Summary

In the bar-parlour of the Angler’s Rest, Mr Mulliner tells his amazing tales, which hold the assembled company of Pints of Stout and Whiskies and Splash in the palm of his expressive hand.

Here you can discover what happened to The Man Who Gave Up Smoking, share a frisson when the butler delivers Something Squishy on a silver salver (‘your serpent, Sir,’ said the voice of Simmons) – and experience the dreadful Unpleasantness at Bludleigh Court. Throughout, the Mulliner clan remains resourcefully in command in the most outlandish situations.

full of good stories

While it's full of good old Chesterton stories and that turn of phrase that makes you laugh out loud, it seems Mr. Mulliner is not my favourite character. and I have lost my heart to Uncle Fred! Mr. Cecil's narration is excellent as always.

Wodehouse on Top Form

There is scarcely need to review the content of this book - it is, as it says on the cover, by PG Wodehouse and is, therefore, a work of considerable genius. It is a collection of nine short stories originally published in 1929. Each story relates a tale of one of the narrators extended family and is told in the bar of Mulliners' local pub. Despite the efforts of his fellow drinkers to prevent him doing so, Mulliner always manages to tell his tale.

Jonathan Cecil, the narrator, does a wonderful job in capturing the voices and brightness of the delivery that is essential for Wodehouse.

Thoroughly recommended.

The Wodehouse/Cecil combo is unbeatable

As always magically genius. The Mulliner stories are amongst my favourite. The use of the language is BossLevel. Highly recommended

So good one of Wodehouse’s best works I enjoyed every minute of it and Cecil brings it to life with his fabulous narrations and gives each character life and personality
