Jerome's classic British comedy is recounted by House's Hugh Laurie in a marvellously entertaining performance that will bring listeners to the banks of the Thames and carry them away into a world where three men and a dog named Montmorency venture from London to Oxford one sunny day. At just two and a half hours, the journey is short but sweet as Laurie captures the essence of Jerome's touching tale. With his classic witty tone, Laurie dives headfirst into each character, offering his own take on each colourful personality. There is a subtle theatrical aspect at work here as Laurie delivers a knockout one-man show that displays his wide-ranging talent.
The only thing you will be disappointed with is that in order to give the audiobook a more stream-like feel it is a 2-hour and a half abridged version. You’ll wish this were a full and unabridged recording. Imagine Mr. Wooster (as in Wooster & Jeeves) reminiscing of a trip with his pal Jeeves getting into trouble!
