Review: Summer Lightning, by P.G. Wodehouse

wodehouseOriginally published in 1929, this is another absurd send-up of the British aristocracy at which Wodehouse excelled. The Hon. Galahad Threepwood is busy writing his Reminiscences which promise to incriminate half of the local gentry, much to their horror. This promised publication leads to the abduction of Lord Clarence Emsworth’s prize pig, a.k.a. The Empress of Blandings. Then there is the chorus girl disguised as an American heiress, the flower pot throwing ex-private secretary and, did the butler do it after all? The narrator, John Wells does a fantastic job narrating, giving every character an appropriate voice.

RATING: * * * * Very, very good
