Publisher's Summary

Sir George Pyke is quite disappointed in his son Roderick's business acumen. Roderick, unlike his old man, lacks the aggressive drive required of a business tycoon. So the elder Pyke resolves to marry him off to the sprightly Felicia, who has enough spark to manage any man and may just do him a world of good. All is going well until Bill West arrives from New York. Felicia recognizes in this strong, ambitious chap the man for whom she should forsake all others - but making their way to the altar may be easier said than done.

This romantic comedy from master humorist P. G. Wodehouse is sure to delight, whether you're new to his work or a longtime fan.

Very, very silly, as expected - but fun!

Where does Bill the Conqueror rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I listen to books like this at night to help me go to sleep so I can't really compare it to books I listen to seriously.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bill!

Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

Simon Vance does a great job on all the characters. His talent enhanced the listening experience!

If you could take any character from Bill the Conqueror out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Oh, please! These people are not real. All the characters are rather ridiculous. I cannot even imagine myself in their world.

Finally, A P.G. Wodehouse we hadn't heard before!

Highly entertaining, classic Wodehouse fun with action split between New York and London. Competent narration. Highly recommend for Wodehouse fans.

Simon Vance is too dry!

I find it impossible to assess the book because Simon Vance gave such a serious reading that I got little pleasure out of it. This book is early Wodehouse, and, while it's interesting to see how he developed his style, it would take a special reader to make this book really fun. Sadly Simon Vance is not that reader.

A fun listen

In traditional Wodhouse fashion this is just a fun listen. The characters are rich in attributes and a joy to follow. I highly recommend.
