    " Like all the Wodehouse novels which I have had the pleasure to read 'Full Moon' had me stitches throughout the narrative. As usual, Blandings is home to cruelly separated lovers, thus the lovable but brutish-looking Bill Lister worms his way into the castle under many guises. They include: a painter of pigs, a gardener with an Assyrian beard, and long-dead wildlife artist Edwin Landseer. Add a wealthy American bachelor who is convinced that a- the afore-mentioned Bill Lister is an alcohol-induced hallucination and b- his married friend is getting it on with the girl of his dreams in secluded flower patches of the garden and you've got a recipe for farcical success! "

    " Amusing, but not one of Wodehouse's best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kanika | 2/8/2014

    " A nice read, but not as good as other Wodehouse books I've read, particularly the ones set at Blandings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JackieB | 2/2/2014

    " Silly and clever at the same time. I loved the word-plays and the clever way he used quotes to humourous effect. I'm sure I didn't pick up on all of the quotes, but that didn't spoil the fun. "

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

    " A Blandings Castle story. Full of those marvelous Emsworth misunderstandings and constantly intersecting, tangled plots. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian | 12/26/2013

    " Excellent Blandings story. Featured Galahad Threepwood and Hermione, a hitherto unseen Wodehouse Aunt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 julie | 12/15/2013

    " High-larious! This is the first Wodehouse I've enjoyed audibly and Jeremy Sinden is excellent. Loved his interpretation of Lord Emsworth and his languorous Veronica Wedge made me laugh. Generally, I've read Wodehouse, but now I want to listen to as many as possible! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rajendra Dave | 12/7/2013

    " Expected something better from Mr. Wodehouse. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Frankham | 12/1/2013

    " Wodehouse was at his best, and most fluent, either side of WWII, and this 1947 Blandings novel is on of the very best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Fieler | 11/19/2013

    " Sometimes you just need a little break from reality. PG Wodehouse gives me this as the master of mistaken identity and odd personalities. I can't even imagine what it would be like to live in the midst of characters such as these. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jomarybiv | 11/18/2013

    " When my brain needs a vacation, but my intellect can't bear a bodice-ripper, I come to good ol' Wodehouse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ensiform | 11/8/2013

    " A typically Wodehousian romp, supremely well written and extremely funny. The acme of hilarity for me was when Blister was apprehended as a burglar by the centenarian pig man Edwin Pott. The final wrap-up was a little bit too quick and easy, but right up to that point it was non-stop ha-ha. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 6/20/2013

    " Didn't care for this one particularly (maybe my own frame of mind) as it seemed too samey. More romantic entanglements and yet another problem with a diamond necklace. Not enough Lord Emsworth! And what is it with Wodehouse and "aunts"? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Mitchell | 5/8/2013

    " This was hilarious! That is if you like witty British humour, which I happen to love. A very light, sparkly read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 4/8/2013

    " A fun Blandings Castle Wodehouse that takes place after Pigs Have Wings (another fun one starring many of the same cast-members). It was silly, cheeky, had signature Wodehouse fantastically quick and funny dialogue. The perfect thing to distract me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas Wilson | 2/19/2013

    " Fun. Also read in September of 1982. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Summer | 12/21/2012

    " Wodehouse may keep using the same light formula in each of his books, but his writing is like a pleasant summer breeze, a warm nap by the fireside, a perfect slice of cheese on a hunk of fresh-baked bread. Even at his most monotonous, I can't be tired of him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon Mountjoy | 5/27/2012

    " A lovely book. Light, rewarding, and very funny. "

    " Madcap antics at Blandings castle. If you've read Wodehouse before, you know what to expect. This made me laugh at loud after a really crummy day. Plenty of starcrossed lovers and autocratic aunts, but a happy ending for all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 11/21/2011

    " This book is one of the Blandings Castle Series, with comings and goings that are hilarious. Wonderful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolanne | 5/12/2009

    " Funny at times, but not enough to keep me interested. There is only so many times two people who "love" each other can misinterpret and completely confuse simple situations. About the 4th time, I was ready to rip my hair out. Instead, I just returned the book to the library. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 4/15/2009

    " Wodehouse. Blandings. Even knowing that this is the book that PGW was writing when the Germans came calling at Le Touquet - and started all of the bother - cannot diminish my enthusiasm for this novel. If Prozac worked this well, Peter Kramer might not be famous. "

    " Another hilariious set of incidents at the Baldings Castle which could be turned into a great comedy movie, provided a good director can select the cast well.

    At times its too hilarious to be seated while reading this. "

About the Author

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
