this was a wonderful book. loved the plot, the narration, and the humor. Best if you are familiar with the typical cast of characters. So much funnier if you have experience with the Bertie/Jeeves books. Not great as a standalone in my opinion.
This is the first time I've listened to a Wodehouse book. So much fun. The narrator was good, though at times he seemed to forget who was speaking. Not a problem, though. I highly recommend this audible.
I can't put my finger on why this has been one of my least favs... Maybe that it is 2 hrs shorter? PGW's skill is word crafting. And anything ornate takes more work and time not less. That's my guess as to what was lacking... embellishment...
It is pleasant to discover that Wodehouse's power to entertain held up to the end. This recording of the very last novel he finished, Aunts Aren't Gentlemen, is delightful. Jeeves and Bertie are the same as ever even if the world of the 1970's, with its protest marches and its muggings, does intrude on their timeless England now and then. All the characters, old and new, are delightfully brought to life in this reading. They may be two-dimensional, but they are still hilarious
I have recommended this and all of the Wodehouse books to friends.
Bertie Wooster is such a wonderful horse's rear end, but hasn't a clue.
Bertie's trying to return the cat that he had stolen.
Wooster has cat problems
I loved the english accent of the narrator. Wodehouse's use of the english language for Bertie's telling the story is perfect.
Its a good book, but very Wodehouse in that it repeats the same sort of stories as a lot of the other books. Nevertheless it's very funny and takes you back to the fairy tale England of Wodehouse.
Yes, it is great fun and the narrator is terrific! He brings an extra bit of whimsy to the story.
All of them are fabulous and it is hard to pick only one.
Yes I have listened to other Jonathan Cecil recordings before and he is brilliant.
British humor at it's finest!
