    "Can't miss for Wodehouse fans!"
    What did you love best about Young Men in Spats?

    The best thing about this recording is the way Jonathan Cecil delivers the narration--he's an excellent and expressive reader.


    What about Jonathan Cecil’s performance did you like?

    His vocal characterizations are amazing and consistent, and a great fit for the material.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I've listened to it more than once because I enjoy it so much. This is a collection of short stories featuring different characters from the Wodehouse imagination.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad it's unabridged, because I don't want to miss a word of Wodehouse's humor!

    Story
    "Spats. Cats. Hats. This Book has Everything."

    One of the outstanding collections of Wodehouse short stories. Eleven delightful tales, the best being "Noblesse Oblige", "Uncle Fred Flits By", "Archibald and the Masses", "Trouble Down at Tudsleigh" and "Tried in the Furnace", with everything else running a close second.

    "Good-Bye to All Cats" contains what is possibly the funniest description of a character in all of Wodehouse: "She was like a chunk of ice cream with spikes all over it".

    I've always thought that the last story, "The Fiery Wooing of Mordred" was a shade off the Master's usual high standards, but I've come to realize that feeling is merely due to the fact that it's the last story--and I know that I'll have to go back to Real Life again once it's over.
