Summer Lightning by P.G. Wodehouse – A Book Review

Week two of my book challenge and I’ve opted for a classic, the second in Wodehouse’s Blandings series.

Something Fresh (Blandings #01)

P.G. Wodehouse is an author I have only recently discovered despite being fairly well known and being first published in the early 1900’s. My first venture into his work was by audiobook, the first of his Blanding’s novels called Something Fresh and it was possibly the most perfect audiobook I have as yet encountered. The story is engaging without requiring too much concentration; ideal for driving or knitting or any other everyday task. The humour light and quick without being stupid or crude and the characters extremely well drawn without hours of description. Add to this a wonderfully fitting narration and you have the most rounded experience of an audiobook you could ever hope for. Yes, it really is that great!
