & short stories. I love Wodehouse.

OUT OF ADJECTIVES

(5 stars)

One runs out of adjectives trying to laud the humor of PGW. Everyone should enjoy this varied collection as pokes fun at various persons and institutions, including himself. The reading is very well done, with just the correct amount of tongue-in-cheek voice inflection.

I liked this book well read and I just seen it as Wodehouse writing about different subjects and events in a short story form. Very well read and I enjoyed it. Thanks to Kevin McAsh for a great reading. Enjoy!

Bummer

(2 stars)

I love PG Wodehouse, but this wasn't my type of hype, it reads like a diary, rambling all over the place. Don't get me wrong, I like a good bit of anecdote, and Wodehouse's dry wit is present in each chapter, but it didn't capture my attention, the subjects were just too different from each other. Reading was good, no complaints, I just didn't like the book, it needed a theme to tie it together.
