The book is quite funny, but the reader Dinsdale Landen does not do it justice. He has a pleasant voice, and I'm sure he's very talented - but he reads too fast, crowding the sentences, and the voices of different speakers are too much alike. I found it difficult to tell who was speaking and when the speaker changed, and I kept wishing that it was Martin Jarvis or Jonathan Cecil reading, instead. It was heavy going, to quote Mr. Wodehouse.....
I'd give it 5 stars if Jarvis or Cecil was reading.
Compared to some of the other narrators of P.G. Wodehouse's books, this one was not pleasant to listen to--the characters often sounded alike and the narration seemed rushed. Not a bad PGW story; wish it would have been a different narrator.
"Good stuff from the master"
I love listening to P G Wodehouse audiobooks. He is such a good writer that it is sheer pleasure to go at the pace of the narrator so you can savour every word and chortle at every joke.
PGW is on top form in this quite short Jeeves outing. Dinsdale Landen is a fine narrator - really enjoying himself and bringing the book splendidly to life - but he goes just a tad too fast for my liking. Still, well worth a listen and excellent entertainment.
