Publisher's Summary

Jeeves stays his hand. Yes, that's right. Even though a particularly well-upholstered friend of Aunt Agatha chucks her bleary-eyed milk sot of a son, Bertie, for a month. Jeeves refuses to rally to the cause. Of course if Bertie would simply throw out the offensive tie and hat, things might be smoothed over soon enough. But Bertie, just this once, has decided to be firm.

    "Not the best version"
    Any additional comments?

    This is of course, a classic faultless Wodehouse story. However the enjoyment was compromised by the narrator. B.J. Harrison seems a decent enough story teller but the the wrong choice for a Jeeves and Wooster. His accent is completely wrong. I could not place the accent but what is needed here, bearing in mind that the stories are written in the first personas if spoken by Bertie Wooster, is someone speaking in middle class English (Received English) or the English spoken in upper-class Edwardian society. Anything else simply does not work. A much better version appears in Chapter 3 of 'Carry on Jeeves' narrated by Jonathan Cecil under the Chapter heading 'The Unbidden Guest'. True it is more expensive but there are ten chapters here, each a gem of a short story.

    "good enough"

    Enjoyable listening apart from an irritating transatlantic twang creeping in occasionally, but not enough to really distractt.
