Wonderfully funny listening that keeps up a swift pace, thanks to the classic combination of Martin Jarvis reading Britain's finest comic writer, P.G. Wodehouse.

Another great story from the incomparable Wodehouse, a new set of intriguing characters, getting themselves in unlikely muddles and brought to life so well by Martin Jarvis. You can foresee the disasters coming, but as you can be sure it will all work out happily in the end, relax and enjoy with a gentle smile on your face.
I first listened to Leave it to Psmith and liked it. I liked this one even more. For anyone that likes the writing style of Wodehouse you'll like this one.
You simply cannot go wrong with Wodehouse and a narrator like Martin Jarvis. I would go ahead and say that Jarvis is the definitive narrator for Wodehouse. Piccadilly Jim is a great example of this. Brimming with wit and narrated with equal aplomb, this is a marvellous audiobook. A true must-have.
Mom of 3 and a book lover.
My first with PG Wodehouse and surprise it's one of the Classic literatures. But it doesn't stop me to love the story so funny and full of adventure.
I love to venture another PG Wodehouse's works available at Audible.
"Don't miss this one!"
What a combination! Wodehouse wit and Martin Jarvis's perfect delivery. Guaranteed to cheer you up. Warning: may cause laughing out loud on public transport. Be careful!
Martin Jarvis as narrator is an inspired choice, easily my favourite actor for reading PGW. He brings the words to life with such evident enjoyment, giving each character an accent so finely tuned to their own idiosyncrasies you are never lost in this dense plot of intrigue and counter intrigue. Piccadilly Jim is a comic classic with many unlikely escapades to keep the reader highly entertained
The plot is constantly delivering new trips and twists to keep the action flowing
He is a master of comic accent, his Americans are particularly fun and well realised.
Theoretically you could, and I might do on second and third sittings in future.
