Publisher's Summary

Trapped in rural Steeple Bumpleigh, a man less stalwart than Bertie Wooster would probably have given way at the knees. For among those present were Florence Craye, to who Bertie had once been engaged...and her new fiance 'Stilton' Cheesewright, who regarded Bertie as a snake in the grass...also Zenobia Hopwood and her guardian Lord Worplesdon, whose violent antipathy to 'Boko' Fittleworth amounted to obsession...and that biggest blot on the landscape, Edwin the Boy Scout, doing acts of kindness out of sheer malevolence. All Bertie's forebodings were fully justified. For in his efforts to oil the wheels of commerce, promote the course of true love, and avoid the consequences of a vendetta, he became the prey of all and sundry. Complete disaster was only avoided by the genius of Jeeves, who extricated the young master with a ploy as smoothly executed as it was brilliantly conceived.

Great story & reader, quality is not wonderful!

I fell in love with Wodehouse after hearing "Code of the Woosters" and ran back to Audible to get the rest of the series (especially with Cecil reading). I was disappointed when hearing these more expensive BBC recordings. My download was of poor quality, and often there were pockets of severe static (at MP3 quality). BUT, all in all the story is wonderful and the reader (in my opinion) is one of the best for Wooster and Jeeves.

muddy bonbons

Reading PG Wodehouse is like eating candy--perhaps bonbons. And the narrator, Jonathan Cecil, does a brilliant job bringing Wodehouse's already so animated characters to full life. The only unfortunate part of the experience was the quality of the recording--often the sound is muddled--not so much that you can't hear, but if sound quality is important to you, you will be frustrated at times. Still, with that caveat, I can assure you that listening to this, Wodehouse and Cecil will bring you much joy--in the morning or any time of day you choose to listen.
