Publisher's Summary

The life of Jimmy Crocker has been little more than one drunken brawl after another. His formidable Aunt Nesta has had enough of his antics and decrees that the young Crocker must be reformed. However, Jimmy has fallen in love and decided to reform himself. Unfortunately, to win the heart of his intended, Jimmy must pretend to be someone else and take part in the kidnapping of Aunt Netsa's loathsome offspring, Ogden. The reformation of oneself can be a decidedly tricky business.

    "Charming and cheerful"

    The reading is good, and the plot enjoyably and comically complex. A good listen

    "Light but glorious"

    Wodehouse masters mirth and is a craftsman of the English language. I bought this for my teenage sons for whom English is a second language. Wodehouse had them hooked and I was delighted to help either the odd bit of new vocabulary

    "not vintage Wodehouse uneven narration"

    This is a very early P G Wodehouse story, and he wasn't yet quite into the form he hit with the wonderful Jeeves and Blandings Castle stories. That said, his trademarks of gently affectionate humour, fantastically intricate plots which come together in the end, and beautiful prose are all there in an amusing and enjoyable tale.

    Jonathan Cecil is quite brilliant at narrating the Jeeves books but he struggles with this one. Pacing is a little uneven, as is his characterisation and his American accents are a tad clunky and unconvincing.

    I see that Audible has an abridged version of this book read by Martin Jarvis, my favourite narrator, which I suspect would be better value - as indeed would be any Jeeves book read by Jonathan Cecil. But failing that, I do think you might be better off reading the book.
