Great Book - Horrible Recording
Writing is great. Narration is good. Recording is the worst I've ever heard. Crackles and hissing would be fine - I've never been picky about sound quality. This has very frequent skipping where many words are missing. It could be whole sentences missing - it's hard to tell. There are authors where this would be less destructive of the story, but a Wodehouse book is about the beauty of the language and phrasing.
