The Man With Two Left Feet, and Other Stories is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United Kingdom on March 8, 1917 by Methuen & Co., London, and in the United States in 1933 by A.L. Burt and Co., New York. All the stories had previously appeared in periodicals, usually the Strand in the UK and the Red Book magazine or the Saturday Evening Post in the US. It is a fairly miscellaneous collection — most of the stories concern relationships, sports and household pets, and do not feature any of Wodehouse's regular characters; one, however, "Extricating Young Gussie", is notable for the first appearance in print of two of Wodehouse's best-known characters, Jeeves and his master Bertie Wooster (although Bertie's surname isn't given and Jeeves's role is very small), and Bertie's fearsome Aunt Agatha.

Another Good Wodehouse!

(4 Sterne)

This is a neat collection of short stories by PG Wodehouse, who is one of my favorite authors. I seldom hear or read a book by him that doesn't have me laughing out loud. This book is no exception. I especially love "The Mixer", which is a wonderful story told from the dog's perspective. Reader did a very nice job, clear and easy to follow. Enjoy!

Funny stories, excellent reader

(4 Sterne)

It is an eclectic collection of stories - many have a bit of romance. I enjoyed the two stories written from the dog's perspective - so funny to hear how perplexing we are to one who simply wants to please! Michael Yard does an excellent job of reading. He has a great sense of timing that lets the humor of Wodehouse shine through.

fun collection of stories

(5 Sterne)

this volume from the always great Wodehouse is a great read, with humor, pathis, and insight to the human (and dig and cat ) condition. Very good reader keeps the energy and interest high as well.

great, of course

I don't know if I will ever tire of Wodehouse's wit and dry humor.

More Fun Wodehouse stories!

(5 Sterne)

This is the second book of Wodehouse short stories I’ve listened to... I’m hopelessly addicted. The reader did a good job and I’m laughing out loud throughout. I love the fun and the happy endings. The stories told from dog’s perspective especially fun and different.

The recordings are great, the voices as well. The stories are fine, maybe not for my taste. I know they were supposed to be humorous but I am not really finding them funny. You could look on Goodreads for other reviews. Librivox rules anyway!

good stories

(4,5 Sterne)

Good fun stories with some great twists and always happy endings. Wodehouse does a great job with imaginative and intriguing tales. Well read, except a little more humor in the reading would make some of them laugh out loud funny.

I recall reading many of PG Woodhouse his stories in my youth. They are just as refreshing and entertaining today. The narrator, Michael yard, performed his task very professionally.
