Good entertainment

(4 stars)

These stories are good entertainment; funny, whimsical and, at times, clever. They are read fairly well, though a few errors got past the prooflisteners (chapters 14 and 15 contain repeated sentences). Overall a good listen. Thanks, readers!

Classic Wodehouse, nice collection. Thanks to the readers.

Well read classic collection of his stories

(4 stars)

for golfers & gamblers

(3 stars)

At least half of these stories as of no interest unless you are a golfer, or enjoy hearing about idiotic gambling schemes. Since I find golf boring, and I find gambling an unfortunate addiction instead of a "flutter," I was able to enjoy only half of these stories.
