Absolutely. I've read all of Wodehouse's works and, although they are great in book form, they are even better in audiobook format. This is especially true with Jonathan Cecil as narrator. His character presentations are impeccable.
As is the case in many Wodehouse books it takes a little while to set everything up. Then, once all the pieces are in place, it is one riotous encounter after another. I won't ruin any of the specific moments, but even after having read the book and knowing generally what was coming, I had tears pouring out of my eyes I was laughing so hard at times!
Aunt Dahlia is classic, but they are all phenomenal.
The Code of the Woosters and its immediate predecessor Right Ho, Jeeves are two of my absolute favorite of Wodehouse.
The book is, for the most part, well researched and delivered. However, the author's bias comes through in several areas. This is most notable in his references to the impact of weapons brought into Mexico from the U.S. This is the same trope the left tries all the time so I shouldn't be surprised especially considering that the author is British (their take on this issue being inculcated from birth). There are a few glaring errors (Colorado's Super-Max prison isn't located in a desert, et al) and wild exaggerations that should have been caught.
Overall, the book provides some useful background to the lead-up to the mess Mexico finds itself in currently. It is just that reader may have to hold their proverbial nose through a few parts.
