Produktbeschreibungen

From Library Journal

Frederick Davidson may not be the best interpreter of P.G. Wodehouse's comic masterpieces, but he's not the worst and is assuredly the most active, with at least 25 Wodehouse titles under his belt. He is, in fact, one of the most popular and active readers in the general audiobook field. He reads with a dry British accent, low-key and almost drawling. His great weakness is that he enunciates all young women with the same breathy, indistinguishably vapid intonation. With men, on the other hand, he offers a wide interpretation, some quite funny as he portrays such personality traits as growling irascibility or stumbling befuddlement. Luckily for him here, there are few female characters. Author Wodehouse began publishing books in 1902 and died in 1975 after having been named a Knight of the British Empire. The present book first appeared in 1921 at a time when Wodehouse was at least as well known for his collaborative work in America as a playwright. As usual with Wodehouse, misunderstandings and coincidences abound. This is solid entertainment, recommended for public libraries.?Don Wismer, Cary Memorial Lib, Wayne, Me.

Pressestimmen

"The handsome bindings are only the cherry on top of what is already a cake without compare." (Evening Standard)

"Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in" (Evelyn Waugh)

"He exhausts superlatives" (Stephen Fry)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must-Read! 27. März 2000
Von Sandhya Sriraman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Poor Archie! Trying to win his stern old father-in-law over, only to land himself in deeper trouble! Getting locked out of his artist friend's apartment in a scarlet bathrobe, and many more such money-making schemes gone haywire, including those to get his f-in-law's approval. The portrait gone awry, and the shoes left outside the door.... Oh no! I'm not going to tell you anymore, you just must read this, and you'll find yourself laughing uncontrollably wondering how you ever thought the world was a drab place! With Wodehouse, there is always laughter in the world!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hotel de Wodehouse 9. Februar 2005
Von Gord Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
In addition to an avid enjoyment of the Drones, Jeeves, golf, and Mulliner tales, I find I am developing a marked taste for Wodehouse's light novels. Everything he touches, it seems, turns to laughter. Other places the commedia del arte takes place in motion picture studios, on cruise ships, at resorts on the French Riviera, but here the venue is the Hotel Cosmopolis, drawn, no doubt, from his observations of New York nightlife. And here's Archie, a good-hearted, bumbling Brit out to seek his fortune in the colonies. And of course he met a girl while vacationing. And of course she's a millionaire's daughter. And of course said millionaire is proprietor of said hotel. Does it sound like a formula? Right ho! a formula for fun. Richard Usborne says this book is a lot of stiched together stories. But so what? Ukridge is a lot of not stiched together stories. This book introduces one of Wodehouse's best heroines, Lucille, as the power behind the throne of the Lucy/Archie axis, together pitted against her anti-Archie father. How can you not order it?

5.0 von 5 Sternen What is there to say? It's P.G. Wodehouse! 9. Oktober 2012
Von Belizondo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
You just can't go wrong reading one of the funniest writers ever. And, you can't beat the price! I read all the Jeeves and Wooster as a young person and have just recently rediscovered Wodehouse and his treasure trove of other works. I highly recommend his stories for all ages.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another bumbling Brit out to seek his fortune on this side of the pond.... 8. Mai 2009
Von Robert McRobert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Swine flu or the recession got you down? Are you pinned against the ropes? Have you got the blues? Melancholia got you in its grip? Worried that Obama may not be able to get your brother-in-law the job running US Steel and thus off your couch? .... Fear not! The cry goes out: P.G. Wodehouse to the rescue! There is nothing like a good Wodehouse read to cheer one up, not a pill, not a drink, not a men or women - just Wodehouse! Wodehouse is what the doctor ordered to tickle you in the funny bone and get a smile going on the old face.

Here's Archie, a good-hearted, bumbling Brit out to seek his fortune in the colonies - all in the typically wonderful Wodehouse way! This book is totally hilarious! One loud laugh after another! A Wodehouse masterpiece!

If you love Monty Python, Faulty Towers, Jeeves and Wooster, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, and other witty British Comedies, you'll love this great Wodehouse work. The writing, plot, wit, and word play is spot on. This is timeless stuff. And can I add terrific? This is laugh out loud funny. I adored every moment!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wodehouse at his best 20. November 2007
Von Cecil Bothwell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
What fun! Humorist Wodehouse was near, perhaps at his best when he wrote ARCHIE. The humor is gentle and old fashioned by modern lights, but loses nothing in the telling, as Wodehouse spins his fiction and observes the social landscape of this, his adopted country.
