Best Wodehouse narrator
Jonathan Cecil has just become my favorite Wodehouse narrator after listening to 2 titles narrated by him and that is saying some after having listened to Frederick Davidson's excellent efforts in the past. Mr. Cecil does an excellent Bertie making him sound the perfect lovable and urbane nitwit we've all come to know and love. His Jeeves is if anything even more accomplished with just the proper amount of wisdom, subservience and pedantry. He does women's voices very well and you would swear this was a full cast production when you factor in the voices for Gussie Fink-Nottle, Roderick Spode, Sir Watkyn Bassett, Stinker Pinker, Stiffy Byng, Madeline Bassett and of course Aunt Dahlia. The story itself stands on its own and the author's reputation and requires no comments from me. Highly recommended title. Enjoy!

Cecil's voice plus Wodehouse's plot = delight
If Wodehouse were still with us, I feel confident he would grant Jonathan Cecil exclusive rights to all future audio interpretations of his novels and stories. Cecil's vocal characterizations are nothing short of virtuosic (if, as Bertie would say, that is the word I want). By the climactic scene you would swear there are five or six different people in the room with him. And of course, Wodehouse's comedy is as highly honed as ever set down in English. A hilarious collaboration of author and interpreter, this makes for an especially good antidote to rush-hour traffic!
