Really enjoying Wodehouse!

Luck of the Bodkins reeled me in with the opening description of Monty about to embark on speaking French and these are no disappointment.

The performance fits brilliantly and really brings the story to life!

Final outing for. Monty as funny as ever

Our hapless hero continues to cause laughs as only a Wodehouse character can - just don't listen when driving - you get strange looks in traffic jams as you're wiping the tears of joy from your face

Not terrible, but nothing to write home about

Featuring the cast of characters introduced in 'The Luck of the Bodkins' (also available here), 'Pearls, Girls...' sees Monty Bodkin still pursuing Gertrude Butterwick, self-made men still clashing with trust fund babies, and men's lives being run by battle-axe wives.

There are a few good lines, and the narration is as usual very good, but overall there's nothing here that isn't done better in the Jeeves or Blandings series.
