Even listeners uninterested in cricket are likely to be gripped by descriptions of matches, and the plot, though slight, reaches a satisfying conclusion. But the real meat of the novel is to be found in the characters, especially the elegant Psmith, one of Wodehouse’s immortal creations, who features in three of his later novels (Psmith in the City, Psmith Journalist, Leave it to Psmith).

Mike and Psmith
Where does Mike and Psmith rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I have recently discovered Psmith read by Jonathan Cecil. There is no doubting the superiority of the later books and Cecil's narration has become the voice of Psmith, but if you enjoy the characters then this book is a must. Despite it being one of Wodehouse's earlier attempts, it is well written and thank goodness he went on to develop the characters as they because older. Graham Seed reads well.
What other book might you compare Mike and Psmith to, and why?
Wodehouse's golfing stories.
What three words best describe Graham Seed’s performance?
clear, well-paced voice.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
The answer to life the universe and everything is...cricket.
Any additional comments?
This book should be more widely read, as should Psmith himself.
