TOUR DE FARCE

(4,5 Sterne)

A fun collection of Wodehouse short stories. The narrator gave additional impetus to the humor. This migjt be a book which is better for listening than for my own rrading.

Wonderful!

I am just discovering Wodehouse. My comment is a repeat of s/o else, because it says everything. "The stories are the standard (and great Wodehouse), but the reader is something else. I would assume he must be a professional given his abilities. He reads incredibly including being able to do consistent distinct multiple character voices. Absolutely fabulous."

incredible

Lovely Wodehouse short stories which I hadn't heard before. Nicely read. On the whole in this case I enjoyed the voice characterisation except that the reader ought not attempt a French accent.

Fantastic stories, fantastic reader!

These are some wonderful, bite-sized chunks of Wodehouse, that can be enjoyed during little gaps in the day. Uncharacteristically, not all of these stories have happy endings, but there is still more than enough hilarity. The reader does an excellent job all round, but especially in terms of the characters' voices.

Typical L.O.L. Wodehouse!

perfect reading for P.G. Wodehouse. I find his sense. of humor to be in line with my own. I love listening to Wodehouse books. I wish for more Jeeves and Wooster! These stories are especially funny. Mike Harris is an incredible actor! His reads are perfect!

Very funny stories

PL'd this and I spent a lot of time laughing out loud. Not a good idea when you are in an office, oh well. Mike H is an awesome reader. You will love this collection. Enjoy!

Outstanding Reader!

Currently I have been binge listening to Wodehouse and can’t stop laughing! Mike Harris with his various British accents for individual characters makes this very British comic writer so much more funny! Great entertainment!
