Publisher's Summary

Things on board the R.M.S. Atlantic are terribly, terribly complicated...Monty Bodkin loves Gertrude, who thinks he likes Lotus Blossom, a starlet, who definitely adores Ambrose, who thinks that she has a thing for his brother, Reggie, who is struck by Mabel Spence, sister-in-law of Ikey Llewellyn (movie mogul, Ambrose's prospective employer, and reluctant smuggler), but hasn't the means to marry her.With well-meaning but unhelpful ship's steward Albert Peasemarch and a toy mouse with a screw-top head thrown in for good measure, it will, indead, take the luck of the Bodkins to sort it all out.

Well written - well read

The publisher's summary sums up the plot very well - and Wodehouse is in his usual excellent form devising twists and turns, some of which you see coming and look forward to and others which take you by surpise.



Jonathan Cecil narrates this very well, handling a number of different accents with professional competence.



I listened to this with my father, a lifelong Wodehouse fan, on a journey from Buckinghamshire to Inverness-shire and we were only disappointed that our destination was not somewhat further away.

The Luck of the Bodkins

This a most enjoyable book. The reader Jonatha Cecil makes the characters come to life. If like P. G. Wodehouse you will love version of The Luck of the Bodkins.
