P G Wodehouse’s many tales continue to be read and enjoyed some 37 years after his death at the age of 94 on St Valentine’s Day – sadly only weeks after he was knighted. Now, this audiobook collection of his finest works on CD and MP3 gives you a new way to enjoy these tales of the English upper classes. In A Few Quick Ones, Wodehouse offers us a tantalising taste into the lives of some of his favourite characters as he brings them together for a party. Characters such as the wonderfully named Oofy Prosser, Bingo Little, Jeeves and Wooster and the Drones are all invited to the shindig that is a must-buy for any avid Wodehouse fan.
The 10 stories in this collection include ‘The Fat of the Land’, ‘Scratch Man’, ‘The Right Approach’, ‘Jeeves Makes an Omelette’, ‘The Word in Season’, ‘Big Business’, ‘Leave it to Algy’, ‘Joy Bells for Walter’, ‘A Tithe for Charity and ‘Offy, Freddie and the Beef Trust’. Wodehouse’s characters are well known for their cheeriness and jollity that is evident throughout many of his tales, and each one boasts a bonhomie personality that draws you in, thanks to Wodehouse’s unique writing style.
Wodehouse’s most popular characters are Jeeves and Wooster, who also appear in this unique collection of stories on audiobook. Numerous Wodehouse stories have been transformed into CD audiobooks that bring Wodehouse’s works to life with the humour and charm that he was famed for, so why not kick off your collection with this rather jolly little cluster of japes, high jinxs and general English twitery?
