Publisher's Summary

The Times has announced, much to Bertie's astonishment, the news of his engagement to the beautiful Bobbie Wickham. But worse is yet to come...Uncle Tom's antique silver cow-creamer has gone missing. Kipper Herring has libeled his and Bertie's former headmaster, leading British psychiatrist Sir Roderick Glossop, is posing as a butler, and Aunt Dahlia's masterly French chef is in trouble. By a rare stroke of genius, Bertie finds a solution to all these problems, which is to recall Jeeves from his annual holiday. The incomparable manservant sorts everybody out in his usual imperturbable style.

Great Book! "Good" Reader...

I think this book is one of the best in the series - right up there with "Code of the Woosters." I've been working my way through the entire set of Jeeves and Wooster books and have been really enjoying Jonathan Cecil's readings. Some titles had to be picked up elsewhere to get Cecil's version. This book (a.k.a. "Jeeves in the Offing" as British title) is only available with Carmichael doing this title and he or F. Davidson doing the British title. I chose this because the audio sample of Davidson doing Aunt Dahlia's voice was "just wrong" as I heard it. I was glad I chose this. Carmichael's reading grew on me as the book progressed. His Aunt Dahlia was even more bombastic than Cecil's - which IS one of her charms, after all. Carmichael does have his flaws, though. He doesn't differentiate much between people's voices in quick conversations and he gave Bertie a small speech impediment (I missed that if it was mentioned in a previous book) AND his Jeeves doesn't have all the "gravity" I'm used to - but then, Jeeves isn't in this book as much as others. Overall, it's a good choice if they don't do a version by Cecil someday in the future. FYI - Wikipedia has a very helpful list of the entire series in publication order under the "Jeeves" heading. This book comes later in the entire series.

Narrator does a poor job

The narrator does an extremely poor job, and would not recommend this narrator at the very least for any Wodehouse books.
