A travesty

Dreadful..the narrator is just awful, stumblinbly read with a mouthful of mush and an ill matched accent. Unlistenable.

Not Narrated - Blandly Read

You need to know the narration is flat reading without animation, emotion, or any other sign of true narration. I own dozens of Audible titles but I have never experienced anything like this book. I am returning it. Also, there is light music playing in the background during the reading! No idea why, but maybe it is meant to keep the listener entertained since the "narration" doesn't entertain.

There are better versions.

As others have stated, there is annoying music over the audio, but that isn't the worst part. This is a poor reader and obviously no one cared to edit/re-record problems sections.

Many mistakes + overbearing background music

Deaver Brown often stumbles over his words and mispronounces English words that he seems unfamiliar with. There is also a very loud background music playing at all times which detracts greatly from the story. I suggest finding another version and avoiding this one.

Awful music

This performance was rendered unbearable by intrusive background music. The American accent of the narrator was also inappropriate for the book. I didn’t get past the first 5 minutes

Avoid if you enjoy Wodehouse

As other reviewers have said this recording has two problems, the narrator and the dreadful background music. I wish I had read the other reviews before purchasing. Whoever thought of using an American narrator for a quintessentially English novel needs to think again before recording another of the normally very funny Jeeves and Wooster series. It was not the narrator's fault either that he had to compete with the rather loud background music which also makes it incredibly difficult for the listener to concentrate on the story. I gave up at the start of Chapter Two. I consider this a waste of money and am surprised to find this recording among the normally excellent productions provided by Audible. Fortunately I have the book in another electronic form and shall no doubt enjoy it in comparative silence which is only interrupted by my snorts of laughter..
