Publisher's Summary

Everyone - even Augustus the cat - has cause to be obliged to Jeeves when he manages to retrieve the infamous Book - the book which lays bare the private lives of three-quarters of the upper classes. And which could prove to be political dynamite at the Market Snodsbury by-election.

Much Obliged, Jeeves

The book is quite funny, but the reader Dinsdale Landen does not do it justice. He has a pleasant voice, and I'm sure he's very talented - but he reads too fast, crowding the sentences, and the voices of different speakers are too much alike. I found it difficult to tell who was speaking and when the speaker changed, and I kept wishing that it was Martin Jarvis or Jonathan Cecil reading, instead. It was heavy going, to quote Mr. Wodehouse.....

I'd give it 5 stars if Jarvis or Cecil was reading.

Difficult narrator

Compared to some of the other narrators of P.G. Wodehouse's books, this one was not pleasant to listen to--the characters often sounded alike and the narration seemed rushed. Not a bad PGW story; wish it would have been a different narrator.

Good stuff from the master

I love listening to P G Wodehouse audiobooks. He is such a good writer that it is sheer pleasure to go at the pace of the narrator so you can savour every word and chortle at every joke.

PGW is on top form in this quite short Jeeves outing. Dinsdale Landen is a fine narrator - really enjoying himself and bringing the book splendidly to life - but he goes just a tad too fast for my liking. Still, well worth a listen and excellent entertainment.

Narrator in a bit of a rush

Story was fine, a bit of a rehash of elements of other stories but some new material and characters too. I found the narration a bit too rushed, often had to skip back to listen again to sentences. Also the style for Jeeves wasn't quite right - intonation going up at the end of sentences, whereas I always think of Jeeves as being more sepulchral. All in all it was fine but I prefer Jonathan Cecil's reading, and the earlier stories.
