Galahad Fleetwood, the brother of Lord Emsworth
A splendid book, beautifully read by Martin Jarvis; relaxing, delightful, clever, and light-hearted.
Yes, the language is wonderful and the reading brings out all the humor.

Yes, he is fantastic.
Many moments moved to laughter.
A great pleasure.
I wouldn't change anything, as Wodehouse remixes all his standard characters and plot devices for another humorous romp.
I am looking forward to other Wodehouse books read by Martin Jarvis.
He brings a cadence to the dialogue and a brisk breezy pace which set a proper tone.
This is another good Wodehouse story. Some readers might get tired of Wodehouse's use of the same plot devices over an over, and this would be a fair criticism. There is very often a case of mistaken identity and someone trying to steal something in order to avoid some embarrassment. And yet the characters are always good, there is always a decent amount of Wodehouse's dry wit, and a good human touch. Martin Jarvis is a great reader who adds a special dramatic touch to the characters and events. So all in all, great entertainment value. And this is, after all, what Wodehouse is generally about.
