Publisher's Summary

Trapped in rural Steeple Bumpleigh, a man less stalwart than Bertie Wooster would probably give way at the knees, for among those present are Florence Craye, to whom Bertie had once been engaged; her new fiancé, "Stilton" Cheesewright, who sees Bertie as a snake in the grass; and that biggest blot on the landscape, Edwin the Boy Scout, who is busy doing acts of kindness out of sheer malevolence. All of Bertie's forebodings are fully justified, for in his efforts to oil the wheels of commerce, promote the course of true love, and avoid the consequences of a vendetta, he becomes the prey of all and sundry. In fact only Jeeves can save him.

I want to go to a party in Purgatory with PG!

This review is for every PG Wodehouse book I have listened to narrated by Jonathan Cecil. Joy from start to finish, not just in the morning. If you want to laugh, and laugh, and just forget all your cares - because deep down you feel, you know they are merely surface illusions in a truly delightful, joyful God-given universe - listen to this book, and every other PG Wodehouse book you can get your hands on. Jonathan Cecil seems to have been born to narrate them. Only problem is, I can't bring myself to listen to other Wodehouse novels not narrated by him, so I hope he eventually records them all. Please! Although of course, I WILL eventually listen to every PG Wodehouse book no matter what. And since the plot is secondary to the experience, I can look forward to laughing joyfully until the end as I listen to them over and over again!

Joy in the Earbuds

One of the most delightful offerings from the Wodehouse library of lunacy. If you've never read or heard this one before, I envy you the experience you're about to enjoy. Meanwhile, I’ll stop saying I miss Frederick Davidson’s performance of this comic tour de force, and just say Jonathan Cecil does a fine job at the mic.

Wodehouse at his best

This period and series in his writing are Wodehouse at his best. The characters and plots and word play are a joy. Don’t get me wrong, his work is never a waste of time. But the Jeeves and Wooster, and the Castle Blandings stories are something special.

Romantic Hilarity Ensues!

This is one of the very best novels featuring the adventures of the lovable bumbler, Bertie, and his infinitely superior valet, Jeeves.

Put that together with Jonathan Cecil, the DEFINITIVE reader of P.G. Wodehouse, and...

Sheer delight

A classic farce with the ever brilliant and amusing Jeeves. A clever trifle that keeps you smiling at the foibles of human nature.

Excellent Performance

Fun performance. Narrator used different intonations for different characters. Did a marvelous job. Only weakness is that a few of the women's voices sounded too similar.

exceptional performance and story

I loved it. Mr Wodehouse was a master of comedy. I wish I could have had the pleasure of meeting him. Mr Cecil is great in his performance as well. Ive always looked for his name as the reader.

A real treat to listen to.

P. G. Wodehouse at his best. And the narrator is perfect as usual. Lots of complications and Jeeves there to untangle them. And a few real laugh out loud guffaws thrown in.

A Joyful listen

Even though each book in the series is basic the same , I still thoroughly love everyone. Other listeners may find this series boring but those who like ridiculous Eng humor will love it.
