The Adventures of Mr Verdant Green, Volume I

  • von Cuthbert Bede
  • Sprecher: Philip Bird

  • ungekürztes Hörbuch


A wonderfully amusing and engaging account of the escapades of a naive student thrown into university life amongst the hallowed halls of Oxford c. 1850. Widely regarded as a comic masterpiece of its time (it sold over 200,000 copies) it brings to mind the writing of Jerome K Jerome or an adventure PG Woodhouse might have penned for a slightly more academic Bertie Wooster. Cuthbert Bede, B.A. is the nom de plume of the Rev. Edward Bradley.

We are not amused

The presentation text above is too flattering. This is only mildly amusing at best and should never be compared to P.G.Wodehouse for lack of comic verve. Jerome K. Jerome comes a bit closer, but not his masterpiece "Three Men in a Boat", which is every bit as funny today as when it was written, whereas Mr. Cuthbert Bede's innocent prattle is seriously outdated.
The reader, Mr. Philip Bird, has the right accent and a pleasant voice, with just a slight inclination to overacting in dialogue scenes. I shall be glad to meet him again some other time, but it certainly won`t be in the second volume of this series.
