Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi | 2/12/2014

    " Collection of short stories that includes six set at Blandings Castle (all of which were hilarious), one featuring Bobbie Wickham, and five about the Mulliners of Hollywood (funny enough but a bit too repetitive). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neil | 2/8/2014

    " Superlative collection of short stories although only six of the twelve are about Blandings castle, but they are amongst Wodehouse's best and include "The Custody of the Pumpkin" "Lord Emsworth and the Girl Friend" and best of all the immortal "Pig-Hoo-o-o-o-ey." For the rest of the books we get "Mr Potter takes a rest cure" the only story to star Bobbie Wickham solo and five Mr. Mulliner stories all set in Hollywood. The Mulliner's are particularly interesting as they were obviously all inspired by Wodehouse's otherwise unproductive stay in Hollywood as a scriptwriter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hrishikesh | 2/7/2014

    " The greatest Wodehouse book till date. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tai Odunsi | 2/1/2014

    " "The Rise of Minna Nordstrom" is very very funny! "

    " Way out of this world! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 1/16/2014

    " Classic Wodehouse. Good, but ordinary for him. Not a standout. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patty | 1/14/2014

    " I adore Wodehouse. How does he come up with these things? Most of these short stories are about the group at Blandings Castle but some are about life in Hollywood. Just typical Wodehouse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 12/31/2013

    " I was pleased to discover Wodehouse excels at more than just writing about Jeeves and Wooster. Surprised, though, that the whole book wasn't about Blandings Castle, but I slowly warmed to the idea and began to enjoy the second part also. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carole | 11/15/2013

    " Can't be unhappy while reading Wodehouse! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krisette Spangler | 10/25/2013

    " I really loved the first five stories in this book that dealt with the characters from Blandings Castle. The last half of the book was not as good. Wodehouse includes several stories dealing with Hollywood at the end of this volume, and I felt like they were a little flat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rickeclectic | 10/19/2013

    " One of the Blandings series, with Emsworth, the Empress and plenty of interesting turns. Great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kailey | 9/8/2013

    " Not as funny as some of his other books, and I didn't like the short story format. Still.. the stories are great and imaginative! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Our Intrepid Heroine | 6/1/2013

    " I was uninterested in the Mulligan stories, but Blandings Castle cracks me up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Titeersha | 3/19/2013

    " 'On rising',he told Wilmot,'take the juice of an orange.For luncheon,the juice of an orange.And for dinner the juice-'-he paused before springing in the big surprise-'of an orange'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Panther | 3/3/2013

    " Delicious. So good to know there's life after Jeeves. Jorn, you would love it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tashfeen | 2/27/2013

    " This one's not too great. Though the name of the book is Blandings Castle but there only a few initial short stories on Blandgings and after that the book moves away to a different line of stories on Mr. Mulliner in Hollywood. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 2/16/2013

    " A collection of Wodehouse stories. Some are at Blandings Castle and some are Mr. Mulliner's tales of his various relatives with Hollywood connections. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jon Gordon | 2/5/2013

    " It's PG Wodehouse; you know what you're getting! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Tuley | 11/29/2012

    " If it happened at Blandings Castle, it's priceless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn Estepp | 10/30/2012

    " Blandings shorts. Funny, as you would expect. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 10/7/2012

    " People on the commuter rail now hate me when I read a Wodehouse- too much laughing. Ah well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gricel | 9/14/2012

    " This was my first Wodehouse. A fun read, but I regret choosing a story collection for my first PGW experience because it felt like I never had enough time to get to know the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen Fagerburg | 8/30/2012

    " I *love* P.G. Wodehouse's stories. They're like watching a British comedy show, in book form. They're clean and very funny. Light reading, but still with an intellectual flavor to it, and very entertaining. Most of his stories poke subtle fun at the upper crust in 1920s England. "
