Publisher's Summary

Trapped in rural Steeple Bumpleigh, a man less stalwart than Bertie Wooster would probably give way at the knees.

For among those present were Florence Craye, to whom Bertie had once been engaged and her new fiancé 'Stilton' Cheesewright, who sees Bertie as a snake in the grass. And that biggest blot on the landscape, Edwin the Boy Scout, who is busy doing acts of kindness out of sheer malevolence.

All Bertie's forebodings are fully justified. For in his efforts to oil the wheels of commerce, promote the course of true love and avoid the consequences of a vendetta, he becomes the prey of all and sundry. In fact only Jeeves can save him.

    "Great Story but............"

    I know all of Wodehouse's work inside out and I love this story. However I was very deeply disappointed in the quality of Format 4. This has been taken from an old tape. You can hear the hiss. There are gaps at the end of tapes. Audio quality cahngs frequently. It is about bearable on the IPOD, impossible says my daughter on the CD player in the car. I was really disappointed in the quality especially after the superb quality of Norell and Strange.

    Cecil is a good narrator.

    "Perfect Bertie nonsense!"

    Classic Wodehouse fluff, wonderfully constructed and excellently performed. Sheer delight from start to finish. The final denouement is as satisfying as it is inevitable!

    "Great story & reader, quality is not wonderful!"

    I fell in love with Wodehouse after hearing "Code of the Woosters" and ran back to Audible to get the rest of the series (especially with Cecil reading). I was disappointed when hearing these more expensive BBC recordings. My download was of poor quality, and often there were pockets of severe static (at MP3 quality). BUT, all in all the story is wonderful and the reader (in my opinion) is one of the best for Wooster and Jeeves.

    "muddy bonbons"

    Reading PG Wodehouse is like eating candy--perhaps bonbons. And the narrator, Jonathan Cecil, does a brilliant job bringing Wodehouse's already so animated characters to full life. The only unfortunate part of the experience was the quality of the recording--often the sound is muddled--not so much that you can't hear, but if sound quality is important to you, you will be frustrated at times. Still, with that caveat, I can assure you that listening to this, Wodehouse and Cecil will bring you much joy--in the morning or any time of day you choose to listen.

    "Truly a joy - except for the audio quality"

    This was my first Wodehouse book and I can now understand why so many love his writings. Nonstop pure entertainment, VERY British, a pleasure. Now I know where the statement "ask Jeeves" comes from.

    I would have rated this 5 stars were it not for the quality of the audio. Sometimes clear, sometimes muffled and sometimes at a different speed, the sound quality detracted from the pleasure of the story. The reader, Jonathan Cecil, was excellent.

    "Lively, sound could be better"

    We are Wodehouse fans and listened to this (well thumbed in our library) on a recent trip. Mr. Cecil's reading is lively. Our sound system is very good in the car, but this recording had unneveness in volume. However, we just turned the vol up. We would recommend, but expected better quality.

    "Petty Larceny by Audible"

    If there were any justice in the universe P.G. Wodehouse and Jonathan Cecil respectively would be able to pull a hood over the head of whoever is responsible for this sound and beat them with a stick until they lost consciousness then wake them up and beat them some more.

    "bad audio quality"

    I love Jonathan Cecil, but the audio quality sounds like he's reading under water. Shame.

    If you only read two Jeeves books in your life, read this and The Code of The Woosters---I promise you won't be disappointed!

    "Jonathan Cecil brings Wodehouse to life!"

    best. narrator. ever. Just love Cecil + Wodehouse in a typically rollicking take of Jeeves misadventures.

    "Fun Read"

    As always, a great storyline packed with interesting characters and personalities. How the human mind avoids uncomfortable honesty and replaces it with ever problematic diversions.
