Publisher's Summary

On doctor's orders, Bertie Wooster retires to sample the bucolic delights of Maiden Eggesford. But his idyll is rudely shattered by Aunt Dahlia who wants him to nobble a racehorse. Similar blots on Bertie's horizon come in the shape of Major Plank, the African explorer, Vanessa Cook, proud beauty and 'moulder of men', and Orlo Porter, who seems to have nothing else to do but to think of sundering Bertie's head from his body.

Always entertaining! Excellent Narration

I am hooked on these P.G. Wodehouse titles, and this one is very light and entertaining, as anticipated. Wonderful narration!

Another triumph

PG Wodehouse and Jonathan Cecil score another hit. Bertie Wooster once again gets himself tangled in a ghastly mess, this time involving a cat-loving horse and and aunt who, not being a gentleman, can't tell the difference between right and wrong (according to Hoyle). My face hurt from grinning so much.

With this audiobook, I've gone through all the Jeeves and Wooster stories - at least all the ones that are available from Audible. A number of gifted narrators have contributed to this collection: besides Cecil, who ranks as my favorite, there have been performances by Martin Jarvis, Ian Carmichael, and Dinsdale Landen. Smiles, chuckles, and congratulations all around. I can't wait to start all over again.

Great Fun

I love listening to P G Wodehouse's books. You really appreciate the stunning quality of his writing, and you can savour the daftness of his meticulously plotted stories. And they always cheer me up with their gentle humour.

Aunts aren't Gentlemen is I think one of the later Jeeves stories and if truth be told it doesn't quite reach the heights of the earlier works. But it's still pretty good.

Jonathan Cecil might have been born to narrate these books. He is superb and brings P G Wodehouse's fantastic invention to life. The recording was made a long time ago so sound quality is not the best but you get used to it quickly.

Treat yourself to 4-5 hours of fun and escape!

Jonathan Cecil IS Bertie and a joy to listen to

I believe this is a much later work and may have been right up in the 1970s.
Lovely though Cecil is to listen to - the work is a bit laboured.

I found most of the woven story predictable and being a real fan of Jeeves & Bertie (best of all narrated by Cecil), I was able to plot-spot early on. Wont do spoilers though.

Having said all that - it was blessed relief from John Humprhreys on Radio 4 or Chris Evans on Radio 2 driving to work (though, oddly, never on the way home).
