One of the best in the series
One of the best novels in the series. If you're new to Wodehouse, you might want to try his Bertie and Jeeves short stories first. But this longer story is just priceless. Good narrator.

This Might Be My Favorite
I have downloaded several of the Bertie and Jeeves audiobooks here and I love this one. First of all, this narrator, captures the personalities beautifully. Not only is his voice perfectly suited to most of the characters, but his timing is right on target as well. For Wodehouse stories, timing and voice characterization construct the path to fully enjoying the audiobook. I would like this narrator to do all of the Bertie and Jeeves stories.
Secondly, part of what makes Wodehouse so hilariously stimulating is his turn-of-phrase, and in this story he really shines. I would highly recommend this audiobook. I also agree with Theresa that those new to Wodehouse might want to start with one of his Bertie and Jeeves book of short stories first. The reason why, is that the reader would become familiar with the different characters within a shorter plot. Part of what makes Wodehouse such a pleasure are the twisting and turning plots with lots of surprise. This takes little bit of concentration which would be less diluted when you are already aquainted with the fabulous characters.
