Publisher's Summary

Pretty, impecunious Sally Nicholas never dreamed a fortune could prove a disadvantage, until she became an heiress and watched in bewilderment as her orderly existence went haywire. Coping first with her brother's wild theatrical ambitions, then with the defection of her fiancé and his immediate replacement by a much more appropriate but strangely unattractive suitor, Sally finds that life in New York is becoming altogether too complicated, and a trip to England only makes the whole situation worse.

But just as Sally is concluding that she has disastrously misplaced her bets, it looks as if a piece of speculation about an outsider might just give her adventures a happy ending.

P.G. Wodehouse is in sparkling form, in a story set on both sides of the Atlantic in the Roaring '20s.

Right ho, Jeeves: don't miss more from P.G. Wodehouse.

    "long live wodehouse"

    While the story is clasic Wodehouse (post 'school stories' and pre-Wooster), the narration by Frederick Davidson leaves much to be desired. His rendition of American accents is stilted yet robotic, which unfortunately distracts the listenter from savoring the comedy that Wodehouse is known for. Four stars for the story, but only one for the audiobook narrator.

    "probably wodehouse's best plot yet !"
    If you could sum up The Adventures of Sally in three words, what would they be?

    really great plot


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sally- so kind and helpful but determined and humorous as well


    Have you listened to any of Frederick Davidson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Just as good. His voices and accents are brilliant and varied


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end was a delight. There had been so many twists and turns that it was not at all predictable


    Any additional comments?

    Considering how many books Wodehouse wrote, I am constantly amazed by his brilliant plots and although everyone loves the Blandings novels and Jeeves and Wooster, he is constantly inventing new characters both American and English in his other books- fantastic!

    "non-vintage wodehouse, iffy narration"

    The Adventures of Sally is an early Wodehouse (1922) before he really got into his stride with Jeeves and Blandings Castles stories. His trademarks of superb prose, affectionate humour and daft yet intricate plots are all in evidence but they are not in the same class as vintage Wodehouse.

    Frederick Davidson is a very fine narrator with the right book - for example his Vanity Fair would be hard to beat. But his naturally ironic style simply does not suit the book. You need a narrator like Martin Jarvis or Jonathan Cecil who are both past masters with Wodehouse.

    I could not recommend this audiobook to anyone but a dyed-in-the-wool Wodehouse fan (as I am!). I am not sure whether there is another version, but if not, better to read the book.
