Mostly good book

(4 Sterne)

The story is lighthearted and laugh out loud funny in spots. The readers are mixed, some are good, some unbearably painful to listen to; use GE to adjust out the noises.

mostly Good, could've been better

(4 Sterne)

The second appearance of Wodehouse's earliest-known characters, the incomparable Psmith, Etonian, unruffled fixer and nominal socialist, has retained some of his unflappable schoolboy tactics. The book belongs to the earlier wodehouse work, predating the eventually famous Jeeves and Blandings stories. some of the readers have exceptional narrating skills. some chapters don't have good audio compounded with slow reading and difficult dialects which make it challenging to understand the text and the narrative environment. perhaps a single narrator for the entire novel would have captured the consistency in tone and enunuciation suitable for the long-winded writing style and complex sentences that wodehouse characteristically employs.

A good book
