the usual for PG Wodehouse. I love him. Lots of laughs. ( )

A Blandings novel complete with the earl of Emsworth (my favorite character), Freddie and Galahad Threepwood (Galahad is another favorite) ( )

Yes, the story does sound familiar, with lots of business found in his other books. There's a necklace and trinket at the same jewelers, and the fact that Freddie asks his father, Lord Emsworth, to have the former sent to Paris and to bring the latter back with may be proof that Freddie is as lacking in intelligence and sense as his father thinks. Not that his father thinks very much. There are some funny conversations and the many mix-ups work. I love the idea that Galahad's solution to a problem is to coat a pig with phosphorus and put it in a bedroom. ( )

Lord Emsworth's niece Prudence is packed off to Blandings Castle to keep her away from an unsuitable young man, while jealousy threatens to come between Veronica (another of his nieces) and her very suitable suitor. The Hon. Galahad Threepwood and his nephew Freddie attempt to bring both couples back together.

Very much like the other Blanding Castle books then : ) ( )
  isabelx | Feb 24, 2011 |
Good fun, like all Wodehouse, but far from his best. Somehow it didn't seem to have his usual lightness of touch, and the story didn't pull me in quite enough to stop me rolling my eyes at the unlikely coincidences and misunderstandings. Nonetheless, a pretty entertaining read. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
The refined moon which served Blandings Castle and district was nearly at its full, and the ancestral home of Clarence, ninth Earl of Emsworth, had for some hours now been flooded by its silver rays.
Quotations
".... We talked it over and came to the decision that what he wanted was a shock. Nothing serious, you understand, just something that would arrest his attention and take his mind off his liver. So we borrowed a pig from a neighboring farm, smeared it with a liberal coating of phosphorous, and put it in his bedroom. It worked like a charm." [the Hon. Galahad Threepwood, p. 159]

Book description
Overlook Press blurb:
Despite marriage to a millionaire's daughter and success as the vice-president of Donaldson's Inc., manufacturers of the world-famous Donaldson's Dog-Joy, Freddie Threepwood, Lord Emsworth's younger son, still goes in fear of his aunts when at Blandings Castle. Full Moon tells the story of how he faces them down while promoting the love of Bill Lister and Prudence Garland.
A charming Blandings comedy with a full Wodehouse compliment of aunts, pigs, millionaires, colonels, imposters and dotty earls.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 014001652X, Paperback)

The moon beams down on Blandings Castle and sleep eludes the nervous Clarence, ninth Earl of Emsworth, compelled to play host to his younger son, Freddie. Lady Hermione Wedge, her beautiful daughter Veronica and a chap called Tipton Plimsoll, all add to Clarence's difficult situation.

(see all 4 descriptions)

The moon beamed down genially on the turrets and battlements of Blandings Castle. Sleep, however, eluded Clarence, ninth Earl of Emsworth. He was faced with the unpleasant prospect of playing host to his brother, sister and his niece.
