Can the Empress of Blandings win the Fat Pigs class at the Shropshire Show for the third year running? Galahad Threepwood, Beach the butler, and others have put their shirt on this, and for Lord Emsworth it will be paradise on earth. But a substantial obstacle lurks in the way: Queen of Matchingham, the new sow of Sir Gregory Parsloe. Galahad knows this pretender to the crown must be pignapped. But can the Empress in turn avoid a similar fate? In this classic Blandings novel, pigs rise above their bulk to vanish and reappear in the most unlikely places, while young lovers are crossed and recrossed in every room in Blandings Castle.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Had his only contribution to literature been Lord Emsworth and Blandings Castle, his place in history would have been assured. Had he written of none but Mike and Psmith, he would be cherished today as the best and brightest of our comic authors. If Jeeves and Wooster had been his solitary theme, still he would be hailed as the Master. If he had given us only Ukridge, or nothing but recollections of the Mulliner family, or a pure diet of golfing stories, Doctor Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse would nonetheless be considered immortal. That he gave us all those—and more—is our good fortune and a testament to the most industrious, prolific, and beneficent author ever to have sat down, scratched his head, and banged out a sentence.”

    Stephen Fry, praise for the author

Listener Opinions

    " It's always amazing to me how Wodehouse keeps his stories straight--and makes them mesh together so perfectly. I would be so confused if I was writing all the twists he puts in his plots! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenna | 2/15/2014

    " I enjoyed this, but went in with extremely high expectations because I'd heard a lot about P.G. Wodehouse, so I was slightly let down. I chuckled often, but expected to be practically crying laughing based on how funny the people are that recommended Wodehouse to me. I'm definitely willing to check out some of his other work based on this book though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 2/13/2014

    " I prefer the Jeeves/Wooster series by Wodehouse, but this was a fun, light read as well. Wodehouse gives me enough upstairs/downstairs British hijinx, so I'm fine being one of the few people not watching Downton Abbey. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nayantara | 2/9/2014

    " Blandings is my favourite! I love Empress and co! I do know that his humour only appeals to some people. If are one of those, this is one of his best books and a must read! The bizarro world of British elite is GREAT! I recommend this book to people who are familiar with the Bible, Shakespeare and 18th and 19th Century literature because Wodehouse always makes references to these things and it just adds to the humour if you can catch on! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/25/2014

    " A witty and fun read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 1/23/2014

    " Absurd, hilarious, and as dry as only the British can be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ram Kaushik | 1/14/2014

    " The sparkling genius of PGW at its best! Intricate plots involving pigs, portly butlers and mixed-up love triangles! Nefarious deeds afoot but when Galahad is at his post, never fear. Sheer brilliance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 1/12/2014

    " Back on form with a vengeance. Still the perennial romantic entanglements but these play second fiddle (quite rightly) to the real focus which is the pigs. The most seamless Blandings story yet "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 12/31/2013

    " It's P. G. Wodehouse and it fits my sense of humor. What else can I say? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 12/28/2013

    " I really liked this book. I Love any P.G. Wodehouse book; somehow I just get lost in the language of the thing. He once said that he wrote his books to sound like musicals--that's exactly what they remind me of. I also catch myself laughing out loud way too much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joni Hansen | 11/28/2013

    " PG Wodehouse just gets funnier and funnier to me! This was too much fun. I must remember to be on the lookout for a butler - they seem handy to have around in any situation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liam | 11/27/2013

    " I love PG Wodehouse, but this is the first book of his (I've read approx 15) that I've given up on. Too many characters, I just couldn't keep up with what was going on. Might be more of a reflection on my limited brain capacity though "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 11/7/2013

    " This is one of the funniest books I've ever read! I found the the folly of carting a prize pig around in a luxery car especially amusing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 9/4/2013

    " Pigs, sisters, brothers, guests, butlers, and secretaries. Lord Emworth will never have any peace! Another too soon over magic carpet ride through P.G. Wodehouses world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Libby | 8/15/2013

    " 3.5 - Wodehouse just makes me laugh! And the Audio versions are great! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronak Banker | 8/13/2013

    " Really funny plot when it starts... and then 'criminal' activities pick up on the part of both parties... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 7/4/2013

    " I love Lord Emsworth, though we see more of his brother, the Hon. Galahad Threepwood, in this excellent novel than we do of the Earl. Wodehouse farce at its best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ak Hauck | 6/9/2013

    " Giggled my way through Blandings Castle. One of Wodehouse's best. "

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

    " Lord Emsworth, Galahad, assorted likable young characters pining gently for each other, sparkling prose, and the Empress of Blandings -- the ingredients for another delightful Wodehouse concoction... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nan Silvernail | 5/2/2013

    " 3 sets of marriage-thwarted lovers, purloined plush pigs (plural), bicycling butlers. It's all in a few days work for the wonderful author, Wodehouse, the Bard of Blandings Castle. Rollicking good highbrow hijinks! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas Wilson | 11/2/2012

    " All Wodehouse is of course good, but this one is a cut above. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Swati Choudhary | 10/14/2012

    " Natural Humour!...A book to be picked after a heavy read "
