Quotes & Awards

  • “Cecil delivers what seems to be a full cast performance all by himself, as he shifts pace, tone, even breath quality, to bring dozens of characters to life. This recording is a rare treat.” 

    AudioFile

  • “A major delight of Wodehouse’s timeless comedy is his enduring optimism. Jonathan Cecil has an amazing range of vocal dexterity, making both the squeakiest of pipsqueaks and the gruffest of old blusterers equally convincing. Highly recommended.”

    Library Journal

  • “Wodehouse’s novels are the very definition of British humor—bubblingly witty and dryly loony.”

    " Laughed out loud in every chapter. How could anyone not enjoy Wodehouse? Where else would you find characters with names like Oofy Prosser, Pongo Twistleton, Cyril "Barmy" Fotheringay-Phipps,and Mordred Mulliner? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 2/18/2014

    " The reader must be warned before reading Wodehouse, ANY Wodehouse. The reader should not be in area where out burst of laughter are frowned upon and the reader should be careful as to what they are doing while reading. For example: I would not attempt to eat, operate electrical or mechanical equipment, or shave while reading. It would be best to find a comfortable chair, sit down and prepare to enjoy one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. "

    " Wodehouse hits the spot with each story in this collection. Written by any other, the stories would be repetitive and formulaic. Woven by Wodehouse, it is a treasure store of comic timing, perfectly crafted prose, and side splitting sentences. One of his best! "
