Customer Review

on 15 February 2006
After discovering the joys of PG Wodehouse last year I became a dedicated fan and started hunting out every book I could. I got to a bit of a dilema when trying to choose between this book and 'Blandings Castle', another volume of short stories published by Penguin, containing 5 Blandings stories, 1 Bobbie Wickham story and 5 Mulliners of Hollywood stories, whilst 'Lord Emsworth Acts for the Best' contains 8 Blandings stories. I initally chose 'Blandings Castle' and was given the second volume at a later date. I am ecstatic that I was. Whilst both books are brilliant 'Lord Emsworth...' contains the real gem of Wodehouse's short stories: 'A Crime Wave at Blandings', which is the funniest thing I have ever read and is a great example of Wodehouse's genius, I would therefore recommend buying both books (or getting people to buy them for you!) because whilst 'Blandings Castle' at first seems to be greater value for your money with its amount of stories (which, don't get me wrong, are great) any true Blanding's fan will love 'Lord Emsworth Acts for the Best' just for its extra 3 stories, especially 'A Crime Wave'.
