[Read by Nigel Lambert]
More shenanigans at Blandings Castle! -- Clarence, ninth Earl of Emsworth, sank back in his chair looking like the good old man in a Victorian melodrama whose mortgage the villain had just foreclosed. He felt the absence of that gentle glow which customarily accompanied the departure of one of his sisters. Lord Emsworth needed Galahad. There are tricky corners to be rounded, and assorted godsons, impostors, and pretty girls to be paired off. Fortunately, many years membership of the Pelican Club means the Hon. Galahad Threepwood is able to keep cool, stiffen his upper lip, and always think a shade quicker than the next man.

Audiobook Narrator Bio:
NIGEL LLAMBERT has appeared in Doctor Who, Bergerac, and Heartbeat. A frequent narrator for audiobooks and television, he provided the narration for Look Around You, a parody of educational science programs.
Here's another non-Jeeves comedy by the master. Blandings Castle, scene of many stories, is once again populated by irascible, forgetful, peevish, elderly characters and their wandering, impulsive, ne'er-do-well young relatives, with friends of each group abounding and servants, too. The usual misunderstandings involving theft and young love put the castle in a constant humorous uproar. Frederick Davidson has narrated other Wodehouse titles and many other books, and his faintly sardonic, cultured British approach is adequate, if unspectacular. While all his young women have the same vapid, breathy voices, he's quite successful with the males young and old, who rasp and mutter and fumble about nicely. D.W. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
