NOT GEORGE WASHINGTON by P. G. Wodehouse and Herbert Westbrook (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever.” (Douglas Adams, author of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”) P.G. Wodehouse’s autobiographical novel aptly describes the perils of a writer’s world in London circa 1900. The protagonist attempts by any means necessary to establish himself in literary circles, but his plans backfire and only a beguiling dénouement saves his skin. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator, Frederick Davidson. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “The very definition of British humor.”—Entertainment Weekly • EXPERIENCE.
