The Code of the Woosters is one of the best known of Wodehouse's Bertie and Jeeves series. Bertie's beloved Aunt Dahlia pressures him into stealing a cow-shaped silver creamer much coveted by his uncle from his arch rival in silver collecting, Sir Watkyn Bassett. At the same time, Bertie attempts to patch up the shaky romance between Guisse Fink-Nottle, the newt expert, and Madeline Bassett, a four star drip. The results of Bertie's efforts are, as always, a financial disaster. He nearly gets lynched, arrested and engaged by mistake. And, as always, Jeeves is on hand with a last-minute brainstorm to set everything straight. Read by a full cast.

Nicely done dramatization, but I would have preferred the unabridged version. Many of Wodehouse's delightful descriptive passages are lost in this much shorter rendition of the story.
