PG Wodehouse at his best!
This is one of the best of Bertie and Jeeves! All the regular nuts are present and waiting to become a bit more cracked..Gussie, Madeline and the gang get all mixed up with who is marrying who. As usual Jeeves is in the background making sure Bertie stays single while fixing all the rest.
I listen to the Jeeves series while gardening and at times I laughed out loud..I am sure the neighbors think I'm nuts too!
This is a great listen for those long airline rides as long as you don't mind people staring at you when you burst out laughing.

Ah, Wodehouse! He has created England's most lovable nitwit, Bertie Wooster, and his most impeccable gentleman's gentleman, Jeeves. The machinations of the plot are the usual predictable romantic farce, but the point of the humor is the style (with Bertie as the voice of the author) and Bertie's frantic efforts to see his world as conforming to his preconceptions. Three characters spend most of the book impersonating each other, a dog named Samuel Goldwyn is nabbed by the village constable, and a gaggle of five aunts threaten to spoil the future of all the young lovers. The reader of this audiobook, Jonathan Cecil, is superb, effortlessly shifting between Bertie's joyful idiocy to Jeeves' formal deference. This book is not just good. It is jolly jolly good.
