Publisher's Summary

Having dispatched Aunt Agatha’s young son, Thos, to his seaside Borstal, Bertie Wooster has been summoned to Deverill Hall, Hampshire, to lend a hand with the village entertainment. He has two other tasks on hand: one is to ensure that his old pal Catsmeat’s beloved Gertrude is never left alone with the Byronic Esmond Haddock; the other is to ensure that the Deverill aunts (of whom there are many) take goofy Gussie Fink-Nottle to their respective bosoms. But when Bertie is in charge, an imbroglio is sure to follow. Time to call on Jeeves.

Utterly Charming and whimsically HILARIOUS

Love ALL P. G. Wodehouse novels and short stories, and no one narrates his Genius creations as well as Jonathon Cecil. This is one of my FAVE Bertie Wooster and Jeeves adventures - completely delightful. Thank you, Audible.com! 😂👏🥰

Top notch!

One of my absolute favorite Jeeves novels, and J. Cecil's narration is fabulous. Aunts abound, and confusion ensues; Jeeves saves the day in the end.

Great performance of an unusual Jeeves and Bertie

A different story: no quarrel between Bertie and Jeeves in the background, some of Bertie's schemes actually succeed, and Bertie actually stands up to an aunt. It's very good throughout, and moments, like the scene where Bertie attempts to prevent Madeline's receiving a letter, are brilliant. I love it.

My favorite so far...and that’s saying a lot

Is is weird to double over laughing to the point where you are drooling and cant catch your breath? If so, I am busted! Doubly enjoyable because the author doesnt have to resort to vulgarity to provide amusement, just a keen observation of human nature. Confession: I almost ran a stop sign once in my sleepy little town while laughing at Bertie and Jeeves on tape in my car. This was years ago and Im still enchanted with them.
