    Story
    (26)

    Someone has stolen - yet again - Uncle Tom's antique silver cow-creamer. Suspicions fall on Wilbert Cream, believed to be a wealthy American practical joker and kleptomaniac known as Broadway Willie. But the incident only marks the beginning of Bertie Wooster's problems. It is only by a stroke of rare - very rare - genius that Bertie Wooster finds a solution. He recalls Jeeves, his incomparable manservant, from his annual holiday at Herne Bay, and Jeeves sorts out everybody and everything in his usual inimitable style.

    Sarah says: "Same book as "How Right You Are, Jeeves""

    Would you try another book from P. G. Wodehouse and/or Frederick Davidson?

    I've been making my way through all the Jeeves stories. This is not my favorite narrator, but I couldn't find this story read by Ian Carmichael, so I gave this a try. It's not a case of just getting used to a different voice. It's read with all the personality of a restaurant specials menu. It sounds like he never read through the lines at all before recording them. Awkward stops in the middle of sentences, weird emphasis of words, or lack of emphasis. All voices sounds pretty much the same.

    A big thanks to the first reviewer who gave the tip that this is the same story as How Right You Are Jeeves. I'm back on track. Audible should remove this half-hearted production from it's library!


    What didn’t you like about Frederick Davidson’s performance?

    Choppy. Lacking personality. I know the wit is dry, but not every single sentence!
