If I were grading this book I'd give it a "B." It's worth listening to. The narrator, Jonathan Cecil, raises the quality of the story by an irritated, upper-crust accent. Cecil is at his best doing the voice of the Sargent-Major, who is decidedly not upper-crust yet is (in my opinion) the funniest character in the book. A fun entertainment.

Wodehouse often said his books were musical comedies without the music. It's an apt description, and certainly fits Money For Nothing. You've got your young hero, the girl he can't seem to get engaged to, and some crooks to add some spice to the mix. As crooks go, Chimp Twist, Dolly and Soapy Malloy aren't very good, so you have menace which isn't really very menacing. With Wodehouse, it's more HOW the story is told, as opposed to the plot itself. And I was just in the mood for something light. Jonathan Cecil does a fine job, although a few times he sounded like he really, really needed a glass of water.
