    Bertie Wooster's friend Gussie Fink-Nottle is sentenced to 14 days for wading in the fountain at Trafalgar Square. Bertie is worried that Gussie's fiancé Madeline will be angry because she has a distressing habit of turning her attentions to Bertie when her fiancé upsets her. Bertie has the bright idea of impersonating Gussie, and showing up at Deverill Hall. The situation is wonderfully comical when Gussie shows up, posing as Bertie. Only Jeeves, arriving in his own disguise, can sort out this mess.

    Esquire says: "perfect comic timing"
    "Stimulates the brain"
    Overall

    The narrator of this book is a comic genius. With Wodehouse at the helm and Cecil's tongue tilling the tale, your screams of laughter will be heard all the way to Basingstoke.

    Set during the time of the Napoleonic Wars, this classic gives a satirical picture of a worldly society. The novel revolves around the exploits of the impoverished but beautiful and devious Becky Sharp.

    Constance says: "A book that was meant to be read aloud!"

    The narrator for this book was born to give us the beauty of the spoken words of Thackeray. There is no better way to follow the escapades of the characters of Vanity Fair!

    When Sandy Campbell's body is found at the foot of a cliff near the small town of Kircdubright, the local constabulary are convinced that the argumentative painter is a victim of a tragic accident. But when Lord Peter Wimsey turns up, the hunt begins for an ingenious killer. Faced with six men, all of whom have a motive for murder, the aristocratic amateur sleuth must deduce which are the five red herrings and which has blood on his hands.

    Constance says: "Rather enjoyed the different accents!"

    Overall

    The "Five Red Herrings" are all suspects in the murder of an irascible character named Campbell. If you enjoy listening to a good Scottish brogue then this recording is for you. I loved every minute of it and I am afraid that I am now trying to roll my "r"'s far more often than the average Canadian speaker.:-)
