While the Oldest Member sits in the clubhouse quoting Marcus Aurelius on patience and wisdom, outside on the green the fiercest human passions burn. All kinds of human life are here, from the cocky professional Sandy McHoots to the shy Ramsden Waters, whose only consolation is golf. Even golf-haters will not be able to resist stories that so perfectly blend physical farce with verbal wit and a gallery of unforgettable characters.
"[Wodehouse is] a brilliantly funny writer - perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has yet produced." (The Times, London)
"Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever." (Douglas Adams)

I prefer the stories read by Jonathon Cecil
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Only the narrator, the stories are very entertaining.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Clicking of Cuthbert?
All of the stories are very well written. There is no author of the genre to compare with P G Wodehouse.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator sounds too pompous.
Any additional comments?
I prefer the delivery of Jonathon Cecil.
