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