Take a house party in France, throw in a peculiar bunch of guests and add in a dash of PG Wodehouse’s quintessentially English dry wit and you have yourself a story that will leave your sides splitting. Wodehouse is synonymous with a great story that is jam-packed full of quirky characters and comical goings on and Hot Water is no exception. This audiobook on CD is the perfect example of Wodehouse at his humourous best.
The house party at Château Blissac in Brittany is a yearly event that never fails to attract a selection of oddballs, and this year’s party has reached new heights of oddballery. The party is usually hosted by Mr J. Wellington Gedge’s wife, but this year she has decided to go away for a while leaving her husband to play unwitting host to a house full of eccentric cranks intent on ludicrous pranks. An important letter ends up missing leaving Senator Opal in proverbial hot water and thus unfolds a tale with the most unpredictable twists and turns.
These six audiobooks on CD have a running time of just over seven hours as Wodehouse leads listeners on a trail of safe cracking and accusations, as well as a little light panicking and corruption that will keep you glued right to the end.
